    I feel sick for that poor child, however will reserve judgement of the mother until the full story is known.

    Hope the child makes a full recovery
    How can you reserve judgement? She's done it before. There's no excuse. Judge away I say. Stupid woman!

    I agree about reserving judgment and I am careful to do so. Horrible accidents can and do happen.

    But the Townsville airport isn't big. It wouldn't take more than 60 seconds to get from anywhere inside to the carpark. The cruisy attitude towards returning when she was paged that bothers me. Not the leaving itself.

    Quite easily. I don't know her. I don't know what drove her to do it. I don't know if she forgot the child. I don't know if she did it on purpose.

    Simply- I just don't know enough. Who am I to judge?

    Just shocking and it happens too often.

    Recently over here a child was left in the car outside the daycare centre, the father forgot to take the child into the daycare, parked his car near the daycare centre and caught the bus to work as he always does, when he got to the daycare to collect his 1 year old that afternoon and the staff told him the child hadn't been dropped off that morning he then realised his tragic mistake and the baby was found in the car. So very sad.

    This makes me so freaking angry! And it's possibly not the first time she has done it?? Is she trying to kill this child? Car parked in full sun, all windows up... All I can think of is the poor child.

    Are you able to find that thread Nomsie? Im having such a hard time wrapping my head around that concept and I reckon it would be easier if I could read that.

    My first thought was that is so horrible I hope she gets the full penalty. Then I realised her son would go through more trauma missing his mother for 3 years. She should be forced to do parenting classes and first aid/community service.

    I'm so glad they got him out before anything worse happened.

    What is it though? Lack of education? The "she'll be right attitude"? I will only be a minute? Its common sense to me not to do it (leaving out of course those tragic circumtances we've heard in the news) Im not judging her i agree its hard to know what goes through peoples heads though when they make these poor decisions.
