Along with your theories
If a child falls into a pool and drowns
Who is to blame?
Where are the boundaries to caring for your child?
You guys are actually scaring me
You really can't see a problem with a 2 year old and a 5 year old being allowed in a public toilet alone?
So so wrong
I think you are all admonishing any fault of your own as parents
I fear for your children
We are their guardians until they can care for themselves
Take some responsibility
It's so distressing that no one is thinking they have any responsibility
Of course people think that taking precautions to keep your kids safe is what you do as a parent. And yes, some kids are killed or hurt because of genuine negligence from the parents. But what is to be gained by saying `this would never have happened if the parents had not allowed the kids in the toilet, instead of saying `this would never have happened if there had not been a rapist hiding in the toilet'.
The next kid that went in that toilet could just have easily been a 10 year old. Would that have raised such outrage at neglectful parents? When do we stop and say, OK, the only person who is at fault here is the person who committed the actual crime.

OK first of all the op NEVER said anything about ADULT females being raped, that's not what her post was about AT ALL, all of you brought that up and totally changed the subject and she NEVER said the sicko that did it wasn't to blame.
This is about a 2 and 6 YEAR old, not adults. This is about a PUBLIC TOILET BLOCK not their home or their school. I'm sure their parents feel horrible BUT the this is a country with free speech and the op is allowed the have her opinion.
I personally would NEVER let my small children go into a public toilet alone, or walk to school alone and no I am never blind to the fact that anyone could hurt my kids. SO I take reasonable measures to make sure that they are safe.
