Which is why I don't understand the emphasis on Chloe sleeping in a lounge room so the family must be dodgy. Maybe they were on a waiting list for a bigger house? Department housing lists are years long. They had a roof over their heads and made do with what little space they had.

    I hope Garth gets help for his addiction and the system doesn't fail this family.
    Not having enough bedrooms for your kids is a possible likely indication that:
    1) the parents don't have enough money to support their kids and/or
    2) the parents don't rate their kids need for personal space and Identity highly.

    This case clearly fits into category 1. And yeah there may be struggling hard working families who are trying their best to get a bigger house so their kids can have a bedroom. Good on them. Not in this case though. It's not the department of housings fault. These parents have made bad, shady and illegal decisions which led to them not being able to support their kids.

    Wow. Great suggestion camping lady. I bet that would have made the child (probably already stressed with having to live across two homes) feel like an important part of the family.

It's unfair to say they don't deserve to be parents when you don't know if anyone has even reached out and tried to help them, they deserve support!
    They are not to blame for Chloe's abduction, that blame solely lies with the perpetrator/s.
    I disagree that they are not to blame for Chloes abduction. They certainly played a part. If the Dad didn't rack up thousands of dollars in debt for speed it never would've happened.

    How about they take some responsibility for their actions?

    People like the morcombes - they were blameless in Daniels disappearance. These parents are not.

    I read 2 different quotes. One was sleeping in the lounge room, which I don't judge. One was sleeping in front of the TV which I do judge. I know judging other parents is wrong but we all do it mentally.

    Completely agree. They knew exactly what they were doing when they got involved with drug dealer scum bags and racked up drug debts, knowing they have young children to care for and protect. Makes me sick.

    With the information getting put out there, you really can't blame us for feeling concerned and throwing around ideas from our take on it. It's human nature. Im sure our thoughts and feelings being posted in here aren't going to influence what the professionals decide. But everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Chloe's parents should get their heads checked if they honestly think people aren't going to make judgments after all of the information being put out there in the last 24 hours. Actually scrap that, they should get their heads checked for this situation even happening.

    My point is that it is normal for some families.

    really? I feel the opposite. No judgement if the kids were watching a movie, fell asleep, and parents chose not to disturb them, but if the little girl doesn't have a bed to sleep in at all ever.. well.. that's another thing all together.

    I've just read through this whole thread, and as with many many of the other posters I have felt weird about it right from the start. With absolutely no Judgy McJudgey pants on, it all justseemed off from the very start to me.

    Here I go speculating, sorry to those who think I shouldn't, doing it anyway - do you think maybe daddy and "his friends" faked the whole thing? Fake a kidnapping to earn money from media appearances so he can afford to pay his drug debt?

    Who cares where she slept. Doesn't reflect on family IMO. Even of its because they poor not all poor ppl are terrible parents. Conversely I had y own fancy pants room full of toys and crap and had terrible parents. I find that an absurd conclusion to draw

    And of course we are going to talk about it. It's human nature.
