    You only have to read the journals on here to see the amount of pain people are in and how fragile they are and they have found bubhub to be a safe place to share this part of themselves.

    Words matter. They can lift someone up and they can kick them when they're down. It's not about condoning dangerous behaviour or turning a blind eye but it's about realising your power.

    You might think you're just commenting on a specific article or that you're entitled to be angry and to judge and I guess you are but this is a community and why anyone wants to continually hurt people in their community after they've been told "Hey, you're hurting her, please stop", well I don't get it.

    I know people can choose to leave if they can't hack it or they need to take ownership of their feelings (no one can make you feel inferior without your consent and all that jazz) but sometimes people don't have anywhere else to go and sometimes they are judging themselves more harshly than anyone else could.

    Anyway that's my ramble of the day and I've gone back and toward about whether to press send but meh too late now...
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    You don't think I've suffered tragedy? Pft. Of course I've forgotten little unimportant things but this is about forgetting a child! Big difference.
    Those who can't handle my honesty.. that's ok you don't have too. It doesn't mean I lack empathy saying how I feel. I just hope those that have had near misses forgetting their children have implemented measures such as putting your bag on the back seat to reduce the risk or if you have so much going on in your life you aren't coping seek help or make changes where you can.

    I don't think it is your honesty that is the problem. Lot's of people are honest on this forum but don't tend to upset people over and over again. Sure you can have your opinions, but throwing around blame and coming across as self righteous and saying that things like that would never happen to you because you are "caring" and implying thus, that anyone who has found themselves in this situation are not , is not really the same thing. The problem with calling people out on their lack of empathy - is that people who don't have it, don't realise they don't have it.

    The only words I have for this sanctimonious dribble I can't say in polite company or on a public forum.

    The sad thing is I could totally see myself doing something like this. I'm such a space cadet! Since having a baby, I have started always, without exception (even when the baby is not with me) leaving my purse in the back seat. Because I'd never walk away from the car without my purse. Yes that's right, I'm more likely to forget my baby than my purse. There I said it. I'm not the only one though - it's a thing.

    Anyway, I have huge sympathy for anybody who has been in this situation.

    I was thinking I might leave my phone in the back, because like you with your purse, I would never get out without my phone.

    I can't imagine the horror...sheer horror.

    Sorry if this has already been posted in this thread.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifest...a52_story.html

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read this article if you are judging these parents.
    It is long.
    It is horrifying.
    It will change your views forever.

    I have read it several times and every time I cry and cry and cry. It won the Pulitzer prize and it is one of the most powerful things I have ever read.

    (sorry if already posted, trying to wrangle two kids).

    Eta, I just went back and saw it was posted on page 3. My mind boggles to think you could read that entire article and not understand how it happens and empathise with the parents.

    Yeah I frequently leave my hand bag in the car but always have my phone on me.


    Anyway clearly Blessedwith3boys loves her kids more than us and is a better person in general. I'm sure the fact she loves to point it out, and also others failings, wins her many friends in life.

    Hey @Blessedwith3boys have you read the journals on here on those struggling? I'm guessing not by the fact you're still trying to kick others when down.
