Wow.... I don't know why these stories coming from America keep surprising me, but they do. What an awful situation. The mother must have felt so guilty.

Why would you put vodka in a baby bottle?!
That poor mother I feel sorry for her

Some people should just not be parents.

Glad she wasn't charged but he was. I hope she gets the help she needs to escape him.

From what I read he put it in a water bottle she usually uses to mix formula with. I suspect it was to fly under the radar with his drinking. Either he was attending an event that was alcohol free or he has a drinking problem and was using it to cover up his drinking.
The poor mother, she was not to blame and then he beat her for using his vodka. So sick of seeing so many DV stories lately. Makes me so freaking angry.

- a lady whose newborn died because she was diluting her breastmilk because she couldn't afford formula
- a family that had their baby removed from their care after being diagnosed with failure to thrive and a significant amount of medical malpractice - the results of which were blamed on the parents
- numerous parents who have had their children removed by CPS on a single report of something like letting their grade 6 child walk home from school.

Re: DV - me, too. I wonder whether the prevalence of stories is reflective of the media picking it up more or whether the number of incidences is increasing. Regardless, I really hope that our government decides to address the issue soon, and stop sweeping it aside. But that is a whole other coversation/thread.

As I said, I didn't mean to imply otherwise. I can understand that my wording may have indicated I did. I do seem to get a disproportionate number of US stories through my FB feed, so seem to be reading a lot of negative stories from America lately. I am well aware that there are horrible people everywhere. I've recently stopped watching the news because the negativity has been to much for me in the last few weeks. Once upon a time, I was a teacher. I heard devastating stories about my students while teaching. I wish it wasn't the case. I guess we can be grateful for the good people in the world.
