This one is a doozy! We’re always talking about how our crazy society has gotten so careless about children and parenting. Substance abuse is a family killer but stupidity on top of that is even worse…
Here’s one more example of bad parenting and what NOT to do with toddlers in the car. What about car seats??? Child Safety Locks??? This dad is in the running for worst dad of the year!
Two toddlers, just 1 and 2 years old, tumbled out of the family van in a Sheboygan roundabout on Tuesday evening, apparently without their father ever noticing, authorities said.
The 40-year-old father is now facing OWI and child neglect charges.
According to police, witnesses reported seeing the children fall out of the cargo van near South 8th Street and Indiana Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. Hospital staff treated the children for road rash. One of the children was able to provide officers with the family’s name.
One of the children had serious injuries and had to be moved to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
Officers who went to the family’s home said the mother and father were looking for the kids when they arrived.
“The level of impairment, we believe, was a contributing factor to this,” said Capt. James Veeser. “The other factor was these children were not seat-belted. There was a number of other children in the vehicle.”
WHILE SEARCHING FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS HORRIBLE EVENT, IT CAME TO LIGHT THAT THIS ISN’T AN ISOLATED INCIDENT.
We found numerous examples of parents not securing children into a car seat! The kids fell out of the car! Child safety locks too!
