i hope that people are watching over that child, that's all i can say.

Yes and i bet that little mite is still with them, makes other stories/threads on here question the authorities in mine and DH views.

They probably still don't get what the problem is.

God thats awful, happened near me too, I got on a bus one evening and the bus driver was telling us about a couple who had got on the bus on the way there with an older child around 8 and a child in a pushchair, they were both so drunk they were falling all over, the woman even fell off the bus when they got off.

As we were going back down the road we saw the woman with the pushchair being questioned by police, the bus driver stopped and gave his version of events. So he obviously hadn't called the police in the first place hmm.

Why doesn't it say if the child is still with them

Poor poor child, a filthy bottle and sour milk ffs

made me cry that story. What is the matter with people - in what planet do they think that behaviour is acceptable. I hope that child is not with them anymore or is being watched carefully if he is.

sod the drunk charge, hit them with child neglect that is terrible! poor baby

In some senses though, at least they were stupid enough to alert people to their stupidity. I bet there are hundreds of parents leaving their babies at home alone or with a responsible (slightly) older sibling while they go out on the piss. angry sad

But what action has been taken to actually protect that poor child? Could a reasonable person really think that that poor little soul should be left with those parents?

He may or may not go on the at risk register, there will be case conferences, masses of paperwork and electronic records, lots of visits by social workers, will any of that make any difference to his quality of life? I suspect not. sad

people like this shouldn't be having kids...if they want to get pi**ed all the time without kids fair do's, but to have kids coming along with them on their binge session is just plain wrong.
poor kid.

Social services will hopefully have been alerted.
A disgusting example of so-called parenting.
The pair of them should have their reproductive capabilities removed.

agree with skaramble - they probably still don't know what they have done is horribly wrong.

There are wonderful people desperate for children, it just isn't fair that these subhumans have the privilege of life in their care.

the dad looks like a great role model for the poor little mite.i can't believe some parents.feel so sorry for the poor child.

Considering the horror story that haunted us toward the end of last year I hope the baby has been removed from this odious pair forever.

It does make me feel angry enough to suggest the extreme of giving these people implants to prevent children being born and then abused. Implants rather than complete sterilisation to give them a chance to reform their character.

Drink; from someone once married to the child of alcoholics I know it ruins lives for generations and from Sally's excellent link, for centuries too.

Bad parenting is not a new invention.
