"The house just became a mess. There would be food all over the living room, along with piles of unwashed laundry and all of Ewans toys scattered everywhere"
"Kerry decided to make hot chocolate but in a freak accident a cup of boiling water was knocked on to the friend. He was treated for burns at hospital and nurses reported the incident to social services."
So the place is a mess, not just untidy but if there was food everywhere unsanitary and a child is burned in the house - assuming the child was the same age that's a 4 year old.
