This woman is clearly a nut. "Trust in the Lord" to make sure your unaccompanied child is okay is terrible and inexcusible. Someone should notify social services. I almost feel the need of my atheist powers to strike her down.

It always amazes me how people can use god as an excuse for their poor judgement. If there is a god looking down on this lady, he (or she) is probably pissed.

I remember running into a group of kids outside of Raging Bull one day that was waiting alone outside of the queue. The oldest kid in the bunch was all of six years old and was left in charge of two other kids that were much younger than he was. Concerned that they were out there all alone, I asked them were their parents were. They informed me that they were going on the big roller coaster. That "big roller coaster" had a line that was over an hour long. I ended up flagging down an employee and having security called. Not sure what happened after that, but the pathetic excuse for parenting now a days just astounds me. So many people look at their kids as a burden that is in the way of their enjoyment of things.

Just goes to show you any idiot can have a kid but it takes a special person to be a parent.

When I worked for the carnival on the Gravitron, I had some idiotic parents whose two kids were too small to ride, so they wanted to leave them inside the fenced area while the rode the ride. Mind you the fenced area also enclosed the ride itself, lol.

Like Adam Corrolla said on LoveLine: "I can't own a llama. I can't grow a pot plant in my basement. But anyone can go and have a kid? There's no justice!"

This type of thing isn't really new though. I had to haul a little girl 4 or 5 years old out of a huge public swimming pool at Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park about 1960. Her mother had left her in the wading pool while she went swimming in the adult pool. The little girl got lonely and went looking for mommy. She stepped into the main pool not realizing that the water was far over her head and sank like a stone. Fortunately, I was close enough that she wasn't injured.
