BUT WTH has happened to parenting, these days?
The child stepped on a cracked manhole cover, falling into the septic. The mother was apparently right there to scream for help as the child was under for only 4 minutes, which included time for rescuers to respond, find the child and pull her out. I don't feel the mother was negligent. Sometimes things just happen! My youngest son fell and broke his arm at the age of 2. I was standing right next to him when it happened. I couldn't neither have foreseen nor prevented the fall. I dare anyone here to call me a negligent mother.
