C, I’m not sure you understand the severity of the situation. Read the article again & try to comprehend just how disgracefully dressed this mother was. I suppose you find this acceptable? I’m assuming you also think it’s ok to hit children as well? Your ‘not bothered’ attitude to this shocking story is a reflection of all that’s wrong in society today. This is undoubtedly a serious case of child abuse & should be dealt with appropriately. Nobody can foretell the psychological impact that this may have on the poor child in years to come. This woman needs to start acting more responsibly and stop dressing up like some two bob slag.
