Child Left By Mistake At Chuck E. Cheese’s
March 7, 2012 by staff
Child Left By Mistake At Chuck E. Cheese’s, According to the ABC News, a couple from Bel Air, Md., “forgot” their 3-year-old daughter Harmony at a Chuck E. Cheese’s birthday party and only remembered when they saw the girl’s picture on the 11 p.m. news.
She approached a staff member requesting something to drink and police were called when no responsible adult could be located. The story shows the parents did not forget the child but instead they thought she was going home with other relatives.
Saying parents “forgot” the child paints a different image. The couple has not been identified or charged as authorities found no wrongdoing. Happily, innocent until proven guilty still exists. Dramatizing an accident with misleading phrases is irresponsible.
It might have been somewhat lax of the parents to have not determined the child was going home with family. I’m sure they’ve kicked themselves hard enough. I can understand how it happened. In fact, it could have been our family on the news several times.
Our third son has always been mind-bendingly curious; in his investigative wanderings he nearly lost himself several times. Twice he got into a relative’s vehicle to ride home from a family event: once unbeknown to us and once unbeknown to us and the relative.
Remember the flap in the 1990s over those kid leashes parents used to corral children with itchy feet? I needed two, chest and wrist, to keep my nomad shackled to me. I was criticized for being overprotective; it’s easy to fault someone’s choices when they’re not yours to make.
