Here are two different cases of extreme negligence by parents which lead to their child’s death

In both of these cases, I know these parent’s didn’t intentionally kill their child, and I’m sure the extreme grief that they are feeling is genuine.

That being said, let’s take a look at what these parents did.

In the first case, in Jackson, Mississippi, a mother left her 6-year-old son alone in the car… with the engine running… and with the doors unlocked… at 1 a.m.

Not very bright of her to do that.

In what came as a surprise to no one except the mother, her car was stolen.

The car thieves fatally shot the child in the head.

In the second case, in Beveren, Belgium, the parents, who ran a “natural food store,” decided to raise their baby on the same foods that they sold to adults, many of which happened to be very low calorie.

Not very wise of them to do that.

In what came as a surprise to no one except the parents, the baby starved to death. At the time of death, the baby was seven months old, but weighed only nine pounds.

Do I think these parents, in either case, were deliberately trying to harm their child? No.

But I do think that in both of these cases, what the parents did was incredibly stupid, and constituted of a massive degree of neglect.
