Dad Didn't Know He Was Home Alone
Late last Friday morning, a social worker was visiting clients at a trailer park in Wisconsin Rapids. She observed a young boy wandering down the road wearing a shirt, a diaper and one sock.
Authorities went to the mobile home where the boy lived and found his father sleeping. The father did not know his son was missing.
Authorities immediately took custody of the boy and another child found in the trailer.
There may ultimately be many reasons why dad is an unfit parent - but is this incident, in and of itself, one of them? Every time a child gets loose from a house, is it child neglect on the part of the parents?
