Toddlers found wandering

Published 10:35pm Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Suffolk police are investigating the case of two young children found wandering away from home Wednesday morning.

The call was received at 8:48 a.m., city spokeswoman Diana Klink said. Police found two children, ages 1 and 2, unaccompanied by an adult in the 1300 block of Glen Haven Drive.

The mother was later located, Klink said. She could not say how far away the children live. The case is under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.

      Yeah. Must have been napping for a while because they walked over two football fields to my house with only diapers on in the cold morning it was. Yeah, it happens, but so does parents getting in trouble for it.

        Its truly sad isn’t it? I do quite abit of work in many communities in Suffolk and the thought process of many I deal with would truly blow your mind. Its very hard for me to keep my “thoughts” contained and not let them out. I often find myslef realizing that even though i’m helping these people in one way it will never really truly change their situation because they simply lack the “brains/common sense” to actually be productive in anything other than sitting outside their door everyday “hanging out”. The sad thing is these same people are reproducing and their children are becoming a product of them keeping the cycle constantly going around and around.

        Many want to blame “teachers” for not learning in school but I have seen first hand that its NOT the teachers it starts with the parents, then the child, and then back to the parents. If the parents don’t put education as an important fixture in these kids minds then it will NOT be important to them and a teacher can not teach someone who doesn’t want to learn.

        I can only hope that these kids wondering around in diapers will get better care from now on but I assume if it was allowed to happen even once it will happen again. I mean after all, how do two young children walk around that long in diapers and their parent not notice soon after they have left the house?
