A collection of mug shots.
Non-existent parenting skills.
Living with (and mooching off) her enabling parents.
Refusing to accept adult responsibilities.
Tragically misplaced priorities.
Blaming others for her own actions.
Expecting others to bear the brunt of her asinine behavior.
I wish I was describing only Casey Anthony. But unfortunately…and disturbingly…I know more than one so-called mother who matches this description perfectly. The media circus and gossip frenzy doesn’t distract from or gloss over the fact that yet again, a child has paid a sickening price for the cowardly turning of blind eyes to a mother’s gross inability, or monstrous refusal, to parent.
But we all know a mother simply wouldn’t harm her own child, eh? No matter how many times it happens right in front of us.
