Child Abuse: Apples And Pears

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office has charged a 46-year-old woman with contributing to the deprivation of a minor for allowing her teenage daughter to live with a 29-year-old man.

I wouldn't normally bring your attention to this story, but what with having just posted the photo of the porky kid in McDonalds it brings the question to the fore, just what is child abuse.

It's an apples and pears comparison undoubtedly, but I can't help but feel that one momma is going to get nailed to a cross for letting her fifteen year old daughter (going on twenty five?) live with a bloke and all the other mommas who let their kids come into real harms way by letting their kids stuff themselves with junk until they look like the kid in the photo is construed as acceptable behaviour. more
