You don't have to be a perfect parent to understand that allowing three-year-olds to play outdoors without watching them or at least designating an older child to do comes with inherent risks. Many imperfect parents would't have waited an hour to call LE after the kid disappeared, either. Kind of like how you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know that the natural world and cartoons are two very different things.

It takes far less time and effort to make a simple statement that the family would appreciate being given their privacy than it does to set up and manage Go Fund Me pages and Post Office boxes. The grandmother even posted the Post Office box # on her Go Fund Me page. How thoughtful of her.

I laughed when I got to the PO Box portion of their Go Fund Me page. Like really?

"We didn't want to set this up... We were basically forced into it... OH! And here is where you can send us packages!"

I wonder how many teddy bears will be sent to the PO box... I'm gonna need an update on how many bears this child owns a month from now.

You know, I may have done a lot of dumb things while raising my kids (and I'll admit I make mistakes), but letting them wander off into the woods bc they are playing unsupervised...no.

I was out on my tricycle every day in the driveway and just this one day decided to wander off. It happens.
If you decided to venture off the driveway and down the block on your tricycle, and your brother had to go find you, obviously your mother wasn't watching you

I always grabbed my gun and dog before I wandered off - forget the tricycle. That way my parents knew where I was located; safe in the deep woods with the bear!
