The Blame Game

When are parents going to accept some of the blame?  Read the story below.  As I was reading this I started to go back to my main thought "This is why I would NEVER put my kids on a bus" even if we were insane enough to send them to school.  The flippin' bus driver left the 3 year old on the bus.  Seriously.  That is C3. If she were left on a bus, I would call the cops and tell them to meet me there and be ready to arrest me.  I would have beaten that 53 year old woman into a pile of ashes. But then you know what happened to my thought process....?????

I read the rest of the you read it and then tell me what you think.  Cause I am about to let loose.  See you after the story....

Toddler left on freezing bus for three hours

A school bus driver in New York state has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a 3-year-old enrolled in the Head Start program was left alone on her bus, strapped into a car seat for three hours, WHEC-TV reports.

Kenny Wagar was dismissed from school early Friday and was supposed to be dropped off at an after-school program at a church. Instead, Penn Yan police say bus driver Janet Lane, 53, left him on the bus.

The boy's mother, Karen Wagar, says Kenny had no hat and no gloves and temperatures were below freezing that day. Wagar says her son yelled to the bus driver, but she apparently didn't hear him.

Ok. I want to know if the mother sent the 3 yr old to school with the proper attire?  It doesn't say that.  It says her son had NO hat and gloves.  Where in the *$%& are the kids hat and gloves.  Come on mom!  Cant you tie the kids stuff to his jacket?  Something, anything.  If you did send the kid to school with that stuff, then we need to blame the teachers or someone at the school.  Putting a 3 yr old on a bus with no hat and no gloves in freezing temps.  But I see only blame going to the bus driver. 

Why do more parents not "Own their S*&%"?  Why do more school officials "Own their S&^$"?  It is because everyone is scared to death that they are going to lose their child, job, income, source of living. 

Parents do a better job and parent like you mean it.  Your kids plays video games. Fine. Just don't let them play ALL DAY LONG.  Your kid watches things above their age level. Fine. Explain it to them.  Your kid have school work.  Do it with them or check it after them.  Look I am a working daddy.  I am the last person to preach about how parents should deal with kids, I have my own issues about maturing as a parent, but there are some things that should just come natural.  We as parents like to blame others. Maybe it is easier that way. Maybe so we don't feel as bad for the mistake we made.  But the quicker we own up to our own faults the faster we as parents will be better parents.  This also trickles down to the kids.  If we blame others aren't the kids going to pick up on that and do that in their own trials?

Just a thought.  What do you think and how do you feel?  Wanna argue, or talk.  Leave some comments and or tweets and lets get to it.

Seriously....No Gloves or Hat? What type of parent sends their child outside in freezing temps without gear? Now granted I don't have kids but I would like to think that it would be common sense for a parent to equip their child for the weather outside? Yes the bus driver should ALWAYS make sure all the kids are off the bus but still the parent needs to assume some responsibility. What was this kid going to do when they got off the bus?

Sounds like the parent needed some reprimanding as well as the bus driver. No hat...What in the world?!?! And 3 years old?! We still bundle up our 9 year old like a snow bunny when its cold...HA! And what parent puts a 3 yr old on the bus?! Is your schedule REALLY that hectic that you can't spend 15 minutes to drop off/pick up your preschool age child?! They are only little once and they can ride the bus to school for 12 more years anyway!! And yes, where would this child have been if they HAD been dropped off....unsupervised!? Oh I could go on and on....RIDICULOUS is what it is!!!

I think the mom and the school bus driver need to be left on a bus with no hats/gloves in freezing temps for a few hours. Wtf is with some people?!

Great post. Parents, and people in general, really need to stop blaming others and owning up to their mistakes/shortcomings. It's never easy to admit to a mistake, especially with your child/children, but suck it up and do it anyway.

Damn! man that is messed up. That would be totally traumatic. Have you checked out Kanye's new album - hes got a song called the blame game.

That's absolutely horrid. There's always a niche of parents and adults, whether it is large or small, that just don't think, or don't take responsibility for their actions.

Its pathetic. Man this urckes me!
