A special kind of mother heads to the sin bin

By Cameron 18 March 2008 47

ABC News is reporting that a 33-year-old mother of two has been sent to prison for two years for neglecting her children.

For those that won’t read the article – here’s the summary: Woman gets addicted to heroin and speed. Heroin and speed quickly become priorities over her children. She robs some 86yo woman in Phillip of $800 and buys drugs. Police find her in November last year in a car at Lanyon with her kids looking like rubbish wearing ancient and very used nappies.

Brilliant parenting that.

I also read on another post somewhere someone came up with a good idea of offering drug addicts money to have their tubes tied so they cannot bring unwanted children into the world

The civil liberties mob will love that….. (not)

Anyone have an update on Amber Westin?

I think that the government needs to re access the baby bonus, instead of handing it out in cash, perhaps they could hand it out in voucher form, for different stores, for baby clothes and prams too woollworths for food, petrol stations for petrol and so on.
It would make people stop and think about having a baby that is a lifelong commitment.

I also read on another post somewhere someone came up with a good idea of offering drug addicts money to have their tubes tied so they cannot bring unwanted children into the world, I think it’s a bloody good idea myself….

re: The Neighbour:

She moved away to go and raise her kids on a farm in Northern NSW somewhere, because she was quite mad.
Her husband had the patience of a saint and put up with her, I suspect mostly because he didn’t want the kids to go through knowing their mother was certifiable nor did he have the courage to smack her with a shovel and bury her under the roses.

Ask any Care and Protection worker in the ACT, if she had not assaulted the Granny, she would have had her kids removed and the ACT taxpayer would now be paying the bill for her thier out of home care while she gets to have regular contact with the kids

I wonder what happened to the 10-odd grand the taxpayer shelled out to her for squirting out those kids?

In actual fact the story specifically mentions that she was jailed for neglect, and that she ALSO pleaded guilty to the assault.
