I raised 6 boys and it was a never ending battle of them getting into things and me tring to keep them safe .

You indeed speak the truth. I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters; grew up in the country. My mother says every time she looks on the face of her children she is looking at the face of a miracle, because she didn't think any of us would make it to adulthood.

The crap we dreamed up, and the mischief we devised on a daily basis, even has me wondering how we didn't kill our fool selves along the way.

You had a proper childhood, as did I. We were allowed to live. We were free.

When I was around 8 my mother told me I could do whatever I wanted as long as I was home by supper, and after supper by dark. She didn't care that I tried tobacco and alcohol. I was offered drugs, but declined.

My freedom to choose made all the difference. I've never done illegal drugs or abused those that are legal. I didn't pay attention to boys until I was in college.

Kids these days haven't been raised responsibly. You can't offer them that kind of freedom anymore. They're not disciplined enough to choose wisely.

As for leaving the kids play alone in there room all parents do this from time to time .


Thank you for the reality check. As said, "They don't come with Instruction manuals."

I thought I baby proofed the room. Did not know at the time my little bundle was ADD. Crawled out of her crib at 6 months. So took wheels off and lowered side. Oops! Forgot to lower side against the wall. She crawled under crib hitting the mechanism with her .. Still has a scar above eye.

She did so many more things I never would've thought of.


Well they come with common sense instructions. Number 1 rule with kids under 2 you dont leave them alone.

I have raised 2 and have a 20 month old grandson and if he is not in his playpen then there is an adult following him all around the house at all times.

This is bad parenting.

Right. You're the perfect parent.

Playpen? You had a kid that stayed in it?

Lucky you.

I have one toddler who can't be left for 1 second. He is a little devil. He hardly walks, but mounts garniture in the house.

I was thinking to get a nanny cam or some spy camera to film my toddler when I m not watching. I checked this site: www.spygismo.com...

But these cameras look pretty cheap and I m not sure if the quality of the video would be so good like in the OP video.

And if they do have this nanny cam then they must have filmed they toddlers doing some nasty things before this accident, so they know what they were capable of doing but still they left them alone.

To me, it looks like it was on purpose to film a viral YouTube video. Can anyone confirm if this video is staged?

Lucky me?

If you cant watch your own kids then dont have them. And a dresser has never fallen on any kid in a playpen.

I am far from perfect but at least we watched our kids.

That kid was even trying t o et these idiot parents attention with the baby monitor.. So they had cameras and a monitor and still the 2 year old had to rescue his brother.

That's the kind of kid I had. She was ADD, but we didn't know it yet.

And I was a young first time mom that had not been around young kids/babies.

My friend had a son same age who sat and played. He'd take one toy out of the toy box, play with it, then put it back and get another. My daughter would take every single toy out of the box, then leave the room to find something else to do.

Kids are different.

We lived in a small 2 bedroom house. She was never far from me. I had a tall old heavy dresser in her room. On top was a kids lamp with shade. Somehow she got up there, pulled the shade off the lamp and put a towel over the naked bulb. It caught on fire. She wasn't yet 2.

We eventually had to turn her bedroom into a "padded cell", with a Dutch door (so I could check on her) just so I could get something done.

Imagine if she was a twin.

And when did her behaviour get better?

because my kid lifts box full of toys and turn it upside down so all toys are all over the floor and then he goes and punch TV.

I dont believe in ADHD, i know when i was kid i was also little devil.

Not sure if this cameras can help me, because as we see in OP video there is camera and kids are still doing naughty things.

Who the hell leaves toddlers unsupervised?


In the real world people do. The point is how many people leave their children unsupervised for prolonged periods and are negligent.

Even the most dedicated parent has to have a pee, or put the kettle on. Oh, except you?

You don't believe in ADHD. How convenient.

My kid had zero attention span on a "one on one". On a "one on one" the teacher had to also physically squeeze her hands to keep her focused.

"Elastic Brain". Early intervention can train the brain. The brain learns and retains.

I am thankful to her school and teachers. I was ignorant. They weren't.

These psych labels all replace the real problem - lack of proper discipline of the child by the parents.

Kids in my day had short attention spans and were bursting with energy. Their parents instilled self-control and they were fine, and GD disciplined in nature.

It can be done, but parents today are bloody wimps.

Oh look. Another beat the child into submission person.

A child can't even hold focus on a "one on one", but they'll understand a whipping.

Why does proper discipline have to mean beat into submission?

Talk about overreacting

Oh, I was just labeling.

Tell me how you're gonna stop an ADD kid from bouncing off the walls with "proper" discipline.

Is that grandkid normal in the first place? What kid doesn't try to master climbing out of a playpen?! I've got a 9 and 7 year old, guess what both mastered upon being able to walk? Mastered getting out of the crib & playpen.

Your smugness regarding kids just shows you haven't been hit with holier-than-thou karma yet. Keep waiting for it, it's coming. Kids will see to that.

Lol these kids under 2. 7 year olds you can leave alone for a bit.

2 year olds you can not leave alone without at least a crib or playpen for more than 10 seconds.

And my God even when there in the playpen you have to go check on them. They are babies.

How do you not at least hear on the monitor the dresser crashing over or see it on the camera.

These are idiot parents period

Mine should be dead 10 times over by your helicopter rules. We left them in their room to play a lot. For longer than 10 seconds, OMFG! TEH HORRORZ! How did they survive the nights sleeping without me diligently watching, totally eyes-on their whole sleep cycle, to make sure they didn't roll over on their stomachs & smother themselves, either??

That dresser looked mostly empty by the time they were done with it, and rather lightweight by design. We also don't know the size of the house, layout, nor construction materials used. I can think of a few ways someone could not hear that topple.

I partly grew up on a farm, the stuff I did at these kids' age, you'd be horrified. I was a good climber, still am. That ol' windmill of ours was my favorite thing to scale, evidently.

Bubble wrapped is not a way to learn how to exist.
