Silly naive me (about drugs) - but can someone tell me why meth would cause a mother to do something like this?
I can understand a meth addict doing many horrific things to pay for their habit, etc - but what reason is there behind cooking a child?
Does meth just make you freak?
If so, why continue using?
Is it an addiction that starts from the first *taste* (ingestion of the drug) - a substance that hooks you so badly the first time you can’t stop?
If so that is so flipping scary I can’t even imagine someone being tempted to *try* it...horrors...
Hopefully this woman will get the help she needs, while the children are kept safe and sound...
Reading the article I see Social Services had some contact with the family previously.
Thank God we didn't hear about this one too late!
Sounds like for once Social Services won - good on them.
