I wouldn't sell my kids but I might rent them out for the day, for light yard work, etc.

What ever happened to personal responsibility? Is it always someone else's fault? Seems to me mom decided to have the child, mom decided to keep the child, mom decided to take drugs, mom decided not to seek help. I could go on but apparently it would matter. Maybe if we all pay another 10% in taxes it will solve the problem.

There is no price in the universe that would make me sell my child. No one has the right to sell another being, and that means human or animal. I do not agree with any of it.

Exactly, and that is the point I was trying to make. Our society has gotten VERY good at pawning the blame off on someone else. Some of the responses here are evidence of just that.

No, but I would sell my In-laws and my parents and my sister.

Would you sell your child?


back when dinosaurs roamed the earth... I was a terror. I bet my Mom thought about pawning me at least once.

Sometimes, I would farm mine out to the grandparents or neighbors for a night of peace and quiet. But, sell them?

Not a chance. I expect them to pay my bills someday

You cant blame the woman,noone wants to get hooked on drugs,it just happens sometimes,i often tell people if you try a drug once youve tried it a thousand times.People will go to extremes to satisfy their addiction,these means are usually wrong or unlawful but when you're jonesing nothing really matters except the next pill or the next hit..


Are you ******* serious?!!

Of COURSE we are to blame the crapstain of a mother! Forced at knife or gun point to get on whatever addiction she's on was she? When you become a parent, EVERYTHING you do from that point onwards should automatically be for the benefit of the child/children...everything, at least it should if you consider yourself a human being instead of pile of steaming ****. Indulging your own selfish wants and desires, taking addictive drugs to get out of your tree is NOT in the child's best interests or to their benefit, as if it needs saying!

Can't believe you wrote that she's not to blame. Forced to get on drugs and not go for help i suppose eh?

Let's blame her 5 year old son for having the gross misfortune to be borne to a scumbag waste of space, thing in human clothing. Yeah...it's all his fault, the cow of a mother is innocent.

Blimey.

Yes I am. I made mistakes in life that I could have done differently. I am to blame for having to send my child elsewhere. I will never deny that and neither should anyone else

why blame her only good came from this.The child will be given to a better family and the woman will be punished and helped to overcome her addiction.You shouldnt be so quick to blame the woman whom you know nothing about,like i said before,nooone wakes up one day saying ok today im gettin hooked,it kind of just happens sometimes,ESPECIALLY with rx drugs.A person who is high is not the same as one who is sober,its very unfortunate but both of them will only become better

Actually, as much as I preach about "personal responsibility" I have to say prescription drug abuse is often not the fault of the addict. It is very common, especially in Florida, for doctors to get their patients hooked on prescription drugs. I have seen patients take the prescribed dosage and still die. 7 people per day die in Florida alone on prescription drugs. They are worse than Heroin or Crack. A person can have a car wreck, or an injury at work, and they can see a bad doctor, and instead of getting treatment, they get painkillers, and they are able to work, but pretty soon, they can't work without the pain killers, and it takes more and more of the narcotics to have the same pain-relieving effect.

We have a serious problem down here, and it is often the fault of the doctors and the fault of the system, not the patients.

As far as selling the child, in my opinion, selling the child is no worse than giving the child up voluntarily. For my child, if I am living under a bridge, my kids will be right there with me! There is nothing that can drag my children from my care. There is no force on Earth that can drag my kids away from me, guaranteed! I wouldn't personally sell them, or give them up voluntarily, or try to find them a better home than mine. Just couldn't and wouldn't happen. We are a family, and if we go down, we go down together!

While I admire your logic, we must realize that "The System" is in place TO get people hooked. Even if the rest of our country doesn't agree with that, people NEED to have some sort of common sense. "Hmm, the doc prescribed 4 times the recommended dosage...maybe I should get a second opinion"? Seems pretty reasonable to me.
