    Oh I agree - poor, poor kid. Though frankly I am also amazed by how many grown-ups still get really bad sunburn....

    (Sarcasm alert) It is obviously very important to the story to know that the husband was "Speaking from his onebedroomed housing association flat in Plumstead" :lol:

    I really do feel sorry for her. I don't think she meant for that to happen. She learnt her lesson the hard way, and I think she has suffered enough. It does beg the question why didn't she use suntan lotion on him, but I believe that this was an accident and wasn't done on purpose. He obviously has parents that love him very much.

    And a massively increased chance of developing skin cancer in later life because of his loving mother too!

    i love how her oh says she only had one but he wasnt there? how does he know? he only has her word for it and considering shes grinning, has her nipple hanging out in that she had more then one!

    personally i dont see why anyone drinks around children when they are the sole career :(

    a 5mth old child cannot look after itself and she must have at least known this so why feel sorry for her?

    She had a beer which apparently "went to her head" but is she honestly trying to say she didnt notice her child was uncomfortable, cranky most likely upset and crying at times, never mind the blisters?? :scared:

    Remove the child ASAP, this isnt the kind of mistake you should be allowed to make again :mad:

    My mum did this to me but I was considrably older than that poor little mite. I was 10. I fell asleep on the beach. The doctor screamed at my mum for leaving me out in the sun like that and told her she should have been paying attention to her kids not farting about (lol love the way he put it). I've never been on holiday with my mum since and we don't get on very well at all. I haven't seen her since the 3rd January (my daughters birthday). They need to take some responsiblity!

    Also I think that article has a negative slant on it as well. Was there a need to mention he is on DSS? Just because someone is on benefits does not mean they are a bad parent.

    my ma is obsessive when it comes to looking after me and my siblings still!

    She has a massive fear of sharks and when we used to go walking the Clyde walkway or Strathclyde Park she insisted we did not go near the water "just incase there's anything in there" :lol:

    Your fiist instinct is to care for a child, this woman has NO excuse imo

    agreed, there is no need for that that's the Daily Mail for you, but the mother was still out of order, whether they are rolling in it or stony broke she is still very much in the wrong

    I never drink when I'm responsible for my daughter. Actually I only drink at Xmas but if I did go out drinking I'd make sure my husband was watching her.

    I agree that whether he is on benefits or not doesn't matter but she didn't even notice the blisters. That is very neglectful parenting imo.

    Yeah it is. Theres no excuse for it. Don't think it will change in 10 years either. My mother never did she's still a huge PITA!!! lol

    There is no excuse for bad parenting and if the social services let them keep that baby they are nuts.
