This family is getting way too much attention....Lets focus on the 10 year old boy in Florida who got set on fire by other 10-15 year old kids, and those kids might not even get in trouble for what they've done to him...Sad

And that is why they are slowly going to become famous we the people keep feeding their crap. Kind of like John and Kake plus 8.

The parents are pathetic. Disgraceful. Love how they were back-pedaling. Yes, they should foot the bill, and yes, they should serve jail time.

Way to go, Falcon!!! Never underestimate a six-year old. They will call you out on your shenanigans, whether they realize it or not.

Even if it wasn't a hoax, they should be investigated. It doesn't sound right to me that a kid could disappear for that amount of time and simply be hiding in a box in the attic. How would the parents have not found him up there...and why weren't they watching him a little closer?

I feel terrible for this child above and beyond anything else.. He is 6 years old. A very sad day if he was forced into doing this by his parents.

WTF is with all the fame-whore nowadays?! They should foot the bill for this little hoax of theirs. They should also get jail time.

I was watching the Today show this morning with them, and I was appalled at what this mom and dad are forcing their children to do on national TV for the sake of what? air time? 15 more minutes of fame? pity? Parents who use their children like this need to be prosecuted.

Poor kid, he was on the today show today and he ended up puking. I am glad they are now investigating this family.
