Next to my husband, the people I trust most with my daughter are her grandmothers. Each one cares for her as if she were their own. I know they won't put her in precarious situations that would warrant child abuse charges. One 54–year–old Florida granny made headlines as she put her three–year–old granddaughter on the roof of her car and drove around a Publix parking lot. Claiming she would never hurt her child, the grandma said she drove at a snail's pace and held onto the child's leg!
If she were my mother, I'd have serious doubts about ever leaving my child with her again. But this has become a legal matter as she was charged with child abuse. It sounds like the granny was looking for a good time, but I can think of a thousand other ways to entertain a tot.
What would you do if your mother did this with your child?
