My mom told me yesterday that she heard on the news about a 1 year old boy who died while he was ALONE. His parents were eating downstairs and the boy, who was just learning to walk, climbed upstairs. His parents hear a loud THUD and when they got upstairs their t.v. had fallen on their son. This was hard for me to hear because I have a 2mnth old girl and she will be learning to walk pretty soon. I dont understand, when are parents going to understand that they cant leave their babies alone? So many accidents have happened over time that you would think parents would get the point! So if you are a parent PLEASE DONT LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN ALONE!!!!!

yes you are right. i have a 4 y.o kid and i never leave him alone. i always see to it that i watch her and that she can hear me. parents should be responsible. but we also have to bear in mind that what happened was not expected and it was an accident. i know every parent wants the best for their child

Stories like that are always hard to hear. I've heard of tv's & entertainment centers & book shelves falling on kids. There was on incident a couple yrs back where the boyfriend left a 3yo alone in an apartment while he went to pick up the mom. Well the lil boy somehow tried to climb on or in the stove and was somehow able to pull it down & it crushed him. The boyfriend thought the boy was asleep. You still should not leave the house even if they are asleep but this man did anyway instead of waking the child.
