It takes a moment of stupidity to have a child - it's as simple as that. It takes a lifetime of work and dedication and love to be a parent. Some people simply don't get that:
Mom accused of neglect after leaving girl on I-80
By the Lincoln Journal Star
A soccer mom, upset at her teenage daughter’s performance at a game Saturday, stopped along Interstate 80 and left her there.
Officer Katherine Finnell said the 42-year-old Lincoln woman was ticketed on suspicion of child neglect after the 2:30 p.m. incident.
She said the woman yelled at her 15-year-old in her car and asked her to repeat lines about improving her performance. When the girl messed up the lines, she slapped her. Finnell said the teen told her mom to pull over along I-80 near the downtown exit, so she did. That’s when the girl says her mom yelled at her to get out. She did and her mom drove away.
A teammate’s parent saw the girl and took her to their home, where they called police.
The Journal Star has elected not to run the mother’s or teenager’s names in an effort to protect the victim.
