The story of the fater putting his daughter in the dryer is sick, horrible, discusting, and inhumane!! Poor girl, as if she doesnt have enough to deal with, she has this person who is supposed to love, cherish, and guide her through life, punishing her by putting her in the dryer. I am shaking my head now thinking who in their right mind would do that!! I hope the fater doesn’t only serve time, but understands why this is unexcusable. I wish nothing but the best for this little girl!

That survey is hilarious. But in the parents’ defense, they asked a sample of parents of kids between 9 and 17 so it’s understandable that a lot of them would (rightly, hopefully) think their children are not drinking, doing drugs or having sex. If the children were 15-17 it would be different.

The story about the dryer is horrible, but sadly the same thing occurred in the city I live in. A mother put her 3-month-old in the dryer and turned it on. The baby died and the mom is still awating trial. It is scary to think what some parents can do to their children. It seems like people should need a test to see if they are suitable to become parents before they have children.

My now-29-year-old daughter loved to help me take warm clothes & towels out of the dryer when she was a toddler, and I remember being so worried she would accidentally climb in there, I put a child lock on the door! That a man would do this to his daughter is sick and vicious. I can’t imagine how anyone could mount a defense for him.
