Being a parent involves accepting some risk. It's hard, but necessary.


They're lucky they weren't arrested. If they'd attacked the manager then they'd all deserve to face charges for assault. And if they'd seriously assaulted or killed the suspect then they also deserve to face charges. The manager did the right thing.
ok...

I cannot fathom how someone can be so daring and .... I dont know the word ..... but to go to a restaurant .... stalk a victim and snatch her from the female toilet and take her to the mens room (in which case anyone could have seen this happen) or someone wanting to come in. What was he going to do with the girl after he finished if he was not found out? Unbelievable.

Poor girl. I hope she was not injured to badly and heals. Emotional scars going to be with her for life though.

To be the bearer of some horrible news, if she was really raped by this man and she was an average sized 6 year old, she will probably require extensive surgery, and will probably never have a real or normal sex life ever again, aside from any of the emotional crap that this event brings with it... I know a little girl who was raped at a young age (might have been a bit younger than 6, but not much)... and it took nearly 3 years of extensive therapy before she would even speak again....

Call me a helicopter parent but my 5 year old doesn't leave my sight much less go to a public restroom alone.

I'm not blaming anyone apart from the sick fsck who did this but clearly people need to be more vigilant.
Yea, sad but true. If we can't sit right by the play area either the kids don't play or we chaperone them.

That is not helicopter parenting.

Helicopter parenting is when you would go to the child play area and tell your child how to play with the other children.

This story makes me mad.. ive got 2 1/2 yr old daughter and if I had to catch a man just touching her, he will lose his eyes and maybe his hands as well.

I hope he gets killed in prison... in a very painful way..

When do kids start going to the bathroom alone?

I have a niece, and something like this terrifies me. I almost want to share this with my brother but I'm worried it will just give him a panic attack.

Those are stupid people, I always sit where I can see my kids. My SO is especially paranoid wrt seeing the kids.
I never ever, under any circumstance, absolve myself of the responsibility of looking after my own child. The child minders in my opinion are an extra set of eyes, but mine or my SO's are the primary. My kids are never ever out of my sight.

And its a standard rule, no child goes to the bathroom alone - even if the SO takes our older boy, she stands outside the mens bathroom, within earshot - anything taking longer than 1 minute is met with a verbal confirmation - don't care what others think

Anyone want to make bets on how long it will be before he is convicted? My guess is three years.

Regardless, stand outside the bathroom and make sure you can hear them if anything goes wrong - providing you don't have a female to escort her.
