    We use to learn child behavior and development at the knees of our mothers and grandmothers in the old days.

    Who's teaching these lessons nowadays?

    SPLUCKER = "Evil."

    Probably not.

    Just probably totally ignorant of the normal child behavior of an infant, expecting more than the child could provide at that young age - far more!!!

    Prayers for the child. Prayers it will never ever be back in the presence of either of these two alone again too.

    What people? I hope they find him and he gets the treatment he deserves if he is guilty of injuring his son. Article says police are looking for a "man" a man wouldn't do what he is accused of.

    If you don't like or want your child, there are plenty of good people who would be willing to take that child off your hands. There is absolutely no reason to harm a child.
