According to a media report, a 25-year-old British woman was arrested by Majorca police for leaving her 7-year-old son alone in their hotel room while she had a night out.
Apparently, staff at the hotel discover the child crying following, report from the guests; they alerted police who was waiting for the child’s mother who turned up at breakfast time.
How stupid and idiotic can one be, why would a mother take her child on vacation only to leave him alone so that she can go out for the night. The climate we live in where children are so vulnerable why you would want to leave your son in such a vulnerable position?
What if the guest did not alert the hotel staff about the plight of this child, and he decided to leave the complex to search for his mother, the circumstances could have been very different. Given the fact that the child has informed the authority that this is not the first time that he has been left alone by his mother.
In my opinion, the police in Majorca should not turn that child over to the mother; he should be handed over to British Social Service. She should be, prosecuted for abandoning her child. I know what it is like to be a mother at 25, but when you choose to become a parent you accept certain responsibilities, and that does not involve leaving your child alone in a hotel room in another country.
I do not sympathise with this idiotic mother. There are ways to do things properly, and one method is making arrangement for your child safety before you go out galavanting. I am furious with this mother, how many times have she left her child alone? That cannot be a one off because, if you are that comfortable leaving you child alone in a hotel room, in another country, by himself, means when you are at home you do not think twice about doing the same thing. – disgraceful.
