Expectations of a 13 year old…

I just read about a 2-year old baby in Texas, who drowned in her community pool while the mother went inside to get a diaper. Supposedly, the mother left the 2-year old with a 13-year-old sibling and when she came back, the baby was lying on the bottom of the pool.

I can’t imagine the guilt that poor 13-year-old and the mother is going through.

Can a mom really rely on a child of that age in such a dangerous situation? Do you think the parents blame the sibling?

I certainly hope that this young teen gets counseling.
