I can’t believe that in this era of helicopter parenting, we’re still letting teenagers babysit our kids. And THIS is why.
The cops in Ulster County, New York got a call last Thursday afternoon about a young kid dragging a suitcase down the street.
When they got there, they found the 10-year-old with the suitcase, along with the kid’s 16-year-old babysitter.
And they figured out what happened: The babysitter had used the kid he was watching to help him break into a house.
The babysitter was charged with four felonies, including burglary, grand larceny, and criminal mischief. He was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
The 10-year-old wasn’t charged.
