Mom Arrested After Allegedly Duct Taping Her Child to Chair and Leaving Him Home Alone

Sometimes I just have to shake my head at the news.

An Ohio woman has been arrested and charged after it was discovered that she had duct taped her son to a chair in the family basement and left him home alone.

The mom was found swimming at a local YMCA with her younger child while her older son was taped to the chair, with his mouth taped shut.

This story makes my heart hurt and the details are pretty sad.

She has written about it for some of the most popular websites in both Canada and the US including Entertainment Tonight Canada, I'm Not Obsessed and Babble. When she's not chauffeuring her 4 kids back and forth to the rink for various hockey and figure skating activities, she can be found glued to Netflix or reading a great book.
