kien was playing with children at a neighbours house,wether he should have been in bed at that time is not for you to tell his parents how to look after him,,he comes from a loving home,with other siblings,,please no more remarks ,leave well alone.

c whoever you are in had the same with my son about a mth ago and although we watch are children like hawks unfortunatly we are only human and do not have eyes in r arses comments like this come from people who either 1 have no children or 2 are very very strict

Adele my daughters are 22 & 25, I also have a 1 yr old Grand daughter. I wasn't strict as you put it, I was & still am a caring, loving, intelligent mother who knew where her children were at all times & who they were with, especially when they were still in Primary school. If they got told not to leave some ones garden they didn't until I picked them up. If a little friend came to play with them I made sure I knew what time they had to be home & I took them or one of their parents picked them up.

playing out at 8.30pm for a 6 year old -- should have been in bed hours ago !!!!!!!!!!

Reply Posted by mark on Saturday July 14 2012 at 01:52
i agree totally with "c" a 6 year old should not be playing out unsupervised at anytime during the day never mind 8.30pm, and all you supporting the parents that allow their children to roam around the streets should be totally ashamed of yourselfs honestly.and giving them independance give me a break. at 6? why not give them a credit card and say here fend for yourself?ohhh because they are too young maybe?

the little one was in his garden some comments on here are making it sound like he was out roaming the streets causing bother does it matter what time it was or how old he is its his garden thats what its there for.

Reply Posted by christine on Saturday July 14 2012 at 20:45
He was in a friends garden.

Reply Posted by Mick on Sunday July 15 2012 at 08:26
As you said Linzi, he was at a FRIENDS HOUSE...Why was he there when YOU should have been looking after him at that time. If not in bed he should have at least been ready for bed & playing in a secure garden. YOU ARE irresponsible in the fact that You weren't looking after him & presumed some one else was. Not good. He's not a dog that you can let out of the gate & presume he will come back when hungry, he's a child & the world is new to him. Life isn't the same as when you were growing up, it's dangerous out there. Please watch your precious children before some one else does!

The most important part of this story is that the boy was found safe. I really don't think it's up to anyone to criticise - especially as we don't know the full circumstances. It's very unfair and only serves to upset a family who have already been through a traumatic time. I'm sure if you'd gone through this, you wouldn't appreciate so much criticism. It's very easy to slate people - but just put yourself in their shoes - what would you do if the situation is reversed? At the end of the day a boy was missing and, thank heavens, has been found safe. That should be the primary concern here and not how people choose to bring up their children.

thankyou nicky,,,,,,,well said,maybe this will be no more.thankyou again.

Great news that the little one was found safe :D
Think we need something in place in this country, like the US Amber Warning system. :) Would help find missing people faster :)
