Ohio residents are opening their hearts and wallets to help a 7-year-old Ohio boy who tried to sell his teddy bear for food.

A Franklin police officer encountered the boy and his teddy bear outside a CVS store on Sunday afternoon, according to WLWT News.

“It broke my heart. He told me that he was trying to sell his stuffed animal to get money for food because he hadn't eaten in several days,” Franklin Officer Steve Dunham told WLWT.

Dunham took the boy to a local Subway restaurant and bought him dinner.

He and the little boy “said a little prayer and ate dinner together," he told the TV station.

2 police officers accompanied the boy back to his home. The officers were shocked at the squalid living conditions the boy shared with his parents and 3 siblings.

The children's parents, Tammy and Michael Bethel, face charges of child endangerment.

But Tammy insists her children do not go hungry, and she said they are not living in squalor. In a reply to a Franklin Police Dept. Facebook post, she said she just didn't have time to clean up after the kids.

Her four children, Caleb, Joseph, Sylvia and Luke don't want for anything, she claims.

"I just spent $2,000 on clothes, school supplies and shoes," she wrote.

But Facebook users are outraged.

One Facebook user wrote, “You're trying to defend the indefensible. Just pick yourself up, own it, and be a better parent. Nobody hates you. But you need to do better.”

  • askquestions

    Interesting. Wheres the black father?

  • RespectSelf

    sooo are there more pictures? or what? Do the parents have jobs or what? I'm trying to understand that how these kids are living in a two parent household and not geting fed. Being dirty is one thing... not feeding your kids is another.

  • SoChlo

    Hold up. My child isn't school aged yet but back to school stuff costs $500 per kid??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Bless his heart. He didn't want to be a member of the Dust Eater Anonymous like Draya's son was at one point. Glad he had enough know-how to go seek help.

  • IntroSpective

    Not to be rude, but my initial thought when seeing the boy in question is that he may have other things going on that we're not privy too. Many ppl have nasty houses. It's not right but not a crime in some cases. Idk if I'll go as far to say I feel bad for the parents, bc they should've know he wandered off. Its a messed up situation.

  • RespectSelf

    yes, it's costly. You figure clothes, shoes, and supplies will get you up there

  • IntroSpective

    Right...my thoughts exactly

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Dear Tamara - Why are you responding. Please deactivate your social media and why are you buying $2000k supplies and clothes for kids at that age. They be outgrown, lost and trashed half that stuff by October..

    We don't even do this

    Either you lying are you and kids are con artists.

    God Bless those they really don't since she doesn't. JEEZ

  • SoChlo

    ? I thought once I was done paying daycare I could breathe. Lord I don't see how people can afford more than a couple of kids.

  • RespectSelf

    I'm saying do we know for sure, for sure that life is really so tough for the kids just because mom keeps a dirty/messy house? Do we know that the boy really hadn't ate for several day or if he was trying to sell a teddy bear for something that his people's say he could get?

  • IntroSpective

    Exactly! There could be truths on both sides.

  • RespectSelf

    well stuff is expensive!!! I can see it. especially if they don't wear uniforms. YOU CAN FIND cheaper stuff, yes. But you could easily spend $500 on one child. It's not hard. I just spend $200 on some clothes for a 5 year old and I'm not done. The bigger they get, the more it cost.

    Episode of I wanna say Cops. Was on this weekend. They responded to a domestic abuse call. They get there. Take statements. While looking around, a damn kitchen is closed off by CURTAINS. Low and behold. The damn kitchen is an episode BY itself of Hoarders. Hoe immediately starts crine and hollering Imma clean it up. Imma clean it up RIGHT NOW

    What this made me think of.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I saw one where it was so bad they said we coming back in a few days, if it's not clean we taking your kids. Came back it was clean.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Yes, I spent 500$ alone in clothes for my 10 year old to start school this year; she simply doesn't fit any of her winter clothes from last year... NONE. We took her old clothes to the hood and gave them to a 8 year old in need. Her school supplies were easily $130 because the list they give in her school district has items on there the teachers usually have to pay out of pocket for. This is not including the $1200 "donation" they ask for every elementary school kid in our district and if you don't pay it by June 1st of that school year (end of year) you are kind of blacklisted as a family.. but, again it's a "donation". We pay $600 and have my husband's job match. Northern California suburb little district... if it wasn't the best in our area I would say "F" them all together but, my child thrives so, here I am... working so she can have better than I did just like I had better than my parents.

    Add before and after school care to that bill during the year because both of us work full time and I don't want her home idle or getting a ride from the neighbors. .. another $300 mo bill.

    She does have the right to be concerned that her children will be teased because of the situation...I dont think the media needed to show the childrens faces...they can recieve support without that negative exposure...disgracing their parents is another story

    Wow!! So moral of the story is kids never got out of your pocket? That's a lot of money but like you said we all want to give the best for our kids. You just took the wind out my little sails?

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    You could, but I never would. I ain't bragging, but I got it and WOULD NEVER on 3 or 4 kids. wear there underwear and socks from last year.

    What the cost of their shoes, every heard of sales. NOPE NOPE NOPE

    Kids loose things. Not even for private school do they recommend buying things for the entire year. I have three teens, and as a sibling of four, my mama would been like you gonna get xyz now and then we would go shopping every couple of months. I don't believe this laddeeeeee.

    SCNOPE

  • ebonics

    Right! I was thinking id hate to see their bathroom! yuck!

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    matter of fact if she produces the receipt of the $2000, I will buy all four kids a pair of shoes. Yes I would.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Swear to Jesus that is how it went down Harley. She was crying begging to clean up that kitchen. She had those kids taken away previously for having a nasty house is what dude said. I was all...well maybe I dont need to clean up for a long LONG time, and maybe they will come for Dub11. He pinched me for saying that. *snorts*

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    May have. It's probably so many nasty ones.

  • hottlanta

    Why the dad gotta be black? I ain't saying that all kids by black men have thick hair or they should be brown. But those kids look they are a mixture of Asian and Mexicans. One of those kids should be dark with thick hair out of the 4. Black genes should be dominate somewhere.

    The school districts get it but, I'm sure it's not distributed properly once it gets there. We also live in a suburban area. Golf course, retired people and a major college in our town up a mountain so, we don't get nearly as much as the Oakland school district down the hill and through the tunnel. They also expect more from the parents in our district. the schools and classrooms have shitt you wouldn't believe in them. Most parents where I live don't have to work as hard as my husband and I do for our kids. Most of the moms are stay at home country club moms spending their husband's money and the husbands sleeping with whoever on their "business trips"... it's pretty suburban rich stereotypical. We don't live on the country club; we live modestly within what we can afford but, it's all for her. Once she is out of that school district, we are probably moving back to Texas with our youngest child or to a different area in California because my husband loves his damn job but, we are not vested in that damn neighborhood. Neither of us grew up socially like our surroundings. I'm a nigga no matter where I live; I don't forget that.

    The one I watched cops pull over dude, he has a big ziplock bag full of weed, says it's for his own personal use, bought it for $800. Cop wants to charge him with intent to sell but they find bottles of clean pee in his truck and decide he's telling the truth, it's just for his use. They arrest him for something else, let his gf come get his truck. Lucky to be White.

    she said she just didn’t have time to clean up after the kids.

    Yes but if it was that bad, I'm mad she didn't stay on their ass to make sure it got clean. You just don't live in filth cause you can't discipline your children to clean up.

    Parents like this make me sick. She know good and well that house been looking like that for awhile. It's a shame that the people who can reproduce just take their kids for grant. Hell if you don't won't them give them up to somebody who can provide and give them a better upbringing. It's plenty of loving couples in relationships or marriages who can't have any who would be willing to take in these kids as their own in an heartbeat. I think this woman is just trying to gain sympathy and make herself look better after all the backlash she has faced on social media.

    Yesterday I spent 32 on 2 pair of missimo jeans. I'mm buy two more from some where else and I bout 5 tops from NY&CO when they were 5.00

    Office deport be having paper for 90 cent a pack. notebooks and pencils be mad cheap, hail I order that right from my computer and have it shipped to house for free

    You can get shoes from NIKE outlet for less that 40.00 It's hard for me to spend more than 150 per child.

    Bargain shopping is MY thing.

  • Tinika

    I dont have children but I do know that caring for them can be expensive. What I don't understand is why parents are spending over 200 dollars for shoes? I believe a child can still look quite spiffy without spending that kind of money, especially being that children grow quickly. I would try to get the best bang for my buck. There are stores that sell children clothes and shoes that are nice but not that expensive.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This right here is why I dislike so many teachers. You never know what a child is going through at home and then they go to school and have to put up with bs from teachers. Back when I had FB, I had a couple of friends that were teachers and they would bytch and moan about how kids don't come to school prepared with pens and paper but have on Jordans. Smdh. When in actuality most of the kids never even tried on a pair of Jordans let alone owned a pair.

  • Soda

    No. Way. If I paid 300x3 for kids' shoes they better also be drones that fly them to and from school.

  • Sucker Free

    What? 300 per pair? U lost me

  • Dakota H

    I agree with you I was totally thinking the same thing like how @ askquestions know if the dad is black. My step nephew is half black but he looks Mexican most people don't know he has black ancestry. But I agree with @ tinika that the father race should not be a questioned the main thing is why the house a mess, have the kids been fed, and why they didn't know that one of their kids was missing from the home.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Agree. I don't spend $200 on shoes but, I do buy clothes for the entire winter as winter is a full season and then some here. I also don't just buy for the first few months of school.. I buy for the whole damn year. I don't do that four pairs of pants and five shirts to start school like I had growing up... I use to be so annoyed with my dad when he called that back to school shopping. And I don't wanna hear maybe my dad couldn't afford it because he could. He was a single father but, he afforded what he wanted to.

  • Tinika

    Right!! Thats crazy to me. My mother was quick to tell me that I needed to get a job when I started asking for Parasuco and Sergio Valenti jeans lol. I would never spend that much money on a childs shoes. They grown fast as hell. Its like throwing your money down the drain.

  • Tinika

    Lol yeah my mom was pretty much the same. I understood her line of thinking more once I had to buy my OWN ish lol.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Tammy I'm going to call BS.

    1. Where tf were you when your child was standing outside trying to sell a one eyed teddy bear for food. And where were you during the additional 45 min to an hr that he was missing (technically) because he was out having lunch with a police officer.

    2. The cops obviously saw something in your house that made them determine that donations were needed.

    3. What McDonald's? So not only did he buy your son Subway, he also bought McDonalds to the house? But you want me to believe everything is all good over there.

    I don't begrudge anyone that has fallen on hard times. But for the grace of God...
    But I know chicks like you...the ones that get on social media talking about how much you do for your kids but in actuality will sell your kids clothes voucher so you can bail your "man" out of jail. Better not piss those cops off...they're spiteful by nature. F around and they'll take those dam kids.

    Oh and yes I do. Most real men have to nowadays considering just how trife most females are today. Just lazy and resistant to anything that just may lend itself to being a virtuous woman.

  • Critical_Thinking

    Agreed.

    I need to see proof of receipts and here from the children and father, before I jump down this mothers throat. It can be rough raising children, especially if you do not have any support. I will say that she should make sure to keep the house cleaned and sanitized but working in the multi-family housing field, I have seen it all and can understand why certain situations are the way they are. For some reason I am getting the vibe that the police officer is playing hero and his department took this story to the media to make themselves look good and the police field as a whole with the current backlash of officers at the moment. I believe in providing facts and evidence before making a decision.

  • nucynu25

    You sound alil hurt....this ho is not an example of most women.

  • Critical_Thinking

    Agreed.

    I believe in listening to both sides and would like to hear from the father, and all of the children before jumping down this mothers throat. I am shocked at the amount of women that are jumping down this mothers throat and taking the officers side, but when a black man is being killed they like to holler out the officer is lying or they are not telling the full story. -_-

  • nucynu25

    I understand your point but even her response to the post shows her character. Ppl trying to help your nasty ass but you have an attitude. Someone does something kind for your child and instead of thanks but we don't really need that , the bish response is he aint even eat that ish. So yeah by that alone the bish is probably trash.

  • MistaO

    Oh please and quit with the "you sound hurt" snaps. Yall stay using the same ole worn playbook. Most females today couldn't hold a tea candle to yalls great grandmas. Those were serious women!

  • Critical_Thinking

    What about the part where she states the "Officer Meyer promised me this info would not be released." I can understand her being embarrassed and felt betrayed IF he really said that, but I want to hear from the father and the other children before I cast judgement. I will agree that she does seem ungrateful about him offering the child food and the story is conflicting with one saying "Subway," and the other "McDonald." Which one is it?

    lmao...So hve you met evey woman? Whats the percentages? What's the facts? Our grandparents were great women but guess what times hve changed. Our grandmothers had one role and that was to take care of home . The women of my generation taking care home & the bills. Blk women are the fastest growing entrepreneurs and the most educated. So excuse us if we don't hve the time to cook you a meal every single night. You sound like a chauvinistic person. A womans sole role is not just to fuk you & feed you . A relationship is a partnership. And while we there a lot of yall mfs be wanting the milk but don't want buy the cow.

Get your lazy, "I want my girl to perform wifely duties, but not be my wife" azz off the couch and get your own damn water.

  • Liz

    None of her kids are babies. They are all old enough to have chores and pick up after themselves. The fact that the house is in disarray like that and they are all at least 8 means she has been nasty for a long time. If she was picking up and cleaning consistently, they would have started to learn to do the same. The fact that she allowed a picture like that of her fridge to be posted further proves that point. She should be shame but she doesn't even realize the depths of her nastiness.

  • the guest

    This had no business on social media!

    The parents are neglectful AND the officers are playing hero for public accolade. The officers exploited this family's poverty and that's not right.

    I would have purchased some groceries, called church volunteers to help her and the children clean up, and then requested donations without disclosing the family's name.

    The mother is hurt and embarrassed. Poverty is stigmatized and judged. There's a way to talk to and help people in need.

    She knows her house is filthy. She knows her kids are hungry. She knows she didn't spend $2000 on school clothes. She knows she needs help. She is also right that the officers could have helped her and her children without blasting them on social media.

  • Mrs. (Asexual) Elmo

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    If she is receiving public assistance, I bet she has $2,000 to spend. She looks like she is dating a dude who sells meth. That would be another way for her to get $2,000. Her children are beautiful. They look neat and clean. The issue is they're hungry and their home is filthy. If she had $2,000 to spend on school clothes. She had $150 to spend on a housekeeper to clean their home, and money for groceries.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    But Officer Tim Norman lives on social media and is applauded for exploiting Black children. I'm all for helping people in need, but I'm not for helping people in need and blasting in on social media, so in that regard, I totally agree with you. There's no need to make people feel < because they need help.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Lol. I was about to ask where your children were getting shoes from, Neiman Marcus? Saks Fifth Avenue? Barneys? But with what you paid, they could get sneakers from the aforementioned stores. You the real MVP. ?

    My mom used to spend a grip on my school clothes, shoes and supplies. And my hair was always freshly done for school. Also, once I reached a certain age, nails were done, too. That's why when she offered me the opportunity to have my first job, I took it. It paid for my school clothes and other incidentals. If your kids don't appreciate all you do for them (because they don't realize how much you're doing), they will.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

  • Allihave2say

    Here's the deal. There is uncooked food in the fridge that she allowed to spoil instead of cooking. Not only that the running mold in the refrigerator says she has stored fresh food in there in months. There's no way she could. How in the hell did she get donations and not a case with her children removed from her care for neglect?

    See the nice charge they got? One charge for endangerment instead of five charges of neglect!

  • Allihave2say

    Wait, i missed something! Did this trick say since her and her husband's names have been released the children are afraid of being bullied at school? This trick loves to deflect and doesn't take responsibility for her actions.

    So it isn't because she and her husband didn't know their son had left home? Or because he was a Target alone? Or because he said he hadn't eaten in days? Or because he was trying to sell his toy to get money to buy food to eat? It's because her name was released? I am thoroughly pissed off with this trickster <-- trying to keep it as clean as I can.

  • the guest

    Well, shame on officer Tim Norman for exploiting black children. He wants a medal for buying a hungry child some McDonalds or Subway? Really? The mother and her kids needed a hand up not exploitation. If that child tried to sell me a toy for food I would have never told the media. These kids are going to have a tough time going back to school because kids are evil these days.

    Dammit Zoe. I will throw one of those rancid hotdogs from that fridge at you.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Re: "...kids are evil..." The kids aren't the problem. The adults are the issue. They know the kids' parents are having problems. Rather than buy a 2nd backpack for a child in need or donate their child's gently used clothes or new clothes their child outgrew, parents would rather talk isht about other parents who are having hardships. I'm sure it's expensive raising one child, more or less multiple children. How expensive is it to place an extra sandwich in your child's lunch box for their hungry friend every now and then?

    I receive a lot of freebies from grocery stores, coffee shops, etc. They're often more than I want or need. That's why, if/when I see someone who I think may be interested, I will offer them the items. At one point, I won contests online that yielded me 17 or so free candy bars/packages of candy. I just collected them, kept some and gave the rest away. It's not difficult, and you don't lose anything behind it. But when giving, whether big or small, people should give with discretion. Don't embarrass people in the process.

    This is typical "hood" behavior. I grew up in the pj's and while my siblings and I did not have brand new clothes and shoes at the beginning of the school year, we always had a clean house and home cooked meals...the best dressed kids seemed to always find their way to our house to eat. Sadly, those same kids grew up with that same mentality...you see it in the "first day" of school pics this week; kids wearing polo and Jordans posing in front of the same pj's their parents and I grew up in.

    Amen to that.

    And of course I agree the kids aren't the problem. When I said kids are evil these days I meant that the other kids will tease them horribly for this exploitation. School may be unbearable at first.

  • the guest

    I don't think she is ungrateful about the McDonalds and Subway offered. I think she is embarrassed and ashamed her kids were hungry.

    Not even a peanut butter sandwich or cheese sandwich at home? No family? No friends? No Neighbors? No local church? A big pot of rice and beans cost $3. This makes no sense.

    Something is wrong if the kids hadn't eaten in days. Something bigger than a McDonalds meal can fix.

    Hopefully pride and public shame won't keep her from getting the help she needs and her children deserve.

  • the guest

    It did happen but the officer shouldn't have put it on FB. I'm still trying to comprehend kids not eating for days.

    I mean oatmeal and toast is eating. A buttered roll and tea is breakfast to a lot of people including college students and working people. People may not eat what they want but they eat. Not eating for days is something very serious.

    It will be so sad if the child had eaten something but wanted fast food and figured out a way to get it. Have doctor's exams confirmed these children deprived of food and nutrition?

    This family's neglected and dirty house is due to hopelessness. The mother is bitterly defensive because she knows better. Either the parents are on drugs or they're depressed.

    Addiction and depression can be treated, and thankfully the children appear to be loved and there's no physical abuse.

    Well considering the obvious, your wife surely falls in the category. Since you consider yourself to be a good man that keeps house, it's safe to say you married one of the lazy women you speak of. I'm not surprised. Most black men these days always go after what they claim they don't want.

What do you mean you didn't want your name released?......If you depend on the public, the public as a right to know who you are....

    This trollop actually has FIVE children,not 4,and the 17 yo is on Probation. Mom said-But mother Tammi insisted nothing was amiss, writing on Facebook that her kids created a mess, but were well clothed with 'fresh kicks'.
    She wrote yesterday: 'All the kids are in the house. And my kids have went to Franklin long enough that we all know people.
    'They are not babies. The cops had to force them to take [the food] saying don't waste it. And my son has always had fresh kicks!
    'As a matter of fact I bought all of them Steph Currys at the beginning of summer. Wth is wrong with being barefoot in the summer time? I know tons of ppl that go barefoot and it hasn't killed them yet.'
    She also wrote that she intended to file a lawsuit because an officer told her 'none of this would go public right in front of the children services worker named Roy'. "
    SMH. "They all have fresh kicks. What's the problem people?" IDK about anyone else, but I don't buy my son new tennis shoes at the beginning of the summer. I buy them before school starts. Then if they wear out because he wanted Vans and they wear out fast, he gets more shoes throughout the year, and at Christmas. In the summer he wears slides. He does NOT go barefoot. Ol cave dweller."What's wrong with going barefoot?" Well my grandma always got on my tail when I didn't have shoes on, saying if you don't wear shoes, "your feet will spread", not to mention the chance of picking up a tapeworm. When my son was a little baby, he always had socks on, even when he didn't have shoes on, because he'd kick them off. My BFF from HS was raised by hippies, and they never wore shoes. We went camping, she was barefoot, and stepped on a twig. One time she MOVED HER GRASS barefoot! She always walked around town barefoot. Oh, and this trollop and her husband "didn't notice the 7 yo was even gone! "They're not babies, everyone in Franklin knows them." Yeah, they probably know them as the kids that live in squalor, and run the streets unsupervised and raising themselves because their parent's aren't s hit.

    I don't think she spent $2k on school clothes, to be honest. If I spent 2k on school clothes, my house sure wouldn't smell like cat urine, so the clothes can smell like it too, and my house wouldn't look like that. If the house looks like that, along with the roaches, I wouldn't want $200 of clothes in that house.

    I already told you to have a good night ..

  • Nonya Bizness

    Not to mention a SEVEN year old was alone outside a CVS, how far from the house, and no one knew he was missing. My 19 yo opens the front door and says "I'll be back", and I'm like "Where are you going? With who" I see no reason on God's little green earth her house should look like that. Cat pee-I highly doubt they're cleaning the litter box, if they have one, and cats won't use a dirty litter box. Her fridge? Her stove? Her cabinets? Roaches? Roaches don't appear overnight. She is nasty, triflin, and doesn't look like she's missed a meal.

  • Alisa

    They should have not released this info to the public. I feel someone wants to be a hero or some feel good campaign. The kids will face all sorts of bullying. There may be issues within the home they can even remove the kids until they feel the environment is safe. I'm not saying the mom should win any awards. But they can still help the kids w/o all this media attention. Also I was getting the feeling that perhaps this could be one of those "scams" gone wrong. Hv the kid out there & everyone gives money except this backfired.

  • nucynu25

    Right ..that is not just one weekend of laziness its months worth of nastiness.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Her 17 yo is also on probation. I've had bouts of depression where I didn't do anything to my apt, and I NEVER had one roach. My son didn't go hungry either.DDishes didn't get done, newspapers piled behind the couch, but nothing like this.I grew up really poor, in an abusive household, and our low income housing was always clean, because my stepsisters and I had chores. My mom wasn't a lazy, lying bum.A classmate who lived in the low income housing with her aunt and the aunt's boyfriend were more poor than my mom, and like someone else mentioned, she ate oatmeal, tea and toast for breakfast before school.

  • Nonya Bizness

    I swear I saw like 4 bags of beans in that kitchen cabinet with the severely sagging shelf.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Ok, so what about the elderly yt man that called the police because he had no food in the house, and his caregiver had taken his debit or EBT card? The cops came, filled his fridge, got his $ and food card back, and I saw this on FB. I didn't look at it like the police were looking for accolades. They bought the food with their own money, because they saw a person in need. Closed mouths don't get fed.That man could have died since the weekend following his call he was snowed in for days. I don't think the mother is hurt or embarrassed. She's too stupid to be hurt or embarrassed. Her 17 yo is on probation,and she's talking about how the house was clean when his probation officer came over, then didn't know her 7 yo was missing. She's fat, nasty, and selfish. Don't live like a pig and neglect your kids, and you won't have to worry about being put on blast. She thought the town knew her kids before. I'm sure they're really gonna know them now, and feel really sorry for them.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Welfare recipients get it from the state. This was a real life situation, chick took her kids vouchers (worth $450 I believe), sold them and put the money towards her man's bail. Then she went around begging for other people's hand me downs so her kids could have clothes for school.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I need to go back to the post. But did the officer name the family or did he just say he was soliciting donations for a family in need? Those are two different things. I thought it was the latter and then her dumb azz got on the thread and outed herself.

    It's how we all learn right. When I get phone messages or read twitter, I get so confused by what people use. I use this site to help me out. Bookmark it for later use if you like.

  • Pinki

    I am not judging but I doubt that she has $2,000.00 to spend. The struggle is real.....I believe that she should be reported so that a caseworker can help her get herself together and make sure that the kids are in a safe environment.

  • keimaguire

    Girl bye she spent $2,000 on nothing she most likely sold her food stamps and now the kids are hungry I see it all the time

    school clothes bc what they wore last year will not fit this year, school supplies, registration fees, if any are involved in any sports there are sports fees, shoes for throughout the year (each season needs at least 2 pair of shoes). growing up in a household of 4 with 3 of us (at the time my baby bro was still a baby) involved in more than 2 sports and growing like weeds, I saw the bill rung up at the register. $2-3k. it wasn't until high school where the bill went down bc growth spurts were slowed down

  • SpiceGirl

    the struggles are real....sadtrue

  • Candance

    SO.... I have never told anyone excuse my gross fridge I didn't get to clean after the kids.... IJS there are a lot of things I missed cleaning but that nasty ass fridge did not happen yesterday! Poor baby! That mom just needs to take help and make changes!

  • Michelle

    Nasty, dirty, white trash bish.....

  • IGuess

    She didn't even need to respond!!

  • AndYouDontKnow

    In a predicament like this I would believe a 7 year old over a grown woman, and if that's really the inside of there fridge, Jose parents should be ashamed! Then she says her house is filthy because she doesn't have the time to clean up after them!!! That's not a good excuse! My son is 3 and he knows to clean up behind himself; he helps me gather the trash to take out, mop the floor, vacuum, clean up small spills that he makes! So that's her bad for not teaching her four children when they were younger, it starts with the parents.

  • Indies beauty

    The officer could of put her in V.I.P status. This allows her name to pop up and her arrest date but doesn't show a picture or address. I'm not sure if the charge will show but there isn't much the officer could do on that end. Once your arrested it's public record.

  • Allihave2say

    Thank you. I love blog comments arguments, debates, politics and all. Hip on lingo I'm not. LOL. Notice the word "hip" time telling isn't it. I bookmarked it. My 20 yr old says things and I say what does that mean?

  • Allihave2say

    Hungry children is never an option. Food Stamps, friends and family. a hungry child doesn't ask how the food came; they only ask where's the food. Food stamps are for those moments when you're struggling. What I saw in their fridge was wasted food allowed to spoil. What's worse is her name wouldn't have been out there if she had even known her son had left the house.

  • Hmmm oh my GOD

    It said that ?

    Just didn't see that part unfortunate either way tho

    Y'ALL MISSING THE MESSAGE AND ACTING JUST LIKE CPS hopes you will. The bigger issue is WHY is CPS - with BILLIONS of dollars a year in Title IV grants from the Social Security Administration - NOT helping parents BEFORE the children are removed? If the kids were hungry or the place was a mess, the FEDERAL law requires that CPS FIRST try to remove the barriers BEFORE removing the children. So, that means they would have had to first give her food and then check back a few weeks later. They would have had to provide PREVENTATIVE SERVICES PRIOR to removing children - that's what TITLE IV-E grants REQUIRE. To NOT do that is FRAUD, THEFT and BREACH of FUDICIARY DUTIES that CPS is sworn to uphold. Stop allowing the crooks to keep the money then turn people against the parent who never got any help in the first place.
    While this mom may need parenting classes, it is illegal to take photos of the home without permission and she can/should sue for violation of privacy. She will prevail in that lawsuit.
    Shame on CPS. Help us END #FamilyCourtCorruption. Do you know the kids can end up in foster care over this B/S.
    Stop allowing CPS to lie to you! Pay attention. #StayWoke

    She posting pics like the fridge in the corner of that room don't have dirty water just sitting...

  • middleagerant42

    OMG is that a private school? I live in northern California in a nice suburb and our public schools don't demand a donation. Maybe some of the charters but not the ordinary public schools.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    It's a public school... Our whole town is it's own district. I'll leave it at that. We are not a bunch of cities that make up a district. It's pretty ridiculous but, I do see where the money goes. Their standard is that our kids get the best of the best and that costs a lot! lol

  • Jayde da Blade

    naw that kitchen filthy.
    and if she were black the comment community would be unforgiving.
    Trash is all i see and she issss living in squalor.?

  • ImOpining

    Now she's on her fb asking for a maid and that a background check would be to be done as they have lots of expensive stuff. She's even posting her phone #. Not the brightest crayon in the box, eh?
