Girl Chuck E Cheese

A 3-year-old Maryland girl’s parents left her at Chuck E. Cheese, but they didn’t know until they saw her picture on the evening news!

With tons of birthday parties and kids’ running around, Chuck E. Cheese can be crazy. But how do two parents drive off for home, unaware that they left their 3-year-old daughter alone at the kiddie hotspot? After attending a large family party, Harmony‘s parents, who share joint custody, both left assuming the girl had gone home with other relatives, according to ABC News. When they saw her later on the evening news, they were shocked!

The restaurant’s manager alerted sheriff’s deputies around 8 p.m. after the little girl told a staff member she was thirsty. Unable to find her parents, the deputies asked local news media to put her picture on the evening news.

Shortly after her picture appeared on the 11 p.m. newscast, many phone calls came in for the girl — including her parents! After police determined the abandonment was inadvertent, they let her go home with her mother. No charges are expected to be filed.

Can you believe this story, HollyMoms!? Have YOU ever left your child somewhere on accident?

Wow! NO. Yet as a divorced mom I can understand the problem. Parents who can not communicate with each other–and we could not…domestic abuse issues…are easily likely for a situation such as this to happen to.

They may not be HORRIBLE parents, but they are definitely IGNORANT parents. Who in their right mind doesn’t CHECK on where there young child is going. How can one think the other had her… it should have been discussed prior to the parties start who was taking her, and double checked before leaving. Simply put it was bad judgment on the parents behalf & hopefully their more cautious now. Their very lucky to have her.

I am a child advocate. A past advocate for the District Attorneys Office. I would recommend the child protection agency investigate these parents. What the Hell were they smoking. OMG! do you see the grimace of a forced smile on her face. She is clearly frightened. I cried that night when i saw this and i prayed for her. I am the mother of a murdered child……God please bless her and protect her. I am willing to bet that if you check on this child 10 years from now, it will not be the last time she would have been put in harms way. Pedophiles are always were children are……….There is no such thing as a miscommunication. Children should be handled with the utmost care. There should never be a breach in custody. Someone has to always know where they are. Why do you think abductors get a chance to steal them you idiot, it’s because they have watched and have seen how careless parents are. They know which ones to steal. They are the ones that are not protected. They have figured that out. Have you ever seen our show call “Our Missing” on TV One. It is in existence because tragic things have happen to small children of color who have been allowed walk to schools, playgrounds etc without adult supervision. Grow up you who think the parents should not seriously be examined and reprimanded…

Oh give me a break. This isn’t a case of two parents living together and driving off blissfully unaware. Did you even read the post? CLEARLY it was a miscommunication, not just between two separated parents but also involving other relatives who were present at the party. There’s absolutely no basis for a finding of negligence here. NONE.

“There’s no such thing as a miscommunication”???? OK, I see now. You’re just a troll, trying to stir up crap on the web. Go play Worlds of Warcraft or something.

it was a miss communication between parents. I agree labeling them as ”horrible” parents is stupid.

They’re not horrible parents. Obviously they both thought the other took the kid. People make mistakes. Labeling them “horrible” parents on your site is just mean.

well, they are not good parents. wouldnt you double check before you left? say ” hey im leaving now, when will you bring her back?” you dont just leave. its pretty careless. its a child, not a purse. you are responsible for their safety. protect them or keep your legs closed.
