This is something you never want to read—
A Florida man is accused of child abuse for allegedly putting bleach in his baby’s bottle.
But he says he simply made a stupid but innocent decision based on some bad parenting advice ….
…. From the county jail, the first time father, said he thought he was helping his sick daughter – who’s suffered from breathing problems since birth.
“I was told by another friend of mine that giving baby a top of bleach, just the top of it would help her breathe a little better,” Carron said.
Instead, she threw up and her panicked parents called 911.
Carron and his family insist it wasn’t intentional.
“It wasn’t a smart thing to do but Carron doesn’t know, this is his first baby,” said Chianti Washington, Carron’s sister.
“It was a dumb decision on me. I heard someone else did it so I wanted to try to help her,” Carron said.
—but I did, so now I’m passing it along, because the only way to get rid of a mindworm is to communicate the parasite to someone else. Dilution is the only known cure. (And no, it isn’t tremendously effective.)
Allow me, please, the luxury of a rant:
