Oh. My. God. This gets my "Stupidest Parenting Moment of the Year" award.

Well, I have to confess it's a tie. I recently heard of a young mother who was pulled over at 3 a.m. New Years Eve b/c she was driving in excess of 80 mph down the highway. The wrong way. With her 21 month old child in the back.

I was gonna say what Lori said, so I will. Oh. My. God. How the hell does a 4 year old get that kind of rage and thought to grab a gun to shoot someone? Oh I know - the type of television shows/video games he's probably exposed to.

I hope that he gets the help he needs to control his emotions and on the right track before he ends up killing someone!!
