One month old baby girl dies as parents leave her alone at home after a fight!
It was found that the parents of the infant had a bad fight 2-3 days prior and the mother left the house in anger to go to her maternal house.
In this day and age, instead of being a progressive society, thanks to the news and reports, we've realized that many of us are walking backwards.
Being a parent is not just a responsibility that most of us have willingly taken up, but also a privilege and gift from above. And when people abuse this status and make their ego a priority, disasters happen.
Recently, police found the body of a one-and-half-month old girl child from a locked house in Banswara district of Rajasthan. Apparently, the parents are the real reason behind this little one's tragic death.
A local anganwadi worker was passing by and immediately halted due to the decomposing smell coming out of the house. The cops broke into the house and saw the body. It was found that the parents of the infant had a bad fight 2-3 days prior and the mother left the house in anger to go to her maternal house.
After a couple of hours, even the father walked away and did not return till the cops found the body. The child was left locked all alone in the house for 3 days.
As reported by the Hindustan times, The body has been handed over to the parents after post-mortem. The exact reason for the child's death is yet to be confirmed after the autopsy reports come out.
Parenthood should always be a choice, and that involves a lot of responsibilities. Many situations and parental behaviors, may cause irreversible damages or fatal incidents for their kids.
The differences between spouses should never involve a child. There are a few situations that need extra attention than usual while raising a child and always should be kept in mind to avoid any tragedy.
1) Bath Time
Bath time is fun time. But it is also the most crucial time for any child. This not only involves the temperature of the water used, but also the level of water during the use of a bucket/tub while bathing your child. Never ever leave your child alone in the washroom for even a second till the child is old enough to understand and take care of himself.
2) Sleep Time
The co-sleeping format in India has also resulted in many infant deaths. No parent would do anything wrong on purpose, but in deep sleep the usage of blankets that covers the mouth of the child, or the body weight falling on the child can cause death (SIDS).
Once the child starts crawling and can access places you don't want him to be, make sure the first thing you lock is the kitchen doors and cabinets. There are many sharp objects and sometimes even germ killing, washing powder, and other harmful chemicals for the child who has learnt to understand the world by putting everything in his mouth
4) Balcony Access
Even if your balcony is well wired and protected, unfortunate incidents do not send any invitation. The house balcony should be always shut unless there is supervision. This also has a direct access to the outer world and rains that may cause a problem for your child.
Adult supervision is strictly needed when you take your child to a park. It may not be your fault, but another older kid who is running away to glory while playing might just end up hurting your child. Or the swing balance might be lost. Make your child have fun with full protection and supervision till he is old enough.
