    i agree, i can't imagine this. but's it's been 9 years since her son died, and very few children die from choking on food.

    Wait, it's been 9 years?

    I missed that....

    Changes my opinion of her a bit.

    I had thought that her grief-stricken state she did this, but...

    And while I would guess she still grieves, nine years later?
    Education.

    I would be very interested to know what size hot dog the kid choked on, and how closely he was being supervised at the time. I cut up the hot dogs I give my preschooler up into ~1/2" sections and that seems to be about right. Of course, just like anything else, the size probably depends upon the kid.
    That is exactly what we did when we were new parents back during the last Ice Age. Just cut the Mastedon dogs into semi- circles or pie shaped pieces. What has happened is that parents must lack common sense and/or they are not supervising the little ones these days. You cannot legislate people into having smarts!! Maybe we need to steralize those people who are not smart enough to raise children!!! Just joking !! Well sort of !
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess.

    I don't think raising children has to do with smarts as much as it has to do with attentiveness and being able to roll with the punches.

    It's probably relevant that the grief stricken mother is a lawyer.

    She can't litigate her own case, and if she is an attorney it seems like it would have taken her less than nine years to figure out a cause of action.
