Irving strangulation case: Mom says she wanted 'normal kids'


  • Dallas Fatherhood Examiner 5 years ago

    When our Magician was 5 we went through the rigmarole to get him tested based on a doctor's recommendation and we were told that 5 was still too young to know with any kind of certainty... so I'm very curious about this 3 year old daughter. Hell, the 5 year old son, too, for that matter.
    Your post is the first I've heard about this and it's disgusting on so many levels. What is this woman's definition of 'normal'? A child that isn't going to require attention? She should get fish. Where was the father? Where was her doctor? Where were her friends? Where was her head?
    Single parenting is tough, but as marriage rates decline faster than pregnancy rates, and divorce remains a hobby it is becoming more common. Is it too late to write support groups into the healthcare bill, along with free preventative care?
    Keep keepin' on, Sharisa

    Sharisa, you bring up a very important point about isolation and feelings of hopelesness. I think it's important for all of us who are parents of children with autism and other disabilities to take care of each other and notice any signs of depression and hopelessness in other parents. Signs like dropping out of a community you've close to, refusing to talk to people, poor appetite, poor sleep, and making statements of grief and hopelessness. Helping with referrals to counselors pastors, talking to your spouse, other family members, and reaching out for help and getting a consistent break from caretaking are extremely important when you feel that way, or see someone else feeling that way. Thank you for this insightful article.

    There had to be some mental illness happening with the mother. No matter how hopeless and isolated you feel that alone cannot drive you to STRANGLE your CHILDREN with a WIRE after they refused to drink toxic cleaner. You don't watch your children's faces turn blue and die in front of you systematically killing them unless something is VERY WRONG with you. It is important for the community and friend to reach out OF COURSE, but I blame the husband, family, and CPS who were IN the home and saw what was happening--the older son was left alone in the house at the age of 4. You don't do that unless something inside you doesn't care about what happens to that child.
