Mom Accused Of Leaving Kids "Home Alone"

A mother is under arrest, after deputies say she was leaving her children home alone.

Tashanda Broady of Roanoke Rapids is charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Deputies say they got tipped off that Broady was leaving the children unattended at her home.

When they arrived deputies found one of the children, an 11-year-old, walking down the road and two more children in the home alone. The children in the home were 5 and 7 years old.

Broady was jailed on a $3,000 bond and has a December 9th court date.

    As a single mother of two who is educated with 2 degrees BA & BS, work full-time with a stable job and a ex-husband no one has the right to judge this woman. Until you have been in her boat I would suggest that you keep your negative comments to yourself. If you don't have children well guess what when your time comes good luck having someone who you can totally depend on when you or your partner have to work late or an unexpected meeting. Good luck finding someone to take care of your kids while you earn your hard money because you don't quailfy for any help. Good luck putting the responsibilities on someone else so you can have the perfect life. It takes two to have kids so you can't blame that women for being single. Unless you do then get your facts together before you judge someone. For the waiting list for daycare I don't get public assistance and I had to wait for at six months to pay out of my pocket so get your facts toget

    southergal!!! Don't be so quick to ask for yet another strict law about how parents can raise their children. These cases need to be assessed as they are recieved and not by some strict unyielding law. In this case the parent was charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. This is against the law and was the law used to criminalize what she did. For example, there is no law against using your cell phone in your car yet but there is a law against reckless driving. It is a simple matter to connect one with the other if an accident occurs. Why the need for a new specific law?

    To all the women up here talking about if you raise your teenagers right or older kids then they will know how to take care of their little brothers or sisters, let me tell you this if you are a good parent you raise your teenagers to be teenagers not parents to your younger children. Let them help you when they want to with the smaller children but in no way do you demand them to do the duties you laid in the bed and made. To single lady you are sick, your child makes a sandwich because you had a long day, get off your %%% and feed your daughter. As for the waiting list of daycare its because you can't afford daycare and your on the waiting list for social services to help you. Educate yourself and get your tubes tied since you can't take care of an eight year old after a long day oh my god boo hoo on you. No really boo hoo for your daughter.God bless her future. You really should re read your post and think about if that is the kind of parent you really wanna be.

    Hold on, I could not have said it no better. There is nothing in this article that states she had these children without being married. We all get married thinking that it is forever, but sometimes it does not work out that way. I am lucky that I have family around me who helps my husband and I with our children, but not everyone is that lucky.

    Obviously you people saying dont have kids unless you can take care of them have never hit rock bottom......Although I find that hard to believe. I have four children all by my ex husband. He left me when our oldest was 12 to have a party life. I have not recieved a dime in child support and he has been in and out of prison since. My point is how was I to care for my 4 children without a job? I went to work, but could not afford the bills and childcare. Juct for after school care for all 4 was 200.00 a week!! My oldest son (13 then) watched his siblings so I could provide for them. My children are now 23, 21, 18 and 16! And they are all respectable young men. I did what a mother had to do to care and provide the needs for my children. I am happy that all of your lives are so wonderful and that you have never had a worry, but for me and others no worries isnt even reality.
