The "parents" of this child kept her over medicated so she would be quiet. I truly hope that they are charged and convicted of murder. They don't seem like they 'simple' people the defense is making them out to be. The mother must be quite clever to successfully con the doctor into believing that all 3 children had mental disorders. It doesn't seem like a case of Maunchasen's by proxy; just a case of simple disability fraud. It broke my heart for the little girl.

This makes me want to cry. How could they do that to that poor little child? Sometimes I think that during pregnancy every parent-to-be should take parenting classes. I mean, babies cry, toddlers throw tantrums, and teenagers...well, I'm not quite sure what to call it. My mom called it a nightmare. The point is, it is natural and it is a part of life. Meds should not be a way to control otherwise expected behavior. I agree that the parents should be charged. I only wish that the protests of others had been heard before it was too late. I also hope that the siblings are able to recover from the abuse their parents hurled at them.
