Just when you think you’ve heard it all, there comes a story that makes you question why people do what they do.

Grace Pressey was arrested on five counts of child neglect. She is charged with giving her children sleeping pills while she went to work. That’s right; you read it correctly. Pressley would administer sleeping pills to her children and leave them alone at home while she left. In addition to this, the home in which she and the children lived had no electricity. The electricity was disconnected as of February 10th.

When an anonymous caller called and notified police of what was happening, police should up at Pressey’s home. After knocking on the door, the oldest child answered the door and told police officers that their mother had gone to work and left them home alone. According to police reports, Pressey would give her children sleeping pills and Nyquil so that they can sleep. The children range in ages from 7 months to 7-years-old.

Pressey told the detectives, ‘she is a single mother and it is hard to do things with all her five children, so she leaves them alone multiple times when she has things to do.’

Knowing that she would face trouble if the children were caught home alone, Pressey did what she thought she had to do in order to make things happens. Pressey went on to say that she had to work in order to pay the bills.

Well, she got caught and is now facing the consequences on her actions.

Two of her children were placed in foster care and the other three children as being cared for by their grandmother.

No child should face what these children faced. Let’s hope that they will be able to handle this in their upbringing and not allow what happened to them to make them bitter but better.
