The Doctors: Tough Love Or Child Endangerment
One Tennessee mom decided she had enough of her two daughters missing the school bus, so she forced the two girls to walk on a busy highway as she was driving with them walking behind her car. Witnesses say she was driving about 150 feet in front of her kids as they walked in the cold and in heavy traffic for over a mile, while the school was still two miles away. The mom was charged with child neglect. The mom was also driving without a license and when the dad was called to the scene, he got into an altercation with the police with a knife. Dr Jennifer Ashton explained that you draw the line between tough love and child endangerment when it becomes dangerous.
