KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A three-year-old child was found wandering outside the Kansas City, Mo., apartment complex where she lived early Tuesday morning.

The toddler was found wearing only a diaper at about 1 a.m. She had no shoes or socks.

Police said that while they were canvassing the area looking for the child’s mother in the area of 1704 Moten Place, she came home and told them she had left her daughter in the care of her brother.

She was issued a city charge for child endangerment and the child was released to the care of other family members.

    This is a terribly unfinished story. Did anyone check the story about the “brother”? What if this woman is a single mom working as a bartender/waitress & had a late shift, so she had her brother watches the child? Stating she was cited with “child endangerment” and the toddler was given to other family members without stating why is just lazy. Follow up & follow through!!

    And no, I’m not so naive to think she didn’t deserve the repercussions, I’m simply saying the story basically counts 1.. 2.. 3.. 10! No middle. :-/

    Why would anyone leave a small child in the charge of another child? This does not show good sense. Children do not have any sense of danger, and cannot show any responsibility, so they need to be supervised by ADULTS, not other kids. Did this mother have any sense of responsibility at all? It does not look like it.
