Bottom line is if you cannot take care of the kids, dun do it! The parents are responsible people for their children and they are not their burdens.

Unbelievable. Some people should not be allowed to have children.

I feel sorry for the two young boys ... the young couple does not deserve to be the boys' parents because it's obvious that the two does not have the financial resources to take care of their own children and no loving parents would ever leave their two boys at home unattended.

I'm just glad that the kids didn't manage to hurt themselves.  Kids that ages should not be allowed to be on their own unsupervised!

The well being of your children come first. Couples will have heated arguments but most responsible couples will not put their children at risk. Well the ones who are mature and have no issues.

if they can't take care of kids then they shouldn't even bother give birth to those kids. they deserve to be arrested for doing things like that.
