Epitome Of A Bad Mother: Atlanta Woman Arrested For Leaving Her 4 Year-Old At Home Alone While She Went To Work!

This b*tch here…

Atlanta police arrested the mother of a 4-year-old boy found wandering around a southwest Atlanta apartment complex after the woman returned home later Wednesday morning, discovered the child missing and called 911.
A police spokeswoman said the mother, who left the child home alone while she was at work, was charged with reckless conduct.

A resident of the Woods at Glenrose apartments on Mt. Zion Road called police about 2:30 a.m. after noticing the boy walking around shoeless and wearing only boxer shorts.

“We tried to get him to show us where he lived,” Atlanta police Capt. Van Hobbs said.

“He wanted a piggyback ride, so one of my sergeants put him on his shoulders and said he would give him a piggyback ride if he showed us where he lived and carried him about four blocks and the house he showed us wasn’t the house,” Hobbs told the AJC before daybreak. “So, he got his piggyback ride, and we don’t know where he lives.”

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., the mystery was solved when a woman from the same complex called police to report that her son was missing.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said the mother, 30-year-old Christina Maronie, had left the child at home overnight while she went to work.

“The mother came home, noticed the child missing and called police,” Jones said. She said Maronie was charged with reckless conduct and taken to the Fulton County Jail.

The boy was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding to be checked out, then was placed in the custody of the Division of Family and Children Services.

We refuse to believe that she couldn’t have found someone to watch her child for a few hours while she went to work. And what’s worse is that it’s probably not the first time she pulled this move!

    Poor little one. He could have been hurt wandering out there. Lots of parents must choose between child care and having food and rent. The world can be a sad and trying place. I’m glad he is alright.

    • bebop84

    • Sheila

    • G.M.

      obviously, none of y’all laughin must be aware of the “Casey Anthony Trial” who was a single mom that would drug her baby “Caylee Anthony” too, just so she could go out and now the baby is dead smh…since y’all like laughin at druggin babies so much, this story is probably right up ur alley SMDH


    • ThickLikeCornbread

      Drugging lil kids is wrong!

      That is why the FDA has pulled all of those OTC drugs off the market so that ignorant ppl won’t *coughs* “accidently” kill their children

  • jj

    Seriously? She had no other options? How about she keeps her legs closed and doesn’t get knocked up until she can afford a damn babysitter?

    • G.M.

      thats too logical of an answer for most females to understand lol XD

    • Honeydew

      Obviously that ship has sailed and not an option at this point

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    U can NOT leave a 4y.o. ALONE. He11, even Im scared of the dark & sleep with my bathroom lite on, so u can only imagine how he feels

    Po’ thang! Im juss glad he wasnt molested or abducted

    • smh

      anybody else not understanding all of this post? maybe you should read other post next time

  • Phyre

    This ws wrong w/o a doubt. However, I don’t feel it was malicious. It was careless needless to say.

    Real question is how DiD the child get out of the house?

    • tavie

      umm..he unlocked the door and left. smh

  • if anything be noble

    @ bebop, LOL! Apparently he needed naptime, since this child is up and out at 2:30am talkin about ‘I want a piggyback ride so I then can get on your back and point to the wrong house’ Boy gotobed. Three more words: 1.Ther 2.a 3.flu. Quit playin. smh.

  • barbie lenox

    Lol first thing I thought was “Shiiit should have gave him Benadryl!” Lol.. But seriously its something I see done all the time, women leave their children home alone after they “put them to sleep” smh uhh kids wake up an they first thought is prolly “OMG where’s mommy?!” Dang shame

  • anon

    It ain’t no excuses for what she did…no babysitter, you call off end of story. Yea you miss a days pay but your child is safe. A job can be replaced but your child is irreplaceable. To those ppl trying to excuse what she did sound like y’all did this ish b4 that’s why y’all got so much sympathy for this bird.

  • deesac

    This is a case of poor parenthood, why bring a child into life with out a clue on how to raise them. What happen to our strong blk women that use to be the back bone of the blk famlies. Child support, clubs, and weaves ((NAPPY HEADS))lord help us.

  • $k8orDIE

    Yes what she did was reckless, but we dont know her situation! At least she was not out at a party or concert! She was makin money for them but still not a smart thing to do! If you into politics, programs to help mothers who are in similar situations like this are being cut out the budget. But yet you have GE who makes 5 BILLION dollars and DID NOT PAY ONE DOLLAR IN TAXES!

    • YokoDMV

      my mom started leaving me home alone after i was 7 – some people said that was too young…i turned out fine.

  • Nee

    This is a sad story and I understand her situation as a single mom living in Atlanta however that was dangerous to the child. I had lived in ATL for 7 yrs & needed childcare but when I asked for help with childcare I was told they did not had funding & for me to take my child with me to my job interview, this came from a person that worked at the Georgia Dept. of Family & Childrens Services so I know this woman had to felt she had no choice even though it was a bad decision. If she had family or friends that could babysit I’m sure she would had someone help her but she didn’t like I didn’t have noone when I was living there so I left and now I’m around my family.

  • if anything be noble

    @ ThickLikeCornbread, oh FDA, SDA, what do they know. At 8pm, all I know is it’s time for 3 words 1.Sud 2.a 3.fed. #iwantapiggybackride smh


    here go the hoodrats making up excuses for an unexcusable act.

  • if anything be noble

    Bet she won’t leave that boy there next time without two words 1.Ny and 2.quil. And I bet that lock is up higher.
