Awful mother abandoned 6-year-old daughter at McDonald's (VIDEO)

Some people are just too irresponsible and selfish to be parents. Take 23-year-old Lucy Parra, an Arizona Latina woman who was recently arrested after she abandoned her 6-year-old daughter at a local McDonald's!  What kind of mother does that?


Parra reportedly brought her daughter, Everlyn, to the food chain to buy ice cream but when the girl went out into the parking, the mother's car was no longer there. After about 15 minutes searching for Parra, McDonald's staff members alerted the police. FORTY minutes later, with the officers still on the scene, Parra returned to look for her daughter.

Are you kidding me? She just left her child for almost a full HOUR? That's just horrible. Thankfully, those employees were aware of the child and alerted the authorities to watch out for her, but imagine if they hadn't noticed. I mean, what if the little girl took it upon herself to wander off in search of her mom? Something awful could have happened!

After returning, Parra, who reportedly has a history of drug problems, appeared to be intoxicated and tried to claim that she had never left the parking lot--despite that there were only four cars there at the time!  

To make matters worse, police discovered that the mom also has FOUR other kids besides Everlyn, none of whom she actually has custody over (her own mother--the children's grandmother--and their father normally take care of them). They also found that Parra had only been released from another jail just hours before this incident.

Oh my god! What an absolutely terrible mother. I just don't understand people like that. Why would you have five kids if you obviously don't want to take care of them? Instead of selfishly putting her needs ahead of her kids, Parra needs get her act together and go get some help. Though she might not like being kept away from her children, she has to realize that until she solves her own problems, trying to force her way into her kids' lives will only hurt them.
