Parent Arrested For Leaving Kid Alone At The LEGO Store


Most people don’t have to be told that it’s not acceptable to leave your child alone and unsupervised in a retail store for almost 90 minutes, but some people don’t get it.

Patricia Juarez left her 7-year-old son at a LEGO store in New York, and the kid was scared. The LEGO store manager called mall security which led to the police being involved. They were waiting at the store for Juarez when she finally returned. She was apparently under the impression the employees kept an eye on children while they played in the store. Yipes.

For the record, LEGO stores should not be viewed as daycare centers.
