A mother is facing child neglect charges after she made her two daughters walk to school as punishment for missing their school bus.
Tennessee, US, mum Lisa Marie Palmer, 32, was slowly driving her gold Cadillac 50M ahead of her kids (both age 10) as they walked with their dog in cold weather.
According to Chattanooga Times Free Press, Mrs Palmer was charged when authorities found her and the children almost halfway to school.
Mum said she made them walk as punishment for missing the bus.
It “appeared as if she [Mrs Palmer] was driving ahead of the children and allowing them to walk and catch up to her vehicle and to proceed with that action until the children reached the school,” The Sheriff’s deputy Chriss Ladd said.
“Temperatures were cold, and traffic was beginning to become heavy with citizens heading to work,” Ladd said. “Mrs. Palmer was in no position to reach her children safely in the event of an emergency.”
