Under no circumstances leave small children alone at home or in a car or anywhere where there is no adult supervision or a person you absolutely know you can trust in emergencies. This mother left her children alone while she ran an errand. Do you know what the important errand was? She wanted to get her hair done. This home burned and the children inside died. Please, I know it is easier to run inside the house to grab something. It is easy to leave other children in the car while you drop one of the kids off at the babysitters, or run inside the convenient store for just a moment. A child’s life just isn’t worth it, in no way, no way at all.

BASTROP, La. (AP) — The State Fire Marshal’s Office says the mother of two small children, who died in a house fire, has been arrested for leaving them at home unattended.
Investigators says they are still piecing together their findings in Monday’s tragic fire that claimed the lives of 4-year-old Ta’shae Thompson Johnson and her 3-year-old brother, Clifton Thompson Johnson.
Authorities say 21-year-old Ciarria Johnson left her children unattended for hours while she was having her hair styled.
Johnson was booked Tuesday on two counts of negligent homicide in the death of her children.
It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
