Woman goes on vacation, leaves 11-year-old home alone

Bad Parenting 101: Don’t leave young kids alone while you get away

By Skyler Cooper

The woman left the boy alone for about three days, cops say.

Laurel Clayton Schwartz has been charged with misdemeanor child abuse.  The North Carolina mom apparently went to Orlando on May 23 and came home on May 26.

The arrest warrant shows social services officials said the young child didn’t eat one of those nights. They also reported his bedroom was so filthy that it was unhealthy.

Schwartz turned herself in after the warrant was issued.  

She is being held on a $5,000 bond.
