I'd say most parents are responsible, and even the parents of the child mentioned in this article. I wonder of olos73 is or was ever a parent. Were you 100% on top of where your toddlers were? All the time? I this olos73 is reckless for making such comments without knowing the full situation. Easy to be an armchair spewer. Irresponsible comments.

The day my kid came home from Kapiolani chicken wire went up on the balcony and stayed up until she was old enough to understand the danger of falling. Plus the lanai doors were locked shut whenever we were not in the living room. This is called being a responsible parent. In every instance of a balcony death of a child in Hawaii the cause has been irresponsibility so olos73 comment is reasonable.

I AM a parent with 2 grown adult children. They NEVER were hurt beyond scrapes and scratches. NEVER left alone at the beach or pool without supervision. NEVER left alone in a building or anywhere higher than the first floor where there is a balcony or lanai. Even when we stayed at hotels, they as toddlers were kept an eye out on. So, there. That's MY answer to YOUR comments. Are YOU a parent? Did Your kids get hurt? NIImi, read other comments about this, not only SA, but all the other websites. Yeah, MOST parents are responsible, but evidently NOT this one.

In this crazy word we live in... the owner's association of that building will get sued for not posting a warning sign on the balcony.

I hope the owner of the building has a lot of insurance, the slip and fall attorneys are probably licking their lips on this one.

Take care of that kid. At least until 13 when they can beat their sister for not cleaning their room.
