Parents Arrested After Leaving 11 Year Old Home Alone During Holidays


An Arizona couple has been charged after leaving their 11-year-old son home alone for weeks, over the holidays. When police went to check on the boy on Dec. 12th, he told them his parents had been out of state since Thanksgiving, that they left food in the freezer, and that he hadn't been to school in two weeks. The parents, 34-year-old Melissa Green and 40-year-old Bobby Jo Green, returned home on Dec. 29th and were arrested for child neglect. The boy is in custody of child protective services. What kind of reason do you think the parents will give for leaving their child alone for an entire month? How old were you when you were allowed to stay home by yourself?
