Mom sells toys on ebay to pay for broken tub



I'm torn here... On one hand I'm thinking "Good for her!" but on another level, I don't know the whole story here, and that kid with the hollow eyes is showing some real suffering. If the mom is a control freak who over-reacted, then bad on her... If she did it just for a moment in the spotlight, then it's an act of evil malice.

I however intend to show this story, (from neatorama, not from my blog) to each of my kids old enough to understand, with an implication that I approve... After all an object lesson should not be wasted, even if I think there is a possibility the mom may have more in common with the proper name for a female dog.

Plus Ebay seems to have pulled the auction.
