Though letting it suffer would be bad, and the dog ended up dying in the accident anyway, I'm sure she wasn't thinking rationally. Many people see their pets as their children and have strong emotional bonds with them. If her parents didn't make sure she realized that putting it down was the best option for her dog, the only thing she heard and the only thing that they said that got through to her was that they were trying to kill her dog. I think it's a little irrational to blame the parents for not putting their keys away. She was fifteen, I doubt they expected her to steal the car, so it's not like they were going to go out of their way to hide their keys. Even if they did hide them, she's fifteen, according to this link she left in the middle of the night, when they were asleep, so there's not really anywhere they could have put the keys where she wouldn't have been able to get them in the middle of the night with no one to stop her.Originally Posted by AlixJ18
How sad, i know she loved the dog but come on letting it suffer is worse, here's one reason to keep keys away from where your kids can get them.
That's why i don't understand, why are we all expected to figure out what we're going to do at 16 or 18? How about i wait till i'm 25 and fully developed to decide where the rest of my life is going lol. I do know bodies are fully developed young, i haven't grown since i was 13.Originally Posted by AspireToInspire
A child's brain is not fully developed at 15. Not even close to fact no matter how hard you try to convince yourself
At the age of 14, I resent this. I seriously hope I get more developed than this, because I can recognize my complete and utter lack of maturity.Originally Posted by Josh James xVx
Yeah....she was fifteen. At the age of fifteen most people are about as mentally developed as they're ever going to get. That sounds harsh but it's literally true for the majority of the population right now. She was functioning at an average adult level and should have had no problem locating keys.
