Challenges of parenting
I remember a disastrous drive with my daughter, then four years old, during which I contemplated locking her in the trunk of the car. But I didn’t. Unlike a Maryland couple, who drove 20 miles with their 12-year-old son and his friend in the trunk because . . . Their lawyer says it was a “mistake.” The boys had asked to ride in the trunk of the car.
It would be just for fun, the boys said. The Dulthoys, knowing the ride wasn’t a long one, obliged.
Someone who saw the boys shut up in the trunk called the police.
The dad is supposed to be a “model father.” The mother is a former teacher.
