Just drive.  :colo:

 

BBC News, Washington

 

The parents of a six-year-old boy in the US have been charged with neglect after the boy drove their car for 10km in an attempt to get to school on time.

 

Police in Virginia said the boy, who was not named, took the keys to the car after he missed the school bus.

 

He drove for six miles (10km) on major roads, weaving through traffic and overtaking slower cars, before losing control and going off the road.

 

The boy told police he learned to drive by playing video games.

 

Police said the boy was so intent on getting to school after failing to make the bus, that he got the keys to his father's Ford Taurus and took the wheel himself.

 

"When he got out of the car, he started walking to school. He did not want to miss breakfast and PE," said Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkins.

 

His road trip came to an end only after he ran off the road several times before hitting an embankment and utility pole. He was not, police said, wearing a seat belt.

 

He was treated for minor injuries at a hospital before police took him to school.

 

It happened at 0740 on Monday, while the boy's mother was still asleep.

 

Both of his parents have been charged with endangering their child. He and his four-year-old brother are now in protective custody.

Don't see why the kids should be taken away.

 

Aye it sounds a bit harsh but a 6 year old shouldn't be left to get up and get ready for school on his own.

 

I've never even heard of a six year old voluntarily getting themselves together for school.

I used to put new sheets on my bed, and sometimes dress my wounds.

Because the kid shouldn't have been trying to get himself up and ready for school and out for a school bus at the age of 6! Plus he managed to take a car 6 miles without his parents realising. Maybe if they got the mother got her lazy arse out of bed and looked after the kids then they would still be at home with her. Jeez!
