Well, she is off to a fine start down the rocky road of crime! Twelve years old and setting fires? She should be made to pay for all the damage and have to visit the fire station every week-end to get counselling. Her parents need to keep a close eye on her, she is not to be trusted.

My guess is that her parents don't actually care. Obviously haven't taught their daughter right from wrong. Sad but true.

I agree with the first part of your comment, the the bit about ADHD **** shows your ignorance. ADHD is something a lot of parents are having to deal with on a daily basis and it can be hell. You are probably one of thos people who think that we should just give the kids with it a good hiding @that will teach them',

However I do think that parents should be held more accoutable for their childrens actions.

Even she does have some kind of disability, it should never be used as an excuse, only a reason why she did something wrong. There are far too many people with disabilities who use them as excuses for getting away with something.

So many judgemental comments! None of u know this child or her parents or their circumstances. ...... for all any1 knows this could b a cry for help, a way of getting herself noticed. Children often display negative behaviours as they dont know how to express their emotions/control their feelings or dont know where to turn for help. Obviously I hope im wrong but people need to think there could b other impacting factors to this incident!!
