On another note, when the 2-year old was eating spaghetti off the floor, this doesn't mean she was eating a whole plate of spaghetti right off the floor. She could have dropped a strand or two and been picking it up off the floor, which wouldn't be all that uncommon.
The point is, the ignorant mother was asleep. If she were awake, and taking her responsibilities as a parent seriously, she would have seen her 2-year old drop her food on the filthy floor, as stated in the article, and stopped her. Yes, journalistic opinion gets out of hand at times, but this remark was warranted, I believe, as the writer was stating 2 facts. First, that she had another young child and second, that she was not paying attention to that child either.
