Only in New York: Crazy Parenting News From The Big City

Navigating the New York City streets as a parent is much more than just being careful on the streets.

Having made a career out of helping New York City parents stay informed and updated on everything that goes on in our crazy city as an editor of parenting magazines, and also raising three kids here myself, I know that this city presents a certain set of unique challenges to moms and dads.

However, it also has its fair share of insane, hard-to-believe parenting news stories. Stories that make parents living everywhere else shake their heads at our city. So we scoured our local papers for some of the kookiest news to come out of the Big Apple. Ranging from ridiculous to insane, here are just some of the recent, head-shaking stories in New York City parenting news:

3-year-old Levi Vidal from Bergen Beach, Brooklyn, who has autism, had to endure a five-hour bus ride home from his school in Manhattan and finally arrived home distraught in a soiled diaper. His mother Serena, who was naturally irate, said “He was delirious, starving and in his full diaper. It’s insane, heartbreaking. How can you treat kids like that?” Good question.
