I just turned on CNN this morning and heard this story - grandmother made 9 year old girl run for 3 hours without stopping so she could get a candy bar. The girl died from dehydration. Normally, I don't pay attention to such stories as they stick in my mind and I don't want to think of such negative things. But really - how stupid can people be? The girl wanted a candy bar. Normal thing for a 9 year old. Was the grandmother expecting that she should burn off the calories before consuming it? I just don't get it. Some really crazy people out there.
