      I’m thinking if someone was there to take the pic that same someone would obviously be there to untie them in the event of a fire. I personally am not going to judge anyone’s family based on one single picture since I don’t know the story behind it. I assume the police did their investigations and that’s how this conclusion was made.

    It is unfortunate that these infants had to be tied up in the first place. these things leave an indelible mental scar in these children’s memories and they may very well grow up to be adults thinking it is the correct action to take. We’re about to mark 50 years of independence which is a landmark of our freedom and here we go placing our children in form of bondage. Please parents and counselors, try other simpler methods like time-outs, or some other educational method like drawing something or a star reward whereupon they get a little prize after 5 stars. read them a story to set their little minds thinking and their imaginations working. Use this opportunity to make them smart.

    Here we go again Holmes…. A picture paints a thousand words. This picture clearly shows no pranks nor mischiefs involved it is a punishment form which will manifest itself with those children developing low self esteem and lack of self confidence and self belief. As you said, the authorities are working on it. I do think however, the parents need counseling on ho not to punish little ones.

    Quit quibbling. This is plain wrong. Whether in fun or as a punishment or because the father had nothing better to do. There are always better ways to get things done! This is abuse!
