As it turns out, being neighborly is against the law in Michigan.

It appears that a Michigan Mom who volunteers to watch her neighbors children for an hour before the bus picks them up for school in the morning is in violation of the law and the State wants her to STOP immediately...or apply for a daycare license.

She watches THREE kids besides her one.

That's a total of FOUR children.


Here's the story.

Apparently, she's in violation of a "day care" law. The law states that, "no one may care for unrelated children in their home for more than four weeks each calendar year unless they are licensed day-care providers."

Reason #220,021,111 that Michigan is weird


  1. Who does this woman think she is making sure these kids are safe and get on the bus ok? She's a menace to society.

  2. I think I smell a witch hunt... let's get some pitchforks, torches, and townsfolk and find all these bad women.

  3. I have a HUGE problem with this. If we can't be neighborly and help each other out by taking care of children for a few hours then what? Is it better if they are at home by themselves? What is this world coming to? We have laws for a reason but this is ridiculous...isn't there a REAL criminal they can prosecute?
    That lady's neighbor is evil...nobody likes a tattletale! NOBODY!

  4. is it tattletail or tattletale? In any event...BAD

  5. That is just totally odd. First of all, someone had to call to "report" her. And who would even think to do that? Wow. That's all I can say. Weird doesn't even cover it.

  6. yes, let's go after the responsible parents and let the irresponsible, asshat parents continue to ruin society.

    geesh. who would think to report this woman for helping out? i know...someone who has way too much free time on their hands.


  7. Helping your neighbors out. Disgusting.

    Seriously, this women needs to be taught a lesson and we should show her what happens to kind and considerate people. Blech.
