    I was expecting to criticize the city, but that was pretty much on the parent.

    This doesn't make sense to me… it's as if the gallery doesn't carry insurance on accidentals.

    Buy a Kindle or shell out some cash on real books. Sit that little hellspawn down and have him read a book. Even have him read it out loud to you, now when he finishes the book you actually have something in common to have a conversation with your child about. Instead of just letting him run wild while you play CandyCrush!

    My dad would have beaten my ass. Jeez people.. your kids aren't special. They're just kids and kids do stupid things, they rely on you to teach them what's right or wrong. Please, please, please take responsibility for the lives you've brought into this world for their sake and everyone else's. PLEASE, next time, stroll on over and tell your child not to touch, just look. Then you can think of better ways to spend 132,000.

    I think they could've put rope around it, or had it in a glass case. But parents need to pay attention to what their kids are doing. Especially if you're around statues, paintings, sculptures.

    She's going to have to sell the house and car(s) just to pay that bill.  I don't think that boy is heading off to college when he gets older.

    Sounds to me like it's half the parents fault and half the community center. Sure the kid was reckless, no doubt. His mom should be paying some attention to the little brat. You shot him out, he's yours to cover. But at the same time, this was not a museum, it was a community center. It was also a waiting area adjacent to the lobby. That's a weird place to put expensive art. Plus, it was on loan from an artist that quoted it that high from an auction. Why would you have so little care put into securing your artwork? It's not a museum, it's a community center. Little kids running around is part of the purpose of those buildings. It's for the _community_, that also means bumbling kiddos.

    So yeah, screw the parent for not paying attention, but also screw the community center for being so tone deaf on what kind of people visit a community center that they couldn't put a simple rope around the thing.

    They aren't gonna have to pay anything. You break you buy violates the uniform commercial code. The owner of the statue assumed great risk by putting it on display, and should have had insurance if they were worried about the risk. Which clearly they should have been.

    Poetic justice. Had that sculpture seriously injured or killed that boy, I guarantee that terrible mother (when I was 5, I was told to be quiet, not run around in places like that, and KEEP MY HANDS OFF) would be suing the pants off the city for millions.

    Wow! Mom did not rush to her kid; she casually strolled to the action. Then, she denies any responsibility by outright telling the community center people that they were done speaking. Irresponsible and oblivious. She has become a pariah but with good cause.

    I say Don't pay the full amount. Maybe 25% The city was just as much if not more liable since they did nothing to protect the statue in the first place.

    She deserves it. I was going to say let’s start up a go fund me page and help this lady pay for it, but after watching the video it looks like she deserves to pay for it herself. I thought maybe the kid wandered off, but she clearly saw what her kid was doing and did nothing about it. Take care of your kids people.

    Both are at fault – failure to control your child and failure to secure the sculpture. I bet the ambulance chasers would be hounding the mother if the unsecured sculpture injured (or killed) the child.

    The community center has way more to answer for than the parents. If they spent public money on it, they are wasteful. If they put it on display with no barrier, they are negligent. If they didn't insure it, they are insane.

    I think both sides should just walk away having learned lessons from this. The exhibitor did not do a full risk assessment and secure the 'artwork', and the parent was negligent in supervising her child. It was sheer luck nobody was seriously hurt.

    That's why kids yshould not be allowed in museum, they understand shit about art anyway . Kids and parents with kids should go to fucking disney land and let the ones with a brain go and appreciate art . My god, if i was the artist , this cunt better move to a different country and change name because if she refuses to pay, i'll sell her and her brat on the deep web , piece by piece . Organs donors are rare to find today and a lot of rich people who don't like to be on a waiting list , are ready to pay a lot for them . I would get my 132000 dollars in a day .

    Parents are definitely at fault here, but I don’t think we blame the children enough. Yes, they are young and don’t know any better. However, I think completely excusing them from the consequences of their actions is wrong. If they are a baby then yes it makes sense to excuse them. However, once their older than that then you should give them partial punishment. Make it so that the mother pays 80% and the kid pays 20% in the future with let’s say a 20 year deadline

    Later news is the parents received a bill for $132,000. if it is worth that much, then they would be buying it, not paying to have it repaired. If they paid that amount, they would then own it. Their insurance company's lawyer is saying it was an accident and the museum did not do enough to support and secure the art, making it easy to become damaged by the public.

    Yall dont call me an “abuser” but if that was me I would punish my child when we come home. He would get a small meal of dinner (im not gonna starve him) and i dont give a damn how old he is cause age doesnt matter. just because someone is a toddler doesnt mean you can just be like “Well, he broke a $132K sculpture. I’ll let him play video games and stay up all night when we get home” thats not how it be.
