A TEXAS toddler has been released from hospital a week after her mother allegedly glued her hands to a wall.
The two-year-old was in a coma for two days after the incident on September 7.
Dallas police said the child's 22-year-old mother was angry about the youngster's potty training problems. The child was also kicked repeatedly in the stomach.
Elizabeth Escalona remains jailed on a charge of felony injury to a child.
At a court hearing on Wednesday, a Dallas County judge ordered that the toddler and her three siblings would stay in foster care.
Some of Escalona's friends told a television station that she had snapped under the pressure.
KDFW-TV reported that in 2007 Escalona was ordered to take parenting classes and undergo counselling, but Child Protective Services did not remove her children
