Small boy ripped from family, forced to attend college

An Upper West Side child has been reunited with his family for the holidays following a harrowing ordeal that left relatives shaken. The parents of 18-year-old Samuel Tarpley say he was forced to enroll at Trinity College in Connecticut "at least ten years" before they were ready for him to go. "This is just another sad example of society forcing kids to grow up too fast," said his mom, while offering Samuel a drink of juice from a Thomas the Tank Engine sippy cup. "He's just a little boy," added his father while attempting to hoist the 5'10" Samuel onto his shoulders.
