A Boulder, Colorado woman was ordered to get court approval for all future boyfriends after her sons were attacked by her former boyfriend. The court hopes that such measures will ensure the safety of her children in the future.

While high on Crystal Methamphetamine, he stabbed her five year old son twenty times and her seven year old son twice before the older child managed to run for help. The ex-boyfriend has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Both children recovered from their wounds, and have been living with their grandparents since then. Their father says that they look forward to move back in with their mother.
