PER CURIAM

Mother and father both appeal from judgments terminating their parental rights on grounds of unfitness, ORS 419B.504, and neglect, ORS 419B.506. On de novo review, ORS 19.415(3); ORS 419A.200(6), we affirm the termination of both parents' rights on grounds of unfitness. Accordingly, we need not, and do not, address the alternative ground of neglect.

Affirmed.
