You see a lot of bad paranting in this world. I see unsupervised kids running around the neighborhood with no Mom or Dad anywhere to be found, never coming out to check on them, no dinner to be home for, nobody checking homework or making lunch.
But when you see something like this, it just makes you SOOOOOO angry! This is the worst form of parenting in the world. Babies only know what you teach them. So somebody taught this kid to smoke like a college kid on spring break. And then what...invited people to come film it? Seriously? Take this kid away and give it to my neighbors who don't watch their children at all and he'll be way better off. This is horendous. It's outrageous. It's unconscionable.
Here's the story from myfoxphilly.com
