This parent was arrested after getting three 5th graders drunk. (WPRI)
It almost seems like these adults were trying to battle it out for the title of "Worst Parents of the Year." Here are two disturbing cases of when parenting goes horribly wrong:
The first case comes from Rhode Island, where Christina White is accused of serving alcohol to three fifth graders under her supervision. White, who was drunk, purchased alcohol for her 10-year-old daughter and two other girls. An older sister of one of the girls showed up at White's house and found all three of the young girls were stumbling around and slurring their words. They were rushed to the hospital, where one of the girls had a blood-alcohol level of 0.084.
“I would never buy children alcohol,” White told WPRI Eyewitness News, but police reportedly found bottles of alcohol and a bucket of vomit at White's home. White eventually confessed, and was charged with procuring alcohol for a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The second case happened in Pennsylvania, where a couple is going to court for tattooing an obscene word on a 12-year-old girl's arm.
The girl was visiting a friend's house and was under the supervision of Randall Charlton III and Melissa Becker. According to the Titusville Herald, one of them used Charlton's tattoo kit and tattooed a "smiley face" on the girl's arm, then they also tattooed the word "bitch" above it.
The report says the 12-year-old girl requested a tattoo and said her mother would be okay with it. But of course once the mother found out she was furious, and called police. Both Charlton and Becker received multiple charges, including endangering the welfare of a minor.
If you haven't had enough of reading about crappy parents, here's another story for you:
A Texas mother faces charges after not only driving while drunk, but also driving with six kids sitting on the roof and trunk of her car.
After a playdate at a swimming pool Kisha Young didn't want the six kids she was supervising to ruin the upholstery of her car with their wet bathing suits. Young asked the kids, ages 8 to 14, to ride on the roof and trunk of her Chevy Malibu for the short ride home.
The police report says four of the six kids were flung from the car and suffered injuries when Young took a sharp turn. Young kept driving, unaware of what happened until a witness flagged her down. The children were taken to Cook Children's Medical Center where one of them, a 12-year-old girl, is being treated for a severe head injury.
Young failed a field sobriety test, and was charged with intoxication assault.
