Doing Shots With DadFriday, June 8, 2012
Deciding how to discipline your child is probably one of the hardest parts of being a parent. It is also one of the most criticized parts of parenting by others. Everyone always has tips and opinions on how you should raise your children. Sometimes the help is good, and sometimes it is plain annoying. But, whatever your parenting style is you will probably have a problem with this next story. A man in Arizona found out that his two sons, 13 and 14 years old, were stealing liquor out of his liquor cabinet. Instead of sending them to their rooms without dinner, he decided to give them a tall glass of reality or at least a shot of it. He sat them down and made each kid do 3 shots of hard liquor. He then threw them in the pool. A neighbor called the cops when he heard kids crying in the backyard. When the police arrived the father was found to be intoxicated himself and both kids were wet in the back yard vomiting. The father was eventually arrested by the police.
