Parents play drinking game with their 10-year old (April Fools Day Blog)

What is this world coming to? I realize that parents don't want people telling them what they can and can't do with their children but these parents need some talking to!

There was a family that enjoyed drinking and they wanted to share their love for drinking with their daughter. The parents were playing Mario Cart on the wii with their daughter and every time she lost, she had to take a drink. They had Hennessy and Courvoisier and three shot glasses. By the end of the evening the poor girl was vomiting and crying. The parents thought it was the funniest thing and laughed themselves into a frenzy. Are these people sick or what?

A neighbor came over and was invited to join the game, but  declined and called the police.  The couple was taken into police custody.  They are defending their rights as parents and didn't see any problem with what they had done.  The parents claimed that their parents played the drinking game with them when they were children.  Ignorance is bliss and it came be blissful for many years.

Do these parents know about alcohol poisoning? What crimes should they be charged with because this girl could have died? I would definitely consider this child abuse and child endangerment. I can't do this story justice so you can read the original story here.



This story never happened but it was fun writing it. Happy April Fool's Day! Gotcha!!

  • I thought you were going to say she had to drink Kool-Aid, lol. Yikes, I wonder what a 10-year-old would really do with a shot of real booze? Blech.
