As a parent there are just some things that, when I see other parents do them, I rage.
Take into consideration the story of 2 year old Sumatran Ardi Rizal or you may know him as 'The Smoking Baby'
He's older than 2 now but that's not the point. He has been smoking 40 (count 'em) 40 freakin' cigarettes a DAY. Now some people look at this story and laugh, some just shrug it off to 'how they do it in that country' but no, this is such a parent fail I don't even know where to begin. WHY, why would anyone, knowing the dangers of cigarettes, even let their child be around cigarettes let alone put one in their mouth!?! The dad told the news people that 'they couldn't stop him' and 'he threw tantrums if he didn't get his cigarettes, so we gave into him'
WHAT. You are the parent, BE A PARENT!!! If my 2 year old kid decided she wanted to pick up a cigarette and put it in her mouth, I would smack that thing so far away from her she wouldn't know what was happening. WHO CARES if your kid is crying for a damn cigarette, grow a pair and tell him NO. Now the sad thing is this kid is probably going to die by age ten because all he does is smoke (and maybe eat a little too much for a 2 year old) but I guess his parents don't care about that because they don't even try to stop him. Sad.
Short Video about it.
Now this is why I wanted to write a post about this, apparantly his mom put him in rehab (Finally) and here is the video for that.
What do you guys think? I Hope he doesn't start smoking again.
