|Police say these parents gave their teen|
daughters drugs for doing their chores
and doing well in school. This all
happened in Florida, of course.
"OK, Johnny, if you clean up your room you get a nice big ice cream cone."
Or something like that.
According to The Smoking Gun, a Florida couple went in a little further with the bribery trick.
Why is it always Floridians who do strange things?
Anyway, The Smoking Gun says mom Joey Mudd gave their teenage daughters, ages 13 and 14 for jobs well done when they cleaned their rooms.
Bonus: The pot probably mellowed the girls out, too. No more shreiking about potential boyfriends. Then again, pot isn't exactly healthy for a kid, and pot is illegal for kids everywhere so I can see why the mom is in trouble with the law on this one.
Apparenty, dad Chad Mudd took this even beyond the level of mom. He gave the cocaine. It was a lovely dad/daughters outing: The trio snorting cocaine in dad's truck. Wonderful.
Needless to say, the parents were jailed, though mom at last report was out on bail. The kids are being cared for by a relative, who is such a hard ass that the relative is not providing the teen girls with drugs, booze or anything else like that.
Imagine that. Having to clean your room without a nice bong hit afterwards.
I'm also thinking the Mudds won't get a contract to write a book about novel parenting skills.
