1)The father with the playboy magazine (The child is too young to know the difference between any magazine)
True, the kid won't remember it.
2)The fat mother on the bike (OK, the child should have a safety helmet)
Who needs a helmet when you've got an airbag equivalent?
3)White haired man on a swing (looks like a harmless accident - I don't think he is the child's parent)
Grandparent, most likely, but I don't agree this is bad parenting. Kid needs to learn where it's safe to walk, and where it isn't. Survival of the
fittest and all of that.
4)The man with 2 kids on his motorbike (again the kids should have safety helmets but it's happens a lot)
Uhm...really? A helmet is ALL you think is needed here? If this guy lays that bike down, the kid on that side is toast, as in dead. No, this is
EXTREMELY dangerous and a direct risk of these kids' lives.
5) The two men dressed up as women (Anybody ever hear of Halloween?)
Yeah, we'd REALLY need the backstory here....
6)The family photo with the dog (The dog is playing not biting)
Agreed, and look how happy the dog's handler is!
At least 2 or 3 more are obviously staged for the camera.
1)The baby with the toy bullet on it's head (The bullet was placed on the child not shot)
Yep, that's just funny...why hasn't done this?
2) The child watching tv in a shopping cart (The boy is not that young)
The only irresponsible thing here is not making the kid stand to watch the TV. Fatty could stand to lose some lbs....
3)The parents holding their kids upside down by the leg (I'm sure many if not all parents have done this at some point)
Yep, confuses the hell out of them, and makes them quiet down pretty quick...
The bad ones in my opinion
Windsurfing with a child strapped to you is a dangerous risk of drowning
Yeah, that one is nuts, akin to Mr. Motor Scooter's brilliant idea....
The Children in a bar is not harmful to the child but it is bad parenting.
Have to know the backstory though. I went in plenty of bars as a kid, for different reasons. (This was easier in a small town). I suspect he's the
kid of one of the workers there, and everybody working there is likely watching out for them.
The child licking the mixer (if still plugged in is dangerous - most likely it's been unplugged)
I doubt it, in the photo, the cord going offscreen is raised, leading us to think it's in a plug. Still though, stupid, yes...bad parenting? No, not
Car seat in the street is a bad idea.
Right up there with the windsurfer or motor scooter....this is super dangerous, and just plain dumb and irresponsible. What they hell were they
Child under the blue cart was probably behaving badly and warned (but it's still bad parenting to photograph it)
Nah....humiliate him, teach him a lesson.
The child with the plastic bag on it's head is the worst IMO.
Yep, and even worse they took the time to snap the pic vs oh...I don't know...taking it off the kid's head!
