Extreme Bad Parenting: Man Tows Toddler In Drinks Crate Behind His Motorbike

Sometimes you see such extreme examples of bad parenting that your brain cannot even begin to process the logic behind it, or how someone could ever conclude that it was a Good Thing To Do. So you simply look on in slack-jawed amazement and ask yourself WHY?

This is one of those occasions.

Here is a man on a motorbike in China. Behind his motorbike, he is towing a drinks crate. And in that drinks crate is a toddler.

The picture was taken by a passer-by in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, who posted it up on social networking websites saying: "When I first saw this bike coming down the road I thought he had a dog or something in the box and I thought, 'How cruel'.

"But when it got closer I could see it was a boy, no older than two and I was horrified."

Horrified, confused and shocked kind of sums us up too, but we shall refer back to our original question: WHY?

What is the most ridiculous example of 'oh no' parenting that you have seen?
