The good and the bad in the news

A mom in Missouri is arrested for giving her 14-year-old daughter and her friends beer and vodka!

The mom allegedly offered $10 to whoever can chug a glass of vodka the fastest – at her 14-year-old daughter’s birthday party with 13 and 14 year-old friends!! Two of the girls were taken to the hospital after they passed out. 

You can’t even make this stuff up! What kind of evil mom is that!
