Well, here’s a new one for the Bad Parenting files. Quebec police just spotted a YouTube video of a family cheering on their newest young driver, a 7 year old tooling down the road in an SUV. Dad’s running the video camera from the passenger seat, mom and the sibs – a little sister, sans seat belt, and older brother – are in the back seat and young Samuel is behind the wheel. Police found the family, thanks to Dad’s extra-descriptive narration… which also urged his little gum-chewing son to look at the camera and smile. Now police are weighing traffic and criminal violations, and child endangerment charges. OK, reality check, people. How old were you when you first drove a car? And what do you think of this?
