Here's a really weird way to go about parenting; bribe your children with cocaine to get them to do chores. If only my mother had tried that.

A real cool mom and dad are under arrest for allegedly convincing their teenage kids to clean their rooms by bribing them with weed and cocaine.

Joey and Chad Mudd from Florida were arrested Monday after they allegedly admitted to police that they regularly used drugs in their parenting of their two teenage daughters, aged 13 and 15, as a bribe to get them to do “household chores and excel in school.”

According to the police report, published by the Smoking Gun, Joey—the mother of the teens—waived her Miranda rights post-arrest and willingly admitted to smoking weed with the kids at least five times “as a bargaining tool.”

Even more disturbing are the allegations against the father, Chad, who stands accused of snorting cocaine with the girls in his truck in the parking lot of a Treasure Island.

Both parents are facing multiple felony child abuse charges. The kids, including a third child still in pre-school, have all reportedly been placed with a family member.
