In order to become a parent these days, there should be some form of a written test or list of requirements you have to meet….because some people are really not built for the job. With that in mind….we welcome you to the first installment of: Horrible parent of the day!
Our first subject is…..Audrey Willoughby.
For some dumb and unexplainable reason, Audrey had waaayyyy too many beers one night and decided it would be good idea to allow her 10 year-old daughter (who can barely see over the steering wheel) to be the designated driver for her, her boyfriend, and 8 year-old son. Well, not to anyone’s luck….they all ended up crashing into three vehicles and a house. (Way to go mom!)

A South Florida mom had the general idea when she decided her boyfriend was a little too tipsy to drive, but her choice for a designated driver will likely land her in jail.
Audrey Willoughby, 33, pleaded no contest Monday to child abuse charges after she allegedly let her 10-year-old daughter drive mommy home after a few too many beers, TCPalm.com reported.
The little girl rammed three vehicles and a house during the May crash course in designated driving.
Willoughby won’t get more than 18 months in prison under the plea agreement.
According to police, Willoughby and a friend, Michael Ray Green, were giving the little girl driving lessons in Fort Pierce.
Green had a couple of beers and decided it might be best if the little girl drove the group home. Willoughby approved of the not-so-well-thought-out idea, handed her daughter the keys and jumped in the back seat with the girl’s 8-year-old brother.
No sooner than the 10-year old pulled out into traffic did she start crashing into cars. In a panic, the preteen hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and drove the Toyota Corolla into a house.
No one was injured in the crash.
Hey, at least she didn’t let the 8-year-old drive!
All jokes aside …. this lady should definitely get more than 18 months in jail. Putting a 10 year-old behind the wheel is almost like committing suicide.
