Mum Of The YearA 43-year-old British woman and her 13-year-old daughter gave an interview to Closer magazine in which they discuss the mother's, uh, unique parenting strategies. Although her daughter admits to having 4 sexual partners, smoking pot and cigarettes, and drinking beer in the street with her friends, the mother refuses to punish her, since it would be more of a punishment for the mum to have to have her kid around the house. Lovely! The mum also admits to bribing her daughter with cigarettes to do chores. The girl has been punished at school 40 times for bad behavior, which the mum blames on teachers who are "too soft" on the kid. [Telegraph]
