In keeping with this week’s theme of parenting superstars, I give you Shayean Blackmon.
Babysitters can expensive and unreliable, so Shayean decided on an alternate form of child-care: She punched the baby in the face and abandoned it in a park:
22-year-old Shayean Blackmon decided to spend her day yesterday drinking in a park in Highland Park, Michigan. Think of it as a little post-Mother’s Day present to herself. But it seems that getting hammered and caring for her 3-month-old daughter was too much multitasking…
According to witnesses, Blackmon decided to punch her baby in the face, then walk away, leaving her in the park.
The little girl was rescued by someone women who were also at the park. When the story aired on TV, the child’s grandfather, Henry Bowles, recognized the little girl and went to retrieve her.
Not to worry, though. Her problem is solved. She’s been mandated to AA. Of course.
