Probably one of the best examples of poor parenting was displayed by an Internet game-obsessed Chinese couple, who actually sold their three kids in order to play games at various Internet cafes.
The shocking story of Li Lin and Li Juan was finally revealed by the mother of Li Juan, who found out that her son and daughter-in-law had first sold their second child – a girl – for less than 500$ in order to continue paying for online games. After this “transaction” the young game-obsessed parents decided to sell their firstborn son for the greater amount of 5,000$ in 2009. The couple continued with this horrible practice later on when they had a third baby, which they sold for another 5,000$ in order to continue with their online game mania.
Even though it took years for Li Juan’s mother to realize what he and his wife had done, they were finally turned to the authorities to receive the punishment they deserved.
