[Fox Philly] A Montgomery County dad just pleaded guilty to child endangerment for abandoning his teenage daughter. Police say it was all because she got a bad grade in school! The dad apparently dropped the girl off near Cheltenham Square Mall. The girl was abandoned. She was told that she could not come home and that she no longer met her parents’ expectations in terms of her grades. But every parent that we spoke with says that punishment does not fit the crime. A 16 year old was forced to pack her bag and get in the car. Her father, 47 year old Tuan Huynh was kicking her out of the house. All for getting a bad grade on a calculus test. The young girl was dropped off on busy Cheltenham Avenue and left to fend for herself or find a ride home. Even if she attempted to walk, it would take almost four hours to get home. Assistant DA Cara McMenamin tells us the girl wandered around near the Cheltenham Mall for hours before a minister finally approached her and called for help. Huynh pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child. He isn’t allowed home until he has completed parenting classes. But when we saw his car in his driveway, we asked to speak with him. Other parents are horrified that someone would risk their own child’s life over something so trivial. Huynh could have faced up to five years in jail but instead he will do two years of probation and 100 hours of community service. The assistant DA tells us he had no remorse for what he did, and that he can do with his child what he sees fit.
Fuck yeah, Tuan Huynh! It’s about god damn time a story made the news to remind us that there’s still a shred of accountability being taught by parents. Trust me, Tuan’s daughter is going to breeze by her future adult competition comprised of kids who were brought up by the pussified “everybody wins, it’s OK if you suck” regime. So there’s zero reason for him to feel an ounce of regret. He didn’t hit her. He didn’t tape her up and cram her in a cabinet. He packed her a bag and dropped her off at the mall. That’s right. He drove his 16 year-old daughter to the m-a-l-l & left her in front of Pac Sun. Oh, the horror. Quite frankly, it’s a sad day in America when that’s considered punishment at all. Parents think a calculus test is trivial? B’s are cool? OK. Teach your kids their education isn’t always important. It’s OK to mail it in on a test every now and then. Striving to be the best & learn the most is overrated.
Well, not under Tuan Huynh’s roof. The ultimate selfless father, putting his own freedom at stake for the success of his own daughter. Let’s not forget the additional pressure of being Asian. Imagine being the dad responsible for the only stupid Asian kid? If only Scrody were still alive, we’d have a contender for his annual Father of the Year title.
