When the term “cool parent” comes to mind, you think of the one who knows how to have a good time, lets you and your friends have said good time, and doesn’t say a peep about it to anyone. When your kid has a sleepover party and you supply the booze and drugs and it leads to an arrest and likely shame, that’s when you’ve hit your peak of cool parenting.
Texan Mandy Wells is that cool parent. One night in November, she supplied alcohol and weed for the kids at a sleepover party. When one of the girls posted a picture on Instagram with a glass pipe, her mom saw the post which led to Mandy’s arrest on November 19.
From The New York Daily News:
An affidavit said that Wells “thought for a minute that it was a bad idea but she did it anyway.”
The partygoers included two 12-year-olds, two 14-year-olds and four 13-year-olds.
Wells allegedly told the youngsters they could drink beer because they were spending the night. Later, she asked if they wanted to smoke weed, which she passed around.
Parenting 101. If you’re going to allow your underage guests to drink some booze and smoke some weed, then you make sure they are staying the night first. Don’t want to send those kids out into the dangerous world unsupervised by an adult. Mandy was just doing the smart thing there.
Wells faces a few charges for her actions.
The mother of three was arrested Nov. 19 on a felony charge of delivery of marijuana to a child and the misdemeanor charge of furnishing alcohol for a minor.
When police searched her home, Mandy declined to give up her dealer after admitting to self-medicating a child. Cool mom keeping it 100 by not snitching..
