The 20 Absolute Worst Parents of 2012

Parenthood is not easy. Bad parenting, however, appears to be quite simple if the bad dads and moms of 2012 are an accurate example of parents this year.

From parents who have more children that they can possibly handle (one, for most of them), to cruel and bizarre punishments, to downright lack of care for children whose lives they've been charged with, these are the most awful parents from around the world in 2012. Just 2012. And in case you're wondering, this isn't even a full recollection of the gross neglect of people who have sex with their kids or put them in microwaves or drown them in the tub; these are just the bizarre and unbelievable examples of the worst parents of the year (since our last list of The 10 Absolute Worst Parents of 2012 (So Far) was published).

Be aware that child abuse is unsettling, and this is a list of bad parents that have engaged in the worst of the worst behavior so while seeing some of these instances might assuage you of some of the guilt you feel for spanking your child this morning, there's also a lot of mentally jarring images and accounts on this list of awful people.
