Jesus Take the Wheel

- By Bossip Staff

A Chinese father that chained his son up to a pole has been granted special help with his more than obvious child care needs:

It was the heartbreaking picture that went around the world – and now the tale of the Chinese toddler chained to a pole while his father went to work has a happy ending.

That’s if China’s notorious red tape doesn’t get in the way. A Chinese nursery has offered three years of free child care to two-year-old Jingdan’s poverty-stricken father Chen Chuanliu. What little money Chuanliu earns goes on rent, food and health care, which is expensive despite the hospitals being state-owned in Communist China.

There’s also the country’s obsession with legal paperwork, which makes nursery care for the children of migrant workers a universal problem in China.

‘The biggest problem for Jingdan now is that he does not have a Beijing hukou, the permanent Beijing residence document,’ explained Mr Pi. ‘According to China’s laws, the boy and his family have no rights to free health or education and other social security benefits because they are from out of town.’ It feels hopeless. And Chuanliu was determined his son would not disappear like his daughter did.

Unable to afford childcare and unable to leave Jingdan with his mother, he had no choice but to take him to work, he said.It was in an effort to keep Jingdan safe from being kidnapped like his sister that Chuanliu chained him to the pole.

Now, however, the family has been given a fighting chance. ‘I just want to show Jingdan and his family some compassion,’ Mr Pi said. ‘I never thought about this being an act of so-called social responsibility.’ Chuanliu has gratefully accepted – and, hopefully, Jingdan will never be in chains again, once the red tape is negotiated. Embarrassed by the shocking photos being beamed around the world, local government officials say they will try and bend the rules for Jingdan, if only to hold up the central Government’s drive for an ‘harmonious society’. The gap between rich and poor is growing in China and unscrupulous criminals go to extraordinary lengths to illicit money by kidnapping children and demanding a ransom from anguished parents.

Children are also sold as slave labor. And despite outrage of the 2007 brick kiln slave scandal, which saw 500 children and mentally handicapped adults kidnapped and sold into slavery, such evil trades continue in China. Hopefully Jingdan’s family’s luck is turning. Now they are praying they will be able to secure the same freedom for their missing four-year-old daughter Jinghong.

Jingdan’s dad said: ‘I am eager to send the Jingdan to the kindergarten if we are allowed to. ‘But we now want to find our daughter.’

Wow. How crazy is that??

    At least he knew exactly where the little muppphuucka was. Hey, it wasn’t like somebody was gonna take him! He chained him up for cryin’ out loud.

    I’m just glad he didnt have him lounging all up in the chinese restaurant. I’m trying to order my food and they’re all up in the way!

    Doing homework and takin’ baths and s.h.h.i.i.t!

    “Why didn’t the father go to jail”, “I don’t care how poor you are, there are options”, um, what world do you live in? Do you understand that being poor in a country like China is NOTHING like being poor in America. Those people do not have the same freedoms you and i have. That may very well have been his only option, or risk the kidnapping of his other child. I know its sad, but just more evidence of the world we live in today.

  • UrHeinessDaQueen

    I totally agree. I’m sure he didn’t have any relatives or friends to babysit for him being that he is from out of town. I’m happy he wasn’t imprisioned…he wasn’t punishing his child, he was doing what he had to do as man to take care of his family.

    In China, they are killing there girls and leaving the on the streets like last nights frat party’s trash. I personally do not find this !$h suprising or shocking. Chinese people, some of ya’ll need to stop having children. There is no excuse for that !$h and B!+(H, you know that! I don’t care if yo’ @$$ was from Haiti you don’t chain yo’ MUTHA F-IN child to a F-IN pole. Ho Sit Down!

  • Miss A.

    Poor little boo,boo! His father needs to be ordered to parenting classes, because no matter his reasoning for such an act that is still child abuse and very extreme parenting. Chances are all he had to do was ASK FOR HELP! Women by nature are very sensitive to the needs of a child and we will step right on in there and do all we can within reason, but I am glad things are working out for him and his young son, because he’s so happy and precious….. customcalendars4u2.com
