12 of the Best Parents Ever
1The father who hired in-game assassins to kill his lazy son's video game characters
Unhappy with his son not finding a job, Feng decided to hire players in his son's favorite online games to hunt down Xiao Feng. It is unknown where or how Feng found the in-game assassins—every one of the players he hired were stronger and higher leveled than Xiao Feng. Feng's idea was that his son would get bored with playing games if he was killed every time he logged on, and that he would start putting more effort into getting a job.
Now that's creative parenting!
2The Chinese millionaire who works as a street cleaner to set a good example for her kids
Yu, who amassed her fortune as the result of hard work and real-estate, has been cleaning streets since 1998. Although she owns 17 properties valued at roughly $1.5 million, Yu refuses to give up the contract job with the Wuchang District Chengguan Bureau Cleaning Team she acquired 15 years ago.
After witnessing what great fortune and a bad attitude can do to a person, Yo Youzheng became determined to keep her family on the right track. She's already warned her son and daughter, “If you don't work, I'll donate the apartments to the country.” It seems to have worked, since her son now works as a driver in the Donghu Scenic Area, making over 2,000 yuan a month, and her daughter is an office worker, with a 3,000 yuan salary.

4The father who wears a skirt in solidarity with his 5-year-old son
Pickert says that in the small town where he lives, his son's dress choices are seen as everybody's business -- and when it comes to standing up for his son, he's determined to show, not just tell.
5The parents who got insulin pump tattoos to support their diabetic child
A while back, Jacob, diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 3 ½, was excited by the idea of getting an insulin pump that would replace four to five injections a day, and he figured it would be like having his own little robot working for him.
Jacob is now five and in kindergarten, and he wears it 24-7. “He adapted pretty quickly, but one time he told me that he felt different and he was wondering if he was alone in the world, you know, wearing a pump,” Boivin said. So she and Aumond decided to get tattoos of the pump, “because no parents want to have their child feel left out or alone.”

9The mother who gave her son an iPhone with an 18-rule contract
Sure, she requires the password of the iPhone and demands to receive the phone at night, but she also encourages her kid not to get so caught up with her iPhone and to just live life. Rule #5 wants Greg to, "have a conversation with the people you text in person," because it's a life skill. Rule #13 says not to take a "zillion pictures and videos" because you should live your experiences instead of being so focused on documenting everything.
However, the two best rules are probably the last two. Rule #17: Keep your eyes up. See the world happening around you. Stare out a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk. Talk to a stranger. Wonder without googling. Also, rule number 18 admits that Greg is probably going to screw up eventually, but they'll figure it out together because they're a team. Yeah, you can say aww.
