Dad teaches toddler to smoke [VIDEO]
Shocking video footage emerges of a man teaching his child to smoke.

Video footage is being shared online of a man lighting a cigarette for a very young child. He appears to be the father of the kid, and he and the woman who is filming the two-minute video giggle as the child attempts to smoke.

It has been viewed many times on LiveLeak, but YouTube has removed the video as it violates the terms of service of the site.

It’s not the first time parents have filmed their poor parenting decisions.

The context isn't always easy to grasp from a short video clip, but in this one you can clearly see the man passing the cigarette backwards and forwards to the child, actions which have seen people calling to have the child removed from the man’s care.

We’ve chosen not to show the disturbing footage, but you can watch it if you like by visiting the Daily Mail. Man teaches toddler to smoke [WARNING, GRAPHIC FOOTAGE, MAY DISTURB SENSITIVE VIEWERS]
