Is this good or bad parenting? Dec. 23rd, 2012 @ 11:57 AM Reply

I understand that it's good to be strict at times, but doesn't this border on abuse? After all the kid is being humiliated for something that could have been pretty minor. I mean, what kid doesn't have a bratty moment in their life?

Is this good or bad parenting?

Hell he should be more appreciative next time. He got a ps3 and an action figure. Not most kids can even get one of those things.

Well, atleast they referred to it as an action figure rather than a doll.

NO! Fuck the little brat (not literally), kids are way too spoilt nowadays. I would have smashed the PS3 over his head, the ungrateful shit. I don't think I have ever spent the amount of money that would have cost on anybody other then myself and don't want that to change. Get your own money buy your own shit, if you're too young to work don't mooche off me I don't care if you came from my balls.

These are some of the reasons that I never want kids.


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

Whoever does parenting with that kid is a hero. He got the figure and still want a PS3, you spoiled little fuck. Church or not, his parents are the good ones. I support their actions.

Abuse? Are you shitting me?

This is in no way abuse. Why would taking a PS3 be abuse? He doesn't need it to live. It's not vital to his survival. Hell, if more parents were like this the world would be a better place.

I think it's wrong to make him hold up a written out statement like that and have it put on the internet. There's something instinctively repulsive about that. Sure the initial plan to ensure he learns gratitude is okay; refund main present and buy toys for the poor. He might even remember that fondly when he's older? But this is rather twisted, straight up humiliation of a child has never done anything but damage them.

Alright, I understand taking back the PS3, but why post this on the internet? The kid could ridiculed at school for this. Who posted this up?

It's not abuse, but it damn sure isn't necessary. Also, define "ungrateful", what did he do? Start fucking screaming and crying?

Video games make children grow up to be violent so more PS3's should be taken away. I agree with the people here saying it was good parenting.

They are both wrong in my opinion. The kid was wrong for being unappreciative of the gifts he was given, and the mother was wrong for giving him such a harsh punishment over something simple.

This is (in my honest opinion) the parents themselves being bratty. By that, I mean completely abusing their power. It's a Christmas gift, for fuck's sake. There are MUCH better ways to punish him.

I could see taking away the presents as a valid punishment but posting this picture to the internet?
Despicable.

He doesn't have to be grateful, but he should at least fake appreciation.
Who tells their kid what he's getting for Christmas anyways?

that action figure rules hard and if the kid can't appreciate how hard it rules then he deserves far worse punishment

Perhaps punishing him somehow would be good, but the fact that they're showing him the gift, telling him he won't get it, making him buy other kids toys, and then publicly humiliating him makes me feel sorry for the poor kid.

I remember I said a lot of selfish things when I was a young kid at christmas, but to think that publicly humiliating your child is ever right just bugs me.

I agree with this. Fine punishment if he actually did something wrong....minus the internet humiliation part. Seems a bit fucked up, they prolly just want attention.

Agreed my parents would never have bought me a 300 dollar christmas present at that age.

Seems like a fair punishment to me. I think that kids who have been shitheads often during the year should receive coal. That whole "Santa only gives gifts to good children" only works whenever it is actually enforced.

The kid shouldn't have been an asshole and if he wasn't appreciative of the action figure, he shouldn't have vocalized about it.
That's unfortunate of him, but hey, hopefully he'll be a bit more appreciative of things from now on.

I understand that he was being ungrateful and taking his PS3 and toys away would have been a fair punishment, but I think putting this on the Internet, you know where predators and other people that could cause potential harm to him is pretty stupid in my opinion!

Oh wait its 9gag thats not surprising in any way!

What were you expecting?
