From me, an 81 year old grandmother, I think this kid's dad has been showing him a bad example when arguing with his wife!! I would give that kid a "time out" and have a good talk with the dad. Yes, it is funny to watch, but would you want to live with a kid like that? Not me!!

Oh my, I'm with you Roberta. He's adorable, but he needs a spanking. Please don't be upset at me for saying that . I spanked my kids and they are all respectful, responsible young adults.

Adorable? I think not. However, some of her other clips were hilarious. I just spent an hour looking at bad signs and bad paid for pictures. Very funny.

A kid after grandma's heart. Loved it.

I would have had a very hard time keeping a straight face! But I do have to agree...he definitely needs discipline. A good spanking never hurt any child. I cringe when I hear parents giving in to their screaming child. And ( IMHO ) that's what's wrong with today's kids. They respect no one.

I loved it because my son was one of those "negotiations are on", smart as a tact kids. Because I knew his universe was so limited as a child, and he learned as he went along, I made sure he moved in the proper direction with his verbal skills and that he was not disrespectful to other children or adults, and the outcome of our discussions was appropriate. No spankings or harsh discipline involved. Imagine my surprise when I was blessed with a great nephew just like him! Both turned out to be amazing, intelligent adults and productive citizens. I think Linda has a pretty good handle on things.

Oh my, remembering "Kids Say The Dar nedest Things" with Art Linkletter....I would say this YouTube was up there just as funny.

I'm by no means a young mother our kids are middle age, both were at times as gregarious as this little guy on the video. Both of our kids grew up respectful and obedient and now have professional careers. I still chuckle out loud at some of the conversations I had with them when they were developing their personalities.

It's so easy to sit in our golden years and be critical of how the 'younger' generation is raising their kids, just as our parents may have been critical of how we were raising our kids. I guess I choose to laugh with a more open mind, than to find fault in others parenting skills. JMHO....

I did not find this funny at all.

Yes, it would be funny if this was a movie or a TV show but this is real life.

Yes, it would be funny if the story was relayed to me later (if I was a friend or family member).

It isn't funny when Mom video tapes and posts his antics on-line for the world to see. This is no different than when the parents reward their children to stop a temper tantrum. It's time for Linda to become the Mom.
