    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.

    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.

    This brought back some really good memories. I raised my son on my own so there was no one to mimic. But that boy could could really try to negotiate a deal. There were a lot of times I would have to leave the room so he did not feel like I was laughing at him. But I feel that by not spanking or yelling as so many parents do that this taught him the fine art of compromise as an adult. And now when his 3 girls try to negotiate deals that he is able to understand where they are coming from and there is no spanking or yelling. Kids are people,too. They think and feel and have opinions and as parents we should take the time to listen and hear them Children learn by example So be careful what example you give them. If you make it impossible for them to talk to you as children you will never know what they are into as teenagers.

    "If you make it impossible for them to talk to you as children you will never know what they are into as teenagers."

    Amen to that stitchit123. This little guy had the opportunity to express himself and his opinions in his best 3 yr. old way, however, the mother dictated the outcome. The discussion was over and he did NOT get a cupcake. I'd say she was in control.

    If my kids had called Carol instead of mom I would have ignored them. And my kids knew that if I said no, and they kept it up it would be no for a long time. To many parents want to be their kids "friend" today and kids have no respect for adults because they know they can push their way into getting what they want because it is easier to finally give in than hold firm. Doesn't mean you can't talk to them, but as the parent we have final say. And many of today's kids want things that are bad for them, thanks to TV and their friends.

    I had to giggle about this, I posted the same video back in March and got the same reaction as this thread.

    I too don't like the way he is talking to his Mom. But, it is funny how he is stating his case for cupcakes.

    Once upon a time I didn't believe in spanking. Then I started volunteering at an elementary school and then taught 7th graders for a year. I can guarantee that a spanking would do a lot of kids and society a lot of good. froggyintexas

    I am of the "because I said so and there will be no further 'discussion'; do you understand?" type of parenting. My 3 children and 4 step children understood and when a parent gave a response to a question there would be no further discussion unless the parent chose to further explain or listen to further arguments from the child. All were spanked when they needed it and punished (and rewarded) suitably. They all grew up to be respectful adults and quite successful as well. They raised their children in a slightly less restrictive circumstance but then none of them had 7 teenagers all within 5 years of each other, either!

    I have to disagree, as my own son was injured by a spanking from his father. He ended up with 6" diameter bruise on the back of his thigh that was so severe it was there for months! I cringe inside at the pain involved, just remembering it, and it happened almost 40 years ago.

    This is one of those really CUTE things kids do, that turn into nightmares if allowed to go on after only one episode. The kind of thing that says to you (when the kid is a teen-ager) "Why did I ever think that was cute?"
