    But seriously, it's just terrible. I wanted to shake her but you just have to refrain in those situations.

    "Life Is Ours, We Live It Our Way".
    "That boy's parents must have made some terrible mistakes".

    "SHUT UP, MOM!"

    Seriously, her child needs to learn that they can't have their own way all the time. And of course, that stealing is wrong!

    My poor poor children. Life is about not always getting what you want..... How many toys would play group have left if each child took a toy per session..... I pity this mother when she is collecting her delinquent 15 year old from the police station for stealing- after all he will have no idea it's wrong

    Some kids don't hear the word NO nearly as much as they should. This kid is an obvious example of this.

    The staff member was taken aback and tried explaining that she needed to use the cars for her next group but the mum refused, saying, matter of factly, "if I take them off him he will throw a tantrum".
    The leader said, "So what? Sorry but he can't have them".
    The mum, who seemed surprised and annoyed, then relented and asked him to put them back. The child, obviously not used to not getting his own way, angrily threw the cars across the room (he did leave one in his pocket, though!) and the mum just shook her head at the playgroup leader and said "see? This could have been avoided!" before leaving in a huff.

    What on earth is this teaching him? That he is entitled to everything and anything? That there is no such thing as disappointment in life?
    I was stunned
    Omg WHAT?!?! What a spoilt brat and the mothers behavior is just nuts! She is just setting him up to expect never to be told no :O

    Wow. Good luck trying that excuse with the police when your 16 year old steals from the shops mum. I can just see it now - "But mum says I can just take whatever I want and no one's allowed to stop me!" Um, no.

    We'll see her in ten yrs crying on a current affair cause her kid pinched a car because he wanted to, crashed and killed someone... To which she'll say 'I just don't know why? I gave him everything he ever wanted...'

    According to her theory I'm a bad parent. DS is told 'no' on a daily basis. A couple of weeks ago at the shops he asked if he could have some Trash Packs to which I said the usual 'not today I can't really afford it'. Then he wanted a chocolate and I said 'no'. 'Fine. I'm not moving until I get something!'. I walked off and left him there. I'd just gone around into the next isle and he come around apologising because he knew his tantrum was out of line.

    Seems lile in a few year time her child will just be pocketing the first toy and a chocolate too. I know which sort of parent I'd rather be.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone
