This video has been making the rounds lately. The three-year-old boy in the video is usually described as "precocious" and a "tough negotiator." I don't see it. I see a little boy who wants what a lot of little kids want: a cupcake for dinner, and instead of being told why he can't have a cupcake for dinner, his mom (Linda) video tapes him on a tear to explain to her why he should get one. He interrupts her, he calls her by her first name, he talks back, and he argues with her.
Sure, he's adorable. All little kids are adorable, but I don't think this video is cute or funny.
Here's what I think: Linda, Linda, Linda, Linda. Listen, listen, honey, listen. Yes, Mateo is a cutie, but lookit he's only three right now. Linda, Linda, Linda, all of your empty threats aren't working. Honey, lookit, if you're going to threaten to pow-pow someone's bottom, then stop talking about it and do it. Listen, listen, listen, this kind of behavior won't be funny when he's thirteen. Linda, Linda, you need rein him in now or you'll have a nightmare on your hands down the road. Linda, Linda, honey, listen, Linda, listen, put down the phone and put Mateo in time out.
