Really? You guys are basing an assumption of bad parenting and spoiled kids on a few second clip? And assuming that the ones that got upset aren't taught to share? Rather than taking the clip for what it is intended to be, a humorous look at kids reactions.
BOTH of mine are EXPECTED to share, say please & thank you, and always consider others feelings. I'm often told how well behaved my two are (sometimes I think people are pulling my leg, lol), but I can GUARANTEE that the 4 (almost 5) year old would get upset and cry. He may even throw something or hit the couch. They have a limited way of expressing their feelings. Does that mean he's going to grow up to be a selfish jail resident? No, it just means that something that he holds value in was taken from him for no reason, and that upset him. And for not going trick or treating at 3-4, that is a great age, they get to show off their dress-up skills and play pretend. What's wrong with that? So what if they get candy, you can always ration it. Ours lasts well past Christmas.
The 10 year old wouldn't break down, but she would definitely know that it was rude & selfish of me to eat all her candy without asking, even if she was going to share.
