    I really liked the video. And I have to say I loved the responses from the several last kids - I didn't expect them to have such examples too in video after all those (IMO disgusting) tantrums we watch through the most of the video. It was not funny, it was sad in fact to watch a reaction from some kids. KUDOS to the parents who raise their kids RIGHT!

    I'm probably going to regret responding to this, but here goes anyway.

    I fail to see any humor in this video. Being intentionally cruel to children does nothing for me. Seeing their little faces crumble as the reality of what the trusted adult in their life has done, albeit minor in the huge scheme of things but not to them, and seeing them cry......wth!

    I picture my little grandchildren having this done to them, and I just want to cry and then go beat the stuffing out of the "adult" that thought this would be funny!

    Ok, I'm done.

    I like to of the last ones the best. The one with the little boy that says " that ok I just want you to be happy" and the little girl that says" that's ok but maybe next halloween we can share" Those 2 were the best to me.

    The one about half way through that hit the ground like a bag of cement was kind of funny to.

    I think it's a GREAT idea to not take everything so seriously and pull pranks on your kids.
    Even if they are a tad "evil". Gives them a sense of humor and teaches them to roll with things.

    The best well rounded, and funniest kids I've met come from prankster/joking families. Some of their parents are downright cruel, but the kids reactions tend to be snappy and full of vinegar, which I adore!

    The other day one of my nutty friends actually stuck one of DD'S baby chicks in his mouth and started chewing! DD about hit the floor!
    (The chick was fine)
    Now they are best buds and she threatens to tell the whole town about it, sends him into fits.

    I agree with Fly that teasing should be part of a child's upbringing.

    There was never a shortage of teasing and laughing in my family, being able to laugh at oneself earns you the right to laugh at others.
    Laughter is the strongest ally in the face of adversity!

    I know that had I behaved with a tantrum or not shared any sweets with others then they would have been removed.

    If my parents said this to me when I was 4, they would probably not be alive right now.... I was a violent child.....

    Actually I have to agree with this... While I said I liked the video (the last part of it - those kids responses were awesome), I don't see it as funny at all. I wouldn't joke with my son like that myself, and I don't see how someone would be OK to share the reaction of the own kid(s) with bunch of strangers.

    I think people take things like this too seriously.
    1 ) Kids are kids, they aren't capable of rational thinking at the age most of these kids are. Throwing tantrums doesn't make them "monsters" and is NOT an indication of terrible parenting. Kids throw tantrum, good kids throw tantrums and hey, losing all your candy is upsetting news! I DO think kids can and should know that hitting / throwing things is inappropriate, but I wouldn't "bash" some of those break downs.

    2 ) Little pranks aren't going to kill your kids. Kids that never deal with what we call 'pranks' are the ones, IMO, who will have a harder time adjusting to life. Anyway, my parents tricked me all the time, I think they were mean, looking back I also think it was funny (especially for them, lol).

    Yeah, 100% agree. Although I also liked the little girl who said "it's OK" with the smile on her face. :) I hope my son will be like them too when he grows up.
