Hopefully the one item they keep is the toddler.

Shop Til You Drop

Mommy!
Mommy, why do I have to run around in circles?
SHUT UP OR I'LL NAIL YOUR OTHER FOOT TO THE FLOOR!
(Bad mommy joke, sorry)

Surprised that this doesn't happen all the time.

In the video, a parent hands the toddler their unlocked phone. And how did the parents not notice a $2000 charge? !

Parenting is not for sissies. You gotta be tougher and wiser than your spawn.
I recently had a prime example of that. My grandson had a 'banner' day and his planner had several notes from his teacher citing his bad behavior. When I read that at home, we had a little chat.
Me: Did you apologize to your teacher?"
Him: Yes.
Me: Are you sure about that?
Him: Yes.
Me: Consider your answer carefully. If you are not telling the truth, I will find out AND there will be consequences.
Him: Okay.

I emailed the teacher. No, he had not apologized. I asked if she could meet us on the sidewalk after school let out. She agreed. I got out, walked around to the sidewalk and bent down to his level. The teacher was standing right there.
Me: I've got a question for you and I need you to pay attention. Did you apologize to your teacher?
Him, not daring to look at me: No.
Me: Right. AND you lied to me about it. Let's take care of that right now.

He does not get away with a perfunctory, "I'm sorry."
'I'm sorry for being defiant, disruptive, sarcastic, and disrespectful and I will not do that again.'

Do not mess with or try to bluff Grandma MOTW. The teacher sent me a nice thank you email.

Millenial parents are stupid. QED.

@MOTW - You rock!
