Whether you were naughty or nice, the holiday season is supposed to be about family, kindness, and sharing. So when one dad thought his kids weren’t quite getting the true meaning of Christmas, he decided to teach them a lesson.
YouTuber Scotty B. records his daughter giving him some sass. He asks her why she never listens and she yells back, “’cause we’re not you!” Scotty then asks her to get one of her presents from under the tree.
When she brings back the specific one he has asked for, she refuses to give it to him at first. Then, when Scotty eventually takes it, he throws it in the fireplace.
Of course, the whole thing was a pre-planned stunt and the present was only a gift-wrapped empty box. However, that doesn’t stop him from getting the desired effect.
Scotty Captioned his video as follows:
“My kids sometimes have a hard time following simple requests. It is a constant struggle with them to listen to us. So, I decided to wrap an empty box and put it under the tree.
I waited until they didn’t listen (again) and then this happened… I love my kids more than anything, but sometimes, they need to be taught a lesson! Happy Holidays!”
At the end of the video, Scotty records his daughter very angry and upset. She then threatens to take his phone and throw it in the fireplace. Something tells me she didn’t learn her lesson.
What do you think – did Scotty take it too far?
