Did a Mother Go Too Far When She Pranked Her Son?
A Utah mother made her son cry when she told him he’d inadvertently purchased a $50,000 car on the Internet. She has now been widely criticized for going too far.
A YouTube video of a mother telling her young son that he had hit the wrong button and purchased a $50,000 car recently caused an uproar with people criticizing her for going too far. The video, which quickly began racking up hits, shows her son crying when his mother told him he had purchased the car.
According to media reports, the 8-year-old had been browsing the site for a car for his father to restore when he came across a Mustang he thought was only $500. When he found it was more, he quickly shut off the iPad. His mother picked it up and, realizing what had happened, she asked him why he had purchased the $50,000 car. The YouTube video shows what followed. Once she told him the truth, however, he too laughed about it. However, not everybody thought it was funny, with many criticizing the mother for the prank.
So what do you think, a harmless prank or a cruel joke for a mother to play on her own child?
