“My own mudder won’t let me go to the pub”

She sold out Daddy along the way but, hey, whatever it takes for this noble cause. In the end, I was convinced.

    That’s gold. I’ve got a 5 yo granddaughter and apart from the accent she’s the spitting image!

    Priceless – much the same as my five year old granddaughter! Some light relief with all the other posts flying this way and that. Thanks.

    The kid has a fantastic command of language for a six year old.

    Lovely ray of sunshine amongst all the doom and gloom posting elsewhere at the Cat.

    Brought a smile to my cranky old face.

  9. She never said ‘like’ once. There is hope for the future after all.

    Love that the kid is passionately arguing her case and not blubbering that she can’t go.

    Why wont she letter?

    Me too. I was in a time machine watching my own daughter arguing her case.

    No guesses what she went on to be. This one probably will as well.

    Just give her just one small nip of scotch whisky and hopefully it may put off all her ambitions for a debauched, drunken life for about the next 12 years!

    That’s a future Prime Minister of Ireland, right there.

    So, the mum is basically baiting the kid, the kid is playing along, the mum is videoing it on her phone and putting it up on youtube.

    A generation of kids whose relationship with their parents/adults is constantly mediated through a “screen”. Cool.

    Maman, not really. This is just modern parenting. You have to fully explain it to the child and listen to their justifications. My own mother would have said you’re not going, and that’s that, and my dad would have clouted me one if I’d taken it any further, but I hardly had an ideal upbringing. So having received that treatment, I mostly listened to my kids, and yes, their explanations were hilarious and their intensity in argumentation was similar to the above.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this clip and that little girl reminded me so much of my grand daughters, one in particular who takes after me a lot.

    Maman, you make a valid point but, to me, it’s to be judged case by case.

    Plus, parents have been posing, baiting and showing off their children with cameras and home videos for a long, long time – well before the advent of iPhones.

    I follow Irish news and affairs quite a bit which is why YouTube ‘recommended’ this video, I guess. I thought it was pretty funny.

    Mum didn’t once use “because I said so”.
    Trouble lies ahead.

    Talking of the Irish

    The Final Word…

    A Greek and an Irishman were sitting in a Starbucks one day comparing their two cultures.

    Over a double latte, the Greek mentions “We built the Parthenon, you may recall, along with the Temple of Apollo.”

    “Well, it was the Irish that discovered the Summer and Winter Solstices.”

    “But it was the Greeks who gave birth to advanced mathematics.”

    “Granted, but it was the Irish who built the first timepieces.”

    Knowing that he’s about to deliver the coup de grace, the son of Athens points out with a note of finality: “Keep in mind that it was the ancient Greeks who invented the notion of sex as a pleasurable activity!”

    “True enough, but it was the Irish who got women involved.”

    There is no vaccine against stupidity.

    Warning Mummy, narcissism ALERT!

    The removal of all hardship creates weakness. No sure? Just turn on your telly.

    UN Convention on the Rights of Children – guaranteed no more physical abuse or sexual exploitation, the right and freedom of education and the “best interests” of the child be the top priority, just to mention a few.

    How has that worked?

    Article 5 (parental guidance and a child’s evolving capacities) Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents and carers to provide guidance and direction to their child as they grow up, so that they fully enjoy their rights. This must be done in a way that recognises the child’s increasing capacity to make their own choices.

    A lot of parents have failed miserably with this one.

    Good on Dad for ignoring her.
