Kids Reaction To Accidentally Stealing

A mother has filmed her son’s emotional reaction after realising he has accidentally stolen a cup from a restaurant. The video, posted to¬†America’s Funniest Home Videos on YouTube, shows the distraught boy, begging his mom to take him back to the restaurant so he can return the plastic cup, when she refuses he wails ‘But I’m your sooonnnn!’.


The young lad genuinely believes the the mother has her phone out to call the police, rather than comfort the young boy and set him straight, the mother giggles while filming him.

The video has sparked debates on YouTube about whether the mother was right to not put her child our of his misery sooner, or was she helping to teach him a lesson about stealing? Comment on our Facebook Page to give us your thoughts.
