Little kids just don't understand Dave Ramsey

This video is kind of sad. I know we have to teach our kids about using credit wisely - but at 3??? Obviously this little girl has seen SOMEONE use credit cards. Who gave her this toy anyway? If you want to take it away from her so bad - you probably shoul;dn't have given it to her in the first place. Why did they have to make a big deal about it. They didn't have to tell her they were going to trow it away or cut it up.... Sometimes at my house toys "blow away" or get lost. They could have taken the "credit card" away at night - she probably would have forgotten all about it.

It's not that she knew what a "credit card" is... not specifically... I bet her parents use debit cards all the time. She knows you swipe the card and get what you want... and if you use a debit card, well, there's nothing wrong with that.

The part that killed me though was watching the dad at the beginning of the video when he's laughing because his daughter starts to cry. I know that we've all laughed at our kids temper tantrums at some point - but HE caused this one... and I think he did it on purpose. It was too scripted...

I dunno... it's OK to tease your kids a little bit, but not like what they did. And she was way too young to get "the joke".

Gee... what would we do without YouTube? Isn't it great that it can document all of our bad parenting moments and share them with the world? *oh yes, I'm being sarcastic!*

Anyway, no offense to you... that video just got me all riled up!!!

I "ditto" pretty much everything you said in your post.
