So the other night wifey and I were crusing the net and came across the YouTube vids of the infamous, gangster ass Laterian Milton. Now wifey had never heard of Laterian before (she isn’t on the web like that), but she was amazed at what she saw. Now for those of you who don’t know Laterian is a 7-year-old kid who stole his grandmother’s car, drove it a few miles, crashed into a few other cars and when he was interview by the news and asked why he had done such a thing, he replied, “I just wanted to do hood rat things with my friend.”
Of course I found the video hilarious; wifey? Not so much. She was concerned about our own kids and asked me, “What if our kids turned out like that?” Shit, damn if I wasn’t tempted to wake my son up out his sleep and spank him for preventive measures (I kid, I kid). But in all seriousness, one of my biggest fears is having unruly kids. For the most part wifey and I have been doing pretty good so far. One thing I’ve learned is we must be a unified front. It’s amazing how my three-year-old son can sense when wifey and I are going through some shit and then tries to play us against each other.
He’d ask me for something and I’d say no, and then he goes right back and asks her. Now if wifey and I aren’t communicating, it’s easy for Bundy Jr. to get what he wants. So I may not want to see wifey’s grill on a particular day, but I’ll be damned if I end up with a lil Laterian Milton who does “bad stuff because it’s fun.”
How do ya’ll with kids manage to keep a unified front?
See Laterian for yourself. Smh…
