  1. Oh, lighten up! My entire family played every kind of prank on me, when I was little, even "meaner" than these. We still laugh about some of them. I wouldn't have missed a single one of them.

  2. I don't think the kid in the red was in on it. I think he's just really mature - the way he addresses his younger brother about his miscalculation is priceless!

    I respect the comments that suggest this is cruel, however, in most cases I think this "prank" could easily be turned into a teachable moment. Yes, I think many of these parents could use this prank as away to disavow jokes that hurt others feelings. Granted this approach could only work on kids 4 and up but it could be well worth it.

    I appreciate the commenters who noticed some really inappropriate responses in the older kids. Hitting walls and throwing things is a sure sign of anger management issues. Get on that parents!

  3. Yep. I was "teased" just like this by my dad when I was a kid....of course the teasing didn't stop there. But I was a sissy and called "Veronica" because I couldn't deal with it at the mature age of 4. His death from old age won't come soon enough.

  5. It's good to know that not everyone at Towleroad has a stick up his ass.
