An angry mom is one not to be messed with!
Haley Hassell searched high and low to find a LOL pencil case for her daughter Presleigh to take to school because she didn’t stop asking for it… but was met with a far from happy response from her daughter who threw the new case in the BIN!
The Florida mom posted the story on Facebook stating that her daughter “stared at it and threw it in the trash and slammed the bedroom door.
“She yelled, ‘That’s stupid, everyone in my class has that…I don’t want it anymore!'”.
Haley, not happy with her daughter’s behaviour (and rightly so!) thought this was a perfect time to teach her “ungrateful” daughter a lesson.
Presleigh was given a clear resealable bag with her name written on it to use as her pencil case… obviously this changed her mind about the LOL case… she ended up conveniently wanting it back.
Haley refused to give in and her daughter was left in tears.
Haley wrote on Facebook:
“I told her to get the LOL out of the trash and we would be finding a child to give it to tomorrow..one whose mommy and daddies don’t have money for any school supplies or someone who may not even have a mommy or daddy.
“I explained to her she’s not entitled to anything special and she is taking for granted how lucky she is…So for now she will be using a ziploc bag and will personally be delivering the nice box to a child that could benefit from it.
“Maybe I over-react sometimes but I would’ve done anything to have all the things she does as a child. I truly believe changing your perception and just being grateful can turn around any situation in life.”
The post on Facebook has been shared more than 57,000 times and parents from around the world praised her tough love approach to the situation.
“You did the right thing, when children get everything they want it doesn’t teach them much.”
“I wouldn’t have don’t anything different. Good job momma!”
Some people weren’t too happy with the story and branded Hayley a ‘monster’.
“I guess I pretty much interact with my child on a regular basis, you know, take them with me when buying stuff for THEM so I know what they want. I talk to my child and care about their feelings.
“I don’t fear monger them. But hey, good job being a monster mom!”
