Katie explained her frustration, noting that she had tried everything to teach her sons responsibility, but they continued to take their privileges for granted. "They came home from school to a box of books on the floor. YouTube is also banned forever."

She captioned the video, "Gentle parenting, who?" The extreme measure quickly drew mixed reactions from viewers. As of June 26, 2024, the clip has been viewed more than a million times, and people were quick to leave their thoughts on the punishment.

"Am I the only one that thinks taking bedding and teddys is too far [sic]?" one person asked. Another user offered to pay for a stuffed giraffe seen in the video, explaining that it had been their childhood toy lost during a move.

A third commenter quipped, "[Why] don't my kids visit me anymore[?]"

A fourth user opined, "💯 Don't agree, you said they are spoiled that's not their fault [sic]."

Some users shared personal experiences of similar punishments, describing long-lasting trauma.

"My mum threw my teddys away and I'm still traumatised at 18😭thats too far that [sic]," one commenter revealed.

Another noted, "I've had this done to me before it actually causes trauma issues due to having loved things taken from you because you made a mistake?"

Yet another user recounted, "My dad's girlfriend did this to me and my sisters in our shared bedroom. All it did was make us resent her and him. Instead of showing/teaching us, they made it worse."

However, some parents were on board with the mother's strict punishment. "I'm unsure why people are coming for mum?" one person said. "My kids are spoiled and ungrateful most of the time. This is my next step if it carries on."

Another user expressed, "My mum left my brother with not even a bed frame. Literally a mattress on the floor. These kids got it GOOD."

Katie also responded to comments about the fate of her sons' belongings. When asked if her kids would get their things back, she replied, "Of course. They're my world. Just a life lesson needed x."

She sometimes uses the excuse of wrapping presents in her bedroom to get some peace and frequently lies about the time to enforce bedtime.

She tastes their food and drinks to check for "poison," restricts sleepovers to their house only, and cooks alternative meals if they refuse to eat the dinner she prepared.

Woman's Response to Unruly Child on Plane Sparks Heated Debates

In an incident that has ignited a fierce debate across social media, a nurse-turned-TikTok content creator, Shayla Monnier, a woman in her 40s from Idaho, California, found herself and her husband, Andrew, at the center of an airborne altercation involving a young child.

The couple was seated on a flight from Atlanta to Denver when the troubling event unfolded, leaving passengers and viewers divided on the appropriate course of action.

Monnier took to TikTok on June 17, 2024, to recount the startling episode. In the first video, she described how, with about an hour left on the flight, a child seated in front of them began to misbehave in an extreme manner.

"So today on my flight from Atlanta to Denver, there was about an hour left in the flight, and the kid in the seat in front of me turned around and went like that," Monnier demonstrated, sticking her tongue out as if to blow a raspberry. The child's spit landed on her face and her husband's arm.

Initially, the child's parents attempted to intervene. However, their efforts were unsuccessful. "She again fought against them, turned around on the seat, and spit on us again," Monnier recounted about the little girl whom she guessed was between three and five years old.

Despite her shock, Monnier tried to block the child's spit with her hand, but the child persisted, spitting for a third time. The parents' inability to control their child, who was seated between them in the middle seat, left Monnier and her husband astounded and frustrated.

Monnier expressed disbelief at the parents' lack of control over the child, noting how they struggled to manage her behavior. Despite their attempts to stop the spitting, the child continued, and Monnier and Andrew were left to fend off the spit with their hands.

"I was kind of shocked and the parents reacted and told her not to and then it just became a thing. And she again fought against them, turned around on the seat, and spit on us again. This time I put my hand up just to block the spit for me and her parents kind of like, grabbed her and had her sit down. But she fought," explained Monnier.

She remarked on the surprising ineffectiveness of two adults in handling a single child, especially when both parents were wearing masks but their daughter was not.

"Okay, another thing that I probably could have mentioned just for fun is that both of her parents were wearing a mask. She obviously was not, and they clearly had no control. Two adults could not control a four-year-old child," Monnier stated incredulously.

The response to Monnier's first video was mixed. Some viewers suggested gentle parenting techniques, such as giving the child crayons or toys, while others supported Monnier's frustration.

"The number of people who said they wouldn't do anything, or it's just a child, or I would give her crayons or a toy or something like that. I guess you don't understand how out of control she was," Monnier responded in a follow-up video posted on June 18, 2024.

In this second video, Monnier elaborated on the severity of the situation, emphasizing the child's uncontrollable behavior.

"There was no talking to her. She was fighting to get over the seat and as soon as she got over the seat, she was spitting. I'm not negotiating with a child that is spitting in my face," she declared.
