Mom lets kids wreak havoc on store | What Would You Do? | WWYD
– Mom, mom.
– Go away. Mom Aiden won’t leave me alone. – She totally started it. – Guys, guys quiet down, I’m on the phone. Mommy needs a break. – [John] Traci’s digital addiction to her smart phone has made her a distracted parent and she’s certainly not the only one. The Atlantic just came out with this article about the dangers of distracted parenting. The Headline: When it comes to children’s development parents should worry less about their kids screen time, and more about their own. (kids singing and playing loudly) So you’re out shopping at a nice boutique when you see kids out of control. Their mother doing nothing to stop them. Do you speak up and reprimand them yourself or do you stay quiet because they’re not your kids? What would you do? – Kids shouldn’t even be allowed in this store. – [John] Our hidden cameras are rolling at Hangar Clothing Store. – Mom, mom. – [Traci] Guys stop, I’m on the phone. It’s my day off, you gotta do your own thing. – These two clearly see what’s going on. – They’re just kids being kids. – Oh yeah. – I got you back. – That’s not bothering you guys is it? – No. Oh, okay. – [John] They seem to having compassion for our stressed out mom, but will that change as kids being kids becomes kids being destructive. (kids playing wildly) – [John] Kelly O’dougherty’s compassion has now turned to concern as she searches for our mom. – Oh they’re just playing, it’s fine, yeah. It’s fine they’re just playing. – Oh it is. Oh okay. That’s okay. No worries. It’s okay. Thank you. They’re just being kids (chuckles). – My mom’s not paying attention. – Yeah, yeah. – We asked her if she loved us but said, “shhh, I’m on the phone, we’re having a vacation.” After Kelly finishes paying she still her two-cents left over for our mom. – Oh really, oh it’s my fault? – Hi, I’m John Quiñones. – Oh wow, they got you (laughter).
– Oh my God (laughter) – Oh my God. – (laughter) How are you? – (laughter) I’m ready to cry. – Yeah you were that upset? – I tried to hug her when I was leaving ’cause I felt so sorry for the little girl. – And you told the mother– – She was the one acting out. More than anything I felt like they needed to be saved from her not her being saved from them. – Give it. – Give it to me (scream). – [John] Right away, this woman is shocked by what she’s seeing. – Perfect. – [John] She turns to look for our mom. – Kids, you guys having fun? – Yeah– – Ok Good. – It’s better than the park. – [John] But says nothing as she walks by. – You wanna I see it? – No, no sweetie, let me finish shopping. – [Child] What do you think? I feel like this is a scary movies? Have you guys seen this scary movie? – [John] It’s not a scary movie, it’s television, What Would You Do? (Bleep) no way John. – Wow, I (bleep) knew it (laughter). – The look on your face was priceless really, you were stunned. – ‘Cause what kind of mother lets their kids do that? – We want to see how people should react and what advice you have for them. – Definitely discipline your kids, no kid should act like that, especially in public. – [John] Throughout the day Ava and Aiden run the entire naughty behavior playbook. Playing tug of war, hide and seek, ghost, even throwing things into occupied dressing rooms. – Thank you. – [John] But no one reacts to our disruptive duo like Cindy Rafalowitz. – I love this white dress so much, do you like it? – Ok, I’m gonna draw on it. My markers. It needs a beautiful pattern. – [John] First Cindy looks for help. And then she heads into a dressing room. While other shoppers react to Ava and Aiden redecorating that dress. – Mommy.
– I want a disguise. Leave me alone right now, I’m busy, this is my weekend too. – What? – Oh, it’s not mine. – Oh, kids’ll be kids. – No. – [John] Back in that dressing room Cindy overhears what’s happening and can’t hold back any longer. – Are you serious right now? – Well, I mean it’s Saturday, I’m not gonna sit here and take care of them all day. – You are their mother, you are their mother. No one else here is supposed to take care of your children. – They’re writing on clothes that belong to the store.
– They are writing on clothes. – But it’s just kids being kids. – They are writing on other people’s property, are you kidding me right now, what world do you live in? – Well I didn’t give them permission to to this. – Because you’re not paying attention to them. That’s why. They’re dying for your attention. 5 times they said they were bored and you told them to leave you alone. – Well no, I agree, but I– – And here’s another one. – I just think everyone should mind their own business, you really should mind your own business. – Mind my own business? – Where’s the manager here? You’re gonna want the whole neighborhood to chip in and look for your kids, right? But now you’re telling us to mind our own business? Be a mother, be a parent or don’t have children. – [Jonn] Okay, we’ll break it, we’ll break it.
– Ok, I agree, but I need to take a day off too. – Parent’s don’t get a day off. Parent’s don’t get a day off, are you kidding me right now? – Do you have kids? – My mother had six kids, she never had a day off in her life. – Oh, wow.
– You should be responsible – Ma’am? – Oh my God. – Hi.
– I’ve never seen such a thing– – Oh my God. – You felt compelled to to say something. – There’s just parents that you see like this all the time and it’s really disgusting and no one ever says anything and I’m just not the type of person to sit back.
