3 year Olds Desperate Plea for a Cupcake

Have you guys seen this? This little guy is begging and pleading for a cupcake. He is so cute, he really wants one. But it is clear he hasn't been listening to his mom. What do you do when your child is begging for something they aren't allowed to have?

    I tell them no and give them a reason why like cuz not listening or bad behavior. If it continues after i say no 3 times i just hide or lock the item away and ignore them. If a meltdown occurs i put them in their rooms until they calm down

      I have told them to stop asking me over and over after I told them no the first time and if they keep asking then no video games for the rest of the day

        I have to say, this video cracked me up. When I watched it on Facebook lots of people seemed to think the 3 year old was being disrespectful. I am guessing he is being a typical three year old, pushing boundaries and imitating the behaviors of the adults around him.

        As for my kids begging, I appeal to their logic. They are old enough to understand "Mom's budget doesn't allow for that video game" or "You already have 20 pairs of shoes, there's no way I am buying another pair".
