What kind of psychotic piece of **** would think it's funny to throw something in their infant's face?

I agree. It’s disrespectful. Sort of funny, but I wouldn’t do that to my baby.

The fake gift
“I ate all your candy “
Kid’s crying at the dentist or getting shots
Having them (as babies) eat spicy/sour/etc
Etc.


Ummm...I guess I will have to add throwing cheese in their kid’s faces, laughing their butts off and posting that on line.

Sigh.

Parents, just stop.
Yep. I agree 100%.

Kids can be really funny. Doing stuff to kids is not funny. Posting it to social media is just attention seeking by the parents, but for what purpose? I can't even guess.

I've seen a couple of those videos - the one thing I noticed is that they always stopped right after that first second of shock by the baby. I guess it's not funny after that, when your baby starts crying because they can't process what just happened, and if they could, they wouldn't be able to understand their caregiver throwing something (regardless of what it is) in their face

I used to throw spaghetti at them instead. it is cheaper and sticks better. Plus it is actually food, so you or the dog cna still eat it after you throw it at your kids.

This is a joke? Is someone laughing? Someone needs to list all the participants by age and ask why there is no adult present.

Well I have yet to meet a 1 year old who "eats" a whole cake by them selves. We got my son a smash cake for my son's 1st birthday. He hadn't had processed sugar at all and even minimal fruit and no fruit juice. So the look on his face was confused, semi happy...he didnt "get it". But it I took photos and they are precious memories. I have also video taped different parts of birthday celebrations. I have put different photos and videos on facebook over the years but it is on private (totally locked down) so I have no plans for them to go viral.

I think, bottom line, in tuned parents can make decisions what is funny/cute and what is just mean that makes us laugh. If its funny cute and goes viral, I don't really care. But humiliation, confusion, mean spirited stunts for internet fame, a child in pain or any distress...its not funny...as someone stated above, its a bully move.

Over all though, I don't think it is good parenting to try to turn your child into a viral video for kicks. That will be around forever...and its just mean.
