3-Year Old Argues with Mother Over Cupcakes, Debates Merits of Spanking

A video of a three-year old arguing with his mother over eating cupcakes for dinner has gone viral.

Mostly because it's cute. But also because it's a bit controversial.

In the following footage, little Mateo pleads with his mom and, at one point, references how a punishment would "burn" his "butt."

He also sticks up for his little brother after his mother threatens them both with "pow-pows" to their rear end.

Are we witnessing an actual discussion over child abuse? Or just some good old fashioned strict parenting when it's called for? Watch below and join in the debate now:

We're sorry not all kid videos can be as simple and adorable as this dancing baby.
