In some of the strangest parenting news we'll hear all day, a New York City father was deemed inept for refusing to give in to his 5-year-old's demands for McDonald's.
The child threw a tantrum and the dad delivered an ultimatum: Choose another, healthier place to eat or don't eat at all. You can guess what the 5-year old chose, can't you.
What is it with parents these days wanting to feed their kids less junky food? Sheesh! Just give in to the siren song of the Happy Meal, Dad!
David E. Schorr put his foot down on October 30th and refused to take his son to McDonald's "because his son had been eating too much junk food."
Schorr, after being labeled "inept," calls himself "not a very strict father who rarely refuses his child McDonald's." And the one time he sticks to his guns this happens.
