1. A Florida mother has gone viral after she was praised for teaching her ungrateful daughter a lesson. Hayley Hassel described how her six-year-old Presleigh asked her to buy her a popular ‘LOL’ pencil case. Wanting to surprise her, the single working mother bought the pencil case in the hope that her little one would be ‘ecstatic’ when she saw it. However, things didn’t go as Hayley had expected.
2. Her daughter angrily reacted throwing her new stationery accessory into the trash yelling: ‘That’s stupid, everyone in my class has that…I don’t want it anymore.’ Furious, Hayley used the opportunity to make a point and proceeded to call out her daughter in a Facebook post. ‘By this time there was probably smoke coming out of my ears and I’m trying real hard not to completely lose it on this kid that I have worked so hard to completely take care of financially on my own [and] make sure she always gets what she needs and then some,’ Haley said. ‘But I thought I had always taught her to be grateful [and] know how lucky she was but apparently sis needed a small wake up call, she continued.’ As another option, Hayley presented her daughter with an alternative pencil case: a plastic sandwich bag with the words ‘Presleigh’s pencil bag’ scrawled on it.
3. ‘I explained to her she’s not entitled to anything special and she is taking for granted how lucky she is… I will personally deliver the nice box to a child that could benefit from it’. Reflecting on the incident, Hayley said: ‘Maybe I over react sometimes but I would’ve done anything to have all the things she does as a child. I truly believe changing your perception [and] just being grateful can turn around any situation in life’.
