Try not to smile when you’re watching this video! Not everyone will agree with this mother’s actions, but very few will disagree with her rant.
Taking away electronics is a common parental punishment, but this mother decided to take it one step further – and shoot up her children’s iPhones with a rifle.
‘I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children,’ the mom shouts at the beginning of the video, a gun in her hand. ‘Their disobedience and their disrespect.’
She then points the gun and the camera moves to reveal that she’s not about to shoot a pheasant or a bottle, but is aiming straight for an iPhone perched on a tree trunk.
With perfect aim she blows the smartphone to smithereens, as its pieces go flying into the grass.
‘Set it up,’ she orders, as the man behind the camera begins to gather the pieces on the ground.
‘Still recording?’ she asks, ‘Yes ma’m,’ he dutifully replies, showing viewers a cracked iPhone screen.
The mother reveals one of her children has left but then the camera shows two teens, a boy and a girl, are still here – watching as the only outlet they’ve ever known to a social life disappears.
‘I also take back my role as parent to my children,’ she then yells, not quite explaining just what that would entail.
Meanwhile a boy, presumed to be one of her sons, returns to the scene and gives the middle finger to the camera.
‘I refuse to be cursed,’ the mother begins again. ‘I refuse to be disobeyed. I take back my role as your parent.’
‘Get a shot of them,’ she orders, as the camera pans to reveal the three angry children standing with their arms crossed, until one flips a double bird again.
