Video: Mateo wants a cupcake; Good example of bad parenting

Mateo wants a cupcake

3-year-old Mateo doesn’t see why he can’t have a cupcake for dinner, especially since he ate his lunch. Mateo’s mother, Linda Beltran — whom Mateo calls “Linda” or “honey”, threatens to spank the boy simply because he won’t listen to her.

“Linda, honey, just listen to me,” says little Mateo, who makes the argument that he would get his cupcake if he were at his grandma’s house. Beltran says her son calls her Linda when he’s “very serious” and he wants to make sure she’s listening to him. :blink:

This is a classic example of a single mother who substitutes her son for her boyfriend.

This is not cute behavior. It is very poor parenting and will lead to problems later on.

Watch the video after the break.

    i’ve seen way worse examples of bad parenting than a little boy emphatically stating a case for a cupcake. She threatened to woop him because she couldn’t best him lol. And calling her by her first name when he’s really serious is funny to me. It’s better then him calling his mom out of her name and falling out like you normally see. He’s already showing he knows he doesn’t have to resort to that to state his case

    HE is cute and smart and I’m mad she said she was going to beat him because he caught her out there. Mine just turned 4 and he speaks like a grown a$$ man. When the debate, deal making, or extra conversation gets too much or on my nerves I turn to him and say “Time Jr. I said No and if you keep it up you’ll never have ice cream again!”

    Can’t listen to a thing here at work, but he REALLY looks like he is making a great case for the cupcake he wants…lol. I wouldn’t call that bad parenting either…he could definitely be acting a helluva lot worse!

    he is very smart and he didnt use any curse words…I cant see the bad parenting part…parents are different. As long as the child grows up to be a good person to themselves and society, I would say the parents did their job. I definitely dont see a “thug” in this kid.

    Oh and Linda doesnt listen LMAO

    Its actually kinda funny. Its really not a big deal people. I think she posted it for a funny reaction not to question her parenting. People of this generation are WAY to judgemental. SHEESH!

    As a parent of two 18 year old boys, I feel that the bad parenting part is all of the discussion. His every want will become a discussion and you don’t want to start explaining why he can’t do all of the crazy things a pre-teen and teen boy wants to do. It’s gets way deeper than having a cupcake, and you’ll be glad that you instilled “no means no” at an early age.

    He’s very smart for a three year old though…

    Smokie says:

    He is smart, and she can identify topics that are up for discussion. There are times when she can say “convince me that you should be able to blah blah blah” (I would tell my son to create PPTs which made him very computer literate), but the mom has to control the situation and occasion from DAY ONE. If it’s not up for discussion, “This is not up for discussion. No.” That little boy was running it. It IS really cute to watch though, since it’s someone else’s kid/problem.

    He is the perfect example of why I like 3 year olds.

    Two year olds throw tantrums…
    Three year olds want to explain why they feel the way they do!

    I don’t have to agree with them… but at least I know where they stand. :)

    I don’t have kids but I taught long enough to know little children know when to put on. That little boy knew he was being filmed so he was showing out and being mannish. I doubt when the funk hits the fan and Linda gets trill that he is saying, “Linda you are not listening to me”. I just think in this day and age of social media everything gets taken way out of context, this is just one moment.

    I saw this on the news yesterday morning. He calls her Linda because the family recently went to an amusement park and came across a lost child that didn’t know his parents’ names. The child just knew his parents as “mom” and “dad”. After the family experienced that, they started teaching Mateo their names. Apparently it stuck with him! LOL

  32. 32

    His mom isn’t single, she’s married. I think it’s awesome that a child can communicate and validate reason. I allo my children to do the same thing. Sometimes they win sometimes they lose. This is not bad parenting, AT ALL

  33. 33

    Bad parenting is the kid in the diaper cussing and flipping the finger. THAT is bad parenting.

    She’s not a single mother. He has both parents. His father’s name is Kenneth. The Mom stated: “For the most part we are still Mommy and Daddy, but when he is serious and wants to make sure we are paying attention, we quickly become Linda and Kenneth.” in her interview on elite daily.

    Its just an example of a smart boy with an equally smart mouth…that’s also adorable. LOL!

    Obviously this little boys’ behaviour is a reflection of his father.
    Thats probaby exactly how his dad talks to his mom, Linda. And he inturn is behaving after what he sees. Parents need to set the example. But make sure you know which one you’re setting.
