Father Of The Year 2013

Most of the parents we feature would have just beat the child or duct taped him in.. kudos to this creative father.

  1. This is the type of dad I like- resourceful, wise, and respectful while disciplining his child. Good show!

  3. Would have been funnier if the father received a ticket for not having the kid buckled while driving.

  5. Excellent handling all the way around – son found out buckling up is important, and the sucker and sticker made the policeman a friend, not an enemy. Very good!

  7. Kudos

  9. I wish I had kids so I could threaten them for months and receive an award afterwards.

  11. Sorry, I don’t think its good to teach kids to fear police at such a young age. Threatening to call the police only makes them scared. What happens if they get lost and see a cop? They’re not likely to talk to them.

  13. I actually applaud this dad. I think if more parents did stuff like this, maybe just maybe, we’d have less little assholes running around. My son stole money from a family member, about 3 years ago and my parents did the same thing to him. Took him to their local station, made him tell the officer what he did. The officer locked him in a cell for about 10 minutes and that was enough to knock some sense in to him.
    Joe Anderson, it doesn’t sound like the cop scared him, especially since he was “rewarded” with a lollipop and sticker after. I think most cops know how to handle little kids.

  15. Love this!

  17. While this story is a little different, in that he was trying to teach his kid a lesson about safety.
    In general I do not agree with parents who use the police to discipline their children who are out of control because they didn’t teach them to act right in the first place.

  19. And there in lies the problem with most of the kids today, they don’t fear the police, their parents, teachers..the list goes on. I for one think that a little bit of fear goes a long way, and setting the example that if you do something wrong you get into trouble is great.

    Growing up in the 60’s it was the fear of corporal punishment, and getting spanked from our parents that kept a lot of us out of trouble.

  21. At four he should still be in a car seat. How’d he get a car seat unbuckled in a car seat?

    Oh and yeah, making them afraid of cops… Not a good idea.

  23. Blarney depending on the size (height or weight) of the kid the could just be in a booster seat-type. I used to watch a set of twins (family friends kids) and they sat in those type at age 3 (safety guidelines followed). They knew how to buckle and unbuckle them at will, then again, they could undo normal car seats too.

    Also they child won’t be afraid of cops, they had a talk with them, and was given candy and a sticker. I don’t know any four year old who associates big, bad, scary things with candy-giving people who keep them safe.

  25. there is no state where a 4 year old should be out of a full fucking childs car seat and NOT in a booster. and you are 100% full of retard shit if you knew a family with 3 year olds that could unbuckle a childs car seat that was made in the last 15 years.

  26. jj on January 11th, 2013
  27. My kid could unto her car seat at 4, and was in a boast just before she hit 5. She met the height and weight requirements. Some kids are just that smart. They watch you buckle them in day in and out, you think they are not going to figure out that if they hit the little red button they can get free?
    Also I doubt this child is traumatized. He got a lollipop and a sticker. The dad got his child to understand to stay in his safety seat. Congrats dad.

  29. Thank you 4everfallen, One of the 3 year olds was as tall as a normal 5 year old the other were almost as big. There were in booster seat types because of their height and weight and it was approved by their doctors. Kids grow at different rates.

  30. me on January 11th, 2013
  31. Creative dad. Oh, and @ JJ – you are an idiot. If the child is too big for a child car seat, but too small for the regular seatbelt, you MUST put them in a booster seat. I am a parent myself, and that is the law in many states. Most seat guidelines as well as laws go by the child’s SIZE and WEIGHT, and NOT age.

  33. thats really funny,if you have to do it you have to do it.

  34. tracy on January 13th, 2013
  35. It isn’t about making them fear the police. The kid got a lollipop and a sticker out of it to show that the cops are their friends. They SHOULD be afraid of going to jail though. What lands kids in jail? Not doing what they are supposed to be doing. People should fear consequences from a young age.

  36. Dr. Zoidberg on January 14th, 2013
  37. Obviously this child is not ready to be in a booster. They make 5 point harnesses up well past the average 4 year old. The Britax Frontier harnesses to 85lbs and I highly doubt a 4 year old weighs 85lbs. Sigh.
