Why Grandparents Are the Worst Influences

Video Hilariously Explains Why Grandparents Can't Be Trusted With Our Kids

When Bryar starts a fruit loop food fight and pop pop finishes it! Grand babies 👶🏼 are the greatest joy. Life is short! Have fun! It all washes off 😊

There are plenty of things grandparents do that make parenting 10 times harder (read: making you look like the bad guy, never asking permission to do certain things with your kids, and spoiling them to death), but one hilarious video just proved why grandma and grandpa totally can't be trusted with your kids.

In a video posted to Facebook, Andrea Burdette Acton — or "Maw Maw" — shows her grandson Bryar playing on the floor with what looks like half a box of loose Froot Loops during a visit to her house. Rather than let him play and be a kid for a minute then encourage him to clean up his mess (as mom would likely do), his grandfather comes in and proceeds to dump the entire rest of the box, sugary neon crumbs and all, on top of the little one's head.

Despite our aforementioned examples of why grandparents are the worst, however, we're having a hard time being the least bit mad at these grandparents' little bit of fun after reading Acton's video caption: "When Bryar starts a Froot Loop food fight and Pop Pop finishes it! Grand babies are the greatest joy. Life is short! Have fun! It all washes off." (True, but good luck to Bryar's parents when he decides to raid the pantry for cereal once he gets back home!)
