Boy Shreds Parents' Money

4-Year-Old Shreds His Parents' Entire Life Savings

Every child has bad habits, but one boy's weird tendency has cost his parents $5,000. After discovering cash under his parents' bed, a 4-year-old in China ripped up all the money. The boy had a habit of tearing apart old books, but his parents never saw it as a problem. One afternoon, the mother left him in her bedroom and assumed he was ripping pages of a book he found. An hour later, she found him sitting among the shredded money.

To see how the parents reacted when they found their son — and what happened to the money — read the full story on The Stir.

well maybe they should have tried to curb his tearing of things then that wouldn't have happened. To me books are just as valuable as money so I used to take the book away as soon as my son tried to tear it then get him to sit on the thinking chair while I told him why he shouldn't tear it.
