Mom Lists Kids Toys on eBay

Frustrated Mom Lists Kids' Toys on eBay With Tear-Filled Photo

I've never found a mom that has not become overwhelmed with her lil ones' toys. When a toy train catapults across the room, or a set of markers makes their way onto the sofa, walls, and floor, mama often has to take drastic measures. Some put the toys (as well as the child) in time out. Some immediately move the offending toy into the giveaway pile. Still others find a way to sneak the toys into the trash when unsuspecting tots are asleep.

For one mama, the answer was eBay. After her sons converted their bathtub into a Beyblade arena, and the metal tops had destroyed the vessel, the frustrated mom posted a tear-filled photo of her kids holding their toys on the auction site, and offered up the items to the highest bidder. The action may be extreme, but the sentiments are shared by many parents. Have your tykes' toys ever driven you to the edge?

uh.. lol, this isn't any sort of punishment. This is a way to torture the kids a bit emotionally, and to post it on the internet so she can vent her frustration and in her mind, gather some sympathy, as well as money. Im not sure why anyone would think this would help in ANY way. I'm glad it went the other way and she isn't getting money OR sympathy. This is a pathetic and horrible way to react to this situation. Taking the kids toys away and teaching them about how they SHOULD have been playing with them, making them do chores around the house, forfeiting money towards the tub, etc, those would be things she could do to teach them the consequences. Forcing them to bag up their toys, pose for a picture, and then tell them shes posting it on the internet is nothing but emotional jabs and shame. Those boys are VERY young. Pathetic.

Too bad about the tub, but this picture of the crying son makes me so sad. Kids make mistakes, why post them on Ebay?
