Mateo, 3 year old, has learned all the tricks to a good debate from watching his parents, especially his mom Linda.
He repeats several times over, "Linda, honey, listen to me."

What a nightmare of a kid, he needs some serious parenting.
He sounds obnoxious, even though I can’t understand a thing he says, except for calling is mom “Linda”.
Flawless argument? Only a liberal would find it flawless.
He is a brat.
He is obviously mimicking his father or some other adult who talks to his mom in this obnoxious way
His mother needs to teach him to respect her.
BOLO to Free Republic circa 2048.
I always said that about my daughter, she’d be a great lawyer, but she’d never get there since she hates reading!
I agree. I don't find what he is doing to be cute. If he is that obstinate at 3, I believe he's on his way to being an enormous burden to both his parents and the taxpayer.
That was my thought, too in viewing this. It made me feel sorry for the mother. The gestures, and the “Linda, Linda....” thing are something he sees all the time from whomever is supposed to be the male influence in the family.
I didn’t get “flawless and reasoned” from any of it. Most of the time I couldn’t understand what the kid was saying, and more than once I thought I detected threats to bring down stuff off the table (as in I’ll pull it down if I don’t get my way).
Really, a wholly unpleasant thing to watch IMO.
Yep. He’s a real charmer and I bet he won’t grow up to be anything but a perp.
How many will he kill or injure on his way to life in prison or a job with the TSA?
Im willing to give the kid a bit of a break considering hes only 3 years old and give him some credit that he at least tried to have a conversation and plead his case instead of throwing a full out screaming, rolling on the floor temper tantrum.
A lot of kids at that age go through a phase of calling their moms and dads by their first names, although she should have corrected him for doing so.
I recall one of my great nieces was out with her dad on a trip to the grocery store, she was about 3 years old, and she was upset that her dad didnt buy her something she wanted and threw a temper tantrum in the store. He dad didnt put up with that store of thing, swatted her on her but and told her that when they got home, shed be put in the naughty corner and have to stay there until she apologized.
After standing in the corner for about 15, minutes, she did say she was sorry for throwing a temper tantrum but then she told her dad: Father, I am a girl and because I am a girl you really should be more sympathetic and compassionate toward me next time.
He couldnt help but laugh (and amazed that at 3, she used the words sympathetic and compassionate). Although he did tell her that he was sympathetic and compassionate and thats why he sent her to the naught corner, because kids who throw temper tantrums grow up to be grownups who throw temper tantrums and good moms and dads dont allow that to happen. ; )
I put my finger (index, LoL) in the air with “Ah-bah-bah-bah!” and that’s the end of it. Like magic.
Now in our house, "Because I said so" worked just fine.
They’re raising a monster. She obviously thinks back-sass is cute, since she’s getting it on video.
My parents would have put with that for all of about three seconds.
Then again, they weren’t trying to urp up everything on youtube.
That kid has a future in court and then behind bars —
