Son With Heroic Willpower Outsmarts Parents' Sticker System

When trained the mind can be a beautiful instrument. Even without the training it's as if some of us are born with a bit more willpower than others. Sometimes that willpower can end up showing itself at a very young age. Especially during those toddler years that are already susceptible to all kinds of tomfoolery. There's something about kids during those years where they just can't be bothered to give a dang. This kid certainly showed off some impressive willpower. They're clearly going places.

Hopefully mom was able to get the situation under control, and is able to impart her hard-earned wisdom upon anyone other parents in her social circle that (somehow) might not know better.

Kids can be very mean. So, it's understandable that this dude went into survival mode and faked an accent just to try to steer clear of being bullied.
