After coming home with only one shoe and having no idea what happened to the other one, the boy was treated to a new but much cheaper pair of R200 shoes from Woolworths.

Watch the mom’s disciplinary clip below:

High hopes deflated

After the new purchase, the boy expressed his disappointment by sulking on the way back and portraying the same face you would see on a toddler about to throw a tantrum.

There is no denying that there is a vast difference and downgrade from the shoes he had to the ones he just got. The mother hopes that her son has learnt his lesson and becomes more responsible in future:

“He was hoping we would get him the same pair… He almost cried. I hope this is the last time he loses his shoes.”

Netizens gathered in the comments section to discuss the mother’s parenting. Some strongly agreed with her bold move, while others thought that giving the boy grace was the right thing to do.

Here’s what netizens had to say:

@philly thusi suggested that the mother goes for an even cheaper purchase to teach her son a lesson:

“If it were me, I would have gotten him a pair from PEP so that he would learn his lesson.”

@Sah ka Tso agreed with how his mom handled the situation and commented:

“Good, he will learn to look after his stuff.”

@nonkululekonkosi94 shared that she, too, has been buying multiple pairs of school shoes but for a different reason:

“Mine does not lose theirs but rather damage them quickly. That child just does not want shoes.”

@Ntombi pointed out that sometimes the other parents are to blame for the disappearance of uniforms at school:

“My son lost his blazer and tracksuit top. All items were marked, but they were nowhere to be found. Parents have the audacity to keep stuff that’s not their kids’."

A mother, @jiggy_papii, tired of correcting her teenage daughter, said there is a better way to deal with her than taking a phone. In a clip that has gone viral on TikTok, the mother brought out her and removed the girl's door from her room.

After unscrewing it, she moved the door to another location entirely. The strict mom's action reduced the girl's privacy so she could see what she was up to every time without knocking.
