MILWAUKEE (WITI) — An adorable three-year-old girl was caught red-handed eating a doughnut, but that didn’t stop her from telling her mother a story!

The little girl apparently ate the sweet treat, even though she was told to wait until after lunch. After being caught, the girl came up with quite the story in an effort to explain why she was hiding half a doughnut — and it was all caught on video.

    This is so cute! Mom let her daughter explain why she had the donut then mom explained why she couldn’t have sweets anymore that day.

    This is not cute. She is being brought up the wrong way. She is a liar and she seems to have had a lot of practice at it. Something else in my opinion is going on here like a lack of discipline. Sorry to say she will be heading down the wrong road if something does not change. (PARENTING)\

      Agreed. The message here is: “It’s ok to lie if you’re cute about it and mommy can post a video and get lots of attention.”

      Actually if you knew anything about the development of a 3 year old. She is telling stories that in her 3 year old mind that are real to her. At this age, wishes and imagination often get in the way of what is real. Sometimes a 3 year old will start to tell a story, and you will hear it get out of hand as she adds bits and pieces to fit the ideas in her head. Lies at this age might succeed, but 3 year olds are generally poor liars because they fail to lie appropriately. They do not consider that their listener will actually think about either the statement or their intention. As a result, they tend to lie at the wrong time or place, or neglect to think about other important facts, such as covering their tracks to conceal the deception. if you can step back and view lying as a part of a child’s emotional and intellectual development, you will find that telling lies doesn’t condemn your child to a life of betrayal or serious behavior problems. In fact, recent research has shown that lying plays a positive role in normal development. Essential human skills — independence, perspective taking, and emotional control — are the same skills that enable children to lie.
      Please think before you post something so horrible about a 3 year old little person or there parent. In fact this video is “cute” This little girl is do what a 3 year old should be doing.

      Child development 101: the earlier in life your child begins to lie, the more creative and better their problem solving skills will be later in life. If you yell at the child for lying at that age, you encourage stupidity and a lack creativity that will forever haunt your child. Your choice; encourage creativity and make a cute video or be a tootal dick and yell at your kid and scare them for life. I think I know where you stand sir.

      do you think she learned a lesson, clown? or is she being rewarded for lying? it’s unfortunate that people like you are legally allowed to breed.
