What a brat. Seems someone has, thus far, failed to set appropriate limits. A child should not be permitted to threaten her parents like that. She deserves password protection and an extended timeout from the internet.

That is nothing but funny. I got a good laugh out of this.

We established boundaries and limitations on the usage of all devices in our household, ipad, iphone, wii, ps3, apple tv and any of the macs w/ our son when he was about 8 years old... he has his own password for the macs and knows whats OK and not OK to browse online and is not able to purchase anything w/o our password... of course there are moments when we take these privileges away, but, in general hes a really well behaved kid. i would laugh at the note and think nothing more of it... i would promptly remove privileges for a week though if that was a serious threat...

I raised 3 children. If one of mine had written that note to me, stating they'd make my life a nightmare for ANY reason, their life would have gotten VERY limited. Immediately.
No computer, video games, phones, visits from friends, desserts... (trying to think what I forgot here...)

For those of you who think this is no big deal, I suggest you spend a few days at a mall, to witness the horrendous spoiled-rotten behavior of a LOT of kids towards their parents, at all ages.
This sort of behavior is NOT acceptable. Those parents need to nip this in the bud, before the kid turns 16 and doesn't bother giving them written warnings.

anne west....OMG....you said a mouthful, the parents of today sit in a grocery store (any store) and have a conversation with their child why they should not be acting up or causing a flurry of noise....My children were told ...If you choose to embarass me in PUBLIC count on me leaving your read end right there and walking away. Like i do not even know you....My two daughter's only had to try me out ...ONCE...LESSON LEARNED...

I think the appropriate response has been made - mockery! :) If my kid wrote that I would laugh heartily, tape it to the computer, and password protect EVERYTHING.

my 2 year old loves the computer- to watch thomas the train videos. he knows how to navigate by himself....that note worries me- i feel i should not allow my child on the computer for his 15-20 minutes anymore...

It's not that you need to stop it but use it as a reward. If does as he is told then he gets to watch on the pc.

Because for some parents, this is where they're learning how to parent. On-line, from real parent's reactions to bad behavior.

I'd leave a response note.
Dear ...,
What's new about that? Do anything stupid and it will disappear. Forever. Love, Mom.

But there has to be something seriously out of whack with that parental relationship for that child to imagine that she is the one who has the power to make someone's life a nightmare.

Nicely written. I feel the same. The only difference is the note in and of itself would be enough for a bit of punishment.

I don't believe this note...why put a capital I on IF at the beginning of a sentence. A 7 year old doesn't think about that stuff.

7 is when a child is learning about grammar in school. Its more common for kids that age to overuse capitalization and punctuation than to underuse it at that age.

I knew how to do that when I was four.

Sounds like you're proud of it tóó!?! If so, I think that's sad.

I really didn't find this funny. I'm not against kids voicing their opinion, but threatening a parent is a whole other matter.

Oh Jesus don't get your panties in a twist.

I'm not sure Jesus wore panties, but I'll keep that in mind.

you didn't find it funny because it just isn't. That's a really lame note to considered funny. Let's see some of the more hilarious notes if HP insists on posting them.

From someone else's kid, hilarious. If it was my own, not so much.

I'd put the little brat up for adoption. See how she likes it at the orphanage.
