A Florida mother has been praised for showing her ungrateful daughter a lesson after the little girl threw her pencil case in the garbage.
Haley Hassell posted a ‘long mom rant’ on Facebook, clarifying that her six-year-old little girl Presleigh had asked for the well known ‘LOL pencil box’ but changed her mind, tossing it in the trash. The single mom chose to teach Presleigh a tough-love lesson,’giving the thing to a child who might really value it – and making Presleigh use a less-than stylish plastic bag for her pencils instead.

🛑WARNING LONG MOM RANT POST!!! 🛑
Presleigh learned a tough love lesson today… I went to 3 different stores to get that LOL pencil box you see in the trash there. When I surprised her with it this afternoon (just knowing she would be ecstatic) she stared at it and threw it in the trash and slammed the bedroom door. She yelled “that’s stupid, everyone in my class has that..I don’t want it anymore!” 🛑🤯🤔..WHHHHAT STOP COME AGAIN? OK So by this time there was Probably smoke coming out of my ears and I’m trying real hard not to completely lose it on this kid that I have worked so hard to completely take care of financially on my own & make sure she always gets what she needs and then some.
BUT I thought I had always taught her to be grateful & know how lucky she was but apparently sis needed a small wake up call!! SO before completely going Madea mad on my child I check myself and say, “okay that’s fine, let me go get the one you’re going to use”…came back with her new pencil box, which is the ziploc bag. She lost her mind! Suddenly the LOL Box she just trashed was good enough and the ziploc bag was horrible…but it’s too late for all that. I told her to get the LOL out of the trash and we would be finding a child to give it to tomorrow..one whose mommy and daddies don’t have money for any school supplies or someone who may not even have a mommy or daddy. I explained to her she’s not entitled to anything special and she is taking for granted how lucky she is… So for now she will be using a ziploc bag & will personally be delivering the nice box to a child that could benefit from it. Maybe I over react sometimes but I would’ve done anything to have all the things she does as a child. I truly believe Changing your perception & just being grateful can turn around any situation in life.🙏🏻 #UngratefulnessDONTflyOverHere
