Mom destroys her kids' Apple iPhone 5c by blasting it with a gun and crushing it with a sledgehammer



Remember when parents would punish their kids by grounding them, or cutting their allowance? Modern times call for new plays in the parental punishment playbook. For example, one Southern mom was really ticked about a few things that her kids did, and was obviously determined to teach them a lesson. While someone records the whole thing, this mother verbally attacks that online Satan known as social media. "I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children. Their disobedience and their disrespect."

So Annie Oakley takes aim at her kids' Apple iPhone 5c , perched on top of a tree stump. One quick blast from dear sweet-old mom's long gun, and that handset is history. Her kids, understandably, are upset. We can only imagine that their iPhone was the only thing that allowed them to communicate with the civilized world. And now, their mom took that away from them. So the kids flip off their mother on camera. "I refuse to be cursed," she says. "I refused to be disobeyed. I take back my role as your parent." She fires at the iPhone again, and scores another direct hit.

An emasculated male, the guy who has been filming the whole frightening mess, picks up the pieces of what was once a working smartphone and gathers them on the tree stump. And this time, mom's firearm has been replaced by a sledgehammer. Holding it up to the sky as though she was getting it powered with the divine strength of the almighty, she bellows out, "My children's lives are more important to me than any electronic on this earth."

Here we learn about some of the transgressions committed by her offspring. They contacted people that mom doesn't know (no doubt asking to be taken away from this nut house they live in), they got involved in drama that they didn't need to be involved in, and were getting in trouble at school for having their phones out. And she effectively uses her new weapon to smash the iPhone into little pieces. "I'm done," she says as she walks away, either unconcerned or unaware about the ten tons of psychological damage she just inflicted on her kids.

So using a shotgun makes parenting best? She could have other better approach but instead went into 'murica mode when angry. That pew pew pew attitude makes other countries think US is still living the cowboy era.

Teaching children using gun and destroying expensive valuable stuff solves the problem is not the right way to parent. Her intentions are good but the methods are way wrong.

I have to agree with you there. She needs to work on her methods.

I'm done," she says as she walks away, either unconcerned or unaware about the ten tons of psychological damage she just inflicted on her kids. That is such an opinionated statement...they revered that phone more than they respected her or their own roles as respectful children. She didn't hit or beatthem, but she struck deep at which they revered most.....good for her. Spare the rod spoil the child, you shall use it to drive the devil far from him/her. Just somewhat of a religoius quote in the good book for some of you would be squawkers.

The author says "no doubt asking to be taken away from this nut house they live in" and "I'm done," she says as she walks away, either unconcerned or unaware about the ten tons of psychological damage she just inflicted on her kids." This author is totally out of touch with reality. Kids need a swift kick in the butt. Especially ones who flip off their mother.

Back in my younger days around 2000 years ago, we get a spank on our butt or kneel on a pile of salt when you make big stupid mistakes. I think that it's better if she donated the phone to the eco-recycling factories or cell cash sites but hey, different country, different (shooting) parenting techniques.

Wow, what does africa have to do with it? She give it to recycling plants she gets money. No mess, extra cash. Having rough days lately?

Yeah, but shooting things is fun, and you can't put a price on fun!

That's a twist on an old saying parents used to use. When kids wouldn't eat their food, parents would shame them talking about starving people in Africa and that they didn't have food to throw away.

Maybe it was the inclusion of the word butt, but for whatever reason I saw "salt" as a different s-word on my first read through...

Only in 'Murica. As long as they didn't have data they needed on their phones then it's all good...they can buy a cheap smartphone implicitly.

'Muricans use gunpowders instead of brain to solve simple problems. These are the people that gives shame to their country.

Please feel free to never come here. Or, if you leave here, feel free to leave at anytime. TIA. I think the above is a complete imbecile based on the religious non-sense, but based on your idiotic rants about "pew-pew-pew", you clearly have no idea what the reason behind the 2nd amendment is/was.

Well f u if you think you own this website.That's what's wrong with you 'muricans, you defend your gun-toting trigger happy killing spree with 2nd amendment. And if you're butthurt with everything I said, I am dissing 'Muricans like you, not the whole U.S. population. Every country is great, it's the assholes like you that is the problem.
