Girl writes stern letter to parents, takes away story time

Girl Writes Stern Letter To Parents, Takes Away Storytime

One girl's authoritative, yet adorable, letter to her parents is going viral. The note was first posted to Reddit by a friend of the girl's parents, who says the mom found the note from her daughter Aug. 17.

It reads, "Dear Parents, It seems you both are a little overly strict tonight, therefore I do not wish to read with you tonight. But, if you change your attitude I will be glad to. Goodnight. From, Chloe."

OK, how cute is that? There's nothing quite like taking a bedtime story away from parents as a punishment.

We think a blogger for The Stir summed it up best: "This little lady is bold! It's the little things like this that make us laugh, because, let's be honest, they're completely serious." The blogger also took the time to compliment Chloe on her "stellar" grammar and vocabulary. Props, girl.

And the "Good Morning America" anchors think Chloe has a bright future ahead of her. Lara said, "I was just thinking future CEO, without a doubt."

We've learned that kids are often brutally honest when it comes to writing down their true feelings. In February the Daily Mail highlighted several, including a note written by a girl named Joyce who thanked God for giving her a baby brother, "but what I prayed for was a puppy."

And who can get forget the girl who wrote to her dad's boss in June asking for a day off for him? Her father's boss at Google got back to her and gave her father an entire week off in July. TheBlaze confirmed with the company that the letter was, indeed, the real deal.

No one's quite sure how old Chloe is or what her parents did that forced her to take away story time, but hopefully they cleaned up their act. Otherwise, it seems like story time could be a thing of the past.

Are these morons kidding? Cute? Not cute. She's accusing her parents of being parents. What's overly strict in this child's eyes anyway? She's a kid. Her parents should up the ante and say "Fine, make it a week."

This is why kids are a-holes today. Telling the parents "how it's gonna be". And most, cower and say "OK". WTF? Most of them need their asses kicked into next week.

The fact that all these liberal media folks gush over how "cute" this child is tends to give you a pretty overt example of why today's children are so self-absorbed & feel so entitled without having to actually earn something. SAD!

I guess you prefer children that are too afraid of their parents to express their feelings? I feel sorry for your own children, should there be any so unfortunate.

I prefer children who have manners and parents who know how to be parents. No child should be "punishing" an adult, much less their parents. It's rude and inappropriate.

It's fine for kids to express their feelings. My children, who are now grown, responsible adults, could always talk about their feelings, or anything else they had on their minds.. What they could not do is assume my role as a parent. They could not boss adults around or be brats.

Someone in that house needs an attitude adjustment, but it's not the parents.Children need boundaries and guidance, and to learn respect for authority, not a free rein to try and boss everyone around. If you allow children to speak to you in that way, I feel sorry for your kids. I also feel sorry for their teachers, because I'm certain you'd be a teachers worst nightmare type of parent. And just wait until they try talking to the boss like that, if they ever manage to get a job.

I am really suspicious about the terms used: Dear "Parents". Never, at ANY age from grade school up to high school would ANYone I know start a note "Dear PARENTS". It would be Mom and Dad or whatever personal variation of that they used.

Cute? Really? This is a very self-absorbed little girl who apparently is accustomed to calling the shots in that household. How sad! ONE MORE SELF-ABSORBED, SELF-CENTERED 20-something being churned out! Love how our liberal school systems have already convinced her EVERYTHING she does is wonderful & others must be punished if they do not agree with her!

You are far more self-absorbed with your grown up "additude" about this letter. This girl is a 7-year-old who thinks like 7-year-old's do. She has a maturity now that you lack.

Would you be happier if she just held in all her feelings for the next 7 years and then "suddenly and inexplicably" exploded and killed her parents and possibly some teachers or classmates?

I completely disagree with most of the comments here about this child being a little brat. I don't know how old she is, but how about a little credit for her creativity. I think it's much wiser to put pencil to paper to vent her feelings instead of say, throwing a huge temper tantrum. If I were her parents I would be pleased by her note and I would smile too. This doesn't have to do with being a friend to your child instead of being a parent. It has to do with giving your child the ability to express her discontent in a rational, funny way. Much rather this than crying and screaming and stamping her feet. And I have raised to adult sons who are good, kind people, and productive members of society.

At least this child has parents who care about things like story time. What if she had parents that kicked her to the curb, verbally abused her, and then the rest of the family kicks in by molesting the girl. There's nothing funny about this at all.

The child has a bad attitude and requires correction for ever questioning her father and female co-parent.
