A mother has revealed how she called the police on her cheeky three-year-old son for misbehaving after he ran away from home.
Mother Sandy Gribble, from New Zealand’s Auckland, said she decided to send her toddler son Lachie to his bedroom for being naughty.
But when she returned to his room to check up on him, the horrified mother realised he was missing after he climbed out of the window.
When little Lachie ran away from home, his horrified mother found him down the street. She wanted to teach him a lesson, so she called her local police station for help
‘Our lovely firstborn woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning and decided to test every. single. boundary known to mankind,’ the mother said on Facebook.
‘Punishment was no swimming lesson and time out to reset himself. Before you go ahead and judge me as you’ll be thinking that’s a bit harsh he’s only three.
‘Yes he is only three, but the kid is gifted, he’s an out of the box character and he can’t be underestimated. Ever.’
When the mother noticed her toddler had escaped, she raced out of the home in just a shirt and underwear.
‘Running down the road (can’t believe I can actually run), the sheer relief that he is unhurt and not been mowed down by a car,’ she said.
‘Not the walk of shame I’d ever imagine doing in my life cause I just realise only wearing my t-shirt and underwear.’
When she found her little boy, he started screaming at his mother as their nearby neighbours watched on.
Wanting to teach her son a lesson, she called her local police station for help in an effort to prevent her child from running away from home again. A police officer at the scene taught little Lachie about the dangers of running away from home
The adorable boy was daughter about road safety when his family paid a visit to the station
‘Naturally he’s still peeved off at the whole situation so starts to berating me with screams and toddler obscenities: “YOU POO MUM YOU GIANT POO I’M NOT YOUR FRIEEEEEEND ANYMORE”,’ she said.
‘Awesome thanks kid, now all the neighbors have come out to view the s*** show and I love it how you have kept the performance up while everyone judges me for being the worst mum ever.’
Wanting to teach her son a lesson, she called her local police station for help in an effort to prevent her child from running away from home again.
‘I called the police station. I spoke to Lisa, who laughed and told me it was quiet and to bring him in,’ she said.
And so the family paid a visit to the station where police officers explained to little Lachie about road safety and why he should never run away again.
‘After all this, he bloody got it! It has actually sunk into his 1216 day old brain that roads are not built for toddlers and half naked mum and that he should have listened,’ the mother added.
She said she will be installing locks to her son’s bedroom window as advised by police.
