Mum Forced To Quit Her Job Because Of Her Three-Year-Old Daughter's Behaviour
| Last updated
The mother of a ridiculously naughty toddler has told of how she was forced to quit her job as a result of her daughter's antics.
The show is a deep dive into the inner workings of children and the complex psychology behind them.
Lottie, according to her mother, is a 'danger to herself' because she loves to go climbing on things and sprinting out into the road.
That's going to be a problem, you'd have to think.
She also has the mouth of a sailor, using the 'F' word regularly and flipping the bird at her mam.
Lottie was eventually kicked out of her nursery, meaning that her mum had to stop working in order to spend her days keeping an eye out for her 'daredevil' daughter.
Viewers of the show were seriously taken aback at Lottie's behaviour, but many also praised the patience shown by the nursery staff when dealing with her.
It looks like a tough job, that's for damn sure.
One viewer said: "You are so patient and creative in your approach with the children. Been watching for hints and tips."
However, not everyone was so impressed. In fact, a lot of viewers were outraged at some of the parenting on show.
One angered observer said: "OK, 'you can have the ice cream if you promise me you choose something to eat from the chip shop later' - where do I even start with that?"
That sounds like a great day, to be fair. Ice cream and chips? Who wouldn't be up for that?
Joanne told the nursery staff from the show that Lottie has a fascination with climbing on stuff such as chairs, window ledges, kitchen sinks and even the washing machine.
She said: "I don't get a minute, I need eyes all around her.
"She doesn't care about consequences, you can take her away from the situation, and she'll just go back and do exactly the same,"
Lottie has already had the heave ho from one nursery for her dangerous behaviour.
Her mum continued: "I was getting called to pick Lottie up maybe once, twice, three times a week.
"You think, 'What have I done wrong?' I'm absolutely exhausted with it all."
Child psychologist Laverne Antrobus said: "It seems to be a real struggle to get to what it is that's driving her.
"Lottie enjoys quite a thrill from climbing and exploring in this way, but she also enjoys the reaction that adults give her.
"I guess her sense of danger and understanding of risks is not quite there yet."
Hey, it all had something of a happy ending though, with Lottie learning to enjoy playing with a few boxes of jelly and having a nice time without being a problem.
Maybe there is hope, after all.
