Mortified mum shocked to find six-year-old has stuck sex toy to wall to use as 'punching bag'

A mum has opened up about the 'most embarrassing moment' she's had as a parent after her son used her sex toy for boxing practice. Catch the video here:
However, Lauren Barden's six-year-old son, Leo Roy, got a lot more than he bargained for when he went hunting underneath his mum's bed.
Leo didn't come up trumps with any candy or Match-Attax cards when he looked under his mum's bed, instead he found an eight-inch suction dildo.
Nevertheless, the six-year-old's plan to have fun wasn't thwarted, as he 'innocent[ly]' stuck it to the wall and decided to use it for a bit of boxing practice.
Lauren recalls scrolling TikTok when she looked up to realise what her son was doing.
"I was so embarrassed and my jaw just dropped. He was ducking and everything. I was in shock," Lauren said.
Despite the huge size of it and how it 'looks realistic with veins and everything,' Lauren, 29, explained thankfully, Leo 'hasn't got a clue what it is apart from it looks like a willy'.
"When I stopped recording, I took it off the wall and told him not to touch my things and put it away.
"He was so innocent and asked what it was. I told him it was a funny microphone for TikTok," she said.
The video of Leo stepping into the ring against the £60 dildo has since gone viral online.
It has amassed over a million views on TikTok and Facebook and has left people in absolute stitches.
However, through the hilarity of the situation, some have also noted how naturally talented Leo is as a boxer, with one person even comparing the six-year-old to British professional boxer Tyson Fury a.k.a The Gypsy King.
Lauren feels 'lucky' Leo isn't older, however, she noted 'when he's older he'll probably laugh about it'.
Leo might be in for a bit of a shock when he turns 16 though, as 'someone suggested [Lauren] should show him [the video] on his 16th birthday'.
"You've got to laugh. I've seen the funny side and so does he, and that's what matters," the mum added.
For now, Leo will have to find other, more age appropriate toys to play with as Lauren has found a new hiding spot for her dildo.
Although, clearly it made an impression and a very apt boxing opponent as Lauren said how her son 'keeps asking where it is'.
She reflected: "It's definitely the most embarrassing moment I've had as a parent."
