A little boy walked out of a Pizza Hut restaurant with one of those cups that they give you for pop, and his mom decided to use this to teach him a lesson about stealing.

Obviously, this is something that needs to be taught to every child - STEALING IS WRONG. But he accidentally took the cup, not on purpose. In my humble opinion (and everybody has one), I don't think this was the right time to teach him a lesson. She should've explained that it's considered stealing, and had him bring it back to the restaurant and explain what happened. If he took it on purpose, that would be a GREAT time to teach him a lesson on stealing.

What do you think?
