Cash Me Outside…A Mom’s Perspective

Many of you have seen the above video and hashtag #CashMeOutside that has gone viral in one form or another. I currently shared a version on Facebook where a comedian inserted himself into the scenario and pretended he was conversing with this young lady which I admit I found very funny. But after watching numerous clips, reading some comments from strangers and some of the additional videos circulating of this young lady responding to her new found viral fame I started to see this through “Mom eyes”.

This is a video clip of a young girl that was brought on a popular, sensational “Talk Show” by her mother so a fake doctor, the audience and the rest of the world could validate her opinion that their daughter was out of control. Most parents do this on some level; I do it often with my posts about my son on Facebook, he does something funny or strange or even when he misbehaves a bit I post about it looking for validation or confirmation that is normal or for people to laugh at me and my situations with him. Where I feel this mother took a wrong turn is she wasn’t turning to friends, family or even a community of parents online or close to home, she exposed her child’s worst side to the entire world to be consumed for entertainment. And now instead of fixing the problem, a whole new onslaught of issues are arising.

He changes his “hearts one true desire” so often I can’t keep up! Brenda Barrett was “the love of his life” the “one who got away”, yet we were served the same crap for Kate Howard, just a few years ago. And let’s not forget poor, sweet Emily (HURL – not at Emily, but at that pairing), she was “the one great love who makes him want to be a better person”. *insert me sticking my fingers down my throat!
