ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Her kids call her the “meanest mom in the world.” Reality TV star Jamie Primak Sullivan recently posted on social media that she took her three children—ages five, seven, and eight—to Dairy Queen. When the children were served, they failed to say “thank you” and ran outside to eat. She calmly counted to 10, walked up to her kids, grabbed the desserts, and tossed them into the trash. As her children screamed, Jamie explained they were old enough to exercise manners and basic human decency.

Family therapist Dr. Rachel Glik visits Fox 2 News in the Morning to discuss the parenting lessons at play in this situation.
