Can someone explain to me what went so horribly wrong with this current generation of "parents"? They seem to think that lying, cheating, and stealing from their children is de rigueur! It's atrocious! :-(
Instead, why not take the opportunity to COMMUNICATE with your children and TEACH them something about respect for others? Perhaps point out that the "annoying toy" is annoying other people, and talk to them about how they would feel in the others' shoes. Let the kid make the decision to stop being annoying. Empower him as a kid, and raise a good, responsible, thoughtful, respectful human being.
But maybe that's too much to ask. And we wonder why Big Brother is encroaching ever further into our lives....
Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

I always boxed up unused toys. If the children played with them and I was stupid enough to buy something that I found annoying; then tough for myself and other adults in the family. That included 1 of my sons' full drum sets at age 8. He recently sold the set after asking if we minded to an older young adult who is a tad immature and is far from a drummer.
Sometimes we have to live with our own mistakes. Eventually they become someone elses problems.
