YTT - Would you bet your son he couldn't do backflips every day?

The Parental Bluff

Some dads don't make bets with their sons -
the silly responsible ones -
but some dads, they do,
and some mothers too.
The child "wins" but they too gain tons.

  1. LOL not sure that is worth 100 bucks but I give him full props for being able to do a backflip and the dedication it took to do it every day.

  14. What a great video! Just goes to show you that if you want something bad enough, anything is possible :) I believe I would have requested it to be an actual $100.00 bill and I would have framed it. What a story he has to share for generations to come. Thanks for sharing this with us Rachel.
