, i would, as a parent, only HOPE these parents turned this into a learning experience. maybe show them their reaction and have them pretend that they're watching someone react that way to something they gave them. or, maybe the parents had 2 gifts, one good, one bad and video taped both. i like to think this isn't as awful as it looks.
being a photographer, i KNOW how to make a photo LOOK a certain way...but in reality, nothing looks that way. photos i did the other day make it look like i'm hitting an alcoholic low...in reality, i was there, with my eight year old and dogs, surrounded by toys that i pushed to the end of the couch and with a bright pink lamp i stole for lighting...
there always more to a story.
people gotta learn to laugh more and have faith that others aren't as stupid as we judge them as
