Paula Papen found her 8-year-old son using her iPad to mess around on eBay, so she did what any parent who doesn't mind scarring their children for life would do: She convinced him he'd accidentally purchased a $50,000 Ford Mustang and there was no way to cancel the sale.

Though she did let the prank wander deep into trauma territory, to her credit, Papen did eventually tell Kenyon the truth. "Trust me,´╗┐ my son is fine, no permanent damage," Papen wrote in response to criticism. "And if there is, we know some really good therapists."
