The little boy, adorably stumbling through the aisles of the department store, found a couple of dog skeleton decorations on a ground shelf. He pointed at one and excitedly yelled "Daddy, puppies!"

"Therapist bill to the moon," wrote one user, tongue in cheek.

"I thought this was going to be elaborate," wrote another, laughing at her own naivete.

"Like you wearing a mask or jumping from behind something. But no, gentle conversation scared him."

Others attempted a more pragmatic point of view.

"It is our job, as parents, to prepare our children for the world," wrote another parent, who found the situation amusing.

"Sometimes it just happens to be fun."

Learning when you are a child sure feels like it happens fast and hard—and for this kid, it's likely that this fast and hard lesson learned him a future spot in a therapists' chair.

But we can't stop laughing nonetheless.
