Do you like this story?
Folks, listing your kid on Kijiji is not funny or clever. It's a great way to get the cops and child protective services at your door. Saying "I was only kidding" will not make them go away. They will investigate regardless, and even if you get off without charges or a social worker visiting you regularly, you really don't want the hassle.
Having said that, and having flagged this ad so Kijiji admin can remove it and perhaps contact the authorities, I bring you an ad a wishes-to-be-anonymous Tweeter noted on Twitter, purporting to list a four-year-old Alberta boy.
(In another indication that this person does not wish to be a parent, s/he is seeking a nanny in another ad:
I am seeking a live in nanny. I have 3 boys ages 4,10 and 14. Duties include light house cleaning and meal prep and must have own vehicle as my 4 year old needs to be picked up from school. I will pay $800/month free room and board. Please contact me if interested.)
4 yr old who doesn't like hearing NO
Address Vegreville, AB T9C 1S6, Canada
My 4 year old doesn't like to hear NO and is what some call a liquid eater so when I said no more juice I get a temper tantrum..so my end result was telling him I was gonna sell him on kijiji so that some who has list of juice would buy him..he gave me his best sad face and said you can sell me now
