It’s important to take parenting seriously, especially when it comes to teaching children the right from wrong. In this case, lessons in teaching your little ones to not step behind the wheel after an alcoholic beverage can’t start soon enough.

When one father found his two-year-old daughter beached on a mound of snow, having been driving around in her little pink plastic car while grasping her sippy cup, he decided this was the best time for drink driving lessons to commence.

“Keep your hands where I can see them!” the Chicago dad jokes, as if to impersonate an angry traffic officer. “Ma’am what’s the problem?” The innocent-looking young girl looks bemused as she glares at her dad, with her lips sealed.

In the 45-second long clip, her dad goes on to ask his daughter “what’s in the bottle?” and “drop the cup!” while pretending to radio back to base: “Yeah, she’s resistant. I’ve had this one before, she’s caught drink driving!”

Unimpressed and slightly bewildered, the little girl remains perfectly silent. It’s easy to see why.  Check out the video below.
