Toddler has brutally honest answer to mom’s question about kindness: ‘Cutest villain origin story ever’

Out of the mouths of babes… One little girl caught her mother off guard with her brutal honesty. 

TikTok mom Rachael is a mother of two. Her toddler daughter Maxine is at the age where her personality is really shining through.

One day, Rachael was doing a call-and-response chat with Maxine to boost the girl’s self-esteem.

But when Rachael asked Maxine if she was “kind,” things got unexpectedly real in the funniest way.


Well, that took a turn. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂 #fyp #toddlersoftiktok

Rachael asked her daughter affirming questions as a way to get the little one hyped. But it didn’t play out the way Rachael had anticipated. 

Rachael: Are you smart? 

Maxine: Yeah!

Rachael: Are you strong? 

Maxine: Yeah!

Rachael: Are you brave?

Maxine: Yeah!

Rachael: Are you pretty?

Maxine: Yeah!

Rachael: Are you kind? 

The little girl paused for a moment, looking pensive. She thought about the question, scratched her arm and finally gave an answer. 

Maxine: … Not really. 

“Well, that took a turn,” the mom wrote in the caption
