In a now viral video, the parents of a toddler from St. Charles, Missouri had their daughter explain why she manhandled a little boy at preschool.
Kynlee McFetridge used her wrestling moves to put a boy in a headlock, and her mother questioned the 3-year-old about the situation on camera.
McFetridge’s mom asked:
“What happened at school?”
The little girl explained that she “put a headlock down” on her friend, Jack, reports FOX 2.

“I took a headlock down on Jack and took him down.”
When her mom asked “why, what did he say?” the girl said the boy asked her to marry him. McFetridge explained:
“Kids don’t get married. That’s why I put headlock down on him.”
McFetridge’s family told Fox 2 that her father is to blame for his little girl’s roughhousing at school.
As the dad explained, his daughter was physically behind other children her age after surviving a corrective open heart surgery, so he taught her wrestling moves to help her catch up.
As Fox 2 reports, at 5-month-old the girl suffered from a heart disease known as the trilogy of Fallot heart. McFetridge’s dad said:
“That was my whole theory behind wrestling and roughhousing with her because she was behind the other kids. I was trying to make her stronger so she could catch up. In doing so, she got a little rough, I guess.”
Her mom told her in the video:
“Let’s not put headlocks on boys, okay? Let’s not put headlocks on boys.”
McFetridge said she learned her lesson and now knows that “it’s a bad thing” to resolve conflicts with headlocks. However, she told Fox 2:
“Sometimes you just gotta take them down.”
Parents watching the video on Facebook encouraged the McFetridge family to put their daughter in wrestling, so she can headlock all the boys she wants.
