Everyone who says the child is making himself look innocent, why are you saying that? Did I miss something in the video or are you just going off his age and actions? Saying that

is far too presumptuous. No matter how many people acted rebelious at age sixteen, that is saying nothing about this particular child.
As for Ponycarman's theory that we have all done something wrong, parents have to understand that it's ok when their kids make mistakes. Everybody knows that everybody makes mistakes. Your children know when they've made a mistake, you don't have to punish them to make them learn. Now if they assiduously make similar mistakes in a relatively short period of time, some kind of castigation is in order. However, your child not agreeing with you isn't bad/wrong. No matter how much more experience you've had, how much more intelligent you are or how much you know, your child knows things you dont'! Sometimes what you feel is the wrong decision quite possibly could be the right one!
