Parents gave 5-year-old daughter a luxury SUV to go to school
(ORDO NEWS) — Malaysian social media is buzzing with the story of a wealthy young couple who recently bought a Mercedes SUV as a gift for their 5-year-old daughter to motivate her to go to school.
Earlier this month, Malaysian businesswoman Farhana Zahra posted a video on TikTok asking her daughter Fatima what she wanted for her birthday, to which the girl replied that she wanted either a green Mercedes G Wagon or a BMW.
In the same video, Farhana makes the girl promise that she will go to school if she gets what she wants, and then they seal the deal with a handshake.
Apparently, Farhana and her husband were having trouble convincing Fatima to go to school because she was not yet five, and they took the opportunity to convince her. Just like our parents used to do…
In another TikTok video posted on April 10, Fatima is seen blindfolded being guided by her parents to her surprise birthday present, which turns out to be exactly what she asked for, a greenish G station wagon in a transparent gift box.
In the captions, the girl’s mother wrote that she was so excited about the car that she couldn’t stop holding the keys.
In the 21-second video, Farhana Zahra explained that she and her husband decided to give Fatima exactly what she wanted to motivate her to go to school and fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor.
The car is basically meant to be the driving force behind her ambitions.
Reaction to the TikTok videos has been mixed, with some congratulating Fatima and telling her how lucky she is, while others have criticized parents for pampering the little girl with gifts she can’t even use or understand.
