Ashlynn Hobbs is normally a very sweet 2-year-old, her parents insist. But in this video, the Texas tot is a cautionary tale of the power technology has over children today.

Dad Daniel Brooks says that he and his girlfriend use an iPad with Ashlynn for educational purposes, but that “the only problem is [Ashlynn] doesn’t want to put it down.” That results in moments like the one in this video: Ashlynn’s temper tantrum and cries of “I want my iPad!” will make any parent think twice about letting their child get started on a new tech toy.

Just wait until she has a Twitter account.
