A woman using WIC assistance was short $12, when another customer offered to pay the difference. The cashier said no, and continued shaming the customer. Watch what happens:

"What Would You Do?": Free-Range Parenting -- A concept often described as the opposite of “helicopter” parenting, “free-range” parenting encourages children to function independently, with less parental supervision. If a young boy asks you what the time is, saying he’s been on the boardwalk alone all day and is meeting his mom later, would you simply tell him the time, or ask for details about why he’s alone, try to contact his mom, or maybe even call the police? What would you do? Watch what happens:
