4-Year-Old Quickly Shuts Down Boys Who Tell Her She's on 'Naughty List'

A quick-thinking four-year-old had an excellent comeback when she found herself in an argument with a group of boys at a Los Angeles park recently.

Footage filmed by Jonathan Fisher shows his daughter Adaya holding her own against one of the kids in the group, who can be heard off-camera telling her that she is going to be “on the naughty list until next Christmas.”

“I don’t even celebrate Christmas,” Adaya retorts without missing a beat. “I celebrate Hanukkah.”

Fisher told Storyful that he had taken Adaya and her two-year-old sister Lehava to the park, and that the group of boys were “playing rough” near them, prompting Adaya to ask them to play elsewhere.

“The boys continued their antics and it escalated into an argument between the kids,” he said. “The clip shows Adaya defending herself and her sister against the boys.” Credit: Jonathan Fisher via Storyful
