She posted photos of her son standing in front of a cartoon image projected on the wall and wrote,
“After breaking 2 TVs in one year , I bought projector. Fool me once , shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me 😂😂🤣😭😭”

It makes them very careful and responsible.
For someone like me, I will buy the TV but he will pay back even if it takes me 18 years to keep deducting his money.”
