How To Dad has hit out hard in his latest video, slamming "lazy" parenting.

Jordan Watson took to YouTube for a "dad rant", arguing that people should stop blaming dentists for children’s rotten teeth, or their children for being "addicted" to sugary drinks and not brushing their teeth.

"It’s your fault," Jordan told parents before asking, "Why the hell are you giving your kids so [many] sugary drinks and sugary food?"

"To be honest, I think it’s just lazy parenting," he continued.

"Yeah there’s going to be a few tantrums when you take this stuff away but it’s for the bloody greater good and it puts you back where you should be in the hierarchy.

"It’s time for us parents to grow some balls, or if you’re a Mum, you know, to get some … extra Mum fierce going on and bloody put these kids back in their place."

Jordan went on to say how he only gives his five-year-old, three-year-old and nine-month-old milk and water, saying that "they don’t need anything else."

"Since when did kids take control over what food and drinks go in their mouth?” he added, "That shouldn’t be the way … You should be doing that as the parent."
