29. I don't know if it's harmful to the kid.
In looking at the video again, apparently both parents were in the store. This is part of the kid's socialization, Dad passing on his values and mores to the kid. Mom not objecting, so showing support.

It's probably the same values that were taught to Dad a few decades ago.

It's not how you, me, or the shopkeeper would train a 2-year-old, but we're not in that family's shoes. As the sheriff said, no laws were broken.
