I was just watching some old Empire clips and I just Cookie slapping the shit out of Hakeem. I feel like T'Challa would be the same way, especially if he had a teenage son. Like I could imagine his kid being a disrespect brat and T'Challa just not havin it. How do you think T'Challa would handle a moody teenager???
I think his kid would try that shit one good time. One time for just about every phase. When they’re 2 and decide to throw a tantrum in a store he will cast them a nonchalant look and walk away. Sure the Dora Milaje are nearby but they are out of sight. And sure their father is still keeping an eye on them but they do know that. So to them dad has left forever because they decided to be a brat. That scares them straight immediately. He doesn’t raise his voice he doesn’t lay a hand on them, but they know not to do that shit.
T'Challa’s kid might get one good moment of sass, or they might *try* to sneak out one time and it will be the last time.
Kid thinks they’re grown, fine he’s gonna treat them like a grown up. They’ll find themselves with more responsibility than they can possibly handle.
Wanna sneak out? Well you better be good at it because if you alert the Dora Milaje you’ll be treated as an intruder.
Expect an accompanying lecture about how disappointed he is.
In short, any kid of T'Challa’s can try that dumb shit once, but I promise they won’t be doing it again.
