Parenting 101 is an optional mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Michael De Santa by his son Jimmy.

Overview

Michael receives a call from Jimmy, but as soon as Michael answers, he realizes something is wrong. Jimmy is talking to a stranger who is mad at him for trolling on the internet. Jimmy asks if his mysterious captor is taking him up Banham Canyon in a Landstalker just to punish him.

The player can choose whether to assist Jimmy. If the player refuses this mission, Michael will have to pay $10,000 in ransom money. If the player accepts, Michael follows Jimmy's clues to the Landstalker in which Jimmy is being held, all the while listening into a conversation between Jimmy and the man holding him; that man is a comedy writer who Jimmy has been stalking on Bleeter. Once Michael locates the Landstalker, he damages it to the point that Jimmy's captor jumps from the Landstalker and flees. Michael gets in the Landstalker and drives Jimmy to the Richman Hotel.

Mission objectives

  • Save Jimmy.
  • Trash the kidnapper's car.
  • Go to the car.
  • Take Jimmy home.

Aftermath

Lifeinvader Posts

  • Jimmy De Santa - "I've learned my lesson. No more flaming people online unless it's 100% anonymously."

Trivia

  • While the final mission objective tells the player to drive Jimmy home, the player is directed to drop Jimmy at The Richman Hotel. As this mission becomes available after Meltdown, the reasonable assumption is that the De Santa family is hiding out at The Richman Hotel.
  • If you restart a checkpoint when chasing kidnappers, Michael will drive with untunable black Tailgater, that it was supposed to be owned by Michael, but it isn't.
  • There is a glitch on this mission that makes the Landstalker invisible. First activate the mission then you call or hitch a taxi then skip and then get into the invisible car.
