Parenting 101
Game GTA V
For Jimmy De Santa
Location Banham Canyon
Fail Busted
Kill the kidnapper
Reward None
Unlocked by Meltdown

Parenting 101 is an optional mission in Grand Theft Auto V for protagonist Michael De Santa.


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 truck 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 truck and flees. Michael gets in the Landstalker and drives Jimmy to the GWC and Golfing Society.

Mission objectives

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


  • While the final mission objective tells the player to drive Jimmy home, the player is directed to drop Jimmy at the GWC and Golf Society. As this mission becomes available after Meltdown, the reasonable assumption is that the De Santa family is hiding out at the GWC.
