A dad mocking his daughter’s temper tantrum has become a viral video on YouTube, with more than 826,000 views at the time of publication.
“The video was posted to YouTube by Kathy Sterner, who writes:
“My 6 year old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down. I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood.
“For the record, she’s not typically a beast child – she’s actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day.”
The article suggests that the dad was just trying to lighten the mood but you can hear the little girl yelling from the bedroom stop laughing. So my question is does the dad mocking the tantrum help the situation or just lengthen the tantrum? Does it degrade the child (you can’t see her) or is it just a way for parents to release on a frustrating situation without yelling at a kid? Is it all in good fun or mean spirited?
