The 20-second video starts off with two children squirming inside a large, white t-shirt. And after a few seconds, viewers hear a woman saying, “Every time you argue, this is what you are going to do.”
Then, she adds,”I’m going to make y’all hold hands now. And y’all are going to slow dance.”
As the song continues, both children sway inside the shirt with miserable looks plastered across their faces. It’s hilarious, but also effective.
Disciplining children is a hard task for most parents, and the proper way of doing so has long been a subject of debate. Writing for Focus on the Family, a popular Christian website that provides resources for healthy family dynamics, author Dr. Kevin Leman offers up his suggestions to do so in an effective way.
In the article titled Simple Strategies for Effective Discipline, the psychologist and bestselling author notes that it’s important to let reality be the teacher and calls on parents to learn how to respond to their children effectively instead of simply reacting to the bad behavior.
The mother featured in the viral video above seems to have mastered this principle.
