Dad lip syncs his daughter’s temper tantrum with surprising accuracy

Recently, the Sterners’ 6-year-old daughter was having a particularly bad day and she wouldn’t calm down, so they left her in her room to freak out. After awhile, her dad decided not to let her miserable attitude ruin the night for the rest of the family and started having a little fun at his daughter’s expense…

    My family dynamic was somewhat similar to this one. I had an older brother, and my parents often would make fun of my intelligence and laugh at my expense with him. We grew up with him being a physical and emotional tormentor to me because my parents taught him that it was okay. I think it can be easier for parents to relate to their older child, and sometimes this can translate into ridicule of the younger. I grew up promising myself I would move far away some day, and that is exactly what I have done as an adult. I live half across the country and see them twice a year, and my 31 year old brother still lives at home. I don’t know what preceded this video but it does strike me as cruel.

    eh, she’s already in a lousy mood anyway. might as well have some fun instead of making the entire family miserable. she’s gonna have a ball with this when she’s older, and temper tantrums are forgotten incredibly fast after a sound night of sleep.

    The child is having a tantrum because she doesn’t know how to manage her emotions. They can either give her a timeout, but with love, not with cruelty or they can help her talk through them. As the adult, you say, “I know you’re really mad right now…”, but you don’t give in. The child is not trying to control her family. She is trying to deal with her emotions. The parents are bullying her.

    Kristin, They are not mocking her intelligence, they are mocking the fact that she is acting like an entitled little brat who wants to go to McDonald’s and was told no b/c mom had prepared a perfectly fine and nutritous dinner at home so she decided to pitch a fit! If you look at the actual YouTube video and read the caption you will see what lead up to this and how it was resolved. In the meantime, I’m so sorry for your childhood pain.

    You’re becoming a bully yourself by calling the family names. Not acting much different than they are.

    It is clear to me that you have not been in this situation. Sometimes it is best to take a break and come back to it after you can address it in a more positive light. The laughter of the family can be a turning point for the parents ability to help the daughter. All they are doing is laughing and she has no idea what they are laughing at. The daughter is ASSUMING that they are laughing at her because she is seeking attention in a negative way. The thing that is most striking about this to me is that the dad is EXHAUSTED. When he is not making light of the situation his face is wiped out. THIS IS NOT ABUSE! Let’s not get confused with what real abuse is. NO ONE has said that the little girl is bad or doing anything wrong. This is a family that is trying to deal with the difficulty of a very emotional child and balancing that for the rest of their kids.

    Absolutely nothing like mocking one kid in front of the other kid. My, what a fantastic example you are setting. Now the brother absolutely knows it is ok to make fun of his sister.

    Jesus Christ. Grow up.

    My thought exactly! He knew what she was going to say, and when she would say it. She clearly does this on at least a semi-frequent basis. I have a fit pitcher and it gets very tiring. Sometimes you have to laugh in order not to cry, or worse! My grandmother would have said to tan her rear end, but we can’t do that nowadays. And for the one poster who said she read never to leave a child alone to tantrum, that is talking about a toddler b/c they could injure themselves. A 6 year old girl, especially this 6 year old girl, is fully aware of what she is doing. She is not hurt, she is ANGRY! She needs to learn that she needs to control that anger and the rest of the world doesn’t stop or really give a fat rat’s behind that she is angry. I bet by looking at his family and the other child in the video that as soon as this pretty little princess calmed down whe was allowed back out to join the family. I say well done Dad and Mom!

    I knew there would be a lot of comments on the parenting of these people and there was a time I would have chimed in BUT one out of my four kids was a tantrum thrower. A screaming, kicking, hissy fit throwing ball of rage and nothing at all would prevent it from happening or lessen it at all. So we did exactly what this family is doing, making light of a very tense and nerve wracking situation. I laughed my rear off and wish I had thought of doing this.A note the parents, the kid will grow out of the tantrums. But it seems like forever.

    I always read to never leave a kid alone while having a tantrum

    Seriously? She will never learn ‘adequate behavior’ in a family of bullies. I bet they scream when frustrated since they seem to feel it is adequate to not explain to a young child how to get through her emotions, but instead find it adequate to mock and laugh at her. This is disgusting and shows the level of maturity of her parent’s and I feel absolutely sorry for this kid. YES, her parents may be tired, all parents are, but that should not prevent you from being a good parent, or turn you into a bully to your own child.
