When it comes to parenting, there are lots of different ways of doing it. But the biggest test occurs when little kids create any sort of scene in public. Whether it’s throwing a major tantrum at a restaurant or spilling sticky liquid all over the floor of a superstore, these things are bound to happen, especially when you are raising young kids. But the big question is, how do we handle such situations? One dad has set a perfect example and a mother happened to make note of the entire incident. She was so touched and impressed by how the father dealt with his young boy, that she immediately shared the story on Facebook.
Kalynne Marie from Minneapolis was enjoying her coffee and snacks in Starbucks at a local Target when she saw a little boy aged maybe 6 or 7 spill slushie all over the floor. It was hard to watch but also very common as she is a mom too. But what she did not expect was the jaw-dropping reaction of the boy’s father.
Here’s the original post she shared on Facebook:
“I was so inspired by how he was handling the situation,” Marie told Babble.
“As soon as the father started helping his son clean up, I opened the Notes app on my phone…”
Of course, Marie’s Facebook post went viral with numerous parents expressing appreciation for the dad and also sharing their own parenting stories.
