A good-humored mom recently filmed herself while lip syncing her four-year-old daughter’s tantrum.
Jennifer Closson Aprea posted the video (below) on YouTube on May 8 and it already has over 300,000 views.
"I figured it might just make her laugh and diffuse the situation so we could both get some sleep," Aprea told The Huffington Post.
Aprea was prepared to diffuse any Internet criticism.
"I would never do this if I thought it would make her feel badly," Aprea stated. "Sometimes you just need to laugh with your kids to get them through the tough tantrums."
Aprea told Buzzfeed how she lip synced so well: "I think the number of tantrums I’ve survived helped with my ability to predict her outbursts. She definitely gets into a rhythm.”
A video of Aprea's son hearing for the first time in his life (with a cochlear implant) went viral last year on Facebook.
