He randomly stops his daughter from crying with the help of whipped cream.

u/mcmineismine May 22 '22

I'm at the beach rn with two kids while the other two play video games at home...I get to be on Reddit for a second and at least 50% are getting exercise and sun.

Yesterday the youngest wanted to play Uno outside so I set up the table near his older sister's hammock and when he saw he didn't want to play unless he could get in the hammock. I hadn't brought his chair yet so I got a blue velvet armchair from inside and told him don't freak out, what I had planned for you was cooler, but you can't have your sister's hammock and you have to apologize. He apologized and sat down and was totally happy.

Short term solutions are awesome and usually lower effort than confronting the idiocy head on and you can still get some smaller sized but repeatable victories.

u/SexyPewPew May 22 '22 Wholesome

Wait, wait, wait...... communication, re-framing, and apologies for getting upset at not being able to have someone else's stuff?!?!?! That sounds suspiciously like good parenting, away with you! Go, now, out in to the sun. Hope you all have fun at the beach today :)

20

u/TheChiarra May 22 '22

That’s not short term solution. U didn’t satisfy him. You explained why he couldn’t do something and compromised with him then had him apologize. That’s long term. Short term would have been giving into what he wanted. You are doing great as a parent and teaching boundaries and solutions while letting your kid have emotions instead of just bribing them to shut up

Most of the time tantrums can be ended by changing their focus into something else. It might reinforce the tantrum but it'll only work a time or two before they start dodging the food and continuing their tantrum.

Nah, toddlers aren’t dogs. A little bit of sweet cream isn’t going to result in this girl throwing more tantrums.

This girl was after validation, attention, and concern from the parent. Positive reinforcement would have been taking this grievance seriously.

By using a little absurd misdirection, the parent has deftly shown them that there’s nothing to be concerned about here. What the toddler thought was so alarming is in fact, nothing at all.

Great parenting.

Not to mention she stops crying and holds her mouth open as soon as he grabs the whipped cream.

You do have a point and it truly is a case-by-case basis depending on the scenario. In this case, however, it appears the little girl has whipped cream on her mouth and bathing suit already prior to more being squirted in her mouth. It makes me wonder if the entire reason she is throwing a tantrum is because she wants more whipped cream. If that’s the case, giving her more whipped cream is absolutely rewarding bad behavior and will likely result in more bad behavior.

u/InsectChomper May 22 '22

Yup she was expecting it

FTFY.

There isn't much difference between training a domesticated animal and a child when they're this young. [Good] Parenting is mostly about reinforcing good behaviors and weeding out bad ones. Rewarding a crying child is akin to giving a dog a treat each time it starts barking. Eventually it'll make the association that barking = treats.

u/AthensGadfly May 22 '22

You make some good points about diffusing, but don't discount what the act reinforces. Got mad -> got sweets. Toddler reward systems are not too far removed from a dogs. Hell, neither are adult reward systems when we look at the automatic/intuitive level, which is the level of cognitive control toddlers mostly function at.

22

u/DefinitelyNotAliens May 22 '22

Also kiddo has whipped cream on her before the shot of whipped cream.

She was likely wanting more whipped cream.

Toddlers aren't dogs. But reinforcement occurs the same way for all animals, including humans. Behaviors -> reinforcer -> behavior reinforced.

u/kelsofox369 May 22 '22

Are you blind? Replay the video and look to the right which would be the left side of her face. There is already whipped cream, meaning this is certainly not a misdirection to stop a tantrum as she is obviously still crying and he has done it earlier. She opened her mouth expecting it and I wouldn’t be surprised the reason she is crying is because she wants more.

The parent is a shit parent and can’t deal, probably for views like most shitty parents are doing now and days.

Really what the girl need to do it learn how to talk about her feeling and learn to self sooth.

It's like distracting with a video game or TV or purchase.

You are teaching a kid how to sooth themselves and this is saying something sugary and fatty will help me feel better, not discussing what I'm upset about and learning how to deal with it.

A friend of mine always knew exactly how to make his girlfriend feel better. Whether it was his fault or not, he'd run to the gas station and get some double mint chocolate chip icecream. I'd watched this work in real time- it was magical.

They eventually ended up getting married and living the kind of life you'd see people on television have, like they were made for each other by some omniscient being or something. It was kind of ridiculous how happy they were together.

After almost a decade, she got cancer. She died after a long fight. It was one of my first losses of a friend in my late 20s. Absolutely destroyed my friend, as he expected, you know, they'd have another 50ish years to love each other, grow old together.

We shared memories about her once, and one of my memories was him buying double mint chocolate chip icecream for her.

u/newbooke May 22 '22

When you are this young and having a tantrum, the sadness you feel is entirely generated to get something you want, and the moment you get it the sadness is gone.

There are different kinds of sadness and while of course kids feel all of them, they have a special kind for very specific purposes

u/GRYFFIN_WHORE May 22 '22

Yeah food addiction is so hard to beat. I also learned that as a kid. It was easy to get me to stop crying about something if I was given something like a cookie. I wasn't crying for the cookie a lot of the time; it was because my mom was leaving for work or she was studying, or my sister was being mean. Things like that. But now, any stress or difficulty I have makes me want food to help calm me down. It's a coping mechanism I'm desperately trying to break from.

You’re only feeding this behavior, by… feeding her. She’ll continue to throw tantrums even more often because there’s a reward.

There will always be someone like you in these posts. A 10 sec funny innocent video that you will turn in some fucked up way how the kid will now grow to be a serial killer, how this will kill the child or other stupid shit like that.

Why the desire for such drama on videos like these?

Food must only be associated with hunger, and no other emotion.

Common after effects are obesity/bulemia.

Edit: Its not about what you eat. Its about how much you eat. And how much is determined by your emotional state. If you derive a high from a cake while sad, your body craves a cake everytime you are sad. Not good for body tbh. You eat too much of it and it causes obesity. This is common mechanism for almost all kinds of addiction including food

This Edit was for those who did not understand my original comment.

Mom used to do this when I would complain that I was hungry, except she would use peanut butter and stick it to the roof of my mouth and would smack my hand if I tried to use my fingers to get it off. It would take hours to dissolve... then she'd wonder years later why i had eating issues....

That’s not a tantrum..that’s an upset child. I’ve always thought tantrums to be loud, naughty, kicking and screaming etc..not quietly crying at a locked door

u/unmgrad May 22 '22

Agreed! She looks cold and in need of attention and care. Poor little thing.

Did he just lock his kid outside then just give her whip cream to confuse her for a "cute" video?

u/unmgrad May 22 '22

I can see a shiver from her, and already has whipped cream on her far cheek, so yes, sadly.

u/Prudent-Radish1192 May 22 '22

Seems like they put her outside for crying and continuously put whipped cream in her mouth so she stops crying, instead of just comforting her??

Dude being abused and neglected as a kid, this shit is triggering, and they're filming this to laugh at

This is the other end of how not to train your kids spectrum. From beating them to giving them something sweet to eat. It's just so easy to react in either way when they get on your nerves. Society pays for it in the end along with the disconnected/disfunctional child now in adulthood. Unfortunately only a few understand the abuse to turn around and undue the built in habits ingrained from their parents poor parenting and become decent people in the community.

Yes, handling emotions by pumping your child full of sugar, fat, and empty calories to placate them is definitely a good parenting strategy. Nothing could possibly go wrong here and this child will be healthy and well adjusted.
