An over-it dad has been filmed dragging his clearly over-it kiddo through an airport by the hood of her jacket.
And while the viral video might be a shock to non-parents, because it does look a bit dodgy, mums and dads everywhere are a little more sympathetic and jumping to his defence.
We all get it
The footage of the poor dad was filmed by a fellow traveller at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia on New Years Day.
He can be seen sliding his daughter across the terminal as another little girl, probably his other daughter, trails behind him.
Child abuse or just a desperate dad?
The controversial video, posted by Viral Hog, is getting some mixed reactions.
While many people have commented that it’s cruel to drag a child in public, with it bordering on child abuse, others are pointing out that the child looks quite comfortable being slid.
On the pro-dad side, parents of the internet are coming to the man’s defence.
Several have commented that before having kids, they also would have been horrified by the footage and would have sworn they would never do that. But after having kids, and experiencing the agony that is travelling with overtired little ones, or dealing with an irrational toddler having a public meltdown, they get it.
“Oh man, I’m sure every parent has reached this level of frustration,” said one.
“Anyone with toddlers can understand this LOL,” added another.
A nice way to travel
In more defence of the dad, who has no idea he is being filmed we might add, parents have also pointed out that the hood slide is actually a quite clever technique for moving his kiddo. They can see that he’s lugged up, but also dealing with a little one who is refusing to walk.
