Hot dad lip syncs 6 y.o. daughter’s hour-long temper tantrum (video)

An hour into their 6 year old daughter’s non-stop temper tantrum, a mom was losing her mind, so dad decided to lighten the mood by lip-syncing the entire thing.

It’s pretty funny, and dad is awfully hot. (As always on the weekends, I’m posting light videos unless some big story breaks, otherwise we’ll be back to ragging on Teabaggers on Monday.)

Mom reports that the daughter is actually a really good kid who was having a particularly bad day.

Oh, and did I mention that dad is awfully hot?

    Joe, sometimes you’ve done what you are supposed to (not fed into it, not screamed back, not caved) and there isn’t much else to do except find something, anything, to laugh at. This isn’t the Israel Palestinian conflict. It is a mom and dad at wit’s end (who, I might add, were not spanking their kid or freaking out on them). Lighten up.

  • Butch1

    My father, as well.

    . . . or watching you in the mirror from the other room?

    He probably didn’t even notice. ;-) ( We did . . . )

  • Butch1

    Good point. You can tell I never had any kids. ;-)

    I would suggest that mocking is a form of abuse. Hopefully, someone tried to understand why she was upset later after she called down — or god forbid, helped her calm down so she could learn a different way to express herself. She was clearly screaming however, “Stop laughing!” She’s unlikely to think that anyone, her family especially, will care why she was originally upset, which constitutes a kind of abuse in my book.

  • JD

    I’m not a parent, but this mocking looks more like bullying than “discouraging a tantrum”.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Just saying, but being teased like that would’ve been a walk in the park compared to the violent beatings my siblings and I had to endure if we cried too loudly or for longer than about five minutes.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Not that is how you handle a tantrum.

  • lanmanna

    How? For the parents not coddling the brat?

  • lanmanna

    Who should take a brat seriously?

  • Joe

    I’m raising my kids to be kind. And no shit the child is “manipulating,” Dr Freud… They have limited resources, physical and social. Nothing groundbreaking there. There’s a very bright line between adroitly managing a child’s behavior and ridiculing the child to show that you’re boss. In front of that child’s sibling. And then posting it. That’s what I meant by being afraid of ones own kids. As for Ted. Cruz, fuck him too.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Perhaps Grindr has an app that works on a blog.

  • TampaZeke

    If something like this traumatizes this child for life then she should never leave the security of her bedroom. She was in a different room and didn’t even see her dad’s mime. She’ll see it later, after she has calmed down, and will probably find it to be hilarious.

  • TampaZeke

    Beats the hell outa homophobic e-harmony!

  • TampaZeke

    It’s people like you who raise spoiled, temper tantrum throwing brats to be spoiled, temper tantrum throwing adults LIKE TED CRUZ, that the rest of us then have to endure.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    What do you suggest?

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    You cannot take tantrums seriously. It’s similar to feeding trolls.
    I taught first grade. I once had a new student throw herself on the floor and begin screaming and crying. I could only stare in disbelief, and so was the rest of the class. When she realized that we were all looking, she stopped. However, the rest of the class never let her forget

  • Joe

    This guy is a jackass to laugh about his kid that way, and exponentially so to publish this. All you “parents” congratulating him for not being taken by his child’s “manipulation” remind me why there are so many assholes running amok in this country. They were raised by insensitive parents like you who are afraid of your own toddlers.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    –Agree with you a hundred percent. When reading reactions like Cletus’ it is a powerful perception of great pain in the past.

    “”Wow! Mommy did that for me when I screamed? Let’s see what she does for me the next time I scream.”
    OR an MO of the Gerry Mander Congress.

  • Zorba

    Don’t entirely minimize Cletus’s experience, k. I am sure that he was forever traumatized by his travails as a youngster. This happens far too often.
    I am just not convinced that this family is going to have a daughter traumatized for life because of this particular incident. I think that this kid already has a whole lot more problems than anything that some parental laughter and a YouTube will cause. It is absolutely not normal for a six-year-old to have an hour long tantrum, as I said previously. This kid, and these parents, need a whole lot of outside help.

  • Butch1

    LOL! Poor thing is probably going to think that no one ever takes her serious ever again. ;-

  • Zorba

    Okay, John, you are the Borg, apparently. ;-)

    Sometimes reactions are like that, probably based on a tucked away trauma in our past. I had a similar reaction when viewing that British skit of shooting down Dumbo by the Taliban.

    It is not entirely clear that the girl was in the same room with them, first of all. It seems as though Mom, Dad, and brother left her alone in the other room to continue her tantrum without an audience.
    Now, the girl probably did hear them laughing. But a six-year-old who is having an hour-long or more temper tantrum, has a whole lot of other associated problems. Better for the parents to try to do anything they can to prevent themselves from going crazy, or to prevent themselves from whacking the shit out of the kid, and I can certainly understand that.
    Get that kid into therapy, ASAP. A six-year-old should not be having tantrums lasting over an hour. I am a retired special education teacher, I taught kids with developmental disabilities and severe (some exceptionally severe) emotional and behavioral disorders. Throughout my career, none of them, and I mean none of them, ever had a tantrum lasting that long.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Mine would have as well. In a way, that’s nice. My parents were abused, and they passed it on. I made a decision that the abuse would end with me, and it did end.

  • Cletus

    Guess no one else realizes how traumatizing that is for a six year old child. I remember being taunted like that and I’m 54. It’s not a fond memory.

  • sherman

    I thought he was listening to a recording and had practiced. He’s saying things at the same time like lipsyncing, not a slight delay which there would be if it were “live”.

    The crotch grab was a nice touch.

    Funny and completely appropriate response! “Scarred for life”? Doubt it. Prolly won’t waste another hour of the family’s time throwing a hissy fit, though. When kids throw tantrums and parents freak out, the kids have the power in the situation. “Wow! Mommy did that for me when I screamed? Let’s see what she does for me the next time I scream.”

    Dad’s giving a lesson to all of his kids – temper tantrums aren’t an acceptable way of expressing displeasure or getting what you want… Unless you want people to make fun of you and laugh at you.

    Good job, Dad!! Congratulations on not resorting to violence with your children like so many parents do. There will come a time when all your kids will appreciate this lesson.

  • jomicur

    There doesn’t seem to be any YouTube video, no matter now sweet, funny or innocuous, that doesn’t attract hatred from some of the internet’s (many) sociopaths.

  • woodroad34

    Dad has a great sense of humor and Mike_in_the_Tundra is right…she’s using emotional blackmail. The daughter doesn’t sound like she’s all that young not to know what she’s doing is not nice and manipulative. It’s the same thing with that woman in the car who starts having a tantrum because her husband won’t take her where she wants to go: http://youtu.be/PEPoO08IMog
    That little girl isn’t going to be traumatized…she’s too strong willed for that.
    Oh, and did I mention his humor makes him hot…not withstanding his looks, ya’ll know.

  • http://heimaey.us/ heimaey

    With a dad like that, that daughter will learn to laugh at herself which is one of the greatest gifts he can give her.

  • http://heimaey.us/ heimaey

    Woah DILF!!!

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Temper tantrums are just emotional blackmail. We can forgive that in a child, but not in John Boehner. Parents have to do their best to ignore these outbursts. If this helped them, I see absolutely no problem. Plus, the dad is incredibly hot.

    I have imitated my daughter’s tantrums for her. She’s now an adult and finds my “performances” funny.

  • DastiusKrazitauc

    I agree. When I saw it, I said, ¨What lucky kids to have a dad like that¨. Sadly, on the youtube comments there is some ¨go kill yourself¨ bullying going on. I don´t know who it´s directed at, but it´s shocking to see.

  • http://thebrainpolice.blogspot.com microdot

    Dad is hilarious and right on target. Traumatized for life? Get over it…Dad has a sense of humor and that is a priceless gift he will give his kids. Yeesh!

  • TampaZeke

    Helloooooo DADDY! Smokin’ hot man!

    And before too many more self-righteous, humorless people comment, let’s point out that the daughter was in another room and didn’t see her dad’s hilarious mime. She will probably find this just as funny as everyone else when she watches it. And some day she’ll probably play it for her kids to laugh at.

  • TonyT

    Don’t think it’s funny. Sorry.

  • Cletus

    And daughter is traumatized for life…
