You can try ignoring them. Or cajoling them. Bribery, reason, sending them to their rooms. But sometimes the only tool a parent has when their kid has a meltdown and won't come up for air is simple mockery. YouTuber Kathy Sterner reports that her 6-year-old daughter "had been in her room wigging out for about an hour" and was just about ready to pitch a fit herself when her husband decided to "lighten the mood." Dad has a little Kevin Spacey in him, as it turns out, and his lip-synching impression had everyone in stitches (except his young daughter, naturally). Relax, armchair child psychologists. "For the record," Sterner wrote, "she's not typically a beast child — she's actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day."
