 “Daaaad! Listen to me!!!!!!!!!”

But after listening to his 6-year-old daughter rage for over an hour, dad decided to mix it up by lip-syncing his daughter’s screams. Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

Mom Kathy Sterner captured the sound of their child’s high-pitched squeals and her husband Keiron’s reaction on video.

The moment goes from hysterical to hysterically funny.

“My 6-year-old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down,” the video description from Sterner explains. The daughter had been told she could not have McDonald's for dinner, which prompted the meltdown, Sterner told Yahoo News in an email.

“I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood.”

The father, who has been listening to his daughter yell in the next room for a while, times his Charlie Chaplinesque frowns and wide-open jaw to mimic her fit.

“She'd been screaming the same thing over and over for an hour, so it wasn't hard to anticipate what was coming next, and we could hear her take a breath when she was about to start? up again,” Sterner notes in the comments.

“The ‘Stop laughing at me!’ was a new and unexpected twist, and he went with it,” Sterner explained. She added about her husband, “He's a pretty good actor, and was big into improv when he was younger.”

That's some fine parental skills there.

Another case of parents acting like kids.

 

When the parents are not more mature than the kids the result is predictable and never good.

Actually it was an attempt to get the kid to realize just how much of a whiner she sounds by hearing it out from someone else.  Sometimes it works.

Sometimes you simply have to show that they can't get everything they want. 

 

Life is not always fair.

I wasn't referring to the upload.  I was referring to the example he was trying to make.

As a parent of three girls and having experienced my fair share of temper tantrums (and still experiencing them with a five and two year old), that was great!

Anyone who says the dad is acting immature doesn't have children above the age of 2 years old and if they do I feel sorry for their kids. I have a 3 and a half year old son who is Autistic and this happens a lot with us. It gets to the point where I'm doing it and he isn't even mad anymore, but keeps it going because he finds it hilarious. Sometimes he'll throw a fake tantrum to get me going and I fall for it each time.

Honestly, if you have a child above 2 years old and have never done this you're lying or suck as a parent.
