The Best Way to Deal With Your Kid's Temper Tantrum? This

We're not sure who throws a better -- or funnier -- temper tantrum, this dad or his daughter

As most parents know, even the sweetest, calmest, loving children can, with a snap of the fingers, turn into Linda Blair-Exorcist devil spawn. You know, when a fit goes from whimpers to tears to full-on irrational meltdown that’s, yes, annoying, but mostly makes you laugh so hard you cry.

That’s what happened to this family. In a viral YouTube video titled “40-Year-Old Tantrum” that’s garnered more than 1.1 million views, a dad takes a stab at lightening the mood caused by an hour of listening to his 6-year-old daughter throwing a fit in her room by lip-synching along with the screams.

“For the record, she’s not typically a beast child,” the girl’s mother writes on YouTube. “She’s actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day.”

Oh, yes, have we been there. Most commenters find the dad’s impression hilarious, while a few think the dad is a big ol’ meanie. For the second group? Get over it. So Sometimes kids need to be made fun of; sorry, I’m not sorry.
