MANY parents know the struggle of trying to take an item from their child when they really don’t want to give it up.
TikTok mum Nee, who posts under @thebeesnee, shared her very simple method that works every time and prevents her one-year-old from having a tantrum.
Nee uploaded a video with the caption: “Gentle parenting. How I take something away from my one-year-old.”
She showed her daughter clutching a toy that she didn’t want to give up.
The mum-of-three continued: “First I ask her for it and then I take it if she doesn’t want to hand it over.
“Right after I comfort her and help her regulate her emotions.
“I make sure to stay calm the whole time.”
She then asks her daughter if she’d rather play with something else and helps “redirect” her towards something she can have.
Nee’s post has racked up over 125,000 likes, and people said they wanted to try her technique.
One said: “I love these, I need to use this on my daughter with the ornaments on the Christmas tree.”
