‘My kid, the drama queen’
Child creates drama in ‘the world’s greatest commercial’
Children are extreme beings. It’s easy for young ones to swing violently between hysterical laughter and hysterical rage. The frustration caused by trying to understand this has driven many parents close to the edge: Why isn’t my child happy, they’ll wonder, and what’s causing the mood swings?

Creating drama

The truth is, it’s almost impossible to predict the mind of a child. A corner of crust left on a sandwich can prompt a meltdown. Even just a sandwich accidentally brushing against a crust. A dropped toy. The wrong t-shirt. Just because… It’s easy to feel that sometimes a child is getting upset for no reason at all. Almost as if they’re doing it just to see how you’ll react.

This short video will prove this theory: Children sometimes create drama for effect. As adults, we can either respond with anger or with calm acceptance that it’s just a child being childish.

Of course, the cold, calculating behaviour of this little girl will remind you never to let your guard down, even for a second…
