While we love our kids and grandkids, it’s hard not to be a little irritated by a restless child on a long flight. That’s why the travel community has hailed this Dad a hero for his ingenious trick to tire out his son before boarding.
In the video below you can see the Dad holding his young son on the escalator and guiding him as he takes step after step.
Others weren’t so supportive, saying the method is dangerous and a walk around the terminal would do the same job.
Some shared their own tips with several users commenting: “Have you ever heard of children’s benadryl?”
Another person commented: “Everyone knows to carry a mini Jack Daniels for the kid.”
Some people warned that making the child tired would only make him more irritable when he boarded the plane. Whatever the case, it’s certainly a funny sight.
