If you’re a parent, you know how hard it is to leave your young one even if it’s just for a minute. Your child won’t let you even enjoy a couple of minutes in the bathroom to take care of your business alone. One mom has come up with a genius way to stop her child from crying every time she leaves the room. She had a cardboard cut-out made of herself that she sets up when she steps away.
Even though it sounds like a weird trick that wouldn’t work, it actually does.
Japanese mom Fuki Sata decided to make the cardboard cut-out after quickly realizing her child would cry every time she left the room.
Her husband shared 2 photographs of 2 different cutouts on Twitter and as you can tell, the child appears to be convinced that his mom is still in the room.
The dad also points out that at no point was the child left completely alone. The mom was just in the other room.
The mom does check on her son every few minutes.
As you can see, the entire plan goes off basically without a hitch. The kid seems to be enjoying himself as if his mom was still in the room.
Check out the video below.
This may seem like a bizarre form of parenting, but it’s pretty genius.
