Parents Use Cardboard Cut-Outs Of Mom To Stop Son From Crying When She Leaves The Room And It Actually Works

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.
