Instead of petting her children, a Nigerian mother demonstrated a different method of soothing them. @saintavenue ent1 shared a video on Instagram of a funny moment between a mother and her crying child.
Instead of petting the crying baby, the mother stood in front of him and fake-cried loudly. She rubbed spittle from her mouth on both sides of her face, as if crying.
The child stopped crying and stared at her mother, possibly taken aback by her mother’s unusual reaction. After seeing that her plan had worked, the mother paused and planted a kiss on the now-calm child’s lips.
