Children’s temper tantrums. They’re a fact of life. But when one little girl was screaming and crying recently, rather than getting frustrated or yelling back, her father took a different route.

Instead of rebuking his daughter, he decided to “lip sync” and act out her entire tantrum — and record it on video. A clip of the faux fit is now nearing 1 million views on YouTube.

In the video, the unnamed father can be seen imitating his daughter as she shrieks and cries off-camera. While much of the tantrum is unintelligible, the little girl can be heard repeatedly screaming, “Stop it!” as her father ignores her and unrelentingly mimics her cries.

Originally posted Oct. 11, the video, “40-year-old tantrum,” is 49 seconds long and was uploaded by a woman, Kathy Sterner, who says she’s the little girl’s mother.

“My 6-year-old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down. I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood,” reads the description accompanying the video.

The mother insisted her daughter is “not typically a beast child” and this was just a “rough day” for the little girl.

Many YouTube commenters wrote in that they found the father’s antics endearing.

“HILARIOUS!!!! that’s awesome I should so do this to my son next time he [decides] to go all whiny whiny scream scream lol,” one user wrote.

“This made my day!” added another.

Others, though, didn’t find the video funny.

“Maybe you should address the underlying reason why your child cries for one hour over something. Or you could mock and laugh at them and upload a video onto youtube for ‘support,’” said an unimpressed viewer.

“Personally I didn’t find this funny as being laughed at when you’re in such a bad mood isn’t funny. But it’s still better than the alternative,” wrote another.
