A Video of a Dad Stopping His 3-Year-Old’s Tantrum Is an Internet Hit

My name is Marissa Charles and I’ve just met my new hero. Well sort of. I haven’t met him in person, or even online. But I watched a six-minute video of him, which begins with his 3-year-old daughter screaming her head off and having a fit and ends with her dancing, giggly and happy.

It’s magical to watch. He didn’t shout at her. He didn’t whoop her butt or bribe her with junk food or toys. So what did he do? What did my new hero do to get his child to go from a seemingly snotty-nosed, red-faced angry brat to an angel?
