Sometimes getting a stubborn child to budge in an airport requires a little creativity.
This exasperated dad came up with a simple parenting hack to get his daughter moving on New Year's Day when he pulled her by her hoodie across the smooth floor at Washington's Dulles International Airport - and she seemed perfectly fine with the arrangement.
When daughter refuses to budge at airport, dad gets creative
"The child's just hanging out, and dad's doing the heavy lifting there,'' Carson Daly said on TODAY Monday. "It's a win-win. It's easy for the kid, it's easy for dad, and he's cleaning the airport. It's like a Swiffer."
The unidentified person who shot the video clip noted in the YouTube description that the girl wasn't screaming or upset. She was just along for the ride.
"It is funny how neither one is freaking out,'' Savannah Guthrie said. "It's like they're doing a rolling bag or something."
Avoid food fights. A healthy child instinctively knows how much to eat. If he refuses to finish whatever food is on his plate, just let it go. He won't starve.
Another girl, presumably her sister, was walking about 20 feet behind, most likely embarrassed by her family's antics.
Dad can deal with her later. Right now he's just trying to get everyone out of the airport by any means necessary. We can relate.
