The video, which has been shared thousands of times and elicited fits of laughter from viewers, depicts the father engaging in some light-hearted parenting with his toddler.
Supported by two pillows on a chair, the baby looked up at her father with unwavering attention, almost as if she understood the gravity of the situation.
In the father’s words;
“I don’t even know what is making you cry. I’m not joking. I’m talking, don’t talk.”
The baby, perhaps sensing the gravity of the situation, listened attentively and even appeared to mimic her father’s seriousness.
In a particularly amusing moment, the father pulled his own ear to emphasize the importance of not crying.
He playfully complained that the baby was continually disturbing their compound, a situation many parents can relate to.
The video quickly gained popularity on TikTok, garnering thousands of likes, shares, and comments from entertained users.
Many Nigerians, in particular, were charmed by the baby’s surprisingly composed reaction to her father’s hilarious lecture.
