How would you describe your quarantine life? Is it fun, boring, productive, emotional, frustrating, all of it? Well, in case you are struggling to describe your lockdown diaries, I’ve stumbled upon a video that might summarize our feelings towards this period.
In a video shared online, a little girl sobs in frustration as everything is shut down. The 4-year-old complains how she can’t eat her favourite ice cream or go out anywhere due to the lockdown. She rants about how everything that is fun and enjoyable remains closed these days.
While her parents patiently try to console her, the kiddo says that things are getting boring and frustrating. She exclaims how the only thing that is open is ‘Nothing’. She then points out how germs are getting around people and making them sick and that is why we should remain at home.
Have a look at the entire video:
Wow, the lil girl not only expressed her emotions adequately but also understood the gravity of the situation. Many people were left impressed by how her parents let her express her feelings and how the young girl did it so eloquently.
I love how her parents aren't doing that "Just stop crying and eat your food" but are genuinely listening to her voice out her frustrations ♥️♥️😭

Tell me how come this sweet baby acknowledges both that it is really hard to be in quarantine AND that it is necessary to stay safe. Literally she’s way more mature than some of these adults who throw tantrums for being asked to wear a mask.

She’s very intelligent and expresses herself better than 90% of adults I encounter. This made me laugh and cry at once

That baby maybe sad right now but she is going places. Wise little woman.

She’s making excellent points. She articulated her feelings really well. “I like doing these things but I can’t do these things right now. I get WHY I can’t do these things but I’m still frustrated.”

It's amazing how articulate kids are with their emotions when their feelings are not invalidated.❤️❤️

This young lady is extremely smart! And listening to her made me so sad for our children.. what have we done? What kind of 🌎 are we creating for them? Our children should NOT have to worry about things like this‼️😤🙏🏼

This 4 yr old understands #COVID__19 better than the adults.

Yes honey! Use👏🏾 your 👏🏾words!!! Honestly there are grown ups who can’t even articulate their frustration this eloquently. It’s ok to not be ok. Good job parents👍🏾

I totally feel her. Everything that is fun is shut down: dramatic truth. Kids’ brains need play and movement. This is tough.
