TikToker Shares the Moments of Teaching Her Child to Correct Her Own Mistake

Parenting is quite a challenge, especially while teaching your child a lesson. But when your kid is at a young, tender age, correcting their mistakes needs a gentle but effective approach rather than heavy handling. A mom shared her experience in a TikTok video about how she taught an important life lesson to her five-year-old daughter.

The Video

The mother took to TikTok to share the moment she made her five-year-old daughter take responsibility for her own mistake. The video, shared from the handle @elissa.j.l, has gone viral ever since with over two million views. The little girl Quinn, now six, has definitely become the shining star sharing her experience of having a lesson on personal accountability.

The Incident

It’s not uncommon for most five-year-olds to have little understanding of the value of any property. So, when little Quinn drew all over a library book with a pen, it wasn’t anything atypical for a kid of her age. But that didn’t make her mom let the matter go, instead, she coached her daughter gently into doing the right thing. The heartwarming video detailed all the steps Quinn took to apologize to the librarian for her action and give her a new book that her mother had bought. That little girl surely got the lesson that day that correcting a mistake is necessary even when it looks scary.

The Lesson

Like any other child, Quinn initially resisted due to the nervousness to face the librarian after her mistake. But as mentioned in the video caption, her mom felt that there’s no time like the present to teach a child to take responsibility for their own actions. She explained that they had been practicing the apology and then gently encouraged her daughter to admit and apologize for her mistake. The librarian also made a kind-hearted choice to let Quinn have the book she had drawn on in exchange for the replacement.

Italy’s Highest Volcano, Mount Etna, Erupts Again After Months of Quiet

Italy’s Mount Etna erupted last week, and filled the sky with a brilliant glow. The mesmerizing and dramatic scene happened last Thursday, when the 3,330 meter high volcano roared back to life in a spectacular display. No injuries or property damage were reported despite the massive eruption, with ash shooting more than 6 miles into the air above sea level. Read on to find out how the grand volcanic mountain is a true natural wonder.

The Eruption

The lava flow from the mountain was centered around the crater on the mountain’s southeast slope, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Italy, reported. The lava flow stopped by Monday, but the institute had already issued a warning earlier that day as a volcanic cloud poured out of Etna. The humongous eruption created a volcanic storm, complete with bolts of lightning. The majestic display of Etna’s power could be seen from the nearby Catania. The mountain had been quiet for a few months now. Etna has had frequent eruptions, at least ever since 425 B.C. The worst-known eruption of the mountain happened in 1669, when the lava flow buried parts of Catania. During the last major eruption in 1992, the army built an earthen wall to contain the lava, which flowed from Etna for months.

Visiting Etna

The highest and the most active volcano in Italy is quite popular with hikers, skiers, and other travelers. Visitors to the volcano can take a cable car, or hike along the several trails there. Travelers can also take advantage of the luxury hotels and outstanding wine scene that the area is popular for. The volcano and the surrounding Ionian Sea are also featured in the new season of HBO’s hit TV show The White Lotus. The show will be filmed at Sicily’s Four Seasons San Domenico Palace. Its panoramic view will definitely make a great addition to the show.
