Mom’s Simple Trick For Ending Tantrums Is Going Viral Because It Works

OPINION | This article contains opinion that reflects the author's views.

A Georgia mom has suggested doing “zoomies” to stop toddler tantrums.

Zoomies, or frenetic random activity periods (FRAPS), is the term used to describe when dogs suddenly start racing around to burn off energy.

Alivia Cromartie’s TikTok video has been viewed over 15 million times.

In the video, Cromartie’s 18-month-old daughter, Icey, is crying, but Cromartie quickly defuses the situation by running around in circles.

The little girl’s mood then lifts and she starts laughing.

Cromartie has said that she has received many messages from followers who have tried the hack with their own children.

“They’re like, ‘it works!’ I think people are surprised. But it really does work,” she said.
