UNITED STATES — This child is truly a genius and a master negotiator in-the-making. While encouraging her siblings to do better and be greater, she catches her mom off-guard with a simple-yet-complicated question.
A video was shared via Facebook and shows the little girl teaching her sister and cousin how to read.
“They need to learn!” the girl exclaims.
Once you see her passion, there’s no doubt she truly cares for the well-being of her growing family members.
According to the little girl, she was about to enter first-grade, and her sister was about to start kindergarten. From a look at the video, the child was getting her sister and cousin to read the labels on a box of Ramen noodles.
She taught them the words “soup,” “spicy,” and “hot” during the video. And when her sister got it right, she gave ample praises.
“Good job! You gon’ be SMART when you get in kindergarten. At least you know what that say. Your cousin don’t even know. Teach her again! What does it say?”
The sister responded again with the correct answer. So, again, “big sis” praised her efforts.
“Good job! Give me a hi-five! That’s what I’m talking about. You gon’ be ready for kindergarten, cause your big sister teach you a lot of words, don’t she? And you get it right!”
HERE’S WHERE SHE CATCHES YOU SLIPPING
As the lesson continues, the little girl decides to up the learning incentive a bit. In an effort not to spoil it for you, take a look at the video below.
NOTE: I swear I hollered when she said it. Wasn’t expecting that at all.
So far, the video has garnered over 2.7 million views within a days’ time. According to the source, Bad Parenting Moments, it was uploaded yesterday — April 2.
Ironically enough — and not knocking the source’s page — this video doesn’t show “bad parenting” at all. In fact, it shows that there’s great parenting in this household.
Also, the source’s caption shows support, stating: “I love how supportive and sweet this girl is with her sister…but my favorite part is the turn it takes at the end!”
Surely, there’s a reason why this little girl is so zealous about her sister’s education — simultaneously showing her own intelligence in the process.
Apparently, SOMEBODY has been taking time to show her that possibilities are limitless when you apply yourself.
The fact that she knows about the child support money goes to show her mother isn’t keeping it from her and is probably using it on the child, specifically.
She’s not out of the loop at all, it seems.
However, of course, there are naysayers talking down on the little girl for various reasons.
For instance, Abiola Sampson comments as follows.
“Really, I don’t see anything ‘cute’ about this video. Why is she encouraging her sister but putting down her cousin? She should have spent time helping her cousin instead.”
Then, there’s Kathy Myers‘ comment: “Not sure she should even know what child support money is. This is just strange in so many ways. Cute in some ways, but weird in others.”
Obviously, Kathy can take as many seats as possible.
Too, there were other comments like those as well; however, they all were shut down by everyone else and made to look foolish.
Nevertheless, Sunday Marie offered an interest take on the little girl’s conversation.
“This is somebody’s grandma trapped in a little girl’s body! Y’all know how old people lean in and lower their voices when they’re about to drop something serious on your ears.
And, she’s definitely right about that.
This child is intelligent beyond her years, and it’s great to see that she cares so much about her family’s mental well-being to the point she’s even willing to cough up some of her child support money as incentive.
