Dad Left Home Alone With Baby Panics When She Won't Stop Crying (VIDEO)

the power of loveWhen it comes to crying babies, fussy infants, or tantrumy toddlers, many parents reach for the path of least resistance: Technology. It's not exactly a surprise, being that, well, crying babies, fussy infants, and tantrumy toddlers can be really stressful and unpleasant to be around. But at the end of the day, the iPhone, iPad, or iWhatever can't hold a candle to good old fashioned human contact.

A Thai technology company called DTac recently released a video called "The Power of Love" that beautifully demonstrates how a parent's love, affection, and attention can trump a smartphone any day of the week.

Check out the heartwarming video and prepare to unplug tonight.

Okay, so it's a little crazy that the dad didn't think to pick the baby up sooner, but the message still rings true: As often as possible, we should try to soothe our babies and toddlers ourselves, as opposed to sticking them in front of a glowing screen. Of course, there will be times when children do prefer TV shows or FaceTime to Mom and Dad, but, in general, they really just want the latter. And we should make it a habit to resort to that first.

Are you a bad mom or dad for giving your child some screen time here and there? Of course not. But, please, don't ever think it can replace human contact. Because, ultimately, nothing can.

Do you let your child use technology?
