3-Year-Old Deserves Oscar for Amazing Tantrum Performance (VIDEO)

LOL 56

bowl too heavyIf there's one word I had to choose to describe my 3-year-old daughter, it's drama. There's drama over what she's going to wear, which of her teeth she's going to brush first, and over which parking spot I choose. All drama, all the time. From what I can tell, she's not alone among her toddler peers though; it seems to be their forte. The 3-year-old in this video, however, has a particularly impressive knack for it -- award-worthy even.

Her dad wants her to take her bowl to the sink, but she just finds it "too heavy." She cries; she moans; she wails; and she throws herself about. A complete meltdown as well as much hilarity ensue. It's a performance you don't want to miss. Check it out after the jump.

And the Oscar ... should go to her. My favorite part is that after she's done it, the drama doesn't end. She's still completely unglued that she had to do it, and it was soooo heavy. At least she remembered to pick up her spoon and take it to the sink without being asked.

I'm so glad her dad caught this one film. It's quite reassuring to me that I'm not the only one trapped in such day-to-day drama over the smallest things. I just need to remember to grab my camera more often and see the entertainment value in it rather than the brain-splitting frustration that's usually overshadowing it.

Could your toddler win an award for drama? What's their best performance?

God what a brat. I'm so glad YouTube wasn't around when I was little and acting like a spoiled brat for my parents.

my 3yr old and I recently had an all day stand off.  She never did give in, but boy was she angry all day.  She wanted to go outside.  I told her that would be fine if she let me help her get on pants, a long sleaved shirt, and her haiir brushed.  She cried, she screamed off and on throughout the day.  I sent her to her rm and told her she could come out when she stopped yelling.  Back and forth to her rm she went all day.  She informed me that she was NEVER EVER going outside again.

OMG I love it!  Last week my son had a temper tantrum because he spilled his smoothie, which had banana in it,  and he stepped in it, so it was a bit slippery.  And I wanted to clean his feet and then he had a BIG old tantrum..."no clean slippery feet, no clean slippery feet...[no] clean slippery feet....waaaa".   So I waited until he was ready and calmed down and cleaned his feet.  Silly boy.  Like, okay, you want to slip and fall?  Be my guest!  If you insist!


Toddlers...gotta love 'em!

I think we've all been there done that, my middle daughter could throw a tantrum like ther was no tomorrow, and she fought sleep like that, too.

this was awesome :)


It does help to remember that it's not just your kid who acts like their entire world is crashing down around them because of silly, minor little events. My 2.5 year old son does this regularly over his outfits - he always wants "a better shirt" - no matter how long we look, or how many shirts I suggest, none of them are actually better. We do the whole spiel almost every day.

1st off to the person who call this little girl a spoiled brat YOU R wrong!! It is normal for a child to push limits..she still did what she was asked Daddy did not do it for her. KUDOS to Dad for not having a melt down himself!! She was just testing to see what would happen....:) Poor thing was in her jammies so bed time was either just around the corner or she just got up..lol
