Dad Drags His Daughter Through the Airport

Dad Drags His Daughter Through the Airport
Meg Butler

Traveling with kids, I think we can all agree, can be pretty difficult. But we can’t help but wonder exactly what manner of meltdown led to this particular viral parenting moment.

We’re also curious about how often Being Dragged By Her Parka has to have found herself in a similar situation for her sister to be following along at this rather impressive level of unfazed.

Dad level 9000 from r/gifs

Please let us know if you can A) name this airport, B) know whether she would be classified as a carry-on or a personal item C) have spotted other inventive airport parenting techniques that you can share in the comments’ section.

    It looks like Main Terminal Washington Dulles, between baggage claim 11 and 12.

    That looks like “Irresistible Force meets Immovable Dad”, to me.

    Technically she is an unmechanized floor buffer

    Well, at least dad knows that his daughter will have self confidence and persistence. That’s one strong willed kid.

    Why is this news? She looks fine, — arms folded, no apparent tantrum or hysterics. Maybe it’s a game they are playing. Unfair to call Dad out for this.

    A. STL Airport?
    B. IF she fits in the luggage sizer she should be considered carry-on.
    C. I agree with pdsales. She is a floor buffer.

    Even if the kid likes it, it’s really disgusting! Imagine what her pink outfit will look like after 20 seconds.

    You know. We all know that he shouldn’t do it. And we can all understand why he would do it. At least the pressure point is under her arms and not her neck.

    I don’t have a problem with this. Either the kid walks or gets dragged. Just wait until she’s a teenager and the dad has her paged at the mall.

    I don’t have a problem with this either. Much better than a screaming, kicking kid. But she’s probably having too much fun.

    And no it’s not child abuse before the PC crowd chimes in!

    A word of caution for anyone tempted to scream “Child abuse!”: It’s entirely possible the child is a willing participant in this stunt and is enjoying it. When my kid sisters were young they did things like this a few times, asking my parents to drag them across the floor for laughs. The lack of struggle in the scene is a clue.

    Haha one way to make headlines. I drag my kid across things all the time. He doesn’t care.

    It’s not fair. One girl is having fun and the other need to carry two backpacks and a carry-on.
