Recently, Noah Perchard and his mom went viral with several TikTok videos featuring him sneaking during her workouts and dancing with her while she wore a virtual reality headset. The wholesome videos have gone viral and people are now sending Perchard all kinds of requests for his video series.
Noah Perchard Went Viral Dancing
Fans of Perchard have given him many suggestions regarding what he should do when he sneaks into his mom’s workouts. In his videos, his mom comes into view while doing a VR workout. Unbeknownst to her, Noah would dance behind her for about 40 seconds before the video ends. The videos get progressively sillier and start featuring friends, various costume changes, and even a Spider-Man cameo.
The First Dancing Video Was Random
Apparently, Perchard and his mom were having a good feeling about the content they were making, though they weren’t expecting they would go so viral just by dancing. Perchard shared he recorded the first video randomly and then showed it to his mom. She first felt insecure about the way she looked in the video but eventually, she didn’t care what other people would think, so he uploaded it. The first of the videos that were uploaded gained over 10 million views on TikTok and quickly got over 1.7 million likes. There is a lot of support for Perchard’s mom in the comments, as well as ideas for Noah’s next videos.
Some people suggested Noah should get a disco ball and set up some lights to make the place a production while another commented that he had to get strobe lights. On day two of the series, the video featured strobe lights, so it seems Noah and his mom read the comments and are open to suggestions. Apparently, Perchard’s mom first approves all the videos before he uploads them. It looks like the two have a great relationship and the videos will keep going.
An Age-Based Guide to the Effects of Divorce on Children
It’s an unfortunate but unavoidable fact that marriage sometimes simply doesn’t work out. Two people can decide that it’s more beneficial to their happiness if they’re to part ways. It becomes a more complex topic if children are involved. In most cases, when learning that their parents are considering a divorce, children tend to feel sad and anxious. How will kids respond to the new family structure and is there a way to ease their transition? This simple guide might help.
The Effects of Divorce on Babies and Toddlers
Although they might not understand the words or have a way to express their thoughts, babies and infants can feel the tension between their parents and in their homes. When it comes to toddlers, their main bond is with their parents, and disruptions that a divorce can cause might be difficult for them to accept. Babies and toddlers might react to this shift by displaying more frequent emotional outbursts like crying and tantrums, having trouble going to sleep, irritability, and clinginess.
How Preschoolers Might React
When children are 3 to 6 years old, they won’t necessarily understand the concept and reasoning behind divorce but they likely won’t want their parents to separate, even if the situation at home is tense. They might feel like they have no control over the situation or the outcome, which can be quite difficult to deal with. It’s not uncommon for kids that age to think that they’re the cause of the problem. They might experience feelings of anger and uncertainty about the future.
Children 6 to 11 years old
Kids 5 to 8 years old are still unlikely to truly understand the concept of their family structure shifting. They might feel like they’re the ones losing a parent, maintain hope that their parents will reconcile, or even believe that they can help rescue the marriage. However, it’s not uncommon for kids ages 8 to 11 to blame one parent for the situation, choose sides, or express their anger by acting up at school or becoming withdrawn.
Easing the Transition
The truth is that divorce is something children of all ages will struggle with, but there are ways for parents to ease the transition for them. Make sure that babies and toddlers still have daily routines they can count on, extra attention, and plenty of quality time with parents.
In front of preschoolers, handle the separation in a positive and open manner, making sure their feelings are validated and ensuring regular visitation with both parents. With elementary-school kids, reassure them that neither parent is abandoning them and that the situation isn’t their fault. Spend quality time with them, encourage their interests, and uplift their self-esteem.
