YouTube video description
When an infant is crying and the mother seems oblivious to the misery that her crying brat is causing in those around her, I feel like choking the baby to death.
There`s a technique called The Hold that looks like a chokehold, but it`s guaranteed to calm a crying baby.
It`s similar to the technique used to render a cat immobile while you bathe it: Pinching a cat by the neck.
For the sake of everyone`s sanity I urge all mothers to learn this technique.
