In the viral video, Tiktok users @livenfamily demonstrate the “stroller tent” their son uses. 

The parents explained the “tent” set up, highlighting how they keep their son happy while they’re shopping.

They said: “He has toys, Disney plus and even snacks. 

“Now we are ready to shop.”

In the clip, we can see that the baby’s pram is topped with a towel, keeping him shielded from the hustle and bustle of the shops, and he has his own tablet, toys, and snacks to keep him entertained.

Many commenters, however, thought this approach was extreme.

“Or you could shop with your child, let it participate and not let it watch tv far too young”, wrote one critical commenter, while a second added: “That’s sick not going to lie.”

“Or you could let him watch the world around him and interact with him… helping his growth and development”, wrote a third.

Another added: “As an educator, don’t do this too often… Best to engage and teach the kid things while shopping… this is just a bit lazy.”

Another critical viewer added: “I work with children who lock daily living and social skills and I can say that this is part of the problem.”

Many, however, rushed to the parents’ defence. 

One commenter said: “People complain about kids running around in stores and crying really loud but also complain when the parent is trying to minimize the outcome of it happening.”

“Why are people judging a mom for keeping her kid occupied with a movie while she shops”, asked one supportive viewer.

“I love this”, wrote a second, while a third added: “I wanna go in there too.”
