Pretty much since the moment they are born, kids these days have learned that screens and technology are just a normal part of every day life! And yet, it seems so surprising and funny to watch them imitate their caregivers, and interact with the same gadgets as if they were adults too.
One such video that’s going viral on the internet, has to do with a very cute baby boy named Parker who finds his parents’ remote lying on the living room table. Parker, who looks like someone who has just recently mastered his walking, already seems to know what the remote is for.
Right away Parker points the black remote towards the wall with the TV. Not having mastered the buttons however, nothing turns on and this truly seems to throw off the little boy. Clearly, he isn’t the one who gives up so easily though, as we watch him pace around the room trying to figure out just what the remote is for!
He continues to point it in all directions of the living room; presumably hoping that something will turn on. And when still nothing happens, he knows just what to do with the “broken” remote. Much to his mother’s surprise!
Whatever the research says about kids and technology, one thing that is clear from this video is that it doesn’t stop children from being good observers. There is some comfort in knowing that parents and caregivers are still the ones that the kids try to emulate.
Following his parents footsteps when something doesn’t seem to work, Parker knows just what to do. In his striped bodysuit he turns around, as his mom follows closely behind with her camera. He promptly walks over to the kitchen and spots the garbage can, which is bigger than Parker himself.
He then opens the lid with his tiny hand and drops the remote inside. The remote is clearly broken because he wasn’t successful in turning on the TV. As mom watches on she can’t help but laugh out loud. The sight is just too funny.
And in Parker’s case, at least his parents will know just where to look when things go missing around the house!
Here is the hilarious video showing sweet baby boy Parker.
