Traveling is challenging enough for people without kids, but add small children in the mix and the difficult task becomes even more stressful.
That’s why many parents said they could relate to one fed-up father traveling through Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia with his daughters on New Year’s Day, reports FOX 10.
A videographer, who recorded a man holding a duffle bag in one hand and a little girl’s hood in the other, wrote in the clip’s description.
I was waiting at Dulles International Airport to pick up my girlfriend on New Year’s Day when I noticed this father literally dragging his daughter through the airport by the hood of her jacket.
She wasn’t screaming or anything, just hanging out while another girl, presumably her sister, was walking 20 feet behind her out of embarrassment.

While some questioned the dad’s decision and called his actions “child abuse,” one commenter wrote:
All I can think of is all the nasty germs on that floor. As a parent I get it But gross. Just gross.
Many were surprisingly supportive of the father and wrote in the comments section:
Only people without kids would think this is child abuse!…. Dad’s done playin games lol id like to buy this guy a ?.
The dad has since been praised online for pulling the little girl through the terminal. Many parents said the video was so relatable:
Me before children seeing this: ‘can you believe this parent? How awful I would never do that.’ Me after having children: ‘dude i feel ya carry on!'”
As much as I wanna say this is bad … I wanna say This is me and I feel his struggle … We as parents have to get creative at times.
We all have been there…..
The video has been viewed more than 7.9 million times. The little girl being dragged did not appear to be acting out.
It’s unknown whether she asked to be pulled.
