Parenting is hard, there's no doubt about it and tantrums are no exception.

But one little boy has captured the hearts of the internet this week. Scroll on for the incredible clip...

A mom posted a video of her 6-year-old son teaching his brother how breathe through a tantrum.


Be warned, your heart will melt at this video.

Now, as much as we love our children...

Raising them is an extremely testing experience.

Parenting is no walk in the park...

And teaching our children the rights and wrongs of life is very time consuming and it requires a lot of patience.

Every parent has experienced a full-blown tantrum...

Come to think of it, every parent, godparent, aunt or uncle, babysitter and beyond are probably well-acquainted with the tantrum.

Whether it's not getting what they want, or refusing to eat their dinner, children enjoy going into "full meltdown mode" when they don't get their own way.

They can be quite the hassle.

Tantrums are completely normal, though.


They're a natural part of child development. More worrying would be a kid that never got upset over stuff.

There's a general age range of between 1 and 3.


And that's because, at that age, kids are starting to develop their language skills - but they still don't have all the tools to adequately express what they feel, want, or need.

But, there could be something to help with tantrums...


...Breathing exercises.

A video shared online shows a 6-year-old boy teaching his brother, who is mid-tantrum, how to breathe through it.


And the internet is in awe of them...

Mom, Ashley, took to Twitter to share a video of her 6-year-old, Noah, helping his 4-year-old brother, Cory, through a tantrum.

He does this by teaching him how to use deep-breathing to divert his meltdown.

In the video, Noah can be heard telling this brother to "breathe."

While using his hands to demonstrate the motion of inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth.

At the end of the video, Noah says to his brother: "See? It helps you calm down."

Our hearts are melting.

Alongside the video, Ashley wrote: "My four-year-old was about to have a whole tantrum and my 6 year old helped him manage his breathing so he could calm down.... I'd say I'm doing freaking alright."

In a thread she also added: "Some of you asked why he was crying, he wanted to play the Nintendo — if you have kids or have been around any you know they think it's fully charged after being plugged for only a millisecond... anyway it wasn't and he started having a little meltdown til big bro intervened."

"Lol y'all would've LOST it had I recorded from the very beginning — My baby was all "I understand the pain I do but you just have to wait it's not done yet"."
