As a parent, trying to calm down a temper tantrum in public is one of the toughest parts of the job. If that’s a struggle of yours then you should follow the example of this creative father. His daughter was right on the verge of tears when she heard the noise coming from her squeaky shoes. It only took a few seconds before she was laughing so hard she forgot what she was even mad about.
Maybe squeaky shoes can be the answer to any tense situation. Imagine what the government could get done if every politician had to wear squeaky shoes in congress? Or if every commuter had squeaky shoes on the subway? That is the world I want to live in.
