Stunned kid stops crying after seeing mum outcry her
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a baby girl had stopped crying after her mum outcried her.
Instead of petting the crying baby, the mum had positioned before the child and fake-cried loudly.
She got drool from her mouth and rubbed it on both sides of her face as if shedding tears. Then, perhaps startled by her mum's unusual response, the kid stopped crying and watched the mum keenly.
