A parent who loses sight of a child--a huge fear.
Their natural instinct might be shouting their kid’s name and hoping for a response. However, a mom on TikTok is thanking the social media platform for a way more effective and efficient way to locate a lost child in a crowd. Krista Piper Gundrey — a TikTok content creator and mother — explained how a parenting hack she saw years ago helped her locate her three-year-old child during a visit to a science museum with a crowded play area.
When she realized that she didn’t have eyes on her three-year-old, she immediately began to call out her name to no avail. That’s when she remembered a TikTok she had seen where a mom had also lost her child and gave alternative — and more helpful — advice than just frantically yelling your kid’s name.
“It was of a mom who had lost her kid in, I believe, a grocery store. And instead of yelling out the kid's name, she yelled out the description of what her child was wearing. And she was able to find her kid way faster. So that is what I did,” she said.
After getting comments about her tip he followed up: i love that people are tagging other peope that have posted on the topic of what to do if your child goes missing! The more people that know what to do the better! So thankful other moms knew what I was doing!
