Mother and child sit out an earthquake

Mother and child sit out an earthquake

(1:22) In an amazing display of control, a mother shows how to keep your head when all around you is mayhem. From YT: "My daughter lives in Sendai, Japan and had just finished lunch at a restaurant on 3-11-11 when the 9.0 earthquake struck. The video was made by Hiroki, a 15 y.o. friend of the family. The video starts after the quake had already been going on for a while and stops prior to the end of the quake. Tiffany pulled her 4 y.o. son across the table to help comfort him prior to the video starting. Note the changes in the intensity of the quake and the loss of electrical power. The area where this video was taken was not affected by the tsunami."

This makes me rage. This child will grow up now fearing nothing instead being lulled into a false sense of security by that fruitcake of a mother. If I were to work for child services, which I don't, I would be rounded up to be mad at this lady's lackadaisical attitude toward such extreme danger. At the very least she should be making the child aware that the situation is dangerous, not just cuddling the innocent child with glee in some sort of a mental state.

Richard-ever been in a quake ? I have. Ever done anything exception and had it put on the net as a tribute to your courage? she has. Now go back to your little life and continue to look under rocks for things to complain about because thats what makes you feel less insignificant

Richard, just because she doesn't panic doesn't mean she's not afraid. Keeping your head while in danger is a valuable skill. Scaring the sh*t out of a four year old isn't going to accomplish anything. She'll have plenty of time later to teach him safety, but she's doing to right thing for the situation by keeping him calm(although she probably should have gone under the table).

That's what I was thinking too. She did the wrong thing. If she wanted to save the child's life, she should have protected him better. The ceiling could have collapsed and killed both of them.

I think we can retire the Mother of the Year trophy for all time. If courage is grace under pressure, as Hemingway said, she was courageous.
