The dad you’re about to meet is on vacation with his wife and two kids in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. But just as the rest and relaxation set in, his kids had a major meltdown.

Georgia and Genevieve were upset when their mom left the hotel room for a few minutes too long. One sister started to cry and scream, which spurred the other sister to start crying and screaming, too. As sisters do.

Dad was left to pick up the pieces and attempt to restore the energy back to vacation mode. The pair of sisters had a lot to get out of their system and it was clear they weren’t going to give up that easy.

Luckily for him, he knew exactly what he needed to do to calm the situation.

In a video originally published by the New York Post, he films his clever technique (masked as a fun little game) while standing over a couple of very fussy and stubborn toddlers.
