A mother and father tried to beat their daughter at her own game when they dressed up and copied her style.

In a TikTok skit shared by the user @emekaobiefoka, a young daughter comes out of her room and is ready to go to the cinema. She is dressed in hot pants and a sports bra, an outfit some may deem inappropriate for young women.

Behind the camera, the girl's mother asks her:

"Woah, where do you think you're going dressed like that?"

After the girl says she's going to the movies, she tells her mom that everyone dresses in that fashion. The mother, wearing a hoodie, says:

"Let me go and change into something then."

The video cuts to the girl on her phone waiting for her mother. The woman off-camera says she took clothing items — shorts and a sports bra — from her daughter's wardrobe. However, she is not the only one rocking the outfit.

The woman's husband emerges from their room, dressed in shorts and a sports bra, prompting his daughter to change her outfit.

Clinical psychologist explains effect of parents' actions

"With generational experiences, the world we live in today comes with more challenges and risks. This implies that parents need to, at times, be creative in their caregiving.
"Trying to reason sometimes as a parent can be met with defensiveness and arguments. So, in this example, the approach and creativity in the parenting helped the child reconsider their outfit."

Dr Tumi added that children are naive and that there needs to be a discussion of the need to be safe, consequences, self-awareness, responsibility, awareness of how the world can be cruel, and the young one to know that the parent loves them unconditionally.

The performance and life coach concludes:

"A relationship between parents and young ones is a dance. They have to work at it until they find their rhythm that works. In the end, parents need one voice together to be on some similar page with their child, allowing the child also to make mistakes, learn, grow and get up again."
