Teaching your children to feed themselves without help can be a messy, difficult endeavor.
The lesson, which is comprised mostly of trial and error, often ends with more food on the floor than it does with food actually going into the toddler’s mouth. However, every parent must learn the patience of making their child self-sufficient. After all, we can’t feed our children their whole lives and ensure they’re always dependent on us.
However, one Mom must have the patience of a wizard when she taught her daughter, who was born without hands, how to eat with her feet. Despite her tiny toes, we’re sure this lesson was no small feat.
Mom, Elmira Knutzen who lives in Russia with her daughter Vasilina, posted the video to Facebook to be a source of inspiration. The video went viral and has now been viewed more than 57 million times.
The inspiring video shows us that we can achieve anything we set our minds to. You don’t need arms to eat with a spoon. Instead, any of us can learn how to do anything we desire, as long as we’re willing to adapt to the process.
