In the video that the mother has shared on the social network, she says the following: “I only let my children watch cartoons if they are walking on the treadmill at the same time”, and adds: “Once my 11-year-old son he walked almost 26 kilometers ”, he has sentenced with a video of one of his children on the machine while looking at the drawings.

Many users of the social network have been inspired by this idea and have not only thanked, but have ensured that they will try it for their children and that they will also do it themselves to stay in shape while enjoying their favorite series.

Some users think that this idea can be harmful to children

However, this measure has sown controversy on TikTok, as many consider it necessary to let children be just children: “Why can’t children just be children? Why do they have to walk 26 kilometers to see television? ”, while another user has pointed out that this can cause trauma and need therapy in the future.

The mother has wanted to defend herself against the accusations by confessing that she wished her parents had done this with her, that it was a habit that she started herself when she was older and then transferred it to her children. In addition, he has assured that his children love doing it: “If they hated it or it was a problem, I would not force them,” he concluded.
