“That’s not how you get a girl,” a four-year-old stressed in her viral video response to the boy who catcalled her while she was relaxing at a track.
On Twitter, her mother Velinda Silva uploaded the clip which the little one recorded herself after what happened.
“My four-year-old is literally a teenager,” she captioned the video; which already has more than 67,000 retweets, over 231,000 favorites, and nearly 3.5 million views, as of writing.
Beginning to tell her story, the young girl shared that she was just relaxing at a track when a boy tried to caught her attention in a way that displeased her.
“So, we were at the track and I was just relaxing and a boy was trying to get me over there and said, ‘Ca-caw! ca-caw!’ That’s not how you get a girl to get over there. You have to use the manners,” she said.
“And he was saying, ‘Meow, meow, meow, meow!'” she continues. “Why would you do that to a girl? You don’t call girls over like that. Okay, guys? Whoever I’m talking to, I don’t care. I don’t care who I’m talking to. And if I don’t know you, if it’s Janice or my teacher, it will be fine. But if it’s a stranger, I’m gonna stop.”
A lot of social media users found her words relatable, saying the little one really has a point when she lectured all the boys out there on the proper way of getting a woman’s attention. One of them told the mother that her kid will surely be a strong woman when she grows old–thanks to her, of course.
“Your daughter will be a strong woman, and strong women will always scare/distress/worry *BOYS*. BOYS is the keyword here, *NOT MEN*. My dad raised two girls and always said, ‘I’m not worried about my daughters, you should worry about your sons.’ We need more moms like you!” @x_shug tweeted.
