Stand up comedian Jennifer Fulwiler reminds us to show a little more compassion.

Jennifer Fulwiler, a professional stand up comedian who is also a Catholic convert and mother of six, recently released a video on flying with kids that many parents are relating to, and the video went viral on TikTok.

The timing of her video couldn’t be better. With summer vacations on the horizon, parents will be gearing up to take their kids on those stress-ridden flights. Fulwiler makes some valid points and captures the angst of a mom dealing with a demanding/crying child while trying not to disturb disapproving passengers.

While we won’t give the whole sketch away, her requests for compassion and help at the end of the video strongly resonate. Society needs to be kinder and to welcome babies and young children into all aspects of daily life. And passengers can be more supportive in already stressful situation, and embrace the blessing that children truly are.

So have a look at the relatable video below, and remember, we’re in this together!
