The internet is welcoming the newest TikTok challenge to the family — the “Cuddle Your Toddler Challenge.” In contrast to previous problematic viral challenges, the latest trend has parents testing their young ones’ cuddling abilities. Right now, #cuddlechallenge has over 33 million views collectively.
In the challenge, parents approach their kids while they watch their favorite show. They sit near their distracted children in order to see how they react. Typically, parents initiate some form of cuddling. They either hug their child or put their heads in their child’s lap. As many can imagine, the results are quite heartwarming.
Kylie Jenner Joins the Challenge
Kylie Jenner is no stranger to trying out viral challenges with Stormi. Earlier this year, she tried out the “Patience Challenge” (also known as the “Candy Challenge”) with her daughter. Their latest viral challenge video joins many others as Jenner put Stormi’s cuddling skills to the test.
In the adorable video, Jenner walks up to Stormi sitting on the couch. Once she lays down on Stormi’s lap, Stormi immediately smiles and begins to pet her mom’s head. She can be seen mouthing, “Don’t be afraid mommy,” which Jenner added in the caption.
Wholesome Challenge, Wholesome Results
For the most part, the young ones “aced” the challenge and happily accepted their parents joining them to watch their favorite TV show.
However, not all kids were ready for some cuddle time. One TikTok user shared a video where her son promptly began using a plastic saw to swipe at her head once she joined him on the couch.
