Toddler Gives His Dad the Most Adorable Playground Pep-Talk
At the ripe old age of two, one Georgia youngster already has the makings of professional motivational speaker.
What might be the most adorable pep-talk in history transpired last month when D'Anthony Ward took his son Taj to a park in Lawrenceville. The idea was to give the energetic toddler some space to run and play while their family was in the middle of a move.
Taj, reading his excuses as fear, began to encourage his dad. As the earnest pep-talk continued, Ward, a Dad Vlogger, started filming.
“You can do it, Dada! You can do it," Taj says in the now-viral video.
"I can't. I'm too big," Ward replied.
"You can do it! You put your foot right here," Taj countered. "Climb to me!"

"It's how I talk to him. I’ll say, "Come on, you can do it,'" Ward explained to Today. "He repeats everything he hears from me. Those lines are exactly what I say to him."
Ward said he's happy the video resonated with so many people.
“I like the narrative of it all. It’s a sense of representation and pride in being a dad, especially for me," he added. "I like to put these videos in story mode in digestible small pieces that are entertaining so people can absorb the story."
