As they say, “tough love goes a long way,” and it doesn’t just apply to man. In this story, a mother raccoon is trying to teach her child how to climb a tree. The patient mother raccoon used every style in her arsenal in order to teach the baby raccoon. But, just like a any toddler, the baby raccoon doesn’t seem to pay attention to the instructions from its mother.
The cute kit doesn’t seem to be interested in learning the art of climbing a tree even as its mother demonstrated it to the kit. After so many attempts, the kit was finally able to hang on to the tree trunk and climb on its own. As they say “mother knows best,” the baby raccoon may not be interested in climbing the tree now but it will surely thank its mother someday in the future.
Here’s the funny interaction of the most patient mother raccoon and its kit in pictures and gifs:
At first the patient momma puts her cub on the tree and tries pushing from below.
The mother holds the baby against the tree and begins using her arm to push the youngster. The baby responds to its mother trying to attach it to the tree by leaning backwards and refusing to climb.
Out of idea, she turns to the camera man for help.
The raccoon tries another approach by leaving the baby on a roof and demonstarting how to climb.
Mom demonstrates the proper form, but the little guy isn’t even paying attention!
The mother picks the baby raccoon up in its mouth and reattaches it to the tree while holding onto it for support.
Finally after some more practice, success!
