WHEN our children are ill, there are few things we wouldn’t try to make them feel better.
However, it seems as though one mum might have found the line some parents aren’t willing to cross, after sharing the way she deals with her son’s snotty nose.

Ronnie Abbott took to TikTok to post a video of the method she’d decided to use to clear her little boy’s congestion, alongside the caption: “No children were harmed in the making of this video.”
In the clip, she could be seen placing her mouth over her son’s mouth, before blowing hard.
“Blow into your child’s mouth really hard and all the snot will shoot out,” she wrote over the clip.
“It actually works!” she added.
And while one viewer praised Ronnie as a “true hero”, others were less than impressed with the idea.
“Not gonna lie… that’s gonna be a no for me,” someone wrote, while another person added, “I’m going to vomit”.
Others were quick to point out the danger involved in such a hack, commenting that blowing up a child’s nose could potentially cause damage to their lungs.

“Seriously where do people come up with this s**t… this is dangerous… not to mention gross,” someone wrote.
“This isn’t safe love – you can cause damage to their little lungs. It does help but it’s not worth the risks,” another person added.
Some other viewers commented that a nasal aspirator – readily available in chemists and large shops – does the same but in a much safer way.
