Dad sparks online debate after cradling daughter’s head for 45 minutes so she could sleep during a flight

These days, it’s not uncommon to find people arguing over one thing or another on the internet.

It was inevitable since it effectively pooled millions of people in the same place and gave them the freedom to express their thoughts and feelings. But no matter how contrary they may be, they were always going to generate hot debate.

While opinion-dividing pictures and videos are now considered the norm online, that doesn’t mean they’re not worth visiting each time they crop up. So, when I came across a picture taken of a father and his sleeping daughter on a plane journey—one, I might add, that has generated all manner of comments—we simply had to relay it…

The debate arose when Reddit user u/therra123 took to the thread r/MadeMeSmile to post a sweet moment captured between a dad and his daughter.

The user had uploaded an image of a girl curled up on her aisle seat on a flight. Instead of her head resting on the armrest—a rather crude and unforgiving pillow, I’m sure all who have experience with them will agree—her father had placed his hand under her cheek instead.

The accompanying caption on Reddit reads: “This man kept his hand in this position for 45 minutes so his daughter could sleep well.”

Now, at this point, we have to express our opinion that this doesn’t seem anything other than a dad performing his duties. The post was rightly tagged “wholesome moments,” but some Redditors didn’t feel the same way.

Incredibly, the father’s actions were criticized, with some people writing simply to say that he could have done it better.

The viral post garnered some 60,000 upvotes and thousands of comments, included replies such as:

“I feel like… I feel like there’s a better way.”

Another added: “Do you not have your towel? A towel is the most important thing you can carry.”

A third commented: “Shows a distinct lack of creative problem solving. 45 minutes, you say, and you couldn’t think of a practical solution. Huh!”

While a fourth wrote, “Seriously. Roll up a hoodie jacket and bam! Insta-pillow. Or here’s a crazy thought: ask a flight attendant for a blanket and pillow.”

Meanwhile, others were more sympathetic towards the dad and his gesture. Coincidentally, that’s the camp we find ourselves in too!

But how about you? Did you see anything wrong with the dad serving as a makeshift pillow for his daughter on this flight? Let us know in the comments.
