Does it bother you when parents mouth what their kid says while he/she talks?

take a look at this video, please.[at 0:38 seconds]
YouTube - Leighanne & Baylee Littreel - RTL Hessen - Interview

this kid is 7 y.o. He's very agile and he can say things on his own without the need to prepare them at first.
But it bothers me that his mother[though a total sweetheart] is mouthing almost every single word he says, at the same time. :shifteyes:
i mean, i have got nothing against mouthing[it's normal up to a point], but this is a bit exaggerated. you'd think he prepared this at first. i'm not sure because as i said he's very so improvising.

yeah. as i previously said, it's not uncommon but it was weird that she was mouthing every single word, in real time though the speech may have not been prepared. (and i'm sure it wasn't. i know the way that kid is lol.)

i wouldn't call it an issue. i just find it weird that a parent mouths every single word, at the same time while kid is talking.
sometimes it makes the kid looks a dummy, like they tell him what to say when it's totally the opposite. the kid in the video is so nimble that he doesn't need anyone to tell him what to say in front of the camera. just let the kid talk on his own. there's no need to mouth THAT MUCH.

are you getting my point?

Meh, of course there's no need, but her natural instinct as a mother allows her to mouth the words as well.

I think it's lovely....but if it annoys you than to each their own I guess.

Ahhhhh....from that point of view I can see where you guys are coming from.

I guess it does diminish the kid in some weird way, but it's not really intentional.
