“Ohhhh I love this,” another TikToker complimented.

“At what age should I implement this?” If I put that down for my 14-month-old, she’d rip it off the table,” one parent asked, to which Mejia replied, “I did that when I was about 12. [months]! But it is very important to model it and set these limits.
