A father-daughter relationship is among the most special bonds in the world. A modern dad not only treats his daughter like a princess but will also encourage her to be strong and resilient. Roland Pollard and his daughter Jayden provide the latest evidence for that. A short video of the two recently went viral, giving social media all sorts of parenting goals. It shows four-year-old Jayden practicing cheerleading stunts with her father, until midway, she falls and begins to cry. Pollard takes her up in his arms and gently encourages her to not lose heart and try again. Wiping her tears, she attempts the stunt once more. This time, she succeeds, and how!

Pollard can be seen instructing her step-by-step throughout the video so that Jayden can ace her acrobatics without fear. The video is befittingly captioned, “How to bounce back after a fall- We don’t hit every stunt we throw, but we always end on a good note! #thatsmybaby.”

Here is the video of the duo that has garnered over one million views on Instagram:
