“Parents Tip 101: When your child is super hyper, one way to prevent them from getting lost in the crowd, Tie a Balloon as their Hairband….easy to spot them and good as a marker in the crowd…Hahahhaha,” Facebook user Syaf Ayu wrote on a post last Friday along with images of their daughter inside the store.
Indeed, the balloon has become an instant tracking device as it made the little girl quite easy to spot even as she wandered around the store aisles.  
It is worth noting, however, that the so-called “parenting hack” was merely done for a laugh and not intended to actually be used as the main method of monitoring a child in crowded areas. There is still no substitute in keeping a watchful eye on the little ones in public places.
