A new trend on TikTok is the #PatienceChallenge in which people test the restraint of their child or pet.

The challenge, that is also being called the chocolate challenge or fruit snack challenge, has parents place the child’s favourite snack in front of them and tell them not to eat it until they return from another room.

The camera then records the child’s reactions. A variation of this challenge is doing the same thing with pets:
