There is something about Indian parents that sets them apart from all other parents in the world. However, a conversation on Twitter has now thrown light on the fact that they are not very different from ethnic households in other nations after all.
A tweet by user @dugsi_dropout has started a conversation about parents reacting to their children falling sick and netizens can totally relate to it.
“In ethnic households, if you laugh while being sick, ur no longer sick,” read the tweet, which soon started a trend on the microblogging site.

If you eat while being sick, you might as well do the dishes

If ur not found in bed then you are not sick. If you are not in excruciating pain then you are not sick. If you smile for even a second then you are not sick. If you’re sick then you are not sick. For my mother it is as simple as that. pic.twitter.com/0XEGuWC6CG
