Once a cranky toddler has gotten to a certain point, however, it can get a whole lot trickier. Luckily for Lauren Paley and Daniel Cutchens, they have an impressive trick up their sleeves.

This trick is one that Lauren showcases in a video shared on social media. In it, these parents explain that their toddler got cranky during a car ride. To help their little one calm down, Lauren and Daniel choose a method that has worked in the past: singing in the car! Watch them beautifully serenade their toddler in the video below.

As you can tell from that video, Lauren and Daniel have rather impressive singing voices! This is something their toddler clearly agrees with because, in no time, they finally calm down. Because, honestly, how can you not be entranced by this duo’s sweet voices?
