(Daily Mail) As Americans get ready to sit down with their family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner this year, there is one topic many of them hope to avoid: politics.
‘So Thanksgiving is coming soon, and you’re dreading people arguing over politics. C’mon people! I have a solution for you,’ she said at the start of her 30-second video.
Instead of asking guests to not bring up politics and hoping that they oblige, she came up with a fitting punishment for those who broke her rule.
TikTok creator Neko Ashi has revealed her brilliant hack for avoiding arguments about politics at Thanksgiving dinner
She advised announcing at the beginning of dinner that anyone who brings up politics will be seated at the children’s table and have to entertain them for the rest of the night (stock image)
‘Announce at the beginning of dinner that anybody who brings up politics in any way, shape, or form will be seated at the children’s table,’ she advised.
To add insult to injury, they will also ‘be responsible for entertaining the kids for the rest of the night.’
‘That should keep their mouths shut,’ she said.
She ended the video by wishing everyone a ‘Happy Thanksgiving.’
‘The holidays are stressful enough. Don’t let politics make them worse!’ she added in the caption.
The hack would likely work in big households, but one commenter noted that they didn’t have any young children at their celebration.
A few also pointed out that the younger generations could be worse than the adults when it came to starting political debates.
‘We don’t have any kids. My Gen Z son would rip his nana apart if she tried it so she’s smart enough to keep her trap shut (hopefully),’ one person responded.
