It is very important for parents to keep their children away from harm, and sometimes all it takes to make them feel safe is to be calm and collected.


Joe Allen, a father from Paradise, California, gave the world a proper lesson in parenting while driving through walls of scary and intense flames.

As it can be seen on the video that is going viral on social media, Allen was able to calm his 3-year-old daughter by appearing confident and singing a little song.

Allen and his wife, Whitney, evacuated their Paradise home in order to escape the inferno of Camp Fire, which is currently the biggest and most dangerous active wildfire.



But, instead of hopping into just one car, it has been reported that Whitney drove the family's second vehicle with one of her daughters while Allen and Olivia, the 3-year-old, set out in the first.

While passing through the fiery scenery, little Olivia grew concerned about getting engulfed by the flames, but her father was quick to assure her that nothing bad would happen to them.



The video was recorded while they were heading for Chico, in California, and other cars can be seen heading in the same direction, most of them honking their horns as they tried to get ahead of each other.

In order to calm Olivia down, Allen sang a little song as they traveled down the road, passing by trees on fire and curtains of smoke. Several emergency vehicles can also be seen in the video.



At one point, father and daughter reach a clearer point of the road, which was when Olivia happily said 'You did it! You did it!'

So far, the flames have already claimed 31 lives and there are still 288 people missing, with 196,000 acres burned to ashes and 6,435 homes destroyed since the start of the inferno.
