The video first shows them acknowledging each other. "Good morning Mr. Daddy," says the daughter. "Good morning Miss Jacksyn," replies Damion with a warm smile. "How are you feeling today," asks the little girl. "I am feeling lovely today. How about you?" asks Damion. "Me too," replies Jacksyn before asking her dad if he slept well at night. Then, as per their routine script, Jacksyn excitedly yells through the street, reminding everyone that they're "Outside!" As they ride on their cycle, Damion ensures he greets and wishes everyone he comes across while addressing them as "king" and "love." Damion reminds his daughter that he loves her and affirms her with a lot of positivity.
Can we also acknowledge the greetings: “Good morning, my brother,” “Blessings, King,” etc? Everything about this is beautiful.— X (@RobinXShabazz) June 9, 2023
This is absolutely beautiful!! I also remember time spent with my father as a child. I hold them near to my heart. God bless them and all fathers fulfilling their role and responsibilities.— Stanley Studios (@410Studios) June 10, 2023
"I want you to know that everybody loves you. Your mommy, your grandma, uncle Harry, Didi, your pops, Ocean, Zendaya, Kenzie, Rylie, Shawn, your best friends, the rest of your family, your cousins, your uncles, your Godparents. Everybody loves you 'cause you're awesome. Your skin is amazing. You can do anything if you put your mind to it," he tells her.
Jacksyn returns the blessings by saying, "Make sure you have a beautiful day at work." Her dad replies, "I will make sure, 'cause you told me to. Make sure you have an amazing day at school. Make sure you listen, pay attention, make friends and learn as much as possible."

Children's self-esteem can be affected by a variety of factors—such as criticism, bullying or even failure—as they grow and navigate the world around them. This is where parental guidance and support come into play, and one mom on TikTok has found a creative yet straightforward way to empower her daughter and promote her self-worth.
Tara, a mother from Michigan with a child named Evy, engages in a daily affirmation practice with her daughter. Tara and Evy take turns repeating positive affirmations to themselves as they stand in front of a mirror, preparing for the day ahead. During their morning affirmations, Tara and Evy cover a wide range of positive statements that focus on different aspects of Evy's life. Evy repeats phrases relating to her intellect, such as "I am smart," and her physical appearance, such as "I love my body."
