TikTokers are sharing the things they do that would be considered unhealthy as part of the “My Child Is Completely Fine” TikTok trend.The audio consists of a voice saying “F*ck you, my child is completely fine,” followed by a snippet of The Seatbelts and Gabriela Robin’s “Cats On Mars.” Many of these TikToks poke fun at parents who didn’t notice that their children had mental illnesses or were neurodivergent. The sound is named to reflect that.

The audio was initially shared by creator @einssuh in a Nov. 29 TikTok. She used the sound to illustrate her parents defending her against teachers who thought her behaviors should be addressed due to her tendency to eat erasers, rip out her hair, and bite other people. The video received over 157,000 likes and 1.3 million views.

Sometimes you get so used to being feral that you forget how much more unhinged you used to be
