While video calling her father from a daycare in China, a 7-year-old girl began sobbing, worried that her father “works too hard and becomes too tired.”

Li Yanxi, who resides in Suzhou, Jiangsu of eastern China, was sent to summer daycare where a teacher organized an online video meeting for parents to observe the class and meet each other last week.

A video of the moment uploaded to Weibo on Saturday showed Li’s father, Li Mingxing, appearing on the screen among other parents wearing a safety helmet and worker’s uniform. The 7-year-old repeatedly calls out “Daddy!” shortly before her eyes began to fill with tears. As her teacher comforts her, Li tells her that she misses her father and is worried about him.

“Why are you missing your father? How long [has it been] since you’ve seen him?” the teacher asks in the video.

Li then bursts into tears and explains that she is worried about her father.

“It’s not [because I haven’t seen him for a long time],” Li says. “I am concerned that he works too hard and becomes too tired.”

The girl explained that her mother is a stay-at-home mom and that her father often works overtime as an electrician. She added that he works between 4 and 5 a.m. every day and hopes that he can stay healthy.

The video has garnered over 2.7 million views and 19,000 likes since being uploaded.
