It never occurred to us before just how freaking cute learning to walk up a ramp could be.

Instead of “Oh no!” The Young and the Restless’ Elizabeth Hendrickson said “Oh yes!” on April 28, giving a remix to the Tik Tok Oh No Challenge by posting a video of 1-year-old daughter Josephine stumbling on and off a backyard ramp until at last she nailed it.

The actress’ suggestion to other parents? “Let them figure it out. Leaving this ramp in a safe spot allowing her to explore every edge has made her a pro in just a couple days,” she said. “Not once would you hear me say ‘Oh no’ like the song played here or ‘Oops’ when she fell.

“Try ‘I saw you miss that step’ instead,” she continued. “I’ve never held her hand up the ramp or stood next to her to assist her in any way. Help give them the confidence to figure it out on their own. Allow them to fall! Safely, of course.”

Trust them!” she added. “They can do it.”
