"I have a three-year-old who's very inspired by HER president,"

We asked parents to tell us what their children think of the pandemic and the lockdown and KZN mom Fatima couldn't resist sharing her little motivating tot, Mehran's adorable messages to both the country and "her president."

"I have a three-year-old who's very inspired by HER president," Fatima told Parent24. 

Fatima and Mehran didn't just thank the president, they even had a few kind words for essential workers too. 

And the tot isn't afraid to dish out a bit of tough love to the more stubborn citizens not sticking to the rules of lockdown, urging them to "please listen!"

Watch her pep talk below or on Facebook

Here's a look at some of Mehran's cute messages: 

'My president, my leader'
