PARENTS have admitted they’re too self-conscious to play with their kids, with singing and dancing among the most 'embarrassing' activities.

Bolsonaro previously compared COVID-19 to a "little flu" and promoted hydroxychloroquine as medication, despite studies showing its inefficiency against the virus.

In the clip, Clarissa responds to a prompt from @annaxjames which says: "If you have worked for a large corporation like a chain of a restaurant or retail place, I want to hear all of the secrets that only employees would know."
