16 Times Tri-State Kids Made Their Parents Question Their Parenting Skills
Raising kids is not only the hardest job on the planet, it can also be quite the adventure featuring surprise twists and turns, some of which leave you questioning where you went wrong.
On Monday morning, I shared a story about my son that happened over the weekend where he, quite nonchalantly, told my wife and I that he had a salsa stain on his pants from the taco he had in his pocket before the Boonville football game. Yep, at some point he got a soft taco, didn't finish it, and decided to save it for later by wrapping it in foil and shoving it into his pants pocket because why not?
I was pretty confident that we aren't the only parents to have a kid do something, let's say, "beyond the realm of reason" that makes you question not only their decision making, but your ability as a parent. So we asked you to share similar stories on our Facebook page of when your kids said or did something that just left you shaking your head. You did, or I guess I should say, your children did not disappoint.
Like this one who overestimated how much power the human body is capable of producing.
Or this one who doesn't quite grasp the concept of "twins."
Or this future cyber criminal.
There's this 20-year-old "child" that was just ready to party.
And this one who has a unique way of making things disappear like a young David Copperfield.
How? Just how? And let's throw in a "Why?" while we're at it.
There's this kid who isn't afraid to tell it like it is.
And this one who had their fill of the good Lord for the day.
There's this one who indirectly told Dad he needs to lay off the cheeseburgers.
And this one who enjoys mentally torturing his teachers.
I don't even know what to say to this one.
Finally, these resourceful young tykes, who, like my 15-year-old son, apparently want to be prepared whenever their stomachs start to growl.
It's tough being a parent sometimes, but hopefully this stories will help you understand it's not just you, we all have those moments where we are left speechless or just shaking our heads at something our kids decided was a good idea at the time.
