12. That take some skills 

Even when the parent does exactly what the child asks, it’s surprising how it can still trigger a tantrum.


13. Well now you know 

@johntwoods: It’s like that, isn’t it? When you’re a kid, you chase pigeons, scare squirrels. But then you become an adult. And you look into the eyes of a squirrel, & see your own up-at-dawn pride-swallowing-siege of a life staring back at you. You have empathy. You give him a treat instead.


14. And she’d still get responses

15. So accurate 

When kids keep talking at bedtime, it’s like those annoying marketing emails that keep showing up even after you’ve unsubscribed from them.

16. It is an art

When it comes to emptying the trash, teenagers have a unique skill. Instead of taking it out when it’s full, they’ll keep cramming more garbage into it until it’s overflowing. It’s like a game to see how much they can fit in there without having to do the chore of actually taking it out.


17.  How dare you

My kid once got mad because it was Monday and she wanted it to be Tuesday. We argued back and forth until I told her: “I think I can make it be Tuesday but it will take a few hours.” Mind you, nothing special happens on Tuesday.


18. So creepy

19. It’s my personal hell

He’ll forgive you until the moment you mess up again and then you’re back in the doghouse and it all resurfaces.
