Son With Heroic Willpower Outsmarts Parents' Sticker System

When trained the mind can be a beautiful instrument. Even without the training it's as if some of us are born with a bit more willpower than others. Sometimes that willpower can end up showing itself at a very young age. Especially during those toddler years that are already susceptible to all kinds of tomfoolery. There's something about kids during those years where they just can't be bothered to give a dang. This kid certainly showed off some impressive willpower. They're clearly going places.

Babysitter Makes Parents Pay For Items Damaged By Unsupervised Kid, Asks If She's In The Wrong

Honestly, it sounds like the parents are the ones in this unfortunate scenario who really engineered the ultimate unwanted outcome. They knew when the babysitter was going to have to dip, and ultimately didn't make good on the agreed upon time. From there, it's pretty natural for the young ones in this world to get all kinds of mischievous and stir up trouble. It seems like most folks in the comments section were in agreement that this one doesn't fall on the babysitter.

Twitter Thread: Strict Parenting Sets Kids Up For Failure

It's not completely outside the ordinary to see people end up acting like little rascals in response to the airtight confines of strict parenting. There's something hardwired into so many of us that creates a situation where we find ourselves rebelling just for the sake of being defiant. So, you put a kid in an environment where they're regularly being told what they can't do, with little room being left for them to let their wings fly, and you've pretty much got a situation ripe for rule breaking behavior. Naturally, this Twitter thread about how strict parenting can have the capacity for setting kids up for failure later in life, made some waves on Twitter.

Mom Has Lapse In Judgment, Buys Children Tons Of Mentos And Coke, Chaos Ensues

Mom's heart was in the right place. The only problem is that she might've been blinded by the love she clearly has for her children. Because, dude, Coke and Mentos is a literal recipe for disaster. And then you throw in a bunch of hyperactive kids? Oh, the end times have arrived. Hopefully mom was able to get the situation under control, and is able to impart her hard-earned wisdom upon anyone other parents in her social circle that (somehow) might not know better. 

Mom makes a grave mistake, ends up buying her kids a ton of Mentos and Coke.

Dad Charges Ex $100 To Babysit On Custody Day

At first glance, you'd probably go ahead and assume that the dad was very much so in the wrong, but upon closer inspection it becomes glaringly evident that there's a whole lot more dysfunctional nonsense afoot within the relationship dynamic. Probably best to just hard reject the next time around.

Dumbest Lies People's Parents Told Them

Parents tell their kids some pretty absurd lies. And it's not even like that's something bad parents do. There are so many mild but weird things we were told that we just ended up believing. Sure, there was the classic "it's illegal to turn on the light in the car" but there was so much more than that. There were long lost cousins, jokes we just never got and impossible rules. Sure, kids are kind of stupid and weird, but this one was more on the parents.

Entitled Karen Steals Customer's Drinks, Instant Karma Ensues

It's hard to believe that people like the Karen in this story actually exist, but oh boy, they're out there. They're out there just waiting to pounce on an otherwise peaceful environment, and sink their hungry claws and entitled claws into things like other customers' drinks. The thing about confronting someone who is clearly irrational beyond repair, is that they'll oftentimes end up getting all the more defensive when you call them out on their antics. We're just glad that things kind of worked out in this story. Was definitely giving off some malicious compliance vibes as well.
