Times Students' Parents Obviously Did Their Work

Sometimes people think it's the students that ae the most challenging part of a teacher's job. That's only true most of the time. It can actually be the parents trying to interfere too much with their kid's education. Sometimes a teacher can just look at a finished project and go, "looks like dad did a great job." Sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes teachers have no faith in students but they succeed anyway, like this student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.

Son Discovers Mom Lied About Allergies to Keep Him on Strict Diet

Modern life gives us a huge amount of liberty over our diets, and some diets are definitely more healthy than others. Often parents are trying to keep their kids safe and healthy as best they can, but it seems like lying to your kid about a life-threatening allergy isn't the right way to go about it. It's kinda reminiscent of these vegans who were called fake because they feed their cat meat. Sometimes the exact opposite of this happens, like when this Tumblr user realized they actually had allergies.

This dad asked the folks of Reddit whether or not he was in the wrong for encouraging his son to breakup with his partner, because of how dad felt about his own marriage.

Advice From Parents That Was Total BS

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to describe those tidbits of advice that they received from parents that ended up being total BS. While the advice from some of these parents might have been crafted with good (but deceptive...) intentions, the kids definitely went on to grow up into adults that saw it for what it was. Just a load of BS!

People's Experiences With Doomsday Prepper Parents

People are sharing their experiences with growing up with doomsday prepper parents, or people they've crossed paths with that were just convinced that the apocalypse was looming heavy around the corner. Can't imagine how that could affect a child's outlook on life, if they're growing up around stockpiles of food and other life essentials like the world was about to cave in on itself at any moment. Definitely a stressful environment.

Guy Confronts Son's Teacher For Teaching "Blue Blood" Myth

You remember learning that the reason veins can appear blue is cause deoxygenated blood turns blue? Well that's total horseshit. Your blood doesn't turn blue, and the reason your veins might look that way is because blue and red light travel though skin with different levels of success, so what's reflected back is a more bluish color. If you just learned this, you may be intrigued by these people who learned basic stuff way too late. Anyway, this dad asked if he was wrong for being really persistent with a teacher teaching the wrong thing.

Kids Freaking Out for Stupid Reasons

People assume it's easy to be a kid, like the whole "not working or paying taxes" thing. That said, a lot of us forget about the challenges of growing up. A lot of being a kid is learning how stupid you are, and discovering all the ways the world can disappoint you. These result in meltdowns over stupid things. Seriously, kids have a lot of dumb meltdowns.

Woman Catches Stalker-ey Helicopter Mom Peeping Through Her Window

It's good that parents are interested in the safety of their children, but holy crap this is some whack-ass behavior. This lady was caught leering like a ghoul through the window of her son's friend's house because she hadn't seen him in a few hours. Reminds us of this hyper-controlling helicopter mom who wanted to track her kid at college.
