Angry Parent's Facebook Post About Their Daughter Getting Measles Calls Out Anti-Vaxxers

This rageful parent's emotional post about their daughter getting measles is as relevant a reminder to anti-vaxxers today, as it was, when it was posted back in 2015. The news is riddled with accounts of a measles outbreak, and the anti-vaxxers are being called out with renewed passion for their part in the upsurge of cases. Maybe this post will make a splash in the social media space, and inspire further discussion about the impacts of vaccination, or NOT vaccinating your children.

25 Allegedly Dire Parental Warnings That Turned Out To Be Total BS

If you grew up believing that sniffling would kill your brain cells, or crossing your eyes ran the risk of them remaining like that; then, you might benefit from this list.

If we're lucky, we grow up, and discover the truth for ourselves through that good 'ol life experience.

27 Times Parents Bested Their Kids with Reverse Psychology

Having kids is hard. I don't personally have any, but I was a kid once, so I can only imagine what my parents went through. Children have their own agenda, which includes eating candy for dinner and complaining if asked to help. As a parent, getting angry at your children probably isn't the most effective way to mould them into good human beings. But there's this thing called reverse psychology, and it's amazing. After reading the following posts from AskReddit, I realized that my own parents duped me with reverse psychology. Sneaky... and clever. Well done, parents.
