Parents Reveal Most Expensive Things Their Children Ruined By Mistake

Having kids is a true blessing, but sometimes they can test our patience to unhealthy levels. For example, one thing that young children aren't so good at is understanding the value of money or valuables. So when they accidentally break something expensive or irreplaceable, unfortunately, you can't be too mad at them. Parents of Reddit have revealed the most expensive things their children ruined by mistake and I can only imagine the self-restraint they had to exercise in order to not kill their kids on the spot!

Pictures Which Prove Kids Can Fall Asleep Anywhere

That familiar feeling when the tiredness hits, your eyes start closing, and there's nothing you can do to fight it. We've all been there — most likely in the middle of a work meeting — and the struggle is real. If only we could take a quick ten-minute power nap to give us that energy booster necessary to see us through the rest of the day. But alas, napping is frowned upon in the workplace, and so coffee will have to suffice. But one of the perks of being a toddler includes being able to nap whenever the moment calls for it, and these kids show us how strong the force is! Whether you're lying in a pile of lego (ouch) or sitting on the toilet, once the sleepy's hit, there's nothing you can do about it.

Ways Parents Tricked Their Young Children Into Loving Reading

If your kids love reading, it's essential to do everything you can to encourage that passion. But anyone with kids will know that anything they perceive to be your idea, they automatically don't want to be a part of, even if it will benefit them. So one dad, Professor. Robert McNees shared his trick on how to get his daughter to love reading, using reverse psychology. He Tweeted, "Somehow, I've lucked out and have an 8yo who thinks secretly reading under the covers past her bedtime is an act of rebellion, and it hasn't yet occurred to her that her flashlights never seem to run out of batteries."

This simple life hack inspired others to Tweet the ways their parents duped them into becoming bookworms too, and it seems like it's quite a common phenomenon. Kids love reading, and parents love it when their children read; if only they could work together towards a shared goal without the need for trickery!

Being a teacher is one of the noblest professions - being underpaid and overworked, to ensure that the next generation gets an education. But it's also a profession that comes complete with its challenges, including dealing with little kids' pettiness. Tattletales are an inevitable part of working with children, but sometimes teachers are presented with simply ridiculous scenarios. A Reddit thread asking teachers for the stupidest reasons a kid has told on someone else will provide you with endless entertainment and make you feel sorry for the teachers who had to mediate the scenarios these kids presented to them. Kids, eh?

Awkward Texts That Were Sent To Parents By Mistake

Everyone knows and can relate to the anxiety caused by sending a text to the wrong person. Whether it's to your boss, an ex-boyfriend, or sending a text about someone to that person by mistake, these slip-ups can cause a mini heart-attack each time. But perhaps the worst is when you send a text to your parents containing some sort of sexually explicit message that was clearly meant for someone else. The stress that causes, is another level, and reading through these texts can give you a taste of just how bad some kids have put their foot in it.

Woman Creates Inspiring Custom Lookalike Dolls For Kids With Disabilities

Amy Jandrisevitz, a woman from Wisconsin is creating incredible lookalike dolls for children with disabilities and illnesses in an attempt to help them feel less alone. The doll maker's incredible journey started five years ago when she was approached by a mom who asked her to customize a unique doll for her daughter who unfortunately lost a leg due to an amputation. From there, she continued receiving requests and eventually started a nonprofit called "A Doll Like Me". Although each doll costs $100, Amy covers any expenses that parents can't afford out of her own pocket. The aim is to stop children who have skin, limb, or facial differences to feel ostracized. Here are some of Amy's incredible creations.

Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Z... the olden days... where do these new definitions end?

These tweets perfectly sum up the differences between growing up in our parents and grandparents' time, vs today and they're funny, relatable, and accurate (if not a little depressing).
