Woman Refuses To Provide Inheritance Money To Sister Who Needs Post-Cancer Surgery

You can find a whole lotta love within families, but you could also find a whole lotta drama in 'em too. Some families are super wholesome, some are batsh*t crazy, and some fall somewhere in the middle. On Reddit's infamous 'Am I The A**hole' thread, we're analyzing quite the complicated family this week. The story begins with two sisters - one a mother, the other one childless - plus she's never having on planning kids and frankly isn't a fan of children at all, including her sister's kids. To make a long story short, the sister's parents only allowed access to the inheritance money to their kids that had children, so when they passed on, the childless sister received none of the inheritance money. She asked her sister to lend her some money for surgery after her battle with cancer, alas she's not exactly in a giving mood considering her sister's nasty attitude towards her children.

Parents Trying Not To Be Furious At Their Kids For Ruining Their Expensive Things

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!

Mom Explains How She Dealt With Her Young Daughters' Rudeness, Twitter Says 'Yas Queen'

Being a mother, or a guardian in general, is not an easy job. Every experience is a major learning experience for your child, and you have to try to model for them what it means to be a kind and honest person. Basically, you don't get a break. But some parents definitely seem to have it all figured out, like Dr. Chae, an educator, and mother, equipped with a beautiful amount of patience. She has received much praise for being direct and asking her daughter why she was behaving rudely. The way she got on her daughter's level while speaking with her was very impressive to the Twittersphere.

Childfree Woman With Demanding Job Upset At Moms For Claiming Monopoly On Tiredness

We all have that one friend who just cannot stop 'sneak-bragging' about how overwhelmed they are, how they just barely have enough time to eat or sleep or exercise. Yet it seems as though they really make the time to tell you all of this, literally every single day. And of course, they never ask you about your life and your duties, because they're so cute and little compared to hers. You couldn't possibly understand what it's like to be tired! Why is it always a competition of who is busier? I know this must be making you think of somebody.

Before we get into this aggravating 'Am I The A-hole' post, if you feel pissed off already and want to scream, feel free to let it all out.

Teachers Unveil The New Trendy Cliques That Run High Schools Today

The trends are constantly changing and, whether we like to admit it or not, it is the youths who decide what is in and what is out. In middle and high school you can see the trends directly manifested into friend groups, and it is only natural that those groups are ever-changing. Some cliques remain forever, like stoners and nerds, but many other styles, like emo, scene, and punk can only be found in 90's coming-of-age movies or in expensive 'vintage' shops residing in gentrified neighborhoods. Only those who have the budget have the power to revive them.

If you're also curious about what trends divide the youths today this Reddit thread has got you covered.

Funny Tweets From Parents About The Nightmare Of Play-Doh

It takes a lot to make sure your kids stay entertained. Sure, TV works great, but even the laziest of parents will admit that there is such a thing as too much screen time. Play-Doh has provided children with creative entertainment for years, but it has also brought parents endless hours of pain. Many parents will be familiar with the horror of watching their kids smush all the Play-Doh colors together to make one big brown mess as soon as they've opened the packs. Or of finding it squashed into the carpet, which is impossible to get out. Then, there's finding dried Play-Doh in every crevice of the house, months after its initial use. In short, Play-Doh's new marketing campaign should be "Kids love it, parents hate it," as is shown by these Tweets from parents.

People Who Made Their Parents Want To Return Them

Half of our job as children is to disappoint our parents. It's in our nature, what better is there a way to show them that we love them? We simply need to make embarrassing mistakes so that when we don't severely f**k something up, they can be proud! Do you see? Genius. This is what growing up is all about. Life is much more bearable when you realize that your parents are just people who decided to get down and dirty and bring more people into this world. There are definitely some boundaries that I prefer to keep with my parents, but they definitely get crossed on the regular. Oh well.

If you've ever thought to yourself, "Damn, I'm a disappointment," you might relate to these Tweets.

People Tweet The Most Ridiculous Things They Thought When They Were Younger

We are all super curious when we are young. The world is full of mysteries and unless somebody explains something to us very early on, we often make our own conclusions. Since children tend to have unlimited imaginations, such conclusions can get very creative. The only unfortunate part is that we may begin to develop our own facts that have no substance, kind of like politicians. Then when we're adults we get to re-learn the things that once seemed so clear to us. It's just one of the many fun parts of growing up.

If your imagination also used to run wild when you were a child, you might find many of these Tweets relatable.

Funniest Tweets From Parents Who Caught Their Kids When They Were Up To No Good

Every parent knows that you can never really get a break. Sure you can say, "Hey kids, Mommy is taking a nap, play nice!" But how much sleep can you really get knowing that these devil children have the whole house to themselves? The traumatic scenarios that could ensue are limitless. You can baby proof a house all you want, but once your child hits those danger-craving years there's nothing that can stop them, except maybe you of course... if you're lucky.

These Tweets perfectly encapsulate just about how on-guard parents have to be 24/7.

Remember when you just wanted to grow up and do your own thing as an strong, independent adult who don't need no parents? Remind me why any of us wanted to grow up.

Five-Year-Old Raises $150 To Convince Her Parents To Change Her Name

When we're young we are basically testing our parents to see how much we can get away with. How late can I push my bedtime? Will my parents actually check my homework every single day? If I just ask for a toy enough times will it appear out of nowhere?

Another common question is, "Can I change my name?" It's a phase that a lot of children go through as they struggle to find independence in their highly constrained world. But what if it's more than just a phase? A 5-year-old girl named 'Charlie,' showed a lot of determination when requesting to change her name to 'Charlotte.' Her mother, Bri, made a Tiktok about it, and it quickly went viral.

Outrage After Male Teacher Sends Teen Home Due To 'Distracting' Turtleneck Dress Combo

There has always been a double-standard for girls and boys when it comes to dress-codes. In every student handbook, there are about ten pages reserved for girls: No bra straps showing, no skirts above the pinky finger, no collarbones, no leggings, no backs showing — I could easily go on for several paragraphs.

When you finally get to the boy section: No swear words on shirts, no hats... and that's basically the extent of it.

I was under the impression that school systems were changing and people were finally understanding how unfair it is to put the responsibility on the girls to make sure the boys don't get 'distracted.' But apparently we're still not there yet. And, apparently, it's not just the students who find it distracting. Ew.

Parents Discuss Times People Without Kids Had No Idea What They Were Talking About

Being a parent comes with a lot of knowledge. It's not a job for everyone. It's not even really a job since you don't make any kind of profit. However, from what I've gathered once you're a parent you begin to see things differently, suddenly you are bombarded with so much new information and a completely different lifestyle. It also looks extremely difficult but it must be worth it since so many people keep doing it, literally every day.

People Describe Their Funny Childbirth Stories

Giving birth is without a doubt one of the most beautiful miracles to occur every single second in this life. Side-note: Isn't that crazy? However, even though it is a precious thing, it is uncomfortable, painful, and gooey. I don't know about you, but my mom loves to remind me of that too. I guess childbirth/raising children are both one of those things that you never fully understand until you give it a go.

People Reveal Words Their Families Completely Made Up

When you spend too much time with people a lot starts to happen. You can predict their moods, memorize their sleep schedule, and of course, you develop some kind of a dialect that only becomes more and more abstract with time. Made-up words can definitely solidify a relationship. So, who do we spend the most time with growing up? Yep, our families. And some 'famiolects' just happen to go much farther than others.

Tweets About Things People Used To Think Were Fancy But Aren't At All

I don't know about you, but when I was a child I had literally no concept of money whatsoever. Because my parents wouldn't let me eat Kraft Mac and Cheese, I assumed it was expensive, and thus too nice for us. Boy was I mistaken. Now that I'm an adult, I still feel luxurious every time I pour out the powdered bright yellow 'cheese' all over the little noods. Every time it makes me feel like I've really made it.
