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.

Fifteen Things Adults Believe All Teenagers Should Know

It's kind of funny how every year we get older and realize there were so many things that we didn't need to stress about so much in our past. My father once told me, "If it's not going to matter in 5 years, it doesn't really matter at all," and now I'm beginning to understand what he meant. Sometimes it can feel like older adults don't understand what younger adults are going through, but usually, they can. They literally went through it themselves and came out the other end okay it seems. 

Of course, some things change, and we face different issues from our parents, but some pieces of advice, like many of the ones mentioned in this Reddit thread, will always be applicable.

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.

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 Reveal Why Women Live Longer Than Men

So, it's commonly known at this point that women outlive men in almost every part of the world. I'm definitely not complaining, but it is interesting to think about why it might be that way. I'm sure there's a totally accurate scientific explanation for it somewhere, but conveniently #WomenLiveLongerThanMenBecause is already trending on Twitter so... I bet the true answer is there somewhere. Hehe.
