With all the chaos and protests going on in the world at the moment, we thought we'd show some of the cutest, funniest and heartwarming signs that kids have held in protests over the years. Because let's face it, we all need some cheering up.
Kids say and do some pretty weird things. It's just how they're built; they have no filter and not a care in the world. As they get older, they (hopefully) develop a sense of what's socially appropriate and what isn't, but until that happens, kids will be weird and wonderful kids, doing some pretty strange stuff in the process. A Reddit thread asking parents to share the weirdest things they've caught their children doing has revealed some hilariously strange confessions, some of the funniest are below for your viewing pleasure and amusement.
The joys of having kids are endless. For all the painful months of pregnancy, the long nights of no sleep, and clearing up all their mess, it's still a beautiful and miraculous experience to watch them grow into their own little independent people. And hopefully, you feel the sacrifices you made are worth it for all the love you feel. But it's also normal to miss the life you left behind before they came along, and the Instagram account Got Toddlered shows just how true that is for some people. By putting before and after having kids pictures side by side, they really capture how drastically life changes once kids come along.
When it comes to honesty, kids are brutal these days. They are getting ballsier by the day, and saying exactly what is on their mind... a far cry from the old "kids should be seen and not heard" mantra of way back when. Here are some hilarious tweets from parents who reveal just how honest their kids are and some of them seriously burn!
Each week we bring you a talented female artist who produces incredible quality content. This week we've picked Thais Vanderheyden, a Belgian writer, and illustrator of children's books whose illustrations showing quarantine life with four toddlers are hilariously relatable (if you're stuck at home with kids). Her drawings depict the daily struggles of trying to keep up with work, have some alone time, and keep her kids occupied, which is hard enough at the best of times, never mind being quarantined with them. Take a look at her brilliant drawings below and once you've enjoyed that, check out last week's female artist of the week in case you missed it.
Ever wondered what would have happened if kids will write screenplays? Brutally honest, funny, sometimes naive screenplays? Well, a new Facebook page called Kids R the best screenwriters takes real quotes from real kids, present them as scenes from a play and adds brilliant illustrations to add some extra fun.
Here are some of the best quotes we found there, you are more than welcome to send them you kid (or grandson) quote and be featured there.
As most parents know, putting kids to bed is hardly a walk in the park. For some reason, they'll find every excuse under the sun to stay awake (until they become teenagers and then sleep is all they do) and make your life a misery while they do it. One mom and professor at Duke Divinity School, Kate Bowler, tweeted all of the delaying tactics of her six-year-old son Zach, who for 30 days straight tried to keep his mom in the room longer than usual after getting tucked in by asking questions. Here are some of his funniest ones.
Kids don't understand a lot about the world, including how cheap or expensive things actually are. Much of this is based on the environment we grew up in and how much price was discussed in front of us, but also the fact that children have innocent and naive minds. A Reddit thread asking people to share the things they wrongly guessed as very expensive or cheap when they were children has shed light on all the things we just had no idea about. Here are some of the replies below.
Every parent thinks their children are the smartest, the cutest, and the overall best humans on the entire planet. And ironically, bragging parents are among the worst people on the entire planet and they all need to be shipped to an island somewhere where they can fight to the death over whose child can recite the alphabet backward before even being born. One father took to Twitter to brag about his children's intelligence, slam the public school system, and promote his new book. Needless to say, it didn't go down very well with other parents or teachers. Follow below to see how he was mercilessly trolled.
Kids sure do have their moments of being weird and annoying, but sometimes, just sometimes, they can be cute too. Although this might be hard to remember, after being in lockdown with them for weeks on end, these pictures prove that kids can put a smile on your face every now and again.
Each week we bring you a talented female artist who produces incredible quality content. This week, we've picked Kate McDonough, an illustrator living in South Dakota, USA, who created a comic titled I Don't Want Kids (And That's OK!), to explain why raising children is not for her. Kate felt the need to create the comic because of the expectations and pressures she feels from society to have children even though she doesn't want to. She believes that acceptance is the only appropriate response to a woman expressing her desire to not have kids, even if you do not share the same opinion. Trying to convince her otherwise is just not OK. Take a look at her brilliant heartfelt comic below and once you've enjoyed that, check out last week's female artist of the week in case you missed it.

Getting dumped is pretty brutal, however old you are. There's never a good age to be told by your SO that they no longer wish to be with you. At least when you're an adult you can (hopefully) use some tact when you're breaking up with someone and spare some of their dignity. But when it comes to kids, they have no filter and are brutally honest with the reasons for their breakups. Here are some breakup letters written by kids and they sting just to read them!
You gotta love how brutally honest kids can be sometimes. Or not. Just when you think you're looking good, your kid will come along to let you know that you're not. Just when you think you've got it all together, your kid will come along and expose all the ways you do not. Out of the mouth of babes is all too read for some parents, which they've proved in the tweets below. Check out how these parents were savagely torn apart by their kids having absolutely no filter.
Kids R The Best Screenwriters has finally debuted in English! A page filled with hilarious and adorable quotes from real kids everywhere!
The brilliant page was originally created by Israeli married couple Assaf and Sarit Katz. They are both managing the community and creatives, while Sarit also creates all the graphics and original illustrations for everything within their successful page! The talented duo have 3 daughters and around 7 years ago, they began to document their kids insights within a notebook.
Assaf decided to share a few of those insightful quotes on Facebook and it wasn't long until Kids R The Best Screenwriters became a huge success in Israel! Not only is the page wildly successful, there is also a published best-selling book based on the quotes, the quotes were featured in the Kids Museum and Assaf runs a successful lecture titled, "To Think Like A Kid."
These real quotes provide an insight into the whimsical mind of children, and while most times it's funny and nonsensical, it's also often smart and quite frankly, very honest. As many of you know, kids have no filter. And we're sometimes grateful for that purity and honesty.
