Stingy Mom Pays Babysitter With Toothpaste Tubes And Nothing Else

Babysitting is no easy feat. As cute as kids are, they get hella rowdy and annoying sometimes. When it's not your own kids, the money ultimately makes it worth it, especially when you're a teen trying to make it in the world. A Reddit woman who is now in her twenties shared a post in which she recalled a babysitting horror story in her teens where she babysat without any nourishment for an entire day, only to be paid in toothpaste tubes by the stingy mom. The mom also took advantage of her services and made her clean the house. Yikes. Read all the details below.

Women Reveal The Moments They Realized They Were Turning Into Their Mom

As we get older. we assume different kinds of roles. We might go from being the intern to the boss. From the Student to the teacher. From a pedestrian to a driver. But one of the most common roles switches is going from child to parent. But your parenting habits don't come out of nowehere. We don't simply become parents, many of us completely shape-shift into our own parents. It can be difficult to realize at first, but it's kind of unavoidable so better to just accept it sooner rather than later.

TikTokers Expose The Biggest Lies They Were Told By Their Parents

White-lies are necessary sometimes — especially when dealing with children. They are so curious about absolutely everything. Those little buggers can be ruthless with questions if you find yourself caught on 'Why Train.' It's exhausting.

'Why do I need to wear a seatbelt'

'Because it's safer'

'But Why?'

'Because it protects you from...'

It is at this point that you start to think, is it worth it to explain all the possible things that can go wrong during a car ride to this little child?

'It protects you from... the hiccups'

Seems like a legitimate enough answer. But then this little kid is going to need a thorough re-explanation later in life, and you're responsible.

Mom Accused Of Promoting Disordered Eating For Serving Sparkling Water At Teen Party

Parents should definitely not be pushing diet-culture-type foods on their children. It sends mixed messages about food, and strength, and overall health. However, not everyone considers the same foods to be a part of the 'toxic diet culture world.' Some people could get triggered by fruit because it reminds them of the fruit cleanse they went on when they were trying to lose 10 pounds. But for other people, it's just a sweet treat. They don't have the same connotation to it.

My wife just gave birth to our first child and man oh man did I learn a lot in a short time. It's kinda like trial by fire where you think you're prepared and then the doctors tell you your baby is enormous and you have five minutes to agree to do a c-section or else you're a bad parent. But I digress… Let's discover some of the things you have no clue about that you might encounter when your partner goes into labor.

Teachers Expose Family Secrets Which Their Students Revealed To Them

All families have their fair share of dirty laundry, but members usually try their hardest to keep their secrets under wraps. However, children are a different breed. Their naivete causes them to open their mouths without thinking and unleashing all their family drama onto the world - aka their teachers.
