Babysitters Reveal Dark Secrets Of Seemingly Normal Parents

When you're a regular babysitter for a family, you get insight into their personal life. You learn their secrets (mostly through snooping around), but also through speaking to the kids. Because let's face it, kids have no filter. So this Reddit thread was a perfect opportunity for babysitters to spill the secrets of the seemingly "normal" families that they babysit - although what does normal even mean anymore?

I was a very popular baby sitter as I also worked at the daycare centre. Often I would have kids from two or three different families at once. I didn't care I got triple the pay for having three different groups of kids. I was recently told why I always had groups of kids like that. Turns out the small town had a swing

Crazy Stuff Parents Found In Their Kid's Rooms But Kept Quiet

Snooping through your kid's stuff is never a good idea because you will always find something you didn't want to see. And you can't unsee something. Plus, it's not a great way to build trust. Parents on a Reddit thread shared some of the weird things they found in their kid's rooms but never told their kids they found. From the cute love letters to the awkward sex toys, it's all here. Have you ever been in a similar situation?

crazy things parents found in kids bedrooms but kept quiet about - Text - browncoat47 13.1k points · 21 hours ago We had to move our kid out of a bad living situation. She wasn't in any condition to help. So wife and I go in and just start grabbing her stuff. We come across her adult baby fetish gear. Like two duffel bags of it, giant onesies, binkis, diapers etc. Wife looked at me, I looked at her, we shut each bag and have never spoken of it again.

Parenting is challenging at the best of times, but when you're thrown into being a parent with no prior warning, things can be even more overwhelming.

Please offer me any advice that can help me." Redditers jumped to the rescue, and the advice came pouring in from parents and people who had been raised by single fathers alike.

Funny, Satirical Cartoons Explaining The Do's And Don'ts Of Parenting

Nothing can prepare you for the challenging yet rewarding journey of parenthood. Sure, there are parenting books, websites, and experts who can tell you all about what to expect, but it's all theoretical until you experience it yourself. And even then, some parents manage to f*ck it up in a big way, which makes me believe even more that parenting is a privilege, not a right. Someone has created some hilariously satirical cartoons about the do's and don'ts of parenting, probably paying homage to the parents who don't have a clue. Scroll through and laugh at these tips and tricks for keeping your children alive.

Guy Trapped In Bedroom For 12 Hours, Hiding From GF's Parents

I distinctly remember being a teenager and making up all sorts of lies and excuses to my parents, so I could sneak out and see my boyfriend at the time. Although we would only hang out in his car or the park, the thrill of knowing my parents would disapprove of him made it all the more exciting, and I was more willing to take risks to see him. That's just the way teenagers are wired (right?), and I know I wasn't the only one doing it. All my friends had a secret older boyfriend at some stage or another. But at some point, the risks are not worth the rewards when it comes to sneaking around to see your sweetheart. One guy painfully learned this lesson after getting stuck hiding in his girlfriend's bedroom for 12 hours, so her strict parents wouldn't see him. He documented the whole saga on the popular subreddit, TIFU (Think I F*cked Up). Check it out below; it's a fantastic tale of endurance, and it's pretty funny too.

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!

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.
