20 Times Parents Struggled To Punish Their Kids Without Laughing


“The second day at a new school, my 6th grade daughter dropped another girl who had slapped her at lunch. It was witnessed by school admin but the kid on the ground tried to say that she didn’t slap my daughter first. She said “if I hit her then why am I the one crying?” to which my daughter responded “because I’m not a pussy!”

My mom decides to go check on her and she’s not in bed. Let me tell you a missing three year old is scary. I get called in to help look for her under the bed or something, I don’t remember. Anyway my mom says “[name], where are you?”
From the closet we here this small voice “in here”
We look and there my niece is sitting in the closet with my Halloween candy at her feet. Wrappers all around and a sucker in her hand. While I was fuming that she ate my candy my mom was about to lose it.” –mountsunrise

So my mom and I were driving down the main drag going past the McDonalds and my 5 year old yells out, “McDonalds tastes like dog shit!” He’d been listening to my husband and repeating what he had heard. Thankfully my mom is pretty cool and we both laughed out loud.” –daisychain0606
