Maintaining your sanity in the midst of parenting challenges often involves finding humor amid the chaos. Fortunately, the little ones you’re caring for have a talent for creating those small, uproarious moments that can act as a release valve for the tension built up from practicing self-control.

Parents shared stories online that show just how hilarious parenting can get.

1. Guilt Trip Gone Wrong

Parents, especially mothers, plan the perfect trips, especially guilt trips for misbehaving kids. They love to remind their kids just how much they have done for them, important things like, you know, carrying them in the belly for months.

One child got tired of going on these guilt trips and retorted, “Really Mom, how long are you gonna ride that scooter?”

It’s time to get off that scooter, Mom. Maybe buy a quad bike now? 

2. An Honest Review

Encouraging a child to try his best is one of a parents’ roles. One couple did an awesome job, and their son showed how well he understood when he offered his review of an artist’s Paper Cut Outs exhibit.

He said, “At least he tried.”

Art is definitely not for kids, they’re too honest.

3. Why Are You Shouting?

What do kids and preachers have in common? They both like to see their outdoor voice a little too much. One kid who had been taught to use their inner voice wasn’t too happy when his preacher grandpa got carried away during a sermon.

The child shouted from the pews, “Calm down, Pawpaw!”

4. A Semantics Confusion

A little boy, excited after seeing his friend’s hunting collection, decided what he wanted for Christmas: a bow and arrow or a gun. He wanted to be a hunter; the only problem was his family was not hunting people, and his mama told him as much.

He replied, “Oh, I don’t want to hunt people, Mom,” he said. “I want to hunt animals.”

English is confusing, we understand.

5. If Mom Passes Out, Eat Whatever You Want

Teaching kids what to do in an emergency is a life-saving skill, and we hope they’re actually listening. After an emergency drill, one parent tested their kid’s understanding of what to do in an emergency.

She asked, “What would you do if you found me on the floor and you couldn’t wake me up?”

The child thought about it hard and said, “I would go into the kitchen and eat anything I want.”

It’s time for a retake of that lesson, Mom.

6. A Golfer’s Funeral

An online user shared his son’s experience at a funeral. The family of the deceased golfer decided to throw golf balls in his grave during the funeral. A child in attendance was awed by this act, and when the funeral was over, he told his parent, “Mom, it’s a good thing your friend wasn’t a bowler.”

There sure wouldn’t be space left for sand.

7. Why did Jesus die on the cross?

A Catholic boy was confident about why the Good Lord died on the cross.

He said, “Because his dad told him he had to.”

Dad’s words are the law.  

8. An Age Dilemma

Most kids have a problem finishing their food, and parents and grandparents must find creative ways to make them eat. One great-great-aunt made a rule for her great-great-niece to eat as many scoops as her age.

The kid added to her age when it was time for ice cream.

9. Demystifying the Tooth Fairy

One school nurse demystified the tooth fairy for one kid when she told him his mom was the tooth fairy. When his mom confirmed this very useful information, he asked her, “How do you fly around to all the houses?” 

Well, the mystery is still intact.

10. A Puppy, Not A Baby

Siblings are supposed to be excited about their newer siblings, and one mama couldn’t wait to show her older child their sibling.

Her reaction was priceless. She said, “I told you that I wanted a puppy!”

Puppies don’t cry all night, so her request is reasonable.

11. Parents Can Run Too

Parents must look really ancient in kids’ eyes. One boy was very surprised when his dad made a dash for the bus and actually caught it.

He exclaimed, “Daddy, I didn’t know you could run.”

12. Queens And Servants

Kids are observant, and they can tell when things are being done the right way. An online user narrates how his child narrated publicly that he treated his wife like a queen.

The proud dad asked, “Since I treat her like a queen, what does that make me?”

The easy answer is King; the boy said “servant.”
