Not every Karen has an entitled child.
While we love to joke about the fact that Karen children are usually very entitled, most often than not they grow up to hate the same people their mother represents. I suppose they learn from the ‘best’ at what not to do in their life. However, we have never actually heard what a kid thinks of their entitled mother.
While it is true sometimes kids are shown to be embarrassed by their parents’ actions but what is really going on through their minds? Well, you don’t have to wonder any longer. Because one Reddit user decided to ask exactly this question. And unsurprisingly, there were many people ready to relay their traumatic experiences and how they dealt with it.
You can scroll on below and take a look for yourself.
I am sure you can imagine, people had a lot to share.
#1 Not only was she a Karen but her name was Karen as well? How ironic.
It is never easy to realize your parents aren’t perfect.
I swear that this could be one of my brothers writing this. My mom’s name is also Karen and she acted and still acts exactly like this, down to never being able to keep a job a long time. I’m pretty sure she’s a straight-up narcissist, and it makes having a relationship with her extremely difficult.
I used to hate going out with her when I was a kid (and honestly still do) because things would get so humiliating. She’d complain about things, make a scene, raise her voice. It was mortifying. –Siareen
#2 I am not sure if this is a good thing.
#3 I suppose you learn important lessons from her abhorrent behavior.
This is how I feel about my mom. She wasn’t a total Karen, but she had emotional issues and would lose her shit over nothing. I just don’t want to be that kind of person. –M14535955
#4 This is just sad from all fronts.
#5 This can be pretty embarrassing.
It is never their fault but they always get yelled at.
The world doesn’t revolve around them but who is going to explain that to a Karen?
#6 That is actually very kind of you.
I don’t think anyone will go as far as spitting in your food but I understand what you mean.
#7 I feel bad for the people who had to spend their whole life with them.
#8 I have no idea how to pronounce it but I love that germans have a word for it.
#9 That is a whole another level of crazy.
#10 It really is very easy.
Just be kind and courteous.
And if you pointed out that behavior she would be indignant and claim she was being polite and nice. Yep, know that one well. –Samopal_Vzor58
#11 Is it really so hard to treat everyone with respect?
At least he learned his lesson.
