40 Times Parents Taught Their Kids Lessons But It Didn’t Turn Out As Expected

Being a parent is like riding a roller coaster on a daily basis. When it comes to raising children, there are many ups and downs, whether it is teaching them how to ride a bicycle, teaching them the value of money, or simply taking them to the grocery store. There are times when our children act as teachers, and they teach us lessons that we hadn’t even realized we needed to learn since the day we were born. Sometimes, these lessons result in hilarious moments as well. It is possible that these kids don’t want to be taught crucial life lessons by their parents, even if they have the best intentions and excellent 200-IQ tactics. And sometimes, these lessons might backfire in such a spectacular way that they wind up causing thousands of people to laugh out loud.

Reddit user -Don-Draper’s- call for parents to describe the times their lessons went completely wrong resulted in the conversation that had us chuckling at the incredible sense of humor displayed by these people. What these stories demonstrate is how critical it is for parents and their children to interact and communicate well. Likewise, we came across a blog author Samantha Scroggin who told about how to communicate effectively with children. Samantha Scroggin works in government communications and is also the writer of the ‘Walking Outside in Slippers’ blog for parents.

Samantha from ‘Walking Outside in Slippers’ once stated: “Communication is an area I have a lot of experience in, working in government communications for a living. Even with that experience, communicating with my kids is a challenge!”

Because her children are so high-energy and intense, Samantha believes they require constant validation. That’s a situation to which many parents can relate. This implies that some children may require frequent feedback from their parents, while others may be more inclined to dismiss any life lessons being taught to them because they are constantly on the go.

According to Samantha “Although kids constantly vying for our attention can be grating, I think it’s important we put down our phones sometimes, look them in the eyes and say, ‘Tell me all about that cardboard robot you made.’ Kids want our undivided attention on occasion, and to hear how proud of them we are,”

Taking a deep breath, unwinding, and being calm are all-important. The fact that we are the adults and have to put up a show like grownups even if our tiny munchkins can drive us mad at times. So we have to give up part of our well-earned free time in order to give our children the attention they require from us. All parents need to keep this in mind because your kid will become more open and receptive to the lessons you want them to teach or learn in the future.

If you are a parent, you know that parenthood is one of the most important, critical, and difficult roles. When it comes to their responsibilities, parents must set some boundaries for themselves as well as for their children to follow. It’s difficult to teach the kids not to deceive their parents, but it’s critical for them to understand that their parents are their best friends and that nothing should be kept concealed from their eyes. Children may conceal mistakes or wrongdoings out of fear of being reprimanded or enraged by their parents. If kids behave in this manner, you are not providing proper parenting.

Parents make every effort to teach their children valuable lessons that will serve them well in the future, yet they fail to do so sometimes. Conversely, the situation might worsen to the point where even parents begin to question why they taught their children this behavior. Always remember to teach children healthy habits and to be humble and respectful. It doesn’t matter if your child does not bring home a trophy or does not receive perfect marks in every subject; what matters most is that his or her emotions and feelings are respected and supported.

We go through a period of time where we believe we’re doing the proper thing for our kids. Then something will happen to remind us that there is something new to consider and that perhaps we didn’t handle things in the exact manner we should have done so. No matter how many parenting books we read or educational films we watch online, there will undoubtedly be mistakes made along the way. In fact, that is exactly how tough it is to deal with a gazillion problems in the world of parenting.
