BuzzFeed has put together a list of slightly messed up things that most parents are guilty of doing at least once. If you’re a parent, how many of these have you committed:
Throw away your kids’ artwork sooner or later…or, ahem, sooner.
Hide your snacks from your kids like, “mine, all mine.”
Take way too long to “seek” your kids during hide-and-seek, just to have some me time.
Blame your kids for sights, sounds and smells that definitely aren’t theirs.
Use your kids as an excuse to get out of something you just plain don’t want to do.
Skip words, sentences, or entire pages in a bedtime story when you’re just too tired.
Throw away or hide an annoying toy and tell them it’s lost or broken.
Pretend to be asleep when you’re not so that they leave you alone.
Suggest the quiet “game” because you just can’t take anymore itty-bitty person chatter.
Let your partner do the disciplining, so you can be the “fun” parent.
