Parents say some of the craziest things.

When I was a kid, I remember thinking my parents were crazy with their words sometimes. I thought some of their responses to things were exaggerated and extreme. And now that I’m a parent, I understand!

When you are a parent you are “on” 24/7. Your children need to be parented 24/7. This kind of constant human interaction can be exhausting, mainly for the parents, but also for the children. A family environment is a breeding ground for craziness.

Sometimes parents just run out of things to say and they go to the extreme.

Sometimes they say off-the-wall things just to get their children’s attention. You don’t understand it as a child, but it makes complete sense to the adult.

Isn’t parenting fun?
