Parenting is the thing that usually gets harder over time despite what people think. Raising a toddler is tough but having a teenager at home is not a walk in the park either. The tweets below were shared by people who understood the perks of parenting and shared moments of their personal experience that might just inspire others or give them ideas to excel at parenthood.
1. The reality
It seems that some parents need to explain things to their kids as they are and now as they accept them to be. This dad was aware of the real reason why his daughter referred to sweatpants as joggers but we guess he has a point. Calling them by another name would not change their value or their purpose.
2. The shorts
Here is something that we believe parents of smaller kids could immediately relate to. They all know that winter is a challenge because of the low temperatures and all the diseases and given the fact that kids don’t know how to protect themselves, the challenge becomes twice as big. This person nailed it.
3. The dinner
Now, this is one of the most popular things that has happened to every single parent out there. Having the time and patience to endure these moments is something not all parents are okay with and many among them are not willing to put up with it but they still need to. Kids will be kids and they need to have fun.
4. The kids
There is one thing that all parents could agree with and this is the difference between the moments when kids are sleeping and when they are awake. As you can see here, this person described the two periods really well. She seems to be grateful for them when they sleep and not that happy when they are awake.
5. The new parent
Here is yet another example of what becoming a parent feels like. It seems that nothing can prepare a person for this important task and nobody is capable of explaining the things it is related to. This person tried to be funny about it but we guess there is a lot of truth behind it as well.
6. The energy
The energy kids have is sometimes just too much. In fact, some toddlers appear to have an endless source of power and their parents often cannot explain the drive they have. Needless to say, this drive is most often manifested in a lot of trouble that only Dennis the Mennace could cause. Bathtime, however. is a different story.
7. The whistle
Parents everywhere should know that they can escape the faith many others have caused on their own. This is a common mistake: buying your kids something that makes loud noise is a huge no-no and you should never consider bringing home something like that, otherwise, you will suffer for sure.
8. The wife
The most important thing you should know when you become a proud parent is that intimacy would become either scarce or impossible. This is the reality and you are lucky if you can afford some privacy with your spouse. In this case, the tweet uses a funny joke to explain why that is a fact. We know that most parents always try to overcome that obstacle and we hope most couples achieve success.
9. The job
Well, there you have it – the best explanation of parenting we have ever seen. If you think this person is exaggerating, you better think again – the things described in this tweet are nothing but the truth. We guess that this comparison should be taken into account by everyone who strives to become a parent. The reality in it is something everyone needs to read.
10. The location
Now, this is one of the other usual perks of childhood that nobody could prepare you for. This person used a lot of sarcasm to describe something toddlers usually do. They always call you for the most absurd reasons ever and they do it right when you are in the bathroom doing your business.
11. The soccer practice
The things people learn every day are amazing and this is especially true when you are a kid. This mother, however, is forced to put up with another thing. It is not her son that learns something but her husband – he seems to forget some of the basics behind parenting. The mother surely understands that this is simply one of the things every mother and housewife puts up with daily.
