It seems that a lot has changed in the process of raising a kid in the past few decades. The things we were all taught by our parents were not always the correct ones, and some people were actually aware of that when they experienced it firsthand. Such people are usually determined to never teach their kids the same things they were taught back in the day. The list below shows some of the best such things shared on Reddit.

1. The guilt trips

Here is something that we believe was never as effective as the people who used it thought it actually was.

2. The opinion

We can easily agree with this opinion because it has all the valid arguments we wanted to hear.

3. The fear

It seems that this is one of the things that every parent needs to learn, as it is a valuable lesson.

4. The feelings

Having your kids be brave enough to express their feelings and share them with you is a parenting success.

5. The insults

Image Source: Reddit

Well, it appears that there might be some truth to this but we still think that insults are not right.

6. The side

Image Source: Reddit

When there is a problem or a dispute, everyone should be allowed to state their point of view.

7. The VHS

Now, this is one of the things that nobody would surely feel the need to teach their kids today – nobody uses VHS tapes now.

8. The comparisons

This is something most of us know how it feels and we all know that it is very wrong. Nobody should do that.

9. The careers

There are parents who still think that no other career would be profitable or prestigious but this is not the truth.

10. The stress

Image Source: Reddit

Nobody could avoid this and the only thing to teach your kids is to be able to handle stress in the correct way.

11. The bodies

There are people who try to scold their kids for being obese but the truth is nobody should strive to be perfect all the time.

12. The teachers

Image Source: Reddit

Teachers are not always right and this is something that kids must understand at an early age.

13. The correlation 

Image Source: Reddit

People should never teach their kids that they must admit others are wrong because they are older.

14. The silence 

Image Source: Reddit

Everyone should tell their kids to stand up for themselves when others try to do something wrong to them.

15. The questioning 

Image Source: Reddit

It seems that most kids would keep silent if they must question elders’ authority but they should do it if they are right.

16. The tomboy 

Image Source: Reddit

There are people who still try to determine their kids’ style but they should just let them do their thing.

17. The arguments

Image Source: Reddit

There are moments when you should let your kids defend their point of view in an argument.

18. The matters

Image Source: Reddit

Here is yet another thing that should be understood by everyone who raises kids or wants to have offspring.

19. The habits

Image Source: Reddit

Some people were raised with bad financial habits but they need to teach other things to their own kids.

20. The support

Image Source: Reddit

It is true that kids need support sometimes but being over supportive is not okay when raising a child.

21. The emotions

Image Source: Reddit

Trying to explain your own lack of self-control with your kids’ behavior is simply not the right thing to do.

22. The lesson

Image Source: Reddit

This was something that many girls have heard before but we believe that it is a bad lesson to teach a kid.

23. The tantrums

Image Source: Reddit

None of this sounds like a good idea – parents need to behave like grownups and as kids.

24. The father

There are no arguments one could have against this post – it shows one thing that should not happen.

25. The anxiety

Image Source: Reddit

This is one of the worst things that have happened to most of us. These are real problems that should be recognized.

26. The college

Image Source: Reddit

Here is yet another piece of advice that is limiting and is definitely not true. College does not equal wealth.

27. The perfectionists 

Image Source: Reddit

We guess that nobody should ask for complete perfection from any of their kids. Nobody could be perfect all the time.

28. The bugs

Image Source: Reddit

Well, this is something unusual to see and we are not entirely sure why would a father tell this to their kids.

29. The lessons

Image Source: Reddit

There are moments when parents are just not right and they make their kids believe they still hold the correct opinion.

30. The kiss

Image Source: Reddit

This is by far one of the most uncomfortable things we were made to do and we would never tell our kids to do this.

31. The money

Image Source: Reddit

This is another of the types of advice that should become obsolete. Kids should know the value of money.

32. The punishment

Image Source: Reddit

This is not a common thing but we are sure that if it happens, it is wrong.

33. The start

Image Source: Reddit

This is how the thread started and we guess it went viral for a reason.
