The hashtag #whymykidiscrying has delighted parents and, at the same time, made those of us raising toddlers feel like we’re part of a much-needed community. And while there has been the occasional outcry over the potential harm of “embarrassing” you kids on social media, most people take it for the good, clean fun it’s intended to be.
In my opinion, the good it does parents is bigger than whatever hurt a kid might feel when they’re older but what do I know?
Make up your own mind, but these 15 kids are crying over some truly epic stuff.
#15. “I wouldn’t let him electrocute himself, so I’m the bad guy.”
Keeping them alive is a full time job.
#14. “His cookie is broken (he broke it).”
Cookies are life.
#13. “I’m the worst person because I didn’t let him fill his mouth with more cookies.”
You really are the worst person.
#12. “She’s crying because her sister is hugging her snowman.”
Not all sisters are Elsa and Anna.
#11. “He has just found out that he will be an older brother!”
My husband had a similar reaction.
#10.“I wouldn’t let him eat the ’8 months’ sticker on his shirt, so he’s looking at his dad to help him.”
I mean, it does look delicious?
#9. “I can’t reach the coins, they are too far away.”
I see Drama Club in his future.
#8. “I wouldn’t let her fall off the couch.”
#7. “Somebody stole my lolly while I was napping.”
Okay, that’s hilarious.
#6. “I wouldn’t let her chew on the AA battery she found.”
What is with kids and batteries?
#5. “Definitely not a huge fan of autumn leaves…”
Not everyone is born to be an outdoorsman or woman.
#4. “He’s crying because I wouldn’t let him have a sip of my mouthwash.”
I’m thinking the one sip would have been a life lesson you’d never have to argue over again.
#3. “The ball pit was too big for her to drag it from the hall to the kitchen.”
But she’s come so far.
#2. “I wouldn’t let her watch the movie 300 with me.”
One day she’ll thank you.
#1. “I wouldn’t let him play in the garbage.”
Garbage remains fascinating for years.
Kids, man. Gotta love ’em. After all, if you don’t, who will?
