Parents Are Sharing Times Their Children Unintentionally Roasted Them

One of the simultaneously best and worst things about children is their innocent honesty. They haven’t developed a filter yet, let alone a sense of tact, and so you can always trust them to tell you the truth about things that adults might dance around to spare your feelings. This can result in some of the most devastating roasts, and yet you can’t get mad at the roasters. They’re just kids being kids.

This is something feminist author Aubrey Hirsch discovered when she talked to one of her son’s classmates.

That is one sick burn.

This short story posted on Sunday resonated with many thousands of parents, some of whom shared their own stories of their kids hitting them with truth bombs. Even people without kids had some stories to tell, because children will roast their parents to anyone who will listen.

As one commenter said: “Little drunk people with no filter. That’s exactly a little kid.”

A lot of the stories from moms are along the same theme — kids thinking they’re two different people whether or not they’ve bothered to do their hair and put on makeup or, as happens on most days, they just barely had the energy to put on sweatpants. It’s surprising how many of those stories actually involve only adults.

But it’s funnier when kids do it. Here are our favorite entries:
