Things Parents Do:

I used to have a blog, with similar posts like the ones I post here, except it was quite limited.

I remember writing a post about parents and the funny, crazy and annoying things they do. Actually, that post was the reason I deleted the site. But we don’t have to talk about that!

However, after I posted the post on my old blog, someone commented, who actually had special machines to type for him since he was blind (i thought that was interesting). He said that the post made him smile because his mum usually did the things that I said my parents did.

So I want to write a post like that again.

Something funny that usually happens with my parents is they usually lecture me about how I need to eat healthy foods and how I should go out more instead of staying indoors all the time. But whenever my grandma comes to stay, she usually lectures my parents about that. Well…my dad, anyway, since my grandma is his mum and my mum’s parents live far far away.

They’re also quite hypocritical, which can be annoying but funny. At the time, it was annoying but now it’s just funny.

They lie too because they think it’ll “protect” you like saying:

  • “Chocolate will give you acne.”
  • “If you make a rude face and the wind changes direction, it will stay like that.”
  • “If you watch the TV for too long, it will set on fire.”




I remember when my sister’s tooth came out, she put it under her pillow but my dad forgot to parentsreplace it with a coin. So in the morning, he snuck into my room, which I had shared with my sister, and took the tooth and put a one pound coin under he pillow. I was up already and we thought my sister was too until she opened her eyes and was really confused and angry. I’m not totally sure she still believes in the tooth fairy anymore.


I was reading BuzzFeed and I read some crazy funny stuff! I read that the writer’s parents said that his mum told him that if he touched anything in the store, a kitten would die. He also said that his dad said: “My dad told me people only get 10,000 words per month. If you reach the limit, you can’t physically speak until the new month begins. Anytime I was especially talkative, dad would say, ‘Careful, you’re over 9,000 by now.’”

And he said that his dad told him that the animals on the side of the road were only sleeping because it was warm there.


What are some funny things your parents told you?
