16 Things Every Parent Should Never Show Their Kids

You know when you show your kid something for the first time and then regret it until the end of time. That.

Posted on

1. How to use the stairs.

Which they now insist on using all the time, slowly.

2. How to push a trolley in the supermarket.

Because now they refuse to sit in one.

3. Your iPhone.

It's now *their* iPhone.

4. The word "ouch".

Which they will scream in public, at will. Everyone will stare.

5. The word "no".

Hope you like hearing it shouted!

6. The word "more".

That also gets shouted a lot.

7. How great straws are.

Nobody can drink anything through a straw near them now, as they always want to have one.

8. How amazing chocolate tastes.

So now you have to hide in the kitchen to eat yours.

9. Saying 'cheers'.

Now they do it every time they drink.

10. How to "help" in the kitchen.

Because it is the opposite of helpful.

11. How to make fart noises.

Which they save for when you're out in public.

12. The remote control.

Funnily enough, changing the channel constantly is not the same as watching television.

13. The fridge and its contents.

Please don't take the cheese out again.

14. How fun it is to tear up paper.

Until it's a letter from HMRC.

15. Where the bin is.

No, teddy does not live in the bin.

16. The toilet.

Thank you so much for taking my phone for a swim.
