Im not a parent but I can remember as a kid my dad had a shed in the back of his house where a big bag of porn was kept. He works nights so me and my brother decide to open and see what was in the shed ( we had no idea before hand). We open the for and couldn't close it. We Spent HOURS trying to close the door but it didn't work. We finally stopped he continues to watch TV I fall asleep then he wakes up and tells me he found out how to close it. The next day he opens it and we run into the problem again only this time my fathers landlord shows up and sees us closing the door. I think he secretly knew what was in there and we Finally got it closed. Didn't get caught by my dad but we were close....

I cant imagine why I would share that. Some things are private

Maybe ask adult what they did that was the worst thing they were caught for?

I had prepared a meal for my daughter and set her down at the table with her food. I ran to the restroom, and when I came back, I found her feeding the dogs some of her food. I was very cross!

I am guessing your child is very, very young if that is the "worst" thing they did. Or you aren't very "on top" of what is going on with your kids.

Kids make mistakes, make poor decisions, do the wrong thing. Its part of growing up.

OP, that's the worst thing you did as a kid?! That's not even bad, just curious. If my kid did that, I wouldn't say it was bad, I'd say it was time to talk about sexuality. You didn't even get "caught". I can think of a dozen things just off the top of my head that are much worse than that. Like real trouble in high school, college, with the police, etc. Tons of stuff.

Cheezball...this is the worst thing your kid did?!

I'm confused.

And I agree w/HighFlyingBird, I wouldn't share some of the stuff my kid has done so far but will say it's a lot worse than giving his food to the dog...is that even bad? Or is it kind of funny? He's gotten in a good deal of trouble. Life goes on. I just hope he stays off drugs.

Not sure, but it was pretty tame. My kids were disappointing in the crazy rebellion department. My son sort of stole a car when he was 14. He and his biddy took his buddy's moms car and went driving around our island. I did not catch them though, the cops did.

our girls - refusing to clean their room maybe?

Youngest son, I catch him refusing to get up and go to school on a daily basis. I have fun devising ways to encourage him. My favorite so far involved a trio of ferrets.

Yes, my daughter was and still is 2 years old.

When my twins were about three or four, I made them spaghetti and they refused to eat it. I threw it at them instead and they threw it back. An all out free for all spagetti food fight ensued and I had to spend an hour cleaning up (we did not have a dog at the time). Bad kids!

I wouldn't share it on here, either. Someone is likely to judge.


And why discuss something so private about one's kids.

I guess the worst (funny) thing my kid did when she was little was she was throwing a typical toddler/preschool tantrum at a store so we were leaving instead of finishing up. In the parking lot she grabbed onto my pants and yanked. I don't think pantsing me in public was premeditated (the pants were too big to begin with) but I was pretty humiliated...but now its just pretty funny. And of course I was wearing my most hideous pair of granny panties that day because I had to do laundry.

I still don't think a 2 year old feeding the dog is all that naughty. They see us feeding the dogs, giving them treats, letting them clean up the spills on the floor So at 2, its just doing what they see everyone else doing. Which is part of how they learn.
