For parents of misbehaving kids (which, let's face it, is all parents), embarrassment is one of the most effective ways of turning the tables. Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of a child who might've gotten a little too big for their britches more than being shown up in front of their mates.
Kids get to a stage, usually around their early teens, when they just find their parents to be eye-rollingly cringeworthy. They want to strike out in the world and find their own identities - and consequently begin to rebel a little against the 'authority figures' that are their parents. It can be a difficult period for both child and parent, but with some understanding and good humor, it can be easily negotiated.
This list, inspired by a Nick Harvey tweet, is a classic of the genre: Mortified children recounting the horror of their most embarrassing parent-related moments. Sure, some of these parents put their kids through a public shaming entirely by accident; but there are also plenty of vengeful moms and dads who knew exactly what they were doing!
