Kids are full of paradoxes. They’re innocent and carefree, yet somehow, they seem to know a thing or two about life. There’s always something on the tip of that expert tongue. When the right moment comes—it strikes. Beware, parents, your days are numbered and you’re about to stand trial. Meet the judge—your heavenly child.

Let’s see how it turned out for these parents who shared the not-so-welcome opinions of their beloved bambinos in this Twitter thread.

After you’re done with this roasting session, pick up those parenting karma points from the floor and give yourself a confidence boost right here. To all the fellow parent pandas out there: like Dr. Phil says, this is a safe space to talk about hard things—share your experiences in the comments, so we can toast them!

Bored Panda contacted Sean Duffy, an associate professor of psychology at Rutgers University, to find out why our little devils tend to point out very odd things. “We are all interested in some profound questions as to what it means to be—be being an important verb. But kids do ask the strangest questions: the universe, why does it exist? Will the sun die in my life time? Will our efforts to curb climate change really make a difference?” In fact, “children today are a lot more aware of the challenges of the future than previous generations”, says Sean Duffy. “Just imagine our fathers or grandfathers in the 1950s even considering climate change. They had their own challenges—communism, the Soviet Union—but they live in a different context than their grandparents in the 1960s.”

This is very unclever. Children perceive things differently. They see beaty where we are quick to judge "ugly". You should, thus, even more believe her words.

Let your child discover their own challenges of existence. “Every parent must understand that they created in their children a new world. They had their own universe of morally ambiguous situations, whether it be the fall of the Berlin Wall or 9/11... every generation has to realize its own uncomfortable place in the order of things.”

It’s okay not to have the answers to all the things your child asks, because “there are no simple or easy answers to any of the myriad complex of unanswerable questions.” The professor explains that “we live in a universe of moral ambiguity and that our culture and society has provided only weak answers to existential questions.”

This one reminds me of my brother. I wasn't born yet, so it's a family story I know, not something I remember myself. Our mom always had elegant straight long hair, then she had to cut it for health and practical reasons. My brother, who was still a baby/ toddler couldn't recognize her for a good while.

I once had my daughter ask me very loudly why my boobs were so long when trying on bras. Much sniggering ensued from the next cubical.

Sounds like when my mom would get on us to clean the house. We'd always ask, "Who's coming over?"

This has more to do with the fact that kids like consistency than her actual appearance. They'd like her either way as long as she always appeared the same way. I changed my hair and my nephew screamed "no!" when he first saw me.

This is why gender stereotypes are bad, people. This is also why insisting boys are actually girls in boys bodies because they like pink and have long hair and wear dresses is bad, people.

Preschool child, with preschool (aka pre-educated) concepts of gender. It's a perfectly reasonable question to ask. Now, if she were, say, a high-school student, this would be rude. But coming from a kid that's honestly confused and trying to figure this out? It's a teachable moment, and completely innocent on the kid's part.

I can understand they left their son with the babysitter but why did she have to emphasize that he was crying as if this was somehow funny?
