Kids have absolutely no problem telling grown-ups what they think. When they're young, it's because they don’t know how to be anything but honest, and when they're older, it's because they believe they're never gonna turn into us.

So when Reddit user Sundriedsandles asked everyone on the platform, "What's the most savage thing you heard a child say to an adult?" the replies came pouring in. From insulting our appearance to questioning our life choices, here's what the little ones are capable of.

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread In a busy store, kid maybe 4 years old getting ignored.

"Dad. Dad. Dad. Daddy. Dad. Daddy. DADDY. DADDY. DAD. DADA! DADDY! DADDY! DADA! DAD! DAD!"

5 seconds later a great shout comes out this kid.

"STEEEEEEVE!"

That got dad's attention, he jumped 3 inches.

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread Someone in the family was pregnant, and my nieces were putting together the facts related to baby making at the time. A light bulb went off and they noted 'oh, so that means so and so had s*x.' Then, another light bulb went off and they said to their mom "oh, so that means that you and dad have had s*x too!"

They seemed skeptical, and when further questioned, said "Dad just doesn't seem like the type of person that would have s*x."

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread When I was 22 or so I was just out of college, living at home, and working as an aide at an elementary school. I was working with a first grader who asked me if I had kids. I said no. He asked if I had a wife. I said no. The kid looks a bit confused and says, "Then who do you live with?" I said that I live with my parents and brothers. Then the kid looks even more confused and goes, "Wait... I thought you were an adult." I know he didn't mean nothing by it, but damn.

Ty little bastard you were talking so loud, i reduced my alcohol consume down to 10% of what i drank before (and now limited to weekends) and lost almost 15kg since then. Yes, was on my best way of becoming an alcoholic. And i had that fat "beer tummy" while else being pretty skinny.

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread My daughter is a genius and on the spectrum... this has led to some hilarious (in hindsight) encounters. My mother-in-law was spending time with the little one to get to know her better (she was an unplanned life happens adoption and will be our only child.) They were folding clothes in my MIL‘s Living room when the otherwise silent all day 3yr old turns to her and says: “My panties are too small to fold.“ she held up my MIL’s underwear she had been folding. “I can fold your panties many many times. It is because your butt is so big.” My MIL said she then held her underwear up in awe and whispered “One day I too will be gloriously fat.”

“Hey, did you know that if you were to eat a bee, you would have more brains in your stomach than in your head.”

A conversation I overheard between my father and sister:

My father: “Can your little legs carry your big smart mouth?”

Some of these are obviously made up, but I think this one is rather common. I remember when my mom was pregnant with my younger brother and she was explaining it to me, I pointed at my dad's belly and asked if he was pregnant as well. Given the age difference between me and my brother, I would of been about 7.

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread I was washing dishes in the kitchen and singing to myself and my 4yr old walked in with her face screwed up and said "mummy you cant sing, it's hurting my ears".

If it makes you feel better, Dwayne Johnson posted a video of himself singing his song from the movie Moana and his daughter said, “daddy, stop, you’re ruining the song.” And he’s like, “that is literally my voice, I voiced the character?”

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread Last week my husband who works at a local grocery store overheard a mother pushing her two kids in a cart and complaining about how heavy they were. The older child, probably around 7 years old looks at her and says, "You're the one who decided to have two kids". Looks like someone spends a lot of time at his grandparent's house.

This is teaching moment. A) How to apologize to someone you have been accidentally rude to, and B) how some people have bodies that make them need to have help. A three year old can understand that grandma needs glasses to help her see; she is old enough to understand that the man needs a special chair to get around.

30 Times Honest Kids Slam-Dunked Adults With Savage Roasts, As Shared In This Online Thread When I was around 4 or 5 we went to Canada to attend my grandfathers funeral. It was a long time coming so my grandmother had been handling it well. We stayed up there for about 2 weeks after since it was summer and we usually spent august up there anyways, but this time as we were pulling out of the driveway to head back south I leaned out the window and shouted "Bye Grandma! Love you! Don't die now!"
