Why Are Children Such Jerks?

Yes, I said it out loud.
To me, to my husband, to each other.
They can be belittling and cruel.
They make fun of each other and call each other names.
They throw things, hit, kick, and bite.
What is it about kids that puts them into this mode?

One day my children are perfect little angels,
Playing well together, laughing with each other (as opposed to laughing AT each other)
Even defending one another and being helpful to one another.

Then the next day . . .
All H-E-double-hockey-sticks breaks loose and they become these little tyrannical monsters that appear to hate the world around them - including each other - including me!

Now this is not an everyday occurance - for the most part my kids are wonderful and amazing and I love them more than anything.

But some days . . .
I just wonder if the gypsies are still taking applications for children . . ?

Those monster-children moments suck. Thank goodness they aren't all the time. Good luck.

I was just thinking the same exact thing- and my child is only a year and a half old.

HAHAHAHAHA! Dude...I know what you mean. Sometimes I just ask my kids, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH Y'ALL????" And they usually apologize and go on and play nicely, but sometimes...SOMEtimes...NOTHING helps. It's just one of those weird situations in life, I guess. I dunno, man. But I definitely feel you. And I think I may have called mine worse before...no, I probably have. lol

Ahhh - I remember when SonofaGun's son used to pull those shenanigans on me - never a good time. What can you do, right - besides breathe and pray of course :)

Thanks for visiting today!

Oh how I could have written this post! I was just talking the other day to my toddler’s daycare teacher that she seems to have two different personalities - the sweet one, and the terror.

One thing I will never tolerate is hitting, spitting, biting, etc from my children at me or each other.
I learn to ignore the attitude because well they get it from their mother.
