As if "Mansplaining" was bad enough, now the youth want to get in the action. Redditor u/the-mjolner-lisa needed to discuss the definition of everyone's new favorite word... Kidsplaining

This should be a thing. When your kid tries to explain something or tell you how it works in a very cute way but is totally wrong.

For example my almost 4-year-old told me how radio towers work. "There is a song or a radio sound and the radio tower has a big magnet in it, and when we want to listen to the sound the big magnet makes the song go into the little magnet in the phone."

Apparently I need to start watching some of these science shows with her because she was right.


Check and Mate. 

Kidsplaining is about to become the term for when you dismiss the explanation given by your children only to find out they are right. AFDIT

IKR. My seven year old is obsessed with the French equivalent of Bill Nye the Science Guy, and he also loves shows about mechanics (Rise of the Machines and the like). He keeps explaining me stuff I never heard about before, and when I look it up, I generally find out he got it surprisingly right (or at least fairly close). galettedesrois

Danger! Danger! 

I forgot to feed my sourdough starter for a few days and it grew mold. I got a huge lecture from my 11-year-old on the dangers of bacteria and how I might have made the whole house sick now. turbie

My son (9y) just explained to me that he can't share toothpaste tubes with is sister, because the bacteria will transfer. helm

Inspiring. 

My 4 year old told me that octopuses (octopi?) can regrow an arm/leg. I said, are you sure you're not thinking of starfish?Looked it up, sure enough, an octopus can regrow them too! Pickleodeon09

Both plurals are accepted. nanuq905

Show me the money big man! 

My 3-year-old explained Santa comes to people's chimneys and sells the kids toys. We use Amazon a lot... MusicalTourettes

When my daughter was that age she got a Santa gift that had the "Target Exclusive" label on the box. She says, "Finally Santa decided to shop at Target instead of his elves making it all!" BonkersMuffin

Duh...

I thought it was when my son goes to explain something and regardless of if he's right or wrong; rambles aimlessly using "and, um, uhm, and" multiple times over the course of 5 minutes, ultimately explaining why you actually DON'T have to eat your vegetables. bunz-o-matic

Bravo! 

When your kid tries to kidsplain to you and then you realize your kid is smarter than you! Lol 😂 No disrespect. This seriously just made my day. Ohsojme

TBH this sounds exactly like some crap my kid would make up so I totally get it lol! Like, embarrassing, right? But also proud your kid taught you something. I mean storybots teaches more about how a computer works than I am sure most average adults don't know/realize. unsanctimommy

King of Miami...

I used to take my kids down to a property I did groundskeeping for in Miami when the work was going to be fairly easy. They always had a blast running around and "helping."

They'd ask where we were going when we got in the car, and I'd say "Miami!"

They'd say "Oooh we love Your Ammee!"

I tried explaining it once, but gave up after a few minutes... So apparently now they think the entire city of "Ammee" belongs to me. Debaser626

Smile...

Me: what's the snake's name? My 4yo: snake's don't have names, they can't talk! Me: Aunt Rae had a snake named Smiley 4yo: no she didn't! Me: ... But she did. imLissy

I love this. Mine will tell me something that I did when I was her age, completely made up, and when I tell her I never did that she will tell me "you just forgot." the-mjolner-lisa

Sky High! 

My three year old son asked me where snow/rain comes from. I explained as best I could, how the water in lakes and rivers and on the ground gets turned into gas and rises, and so on. The first time I asked him to explain it back to me, he says "the water steps on the gas pedal and goes up in the sky!" I couldn't stop laughing when I figured out the misunderstanding :) evelyntheunbeliever

I prefer Strawberry...

My 4 year old is convinced that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. He will not abide other explanations. tinkertron5000

That isn't uncommon in many adults too... bhamnz

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.

The photographers, DJs, officiates, and planners of the wedding industry hold a unique perspective.

They get to witness the lead-up to the couple's important, deeply symbolic day. Sitting at the table in that context offers those industry professionals a glimpse of the mundane dynamics of couples before the big event.
