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

People Imagine The First Thing They'd Do If They Get To Heaven

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
