25 Times Parents Amused Us With A Witty Take On Their Kids Temper Tantrums

Published 5 months ago

Taking one’s kids out in public comes with a lot of risk for the parents especially when you consider that most kids are prone to throwing tantrums for the most random of reasons. For the witnesses, it’s an awkward moment as well where we tend to discreetly sidle away or try not to antagonise the kid in question or overwhelm the parent trying to handle the situation even more. 

However, kid tantrums are a normal part of raising children and essential to their development. So parents have no choice but to deal with it as best they can, with patience, humour and a little bit of cleverness to outsmart the kid caught in the throes of their emotions. Since it is such an inevitable aspect of raising kids, we put together a funny collection of tweets shared by parents describing their own experiences of dealing with these moments with sass and hilarity. So scroll below to check out the funnier side of these temper tantrums and hopefully, it might help you access your lightness of being the next time you too have to deal with a raging tantrum from your spawn in public.

LakotaWolf (she/her): I’m not a parent, but this one seems mean (even as a joke.) AFAIK temper tantrums in young kids happen because they can’t process and express the emotions they’re feeling. So they’re not “acting like an ässhole” – they don’t KNOW what they’re doing or what they’re feeling. Older kids past age 7ish though? XD Yeah, if THEY’RE throwing a temper tantrum, that’s absolutely them being a bum orifice.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
