Things Kids Love That Drive Parents Crazy

By Wickedying @wickedying

As much as you love your kids, there are bound to be things that you just don’t understand about them, things that drive you bonkers. Hobbies, music, hairstyles, and clothing are all everyday elements that have the potential to push parents over the edge. The important thing to remember however, is that you are not alone when it comes to being dazed and confused, and this list proves it.

Modern Music

You may be able to get behind Beyonce, and even understand why your kids love Lady Gaga, but who on Earth are Cardi B, and Mac Miller? Whatever happened to good old-fashioned music, where you could hear the lyrics, and there wasn’t a curse word in sight? Remember when your parents said similar things about your taste in music? If you wake up one morning completely confused by your child’s taste in music, then it’s official, you have become what you always said you would never be, the uncool parent. Don’t worry, this is a normal part of growing up, for you and for your children. You aren’t supposed to understand, or even agree with, your child’s taste in music – it’s an unofficial, yet very real, fact of life.

White Sneakers

Why, oh why do kids insist on wanting to wear white sneakers when they must know full well that they are the equivalent of having cream carpets and white couches in a house full of toddlers? Apparently white sneakers are cool. What isn’t so cool is having to attempt to clean them after one day of wear. Thankfully, Shoescast.Com has come to the rescue of parents everywhere by providing top tips on how to keep white sneakers clean, and specifically the latest white Huaraches from Nike.


It wasn’t that long ago that children were subjected to the bowl cut, so where have all these modern hairstyles come from? One of the styles that really seems to annoy parents is the man-bun. First introduced in around 2013, the man-bun became the tell-tale sign that the male wearer was a hipster. Worse still is the teenager’s wish to dye their hair every color under the sun. Sometimes you just have to let a child experiment and on other occasions you need to step in with a mirror and ask them to take a long hard look at themselves.


It can be difficult to understand what your muttering teenager is saying at the best of times, but when they are throwing in a whole load of words that make absolutely no sense, things get even trickier. Just when you’ve got the hang of knowing what terms like “shade” and “Thirsty” mean (thanks Real Housewives of Atlanta), your teen throws words like “Hundo P” and “Fam” into the mix. Under no circumstances should you attempt to repeat these phrases as if you are down with the kids. Merely accept that this is how your kids talk now, and hope they don’t think this is acceptable in an examination situation.
