I think I'm nearly ready to be a parent. I'm looking forward to trolling my little ones. I'll tell them ridiculous things, then patiently wait, reveling in the knowledge that one day those tiny white lies will result in unforeseen hilarities. Kind of karmic gifts to the comic gods.

That desire clearly means I'm ready to be a parent, right? Because I'm ready for this.

Most of that was typical BuzzFeed "humor," but I admit I laughed at the kid playing with the laser pointer dot

My husband told our toddler that mommy doesn't have a penis because she was irresponsible and broke it off.  Despite my attempts at reeducation, whenever my son starts thinking / speaking about his penis, he points at mommy and says "mommy penis broken".

You and my husband would get along well.

Nobody is ever truly ready to be a parent. I'm not sure I would want to raise a baby with someone who thought they were.

Caveat: I have no kids, no SO, and know for a fact I'm not ready to be a daddy

you are ready to be a parent as soon as you can pop one out

note tho that you are not ready to smoke until you are 21

I would be an awful parent. I'd teach my kids how to behave, how to learn stuff, and how to be decent people (or at least pray they have better morals than dad...). They'd learn that video games aren't real and that you can't emulate that stuff in real life and the proper use of the word f*ck. My kids would play GTA at age 10 and there would be no issues.

Of course, none of this would be possible with my genetics. So my boyfriend will be the sperm donor, or we'd adopt.

I don't think anyone is "ready" to be a parent (at least for their first child). Sure they may 'think' they are ready, and sure most make out alright...but 'ready', not even they are 'intellectuals'...

hahaha laser pointer. I have a great video of my kids chasing around the laser pointer on my VHoldr cam. And they weren't toddlers. My wife accuses me of screwing up the kids by using too much sarcasm...or lying as she calls it. When they were young they didn't care for broccoli. I would name the broccoli after their cousins or friends....they loved eating it then. And they still laugh about that years later. Kids don't forget stuff....even if it seems silly.

And yes, when you are the only male in the household (for me, two teen daughters plus wife, plus two female cats) the strong urge to move to Alaska or some other locale far away is perfectly natural.

The time flies though. Enjoy them while they are young. I consider myself lucky. The kids are loving and helpful around the house. They cook, clean, do their own laundry. Frees me up for video games and goofing on fark.

When I realized that most of what my parents told me were lies and that every time they said "because I said so" it meant they didn't have a logical reason for something, I decided I was done with them. About a week after my 18th birthday I moved out and haven't seen or spoken to them since. That was 12 years ago.

Oh, come on! Using a laser pointer to entertain your kid isn't irresponsible.

In fact, at some point after he figured out it was me, he'd tell me to do it again and again, so he could chase the dot.
Now he tells me to kill random characters or animals when I'm playing computer games... He really loves the V.A.T.S. function when I play Fallout 3.

3 y/o's are fun, but when every sentence out of their mouthes begin with a 'Why' or ends with a question mark, then you learn to make shiat up, just so you at least entertain yourself when having to listen to seriously stupid questions such as 'Where are you?' when the kid IS LOOKING RIGHT AT YOU!

I'm beginning to understand how myths and religions start. It's all invented by tired dad's who have had to take too much shiat from their kids.

We made that mistake with our first.  He'd ask the same question over and over, and we'd answer about 15 different ways.  Instead, we should have told him one time, and smacked him upside the head to remember, because now he wants to have about a gazillion discussions about every friggin' thing.  And I would happily go back to fussy baby sleeplessness, because puberty sleeplessness is much worse.  Trust me.

to all you new parents out there...remember when people talked about how hard it is raising a baby but you decided to blow it off and have a kid anyway, only to find out later that those people were correct? well after you come to grips with that, then people with will start saying things like "just wait until he/she is a teenager. they're easy when they're babies", and you're going to blow that off too. In your mind that cute little smiling poop factory is always going to be your precious little snugly ball of smiles.

And therein lies the fatal flaw of many parents of teenagers. At some point in you child's life, whether you like it or not, their mind will start evaluating the world on its own with your consent. They will not believe everything you say just because you say it. They will not do everything you tell them just because it was you who said it. For lack of a better word, at some point their mind will start behaving as that of an adult. Meaning they are taking in the world around them, but making their own decisions on what makes sense, what adds up, what should be considered and what should be ignored.

And parents who fail to adapt their parenting to this change make the same mistakes again and again. And keep in mind somewhere in that teen's head is a memory of you lying about Santa, lying about where babies come from, lying about drugs, etc, etc. There will come a time when they look up you with skeptical eyes, and from that point on you must treat them as such. Not only must you learn to explain many thing, but you must learn that you explanation must make sense. Because that young adult will hear what you say, evaluate it, and if he comes up with "My mom/dad is full of shiat" you will be fighting an uphill battle for everything from that point on.

It's just like the first time you hear a boss or a teacher say something you know is 100% false. From that point on, everything they say will be doubted, double checked and even cast aside and ignored if need be. And you ask yourself if they're wrong about this, what else have they been wrong about and I just didn't realize it yet.

That will happen when your children become young adults. If you don't grasp that and adapt, you, and all your advice, lessons, and orders will be pushed aside as meaningless.

That's because they're becoming adults. Most adults are assholes. And most adults think they know far more than they really do. Look at everything from Fark threads to national political debates. Adults love pointing out the flaws and shortcomings of others. Adults love learning that someone was wrong and rubbing their face in it. [citation needed] is a catchphrase of adults, not children. Understand that your children will become this.

I'm not saying the teens will be right. Of course they will frequently be wrong. But you as the parent need to make extra certain you're actually the one who's right AND for good reasons that make sense. They might still rebel. But if you're wrong or too lazy to show why you're tight, they  certainly will. and they'll remember it from that point on.

Someday you'll stop being "Dad" who checks under the bed for monsters and explains why the sky is blue. Someday you'll just be some old guy who spouts just as much wrong bullshiat as everyone else.

oh, and teenage boys are assholes who think they know absolutely ever ...


I think this thread is teaching me where fark's angry atheist brigade comes from., and I'm feeling like the Joker mocking Batman's sturm and batarang.

Ooooh mommy and daddy lied to you about Santa Claus and thus you rebel against all adults for the rest of your life? Grow up, junior.

And yes, teenagers reach that point where they think they know everything, meaning they've reached the DANGEROUS part of their ignorance. I like that old saying "when I was 18 I thought my dad was the stupidest man that ever lived and when I turned 40 I found he was the smartest."

I do agree with the point of changing things up as your kids are becoming adults. I find it quite harmless for children to have a magical fun time, like Calvin. They have the rest of their lives to be boring adults.

And someday that attitude will be seen for what it is. Just some guy who's too lazy or irritable to make a good case for something. And in that teen's mind he will cross the line from "I'm doing what my parents say because they're right/I believe them" to "I know their words are empty and I will only do what they say (or make them think I did) to avoid being hassled".

You lose the high ground. You're not to be believed. You're the liar. You're the guy who's deliberately trying to avoid making sense. And don't be surprised when that teen is off doing the very things you told them not to. Which is why in my post I said "whether you like it or not". I can tell from your post that you don't like it. It irritates you. It's annoying. You get fed up with arguing and debating. You don't like it.

But it's still true. The say your words get analyzed and possibly discarded if you're not careful is the day you lost.

Someday you'll stop being "Dad" who checks under the bed for monsters and explains why the sky is blue. Someday you'll just be some old guy who spouts just as much wrong bullshiat as everyone else.

why are you lecturing me on how to be a parent? did you take a correspondence course or something?


Nope. Just a decade of being observant and knowing what fails. Failure is the best teacher, and a lot of parents are good at that form of teaching.

taurusowner: And someday that attitude will be seen for what it is. Just some guy who's too lazy or irritable to make a good case for something. And in that teen's mind he will cross the line from "I'm doing what my parents say because they're right/I believe them" to "I know their words are empty and I will only do what they say (or make them think I did) to avoid being hassled".

You lose the high ground. You're not to be believed. You're the liar. You're the guy who's deliberately trying to avoid making sense. And don't be surprised when that teen is off doing the very things you told them not to. Which is why in my post I said "whether you like it or not". I can tell from your post that you don't like it. It irritates you. It's annoying. You get fed up with arguing and debating. You don't like it.

But it's still true. The say your words get analyzed and possibly discarded if you're not careful is the day you lost.


I think it's now very obvious you have daddy issues.

SearchN: As someone with a month old daughter..

Don't. Trust me, just don't. I miss being able to sleep for more than 3 hours at a time (if I am lucky).

/Love the kid to death, but I really miss sleep.



Sounds like a hoot. Tell me- why did you do this again? A please leave out the "promulgation of the species" and "you were a child once!!derp1!!" arguments.

/wife and I never wanted them

Just another banner year at the taurusowner household.

"Dad, I want to head down to the dump to shoot rats with Joey."
"No son."
"ARRRGH YOU'RE JUST FULL OF SELFISH LIES. I'M LEAVING THIS TWO BIT TOWN"
"Well, the truth is I think that Joey is a two bit punk that is going to get you hooked on smack and introduce you to floozies that you are going to hook up with and either knock up or get an STD with, probably both. But if I tell you any of those things, you are going to be excited about shooting rats, shooting smack, and drilling floozies, and will become extremely defensive about your friend, and will begin a 6 hour rebuttal about how cool he actually is. Now, since we've had said 6 hour rebuttal every day for the last 6 months, I think it's fair to say STFU and good DAY, son."

#28; when you find out you're pregnant, the first thing out of your mouth is "this is going to totally RUIN my wedding!"

/it's what my ex-assistant said back in August
//was more upset about having to cancel her wedding in April
///also upset about having to stop smoking and drinking
