Parenting is a funny, scary thing. You make a little almost-clone of yourself, and then you try to keep it from dying while you mould a decent human being out of it, eventually steering it into the nebulous, ineffable phase of life called ‘adulthood’. There’s no test, no qualification that you have to get first—you just mix some bodily fluids and that’s it. Boom. Another human lining up to take its place on this pale blue dot drifting in space. And this little human is a quasi-blank slate onto which you can project pretty much anything you want. Right from the beginning, it’s already got your genes inside of it wielding a colossal amount of influence on its life’s direction, and then on top of that, its voracious psyche will soon gobble up whatever lessons you teach it—whether intentionally or otherwise. The delightful thing is, of course, that no matter how much sway genetic coding will have, or how effective your no doubt benevolent brainwashing tactics may be, that kid will always have a mind of its own to some extent.

To wit, this Ask Reddit thread asking the question: ‘Parents of Reddit, What Lessons Have You Tried to Teach to Your Kids That Backfired?’ You can check out the full thread here, but below are some highlights:
