Why is it when you try to tell your kids something, they always say 'I know mom'? You're only trying to do what's best for them.

Kids always think they "know it all"......unfortunately the things they "know" all comes from idiotic TV shows like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore........even if they say they know, MAKE SURE you still try to get the point across that you were trying to make, that way you know you tried so that when they still go out and mess up, you can say "I told you so" 8)

I have a question.. And since you're the only one I really know that had little kids, you're the only one I can really ask.
Did you tell your children anything about the CT incident? I'm just curious how a parent would handle a situation like that, or if they would just avoid the topic.

Yes, I told my 6 year old daughter "See, this is why I'm so strict on you, because I don't want you to turn out to be like that guy, that's how much I love you, understand?" she said "Yes Daddy" :-)
Report as
Aw, that's sweet :) Just from what you've said about her on here, I can tell she is very bright :)
Report as
Yup, her teacher has to give her extra work because it's too easy for her.

Since I'm a kid, I'll answer.
Sometimes it's what Tony said. I don't want to admit that I didn't know that, so instead I try to almost reassure her that I know what I'm doing and don't need my hand held.
Other times it seems like she repeats herself ALL THE TIME!!!

Some harryoz bleeding heart, it was on this question, i got told off by my teacher for falling a skeep in class, and i told him to shut up so i could get back to sleep, and he gave me detention, should i go. I think i stabbed him several times with my words, i think he hobbled off leaving a blood trail of letters every where...... of course there was no swearing.
Report as
No swearing? Even by him? I'm impressed
Report as
He was to busy trying to be older and smarter then he really was, and i dont really swear to start with. So i just stabbed him to death with my words, he said mikale and kuu were trying to scare kids into seeing things their way. He was trying to blame every one but the kid who fell asleep in class for him falling asleep in class
Report as
Kuuipo and Mikale are great role models.. I don't see how anyone could just hate on them..
Report as
Even naf came and hollerd at the kid lol, he has such a way with words, it truly impresses me when he talks all serious like.
Report as
Oh yeah.. I know. I get surprised again and again when he's in an argument.

Because we feel akwerd when our parents try to tell us something! And because most kids think they know more than they're parents so they don't want to look like they are wrong!

I think its a combination of all of these answers, how ever i would like to add, some times its a defensive answer, a few parents can with out realizing it state things in an abrasive way to kids, and some times we make them feel stupid with out meaning to. Im not saying coddle the children but we can step back and take a breath before we snap our answers out.
