Parenthood is wild, and no handbook can tell you how to parent every child, because parenting is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, what works on one child may not work for another, and in other cases, our approaches to parenting may not work as intended.
For example, one Reddit user named -Don-Draper- went to the forum site and asked parents to share experiences in which they taught their child a lesson only to have it backfire. Many of the responses are hilarious, while others are universal lessons to us all on how not to parent.
As I read through the different responses, I was honestly blown away. In many cases, you would have honestly assumed the same as the parent did, only to likely fail as they did as well. With that in mind, I cherry-picked and found you the best responses, and listed them below. But you can also check out the sources where I have linked the Reddit forum for you to give a gander, as well.
