Kids say the darndest things, don't they? It's hard not to be charmed by the naive honesty of children. Sure, sometimes they can make you look like a fool, like when they ask questions that you couldn't possibly know the answers to or force you to do math in public. I'm dreading the day when my son will find out that I don't, in fact, have the answers to everything. I should really start studying my geography now to prepare.
Since kids have no filter whatsoever, they tend to reveal information that they might think of as being no big deal when, in reality, it reveals WAY too much about their parents' personal lives. This results in some seriously awkward moments for parents and hilarity for the people around them. Keep scrolling to read some of the best examples of kids embarrassing their Moms and Dads.
Also, that last kid is a total narc. A word of advice: never try to pull a fast one with a tiny truth-teller around.
If you like reading about kids embarrassing their parents, this is the article for you. Although it might make you re-think procreating.

After school, the teacher takes the mother aside, telling the mom to "hide their bedroom toys better," because it's inappropriate for their son to find them and bring them to school.
