It’s time we all stop pretending and just admit it: Kids are dumb.
And if you think about it, they kind of should be! After all, they’re kids! Their little brains have a lot of learning to do before they grow up and run the world. But until that day, well, they’re just not the sharpest tools in the shed.
What’s the dumbest thing you remember doing as a child? I once broke my arm after tripping over a bicycle. I wasn’t riding the bicycle. It was just on the ground next to me. I also broke an arm after deciding to go on the monkey bars right after eating greasy french fries. One time, my younger siblings and I prepared an entire presentation for our parents that ended in us asking to take an egg from the fridge and try to hatch it so we could have a pet chicken. So yeah. I think I can say with certainty that kids are not typically geniuses.
In a recent Twitter thread, people shared the dumbest things they did as kids, and holy Moses, they did not disappoint. (Well, maybe they disappointed their teachers.)
