Many parents believe they have the best interests of their children at heart. They try to influence their children’s choices of education, friends, and appearance. But this can prevent the children from finding their own happiness and identity. Only by learning from their own mistakes, they can grow as individuals and become independent of their parents’ expectations. Unfortunately, not everyone around me agrees with this view.
You avoid crowds of people, try to go unseen. Every night you stay in different places. You see your face on posters all over the city. You’re everywhere, and they’re after you... No, you’re not some wanted fugitive. You’re loved by every person on the planet!
Being a mom requires tons of patience. Just imagine all those ’redesigned’ walls, meltdowns over random things, and food everywhere on the floor—kids leave a mess wherever they go! But hey, it’s not that bad when you can laugh it off. Some of these mothers used humor to cope with different situations. Get ready for some seriously hilarious moments!

We may enjoy a variety of fabrics today, but back in Tudor’s era there was a sort of “fabric hierarchy”. Thing is, not everyone was allowed to wear posh clothes made of silk — since silk was reserved for the members of the royal family. Knights could opt for velvet. Also, common people had to be really careful about colors — for instance, it was prohibited to wear purple. As ridiculous as it might seem today, in 15th and 16th century England, the wrong color and fabric choice could land people in legal trouble.
Black stripes on yellow school buses aren’t an element of design. They’re actually metal rails put along the sides and the back of the bus to protect its rather thin walls. In case of a collision, they absorb most of its force. It means that the crash doesn’t affect large areas. These “rub rails” are also positioned in strategically important spots. The lowest one runs at the floor level. The middle matches the bottom of the seats. And the top one corresponds either to the top of the seats or the bottom of the window.
You pull up to a hotel and see a no vacancy sign. But don’t necessarily believe it. Hotels usually do this when they only have 2 or 3 rooms left. Instead, try calling the front desk to see if they have rooms.Hotel star ratings aren’t always reliable as the rating systems vary between countries. In Italy, for example, a hotel can be given 5 stars just for having a 24-hour reception desk, receptionists that speak 3 languages, and rooms that start at 16 square meters. Instead of using stars, look at ratings or reviews instead.Booking late can also get you the best deals. If your stay is not urgent, try booking a room on the day of the stay. If the hotel isn’t full, you’ll likely get a discount. Hotel managers reduce room rates last minute to fill them.
Sleep is one of the most important processes that allows us to “reboot” and have enough power to do something new. This is why the quality of our sleep has a huge significance. A lot of factors affect sleep, from the pillow we sleep on to the smells we sense when we’re snoozing.
One of the main reasons why it’s difficult to get rid of a mess is inertia. When we bring things into our home, we fail to arrange a neat storage system and automatically put things on shelves randomly, thinking it’s a temporary solution and that we’ll find the right place for them later. But eventually, things stay there, creating a mess.
Living alone is an important step in every person’s life. And it’s no secret that when you still live at your parents’ place, you tend to idealize the notion of becoming an independent person and having your own place. We’re sorry to break it to you, but not everything is always so peachy. So if you’re thinking about moving out or feel like remembering those new emotions you had when you gained your independence (like feeling like you needed an adult but were actually the only adult in charge around), you should check out these comments that we compiled for you.
Raising kids is a complicated activity. Parents need to manage to keep their authority but at the same time not overstep the mark. The most difficult thing is to not start laughing when a kid figures out everything in their own way and when something turns out completely different from what you expected.
Raising kids is a fun but trying adventure. Of course, children are the flowers of life, and nothing beats the beauty of birth and the growth of a new person, but the rough truth is that dealing with kids on a daily basis is not all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes it’s a literal mess, and these Reddit users know it like nobody else.
When cats get bored, they might choose unexpected or even unpleasant ways to entertain themselves. For example, they can start playing with everything that comes near their paws and end up leaving the whole space in a total mess. In this case, their owners have to look for a solution as quickly as possible, and sometimes it results in something very witty.
Many people are used to judging others by their looks and drawing superficial conclusions based on their external features. But Sherlock Holmes himself would envy some of the methods these people use to figure things out. And they would certainly agree with the opinion that a home reflects the personality of its owner.
For men, their sense of humor has always been somewhat of an art. Men can find a way out of almost any situation. If they want to dry their jeans, something divine will happen — and they can justify any mess that they have in their homes.
A guy comes to visit an acquaintance and sits on her bed wearing his street pants (jeans that haven’t been washed for a month, and the dude had been hitchhiking). His friend screams like a wounded bird. At first, the guy doesn’t understand what’s wrong at all. When he figures it out, he exclaims, “Things are more precious to you than people!” Another guy (this is a story from my life) helped his acquaintance with renovations. For example, he painted the windows. He doesn’t bother to lay down newspaper, and he has never even heard of masking tape. The glass gets covered with paint, and there is paint everywhere on the floor. His acquaintance is unhappy. The guy is offended — he came to the rescue and he worked hard! And she grumbles something about disgust, instead of thanking him. Things are more precious to her, than people.
“I turned around for one second,” is how most of the funniest stories that involve kids start. Every parent can relate to a situation where 5 minutes of silence can lead to disastrous, yet laughable consequences. Sometimes it seems that, in the kids universe, time is moving at a different speed and they can manage to make a huge mess in the blink of an eye.
People say, “Silence is golden unless you have a toddler.” But this isn’t always true. If children or pets are quiet, it’s worth checking in on what they’re doing. Some people find this quiet to be anything but pleasant — but rather, extremely uproarious — and decide to share these photos of how their little ones explored the world so that we could all share a laugh.
What do you pay attention to when you visit your friend’s place? Some people look at the decor and the furniture, others look at the kinds of books that are on the shelves (if there are any books at all), and some people just play with the cute pet the person lives with. Few people actually pay attention to a mess even though it can say a lot about the person who made it.
Children make us happy. And they also make a mess at home and make you feel like there are more things than you can possibly do. But inventive parents from all over the world don’t just accept these difficulties and continue working on new ways to improve their lives...
The dogs of this breed are smart, adorable, and can always find a way out of any situation. For example, they can pretend to be innocent after stealing an ice cream even if the evidence is there on their nose. And if an owner is going to have a serious talk with its husky because of the mess it’s made, just one adorable look is enough to make them forget everything.
It’s so easy to hurt a person with a word or an action during a fight. The resentment can linger for much longer after the fight is over, ruining the relationship. Bright Side chose 7 things you should never ever do while fighting with your loved ones.
Mess at home is most often caused not by a person’s laziness or lack of self-respect, but simply because we can’t find places to keep all of our things. This is especially true if your living space is comparatively small. We at Bright Side have found 15 examples of home storage that prove you really can find a place for everything.
