9 Hilariously Terrible Insults We’ve Received from Our Kids

“Did you take a shower today because I don’t think it worked?”

If you’ve had such tactless questions like that thrown your way, chances are you have children … which is why many can sympathize with Johanna Stein, the author and comedian behind the book, How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane: And Other Lessons in Parenting from a Highly Questionable Source.

In a video promoting her book, which was published last April, Stein showcases the various creatively phrased insults and innocent (yet still biting) observations her 4-year-old daughter has lobbed at her. With more than two million views in a week, the video has clearly struck a chord so I asked other moms to share how their own children have pushed their buttons just by opening their mouths. The results will … well, they probably won’t surprise you, but at the very least, they’ll have you nodding your un-showered, stinky head.


“Ma, you are SO much prettier than you were before … That’s a says a LOT, Ma. I mean, you are over 40 … I mean, how many kids can say that about their moms in their 40s … well, unless they got plastic surgery.”
