Parents Share The Reasons Their Kids Had Meltdowns And It Makes Zero Sense

Little kids are interesting creatures. We know that they're human, they have to be since we literally made them, but the way their tiny brains work is truly out of this world.

Parents are sharing the illogical reasons that their children completely freaked out and honestly, it's relatable. Just put yourself in their shoes for a second and imagine what it's like to ask for an apple and... receive one. That's just too traumatic to simply move on from and I totally get where these tiny humans are coming from.
