The Funniest Things Parents Have Heard From Childless People Around Them

You may have spent a lot of time around children, helped to raise your younger siblings, or even spent your high school years making your pocket money through hours of babysitting, but until you have children of your own, you don’t know what you’re in for.

If you’re the first one in your friend group to have children, you’ll quickly learn just how little the people around you who are child-free actually know about children. That’s how you end up hearing comments like “Can’t you just tell the baby to move with your mind?”

“Recently, we were visiting our friends, who are child-free by choice, but they really love my kid.
