If you have kids, you are NO stranger to all the crazy reasons that they’ll throw a fit. And yet, no matter how many tantrums you’ve witnessed, you’ll never stop being amazed at the things kids can freak out over. So we scoured Twitter for some of the funniest, craziest, most ludicrous reasons kids cry. Then, we asked our followers – Why did your kids cry?
Here’s what they told us!
3 asked for strawberries but had a meltdown when I made him share with 7, dumping the strawberries on the floor. Trying to be helpful, 5 picked up the strawberries bc 3 refused. 3 began crying anew bc 5 picked up the strawberries. Is it bedtime yet? #whymykidiscrying #momsquad

My toddler is crying because I opened a Band-aid.
That she climbed onto a counter & into a cupboard to get.
Then brought to me & told me she needed the Band-Aid for her owie.
Which she then pointed out.
But apparently did not want me to actually open or use said Band-Aid.

Why my daughter is crying: She left her imaginary dog at the grocery store and I won’t go back to get it.
Just kidding. I totally went back for it.

Because the water he wanted went down the drain and he wants that specific drop of water, no other will do, and why won’t the drain give it back.

My 2yo is crying because I won’t let her hold a burning candle and earlier she cried because I wouldn’t let her use a gluestick as chapstick and I wish I could ask the lady from the drugstore if these are the moments I’m supposed to be enjoying every minute of.

My 5 year old is crying because “kid” is not a palindrome like “mom” and “dad,” and that’s not fair.

First 7 was crying because 5 “bit” him. 5 was crying because she didn’t bite him. Then 7 was crying because I accurately determined that he bit himself in a twisted ploy to get his sister in trouble and make her cry.
Now I’m crying and I need a margarita.

My 5yo accidentally said she wanted either 0 or 10 choc chips & when I called her out on her slip up and said “fine, you can have zero” She lost her shit & started bawling saying ” it was an accident, it was an accident daddy!”

My toddler cried because I showed her a picture of Mr. Bean.

Oh God, just remembered that one time he was crying because he (himself) was in his own spot in his bed and he wanted himself to move so that he’d have the spot.

Because he can’t wear his shoes AND his rain boots at the same time. In the bathtub.
