    Imagine how the parent feels. It gets worse. When I am reasoning, or negotiating with my kids, I sometimes feel like I am in the War Room talking to Trump supporters.

    This is a bit off topic but the replies reminded me off a situation years ago when my sister went with my mom to watch a musical and left her 3-year-old niece alone with me and my dad for a weekend.
    I don't live in the same country so she thought it would be a good idea for me to spend time with my niece while I am there.

    At the time my Dad and I thought it would be hilarious to teach my niece the Hilter salute.
    The sort of situation where one comes up with a "funny" idea and you sort of go with it.

    Turns out it was freaking hilarious. We are Germans which made it even funnier and my niece looked straight out of an SS propaganda video with blue eyes and blond hair.
    But unfortunately, my sister didn't think it was funny at all. Took her a long time get my niece to stop doing it. And she was pretty pissed.
    I tried to deny it, of course, but it wasn't too hard to figure it out. My dad was a bit worried so I took the whole blame for that one. But it was at least 50% his fault.
    Anyway, that was years ago my sister has no problem leaving her kids with me theses days.

    But yeah that was hilarious.

    I've never done baby talk to kids that can't talk. I literally talk to kids like I would a 30 year old.

    When they keep repeating the same question is a real madness point for a lot of parents.

    Annoying is very different then not well behaved; they are kids after all.

    Or it could be that you need to relax your judgement of others that are just jokingly relating some of the frustrations that commonly accompany parenting/child rearing.

    Your kids are the best buddy.

    For me the frustrating part is knowing I made the decision to have my kids and am one of two people actively raising them, so anything they do that pisses me off is partly if not largely my fault. And my wife's. Mostly hers.

    Even in my old age, I cringe when children do things they shouldn't do. I was trained very young. People try to reason with their children. You have to be the parent not the friend. Children don't need to know why they have to behave a certain way. They need to know what is accepted and what isn't. Many children train their parents. They cry and their parents pick them up or give them a bottle. Crying works so they cry. Screaming works even better.

    A dog can tell when you aren't happy with it's behavior. Children can do the same thing.

    A big annoyance/frustration/laugh I get is when I try to explain something to my son who is 3.5. He was asking who the Wizard of Oz was, and I had to try to tell him what a Wizard and Oz were, and why the words are essentially in that order. Every other word out of his mouth is "Daddy...do you know..." or "Daddy...why..."

    So in 4th grade we had to read a book and then were required to dress up as the main character and give a report in front of the whole class about it. My book was about the holocaust... soooo.. I dressed up as Hitler. I can't believe I was not expelled. I legit had no idea that it was inappropriate and I don't remember anyone even telling me it was. I just gave my report and that was that.

    Ya you're actually not supposed to do baby talk. Just talk to the kids like normal and they learn english. Because they're intelligent humans and not like a tree sloth or something.
