Children are not just a joy for their parents, but they’re also little representatives of humanity who can think beyond stereotypes. That’s why their actions and sayings are so necessary at times. They help us remember that life is an exciting game full of humor.
At Bright Side, we love the ingenuousness of children because it provides us with many reasons to laugh along with unexpected wisdom.

“Daughter, choose whatever you like!” We’re standing in the middle of a supermarket and I feel like a great mom. I’m ready to carry home pounds of ice cream and 200 teddy bears. My daughter walks along the shelves and looks at them attentively. Then she whispers, “I want to have a receipt, Mom.” © valenayaspers / twitter
- Some time ago, I noticed that my sixth graders began to use perfume. This surprised me, but I thought that the scent of different perfume was better than the scent of dirty socks, for example. Today I found out what explained their sudden love for perfume and cologne — the math teacher was allergic to perfume. I asked their parents to hide the perfume. © feldkurat / pikabu
- Once, my friend was telling me about her daughter, and I said, “Listen, maybe she’s having a 3-year crisis.” My friend replied, “How do I know? It won’t stop even if I know what it’s called.” © svetachalova / twitter
- I stood in line at the bank with my little daughter. They showed different videos on the screen so that people wouldn’t get bored. One of the videos was about banking fraudsters who took out a loan and disappeared. Suddenly, a bristled man appeared on the screen. My daughter, pointing her finger at the monitor, said, “Mommy, look, it’s Daddy!” © Elena Vasilishina / facebook

- When my kiddo was about 4 years old, I heard my son talking to himself in the bathroom and went to check on him. He was using a small piece of cardboard to push a spider in the direction of the bathtub, talking to the spider the entire time. “Excuse me, sir. Pardon me, sir, can I invite you to perhaps travel this way? Oh, no, not that way, sir. Over here, sir. Pardon me, sir, I don’t feel you’re listening…” © chickaboomba / reddit
We were having dinner today. My eldest son asks:
— “Mom, is it true that every child should have a father?”
— “Then why are there 3 children in our family and only one father?” © 581rus / pikabu
I picked up my son from daycare and we were going home. He asked,
— “Dad, how much is 2+3?”
— “Son, you can work it out yourself.”
— “I can’t.”
— “I’m wearing mittens.” © prohladniy07 / pikabu
