15 "Overheard" Stories About How Great It Is to Have a Child

By kindle /

We can talk about relationships between parents and children forever. However, family complexities only make our lives more interesting.

The Bright Side team compiled a few "overheard" stories proving that having children is a lot of fun.

  • My daughter just turned 10 years old. Since childhood, I taught her not to talk to strangers, but I decided to check if she’d listened to my lessons. I asked my friend, whom she didn’t know, to talk to her. On the agreed day, he met her at the entrance to our apartment building. The girl told him everything about our lives like a bird. But she warned him in advance: "My mom doesn’t let me talk to strangers, and she’ll be outside soon. So let’s talk faster!"

  • I was 35 years old. I was waiting for someone outside. I saw a mother with a boy who was not older than 2. Then suddenly the boy runs to me saying, “Dad! Dad!“ The mother stops him, saying, ”He is not your father." And then she adds, “Don’t scare the man!”

  • My friend has a 5-year-old son. I was at their place, and we were having tea. The kid runs into the room shooting at us with a toy gun. We played along and fell on the floor. The kid comes to us laughing and says, "Get up. It’s just a toy. If it were real, I would aim for your knees." My friend was shocked.

  • My husband, my son, and I went into a pharmacy. I needed to buy birth control pills. My son wondered, “What are these pills? Are you sick or something? Why do you need them then? What do they do?“ I decided to tell the truth: ”They are for children." My son got scared and asked, “For the new children...or for the old ones?”

  • My elder brother has a son. He has just started school. My brother buys him toys, different devices, and new clothes to motivate him. When I was in my first year in school, he promised me that if I finished school with excellent grades, I would be able to have a tooth made of gold. I was really enthusiastic for many years.
