Parents Are Sharing The Most Hilarious Reasons Their Toddlers Have Cried
Anyone who has ever had to look after a toddler for more than a couple of hours knows that literally anything that even the smallest inconvenience has potential to set off a full-blown temper tantrum.
Maybe you've given them a different coloured plate, told them they can't share their dinner with the dog, or that they can't walk themselves to school - you still risk being on the receiving end of tears.
Things that made my toddler cry this week:
- I wouldn't let the dog drive him to daycare
- the bath was "too wet"
- he wanted syrup for breakfast...just syrup
- his sister "keeps looking at him"
- he wants shoes like his friend Jacob (there is no Jacob)
How about your kid?

Now, on the one hand, this behaviour is highly relatable. Who among us hasn't been set off by the tiniest thing at one time or another and ended up sobbing on the floor of the bathroom because you've run out of moisturiser? But on the other hand, those tears, red faces and screams aren't that funny to endure, especially if you're stuck in public with a little one.
3 wanted to ride his bike to pickup his brother at school.
Then he didn't want to.
Then he was pissed he wasn't riding his bike.
In the end, he rode his bike, but decided he was "done" halfway there.

Twitter user "Henpecked Hal" has sparked a debate about kids' most ludicrous tantrums after posting: "Things that made my toddler cry this week: - I wouldn't let the dog drive him to daycare - the bath was "too wet" - he wanted syrup for breakfast...just syrup - his sister "keeps looking at him" - he wants shoes like his friend Jacob (there is no Jacob) How about your kid?"
She wants to put on her diapers herself.
She wants to follow our neighbour's kids to their own school.
She wants to watch Barney all day.

Parents rushed to contribute, with such hilarious reasons as "She wants to follow our neighbour's kids to their own school", "wanted to watch Tom and jerry but that didn't come on until 5 and it was 3" and "I gave him a bottle when he asked for a bottle".
Well, as I'm sure many of us know all too well, the reasons kids have to kick off don't necessarily have to make any kind of sense...
I didn agree that am his child
Someone said chicken instead of meat ( it was meat )
I didn go and look in the toilet after he peed ( his very proud )
I didn allow him to show his dog a funny picture .
I didn hold his hand while he slept.

Hal did tweet at Chrissy Teigen to ask for a contribution, but sadly, she doesn't seem to have replied to him yet.
1- I cleaned his face
