Too smart for their age!
Parenting is not easy, especially if your kids are way smarter than you expected or gave them credit for, like these folks right here:
My youngest hacked our Netflix parental code. She put light grease on the remote and got me to input the code when she wasn’t looking. Then she noted the numbers I’d pressed and went through the combinations later. I’m both frightened and impressed.— Ed O'Loughlin (@edoloughlin) September 6, 2020
My 6 year old grandson cracked his Mom’s phone by watching her enter the code in the reflection on her glasses. Then linked it to another device and read her text messages for weeks. He is 8 now. They change passwords weekly.— Rick the LSU fan (@Tgerfan54) September 6, 2020
My 2 year old can pick simple locks with her cute hair clips.— Lee Brontide (@AmmoniteInk) September 7, 2020
So I'd like to know how old your youngest is, so I know how long I might be able to maintain an illusion of control in my household.
I shared this with my oldest daughter and she told me it reminded her of my younger daughter.— Dr. Pepper’s Husband (Kee Hinckley) (@nazgul) September 7, 2020
Apparently she once asked me for the access code while I was asleep, and I told her.
I do not remember this!
My son used my fingerprint to open my phone while I slept 😂— Katherine Trill (@KittyTrill) September 7, 2020
Our then-15 y.o. social engineered my husband by saying his phone wifi access didn't work and using my husband's phone to "check the issue". He added himself as a wifi admin so he could disable restrictions each night. All summer he played games until 4am until I found him out.— Kristen Pol (@kristen_pol) September 7, 2020
Very, very impressive. My son ran two school planners - one with all of his good comments and one with his bad ones. Guess which one we got to see...?🤔— David 'Carajo' Forest (@discodaveforest) September 7, 2020
by age 8 I knew all our ATM PIN numbers by watching them from the backseat at the drive-thru ATM— Kickiniteasy (@kickiniteasy) September 7, 2020
I would breathe condensation on the window to write them down & got caught
Mom was very mad we had been driving around town with our ATM pins written on the back seat window
My nephew installed facebook, signed up himself and went live and his only 5 years..after being caught he said Instagram was tricky pic.twitter.com/bBao3N8Ab1— Consi 💦💦💦 (@Leeyandah3) September 7, 2020
25 years ago, before internet, my son was 14. He lied about his age, ordered computer parts by phone and COD. The parts would show up before I got home. He built his own computer in our basement. I had no idea until his sisters let me know. He owns his own computer company now.— Laura Zinszer (@lzapp16) September 8, 2020
When my chn were 2&3 I put chocolate decorations near the top of the Christmas tree to stop them being eaten. One day I found my 3yo on a chair passing each chocolate down to my 2yo to put in a plastic bowl. I wasn't sure whether to tell them off or praise their teamwork 😂.— Dr Vicki M (@vickisess) September 7, 2020
My friend’s daughter took the iPad into their room for the unlock and recorded it on the family’s Mac in real time. My daughter told me and I thought it was too clever to rat her out. Kids are gonna find a way.— kamknauss (@mamakamkamk) September 7, 2020
Ha ha. My old school trick for the many notes home for bad behaviour was to trace a map of Ireland on grease proof paper, add all the rivers and what not then grade it as an A+ exam then ask a parent to sign it. Voila traced signature at the ready!— contenta at home (@joyredmond) September 6, 2020
I took my daughter's phone away it was after hours but I let her say goodbye, 2 hours later heard her voice so I went to her room. She had taken her sim card out of phone and put in an old phone to continue talking, it never would have occurred to me... Trickery Genius!— eve cas (@Lady_Ecas) September 8, 2020
My two little ones cracked the combo on the lock for the Happy Meal toys display while I was in line ordering food. Turned around and they were standing on either side of it looking guilty as hell. I walked up to them and they opened it to show me.— 🇵🇹🇺🇸 Suzanne Scott 🧢🙃 (@SuzanneNotSue) September 8, 2020
lol .... my parents once tried locking our sega controllers away in an old safe. sadly for them, my brother and I learned from computer games that you can open some safes by turning the dial and listening for the click. it works haha— Manic 🏳️🌈 @ liddat lah (@manic_intent) September 8, 2020
