Clever? I don't think she was plotting to ruin her parent's relationship. She just didn't know what she thought she knew, and spoke ignorantly like most children do. Boo-ya that rhymed.

10 - if you believe that most children speak ignorantly, then either you don't have kids or your kids screwed you up. They say what they see; sure they miss a few things here and there, but that's not ignorance.

70 - It never once crossed my mind. Don't try and justify the fact that you were a little shit by claiming that most kids want their parents to break up.

10- Actually, yes that is ignorance. You said it yourself, they say what they see, and when they miss a few things, they don't ask to clarify. Ignorance when it comes to children is when they don't know any better. And in this case, that's exactly what's going on here

My unfortunate circumstance being that I didn't want my parents to split up. Now, after 18yrs, I am glad that they did. I didn't realize how abusive my biological father was. I haven't spoken to him in over 8yrs because of the things he did to me and my sisters... I only found out what he did to my mother in this last year. SCARY stuff.

Hey the kid might just be honest... The op never refuted the claim in the post she may have implied otherwise but never came out and said she was innocent

92-Because if the mother were really in the wrong I highly doubt she would leave that part out purely for a good story on FML.

Well, to be a truly good manipulator, or politician of whatever, one must not lie, but instead simply leave out certain, and undesirable things. Rather than downright lying

My parents shoved a spoonful of mustard in my sister's mouth when she was younger and started cursing, apparently she's never said the word since and she's 20 now

I was beat and I'm not fucked up. All the hateful, rude, and disrespectful people I know are products of "beating your kids makes them fucked up, so let's not do that" parents.

I got a spanking when I was young. I learned my lesson every time. I was never whooped with a belt, but only threatened. I knew that my parents would actually do what they said, so being threatened with the belt was enough to straighten me out! We are not talking about punching a child. They wouldn't get bruises. It does not "fuck up" any child if they get spankings. It actually teaches them quite justly and well that something they did was wrong.

46 - Funny enough the majority of people I know who were spanked as kids turned out to be well adjusted individuals with good morals and values who respect their parents, whereas the majority of people I know who weren't spanked turned out to be the kind of kids who go drinking every weekend (I'm 17 by the way so this is underage drinking) and say things like "God, will you just shut up mom."

Okay, let people raise their kids how they want. Spanking is not child abuse, though I would never do that to my child when/if I have kids. My parents never hit us because they did not want to show us at all that hitting is okay in any circumstance. We got time outs and we were told that they were disappointed in our actions and that our behavior was unacceptable and to come out of time out after we had thought about what we had done and were ready to apologize. This was effective for me and my

62, well I'm not part of that majority. I was never hit as a kid, I've never gone out drinking or any of that stupid crap.

I don't really like all these generalizations about people who were or were not spanked. Both my sister and I were. I have genuinely grown to fear angering or disappointing my parents due to potential consequences. (Pretty much, I'm Butters from South Park. You can imagine how much fun I am.) My sister has become resilient to all forms of punishment, and is one of those "God, mom, will you shut up" people. I personally don't think either is optimal. Is it solely due to the spank

#75 sure you can raise your kids like that and sometimes and they come out fine but it all depends on the kid. Personally if I was raised that way I would just do whatever the hell I wanted. I was whooped as a kid and now I am a lot more respectful and well behaved than other kids my age.

Reply

51- Agreed that's how I was raised when I was younger and after that they would explain what I did wrong, but I would also get about 3 warning before hand.

There is a difference between spanking and beating. I was spanked as a child and so was my brother, we both turned out fine. I find it hard to believe that people are scarred for life over being spanked. Being beaten is a different story.

Reply

75- I like what you're saying. The spanking was my parents last resort. Everyone knows that even the best of children can be hard to handle at times. The spanking will also be a last resort for me when I am a parent. It will never come to that unless my husband and I have tried everything else, like the things you said your parents did to correct you, and it doesn't work. So to a certain extent, I don't like spanking either. But if nothing else works, I know that will.

#26 - these days kids her age are having kids. Pretty sure she knew what she was doing, mom's probably the one that dishes out the discipline and dad's a soft cock.

Reply

All the ten year olds I know are intelligent enough to know the repercussions of saying something like that and wouldn't say it to get out of trouble.

Reply

If she didn't know what she was saying, why would she say exactly that? I'm not implying that her intention was to ruin their relationship, but she's definitely old enough to try to shift the blame to someone else - kids start doing it before they can even talk properly. So, yeah, she's definitely a little bitch.

Reply

Hey why is everyone assuming a lie... OP never actually denies the claim in the post. Implies perhaps but it is entirely possible that the FML is he found out ... Usually people set the story straight in FMLs

Wow. If I ever did that at my age, my parents would have probably tore me a new one, or just go through the tried and true method of sending me to live out in the backyard in a tent for an extended period

Reply

When I was that age, I remember camping out in a tent in the backyard was possibly the most fun I could ever have!

Reply

Haha!. Same here 14!. Except I'd be banished to the garage. No fresh air for me. AND they'd rip me a new one. Not or's. I'd get both.

Dude, your daughter's a bitch. I'd go through and take EVERYTHING out of her room bar the mattress and two changes of clothes.

im glad your not my parent. she just told a lie. its not her fault her dad beleived it. you guys are acting like she killed someone

Reply

She's just a little girl you moron's! Its the adult's fault for taking her words seriously in this case though kid's say random things all the time.

There is a reason that there this phrase is common... "From the mouths of babes". Children, regardless of age, can and will say things people don't want to hear. Sometimes the child doesn't have all the facts, but usually they are quite brilliant with the information that they deliver to us. OP may very well have a boyfriend, but then again she may have a friend that happens to be male.
