50 Parents Reveal The Moment The Realized They Raised A Monster

50 Parents Reveal The Moment They Realized They Raised A Monster 

These parents on Ask Reddit accidentally raised monsters.

19. When my sons were 12 and 13 the older one stole $600 from my wife and I. He gave the younger one half. When they were caught and everything was said and done the younger son told us that we didn’t have the right to take “his” money from him because he didn’t steal it. That was when I knew. Now ages 19 and 20, the older son has long grown out of it. The younger one has never stopped stealing and lying. Before moving out he told me that he has always resented me for locking things up and, I’m quoting him here, “not letting me take whatever I want from you”. It amazes me because we raised all four of our kids the same way and the other two have always been good kids and kind hearted. Oh well

20. Not the parents, I’m actually the monster, when I was 5 I stabbed my mom in the thigh with a screw-driver, I’m surprised she didn’t give me up.

21. Last year, when my 12 year old son set his mother’s house on fire because she told him to feed the animals.
