Probably no adult is capable of matching the imaginative capacity of the little ones. Their desire to know and create new things ends up transporting them to a world they only know. But, just like us, they also have their bad days, and that same imagination makes them find the most unusual reasons to throw a proper tantrum.

At Bright Side, we know that being a parent is a challenge, so it’s best to take these senseless tantrums with a pinch of salt.

  • I was with my 3-year-old getting him ready for bed, and he said, “Mommy, I want water.” I went to the kitchen; suddenly, I heard him screaming at the top of his lungs, “Mommy!” and he started crying uncontrollably. I ran to see what was wrong and between tears, he said: “Mom, I have a hole, I have a hole,” and I was terrified, checking him to see where or what had happened, and it turned out that the hole was his belly button. © Silvia Sánchez / Facebook
  • My baby was crying inconsolably for her finger today, and we tried to relieve her pain, but she didn’t know which finger it was. © Angie Litxi Villamizar de Aguirre / Facebook
  • My youngest son cried because he was put in the kindergarten classroom after recess and said he would burn the chicken he was cooking. The chicken was plastic. © Vivian Chaves Chinchilla / Facebook
  • Mine cried because she couldn’t pull the “little skin” off her ear, that is, her earlobe because it was in her way. She also cried because I told her she was a girl but wanted to be a dog. She is 3 years old. © Sandra Melissa Bustamante / Facebook

  • My daughter cried because I didn’t tuck her in well. I tried wrapping her like a tamale like 5 times so that not a single limb was left uncovered, but for some strange reason, her foot would come out of the cover, which was unacceptable. © Saucedo Jessica / Facebook
  • Children cry for strange things. My child one day called me crying because he couldn’t see; I just told him, “Open your eyes.” © Mario Zamarron / Facebook
  • My son cried because his hair was dragging on his pillow. © Catalina Delgado / Facebook
  • My oldest daughter cried because I hadn’t saved her cake from our wedding. She was born ten months after we were married and cried when she saw the pictures. © Ruben MaElena Martinez / Facebook
