Frustrated Dad Takes Parenting Viral

Are you a parent of a teenager looking for guidance on how to get through to your cotton-eared teen? Are you a teenager needing some guidance on day-to-day survival as your approach adulthood? Are you a teenage-like adult who failed to acquire some basic skills along the way? Look no further than Will Reid - a dad from the UK who got sick of trying to get through to his two teenage children, to no avail. He decided to instead giving them some everyday life advice through social media videos - a medium they might actually pay attention to. Reid writes, "My kids said this wouldn't go World Wide as no one would be interested! I guess there are other parents out there that feel the same as I do." Boy, were they wrong! This first Teenage Instructional Video about how to change a toilet roll has gotten 4,179,549 views on YouTube so far! Way to go, dad. Parenting win! One of the highlights is the "advanced level" - an 'extra' length to which the advanced teenager can go (in this case, actually throwing away the old roll). I don't think it's just teenagers can benefit from this lesson! Hah! Like that? Don't miss...

Choose a tree and find out your personality!
Pick a tree! Tree 1. A generous and moral. You aspire to be the best. You have the highest ambitions and standards. People may seem to you that it is difficult, but the hardest thing to you with yourself. You work hard, but you’re not selfish. You work because you want to make the world a better place. You like as long as you do not hurt. And after … still do not cease to love. Very few people can appreciate all that you do. Tree 2. You are a fun, honest person. You are very responsible and like taking care of others. You believe in putting in an honest day’s work and accept many work-related responsibilities. You have a very good personality and people come to trust you easily. You are bright, witty and fast-thinking. You always have an interesting story to tell. Tree 3. A smart and thoughtful. You are a great thinker. Your thoughts and ideas – the most important. Do you like to think about his theories and views alone. Are you an introvert. You get along with those who likes to think and learn. You are never superficial. You spend a lot of time, thinking about morality. You are trying to do what is right, even if the majority of society does not agree with you. Tree 4. Insightful and philosophical. You are very unique, one of a kind soul. There’s no one even slightly similar to you. You are intuitive and a bit quirky. You are often misunderstood and it hurts you. You need personal space. Your creativity needs to be developed. You are a person who clearly sees the light and dark sides of life. You are very emotional. Tree 5. You are self-assured and in charge. You are very independent. Your guiding principle in life is ‘I’ll do it my way.’. You are very self-reliant and know how to stay strong for yourself and the people you love. You know exactly what you want and are not afraid of pursuing your dreams. The only thing you demand from people is honesty. You are strong enough to accept the truth. Tree 6. Kind and sensitive. You can easily build a relationship with people. You have a lot of friends, and you like to make their lives better. You have a warm and bright aura. People feel extremely relaxed in your presence. Every day you are thinking how to become even better. You are interesting, insightful and unique. You need love more than anyone in the world. You are ready to love those who didn’t love you in return. Tree 7. Happy and calm. You are sensitive and a understanding person. You listen carefully and without judgment. You think everyone has their own path in life. You can easily take the events and people. You rarely worried and often times feel very relaxed. Always have a good time while not losing my own way. Tree 8. You are charming and energetic. You are a fun person who knows how to make people laugh. You live in a state of harmony with the universe. You are spontaneous and enthusiastic. You never say no to an adventure. Often, you end up surprising and even shocking people. But that’s just how you are. . . You always remain true to yourself. You have many interests and if something proves of interest to you, you will not rest until you acquire a profound knowledge of this area. I think ,many people want to be like you. Tree 9. Full of optimism and lucky. Do you believe that life – it is a gift, and you’re trying to do as much as possible and use as many as possible of what you have been given. You are immensely proud of what have made in life. With those you love, are willing to share all the joys and sorrows. You have a very healthy outlook on life. You can see that the glass (at least) half full. You are using every opportunity to forgive, learn and grow. Life is too short to do anything else.  What is your tree and personality? I chose 7!!!!
What Are The Ridiculous Reasons Why These Kids Are Crying?
If you've ever babysat, parented, or pretty much existed within the general vicinity of a child for more than two minutes, you probably know that babies cry for the most nonsensical reasons. So do parents using Snapchat, who take that 24/7 baby-documenting that social media moms and dads are notorious for to a whole new level. They take a picture of their kid crying, they caption it with exactly WHY they're crying, share the picture, and boom. Instant hilarity. This is why people get convinced that babies and drunk adults are the same. Hey, you've got to let them teethe somehow, right? To be fair, waiting for freshly baked things to cool down is pretty much the worst. If it's a single-digit AM number, I'd be like this too. Imagine all the possibilities if you COULD though. He's not REALLY bad. Just a little misunderstood, right? Cue that 'Game Of Thrones' chant: "Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!" It's okay. She's going to be grateful she didn't when she's older. I'd probably collapse on the floor too. The freakin' PRESIDENT! Hey, it doesn't mean he can't be upset! I feel like a LOT of little girls think they can marry their dads. I know some grown men that would cry because of this too. I appreciate how easy it is to entertain kids. "Here's a tampon." I like that he's all ready with his little fork too. Okay, but this picture actually made me want a pet lobster. Go away, brother! You're ruining the ambiance! This girl just needs to grab control of her life. AND her fork for that matter. So have you been around a little one who cried for stupid reasons? Or maybe YOU were that little one? I know my dad always reminded me of the first time he shaved off his mustache. I cried for hours because he didn't look like my dad anymore! @VIPFreak2NE1 @YumiMiyazaki @TurtleyTurtles @AlexTalley @atmi @CelinaGonzalez @iixel @humairaa @LysetteMartinez @drummergirl691 @ZoilaObregon @AnimeFan4Evr @SarahRegulski @poeticandfunny @tokyo514 @Outcastname @RachelParker @FrankilliMambo @EasternShell @supbroscene @Baoyi @VeronicaArtino @YunBao @buddyesd @HandsomeBacon
