No likes to admit their wrong, but somehow that feeling is magnified more when you're a child and the person you're contesting with is your parent. We all wanted to know more than our parents, perhaps because we wanted to quickly outgrow them, proving we didn't need anyone to take care of us. Or maybe, we would have rather died than giving them the satisfaction of knowing they were right. However, in those rare moments, there are times when we have to admit when they were right, as evidenced by Reddit user r/GteatClips' question:
What was your biggest "s---, my parents were right" moment?
"Wear your retainer." Lost that damn thing a week after I got my braces off and was worried about getting in trouble with my parents, so I never said anything.
Cut to 20 years later and I'm looking into Invisalign because my teeth have become noticeably crooked. That s* is like $4k.
This isn't that exciting but when I was 17 I didn't know what I wanted to do after high school. I was a little s* back then. My mom tried to convince me to take the paralegal program at a community college and I was like hell no.
Welp, 8 years later I ended up in the paralegal degree program and loved it. Idk how she knew I'd like it so much. Especially back then.
