Kids can sometimes say the strangest things which may seem brutally honest to us adults but are in fact both funny and true at the same time. Most adults have long forgotten what it’s like to be a kid. But kids are here to remind us that their outlook on life is radically different than that of us grown-ups.
In this list, you’ll find 50 honest and funny notes that kids have written for their parents. Some of these notes are hilarious, some are witty, but they all provide a unique insight into the mind of children. Most importantly, these notes remind us that we all were once kids and that we should rediscover our inner child.
Let’s take a look at some of the best notes from kids which will make you laugh and relive your own childhood memories.
1. Moms are irreplaceable
Everyone knows how important moms are and we love them so much we couldn’t even think of having a different mom. This kid explained it pretty well what would happen if he had a different mom. His mom should be really proud.
2. This kid is too awesome to be afraid of anything, including death
Most parents feel awkward and don’t quite know what to answer when faced with their kid’ questions about death and dying. Graham, on the other hand, seems to have all the answers already. He’s determined to deal with death in his own way and death better not try to stop him – or else.
3. You’re my second… well third, favorite teacher
Kids take the saying: ‘honesty is the best policy’ very seriously. Too seriously, in fact. The kid who wrote this message will learn one day that honesty is not always the best way to deal with certain people. It’s an old question even we adults have no answer to, do we prefer truth or happiness?
4. David and Albert sure know how to have fun
All kids like to dream of what they would become when they grow up. But the point is to always have fun while dreaming about your future career, something which David and Albert understand quite well.
5. It’s never too late to say sorry
It takes character to be able to apologize when you do something wrong. More often than not, a simple sorry is enough to make amends and can be a start of a new friendship. Don’t you just love how quickly kids go from enemies to friends?
6. “I am a lawyer, my son told me he had to tell me something, but first wanted me to sign this.”
They don’t say: ‘it runs in the family’ for nothing. We’re certain of one thing: nobody is ever going to think of double-crossing this kid!
7. An apology letter with a twist
This parent has asked their daughter to write an apology letter but it didn’t turn out as planned. Kids really know how to upset their parents in just a few words.
8. Witch, hunter, garbage man are all good careers
When we begin entering adulthood it becomes tough to choose the right career path that fits our skills and talents. However, kids don’t have that problem. They know exactly what they want. Who hasn’t dreamed of being a garbage man or a witch at least once during childhood?
9. When reality hits you
While it’s sad to read this, it can be sobering at the same time. Kids have a real knack for expressing the complex truth behind adult relationships succinctly.
10. Eat your ice cream before it’s too late
Life can be so simple if you know how to find pleasure in simple things. Those little things that make us happy, like eating ice cream. So make sure you eat your desert and enjoy life to the fullest!
11. I wanted a puppy but a baby brother would do too
It’s kind of hard not to mistake God for a Santa when you’re a kid. Both can make your wishes come true so it can be real hard to spot the difference. But more often than not you get more than you bargained for, like in Joyce’s case.
12. Not a cheese lover
This confusing letter was written by a teacher on the behalf of a 3-year-old daughter who was fed up with cheese in her lunch and wanted to make them quite clear to her mom. Let’s hope she obliged and rid her girl’s lunch box of smelly cheese.
13. Hunger games
We can’t be sure of what’s going on here but it’s pretty cute nevertheless. The world is not going to end if your kid skips dinner one evening, right?
14. Say stop to war, killing, and Justin Bieber
Haven’t we all wished for a world without wars, hunger, and inequality? Or a world in which Justin Biber would just go away? One can always dream.
15. Love is complicated
Nothing compares to having your kid tell you how much they love you. But it can be a bit underhwelming when the word ‘sometimes’ stands right next to ‘I love you’. Who are we to judge, anyway. Love can be quite confusing.
16. I saved the best for last
A letter like this can always lift up your spirits! You better watch out though, for the envelope contains a little surprise.
17. Sorry for not being sorry
You want to say sorry but don’t know how or even if you really feel sorry at all! We’ve all been there so we know how Liam feels. It’s probably better not to make kids say they’re sorry and just let them decide when’s the best moment to do so.
18. A wise man once sad: don’t talk on the phone with too many friends
This note deserves to be quoted by future generations, as it demonstrates than you don’t need to be old and gray to be wise. Perhaps more importatly, it shows that it doesn’t matter how many friends you have, so long as you value them. Or just that you can’t have the time for all of them.
19. Save it for a rainy day
Sooner or later all kids enter into rebellios phase when they just want to oppose their folks, no matter what. And why do we need moms to tell us to have a great day when we don’t want it?
20. You’re the only I care about when there’s no chicken
The secret to success is to get your priorities straight. Like the kid who wrote this note.
Unconditional love between a parent and a child goes out of the window when you make your kid clean their room. They may do it but they’ll hate you for it.
22. Homeworks don’t have to be boring
Homework should stimulate children’s creativity in order to develop their skills better and enable them to discover their talents. Right? It worked perfectly for this kid, as a vent at least.
23. Always eat your vegetables
Getting kids to eat vegetables can sometimes be a real art. Still, it seems this 5-year-old’s parents don’t have that problem, when he doesn’t eat off the floor, that is.
24. Moms are not interesting if they’re regular
This kid is definitively onto something here. Being regular isn’t very interesting, is it? That’s why it’s regular. He should learn, however, that there can hardly be a job more interesting than being a mom.
25. Life priorities
Someone’s has been watching a little too much Game of Thrones. This kid’s priorities do make sense, however. But only in the Game of Thrones universe.
26. Parents are so mean
Nobody likes being accused of something they didn’t do. Kids are no exception. Madyson didn’t take kindly to being accused of farting during a Christmas celebrtation and gave her family this note after they told her to say ‘excuse me’.
27. A marriage that wasn’t meant to be
Seriously, why are boys so mean? How rude is it not to talk to your date 3 months after you asked her out? We know that marriage between the two is now out of the question but there’s still hope for Shawn if he gets it together like recommended.
28. My dad is the best… [censored]
What dad wouldn’t be embarassed to see a drawing like this one in his kid’s notebook? Well, the image speaks for itself so we’ll stop commenting on it.
29. A grateful son’s note to his mom
Just because something is too obvious doesn’t mean we should be afraid to say it out loud and kids know that better than us adults. Brendan’s mom will be pleased to read this.
30. Like father like son
Here’s why we should never emulate our parents, no matter how much we love them. Otherwise, we may end up like this kid.
31. Get our of my hair dad
Dads don’t be so mean and try to listen to your daughters wishes when doing their hair or you risk breaking their heart. After all, it matters what they want, not you, and girls are very sensitive about their hair.
32. Another creative homework assignment
Homeworks don’t have to be boring, do they? With a little bit of creativity, they can actually be fun. This little girl added a little color to a routine homework assignment but she probably watched too much TV.
33. Calories management
We’d all do well to drop a few pounds and sometimes we need a reminder that it’s time to start eat healthy. Like Eric and his mom.
34. Problem solving at its finest
Kids don’t like to complicate things too much like we adults do all the time. Doing math is as simple as putting two numbers in your head and BAMM, magic happens.
35. Love is blind
Being loved more than a cow may not be a flattering comparison but it’s still heartwarming to realize how much your kids love you. After all, love is blind.
36. Logical thinking for beginners
The kid who wrote this has no troubles with logic. Quite the contrary, he is as straightforward and logical as one can get. We applaud the kid’s attitude, even though he felt angry for being assigned with homework, he still did it.
37. Revenge is a dish best served cold
There comes a moment when it becomes impossible to tolerate the neighbour’s dog pooping in your yard. Thanks to this kid, now you know how to deal with it.
38. Sleeping with the wolves
Teaching kids that their actions have consequences should be one of the most important tasks of any parent. It didn’t turn out so well in the case of this girl and her dad.
39. Dogs are so cool that I want to become one when I grow up
Are you a dog person or a cat person? This kindergartner has made up his mind long ago.
40. To share or not to share, that is the question
Everything is so much better when we share with others. That’s just one of important life’s lesson this kid is yet to learn.
41. A spare boyfriend
Ouch. Kyle must have felt pretty crushed when he read this one. He had his first glimpse of how complicated relationships (and girls) can be. Let’s hope it won’t discourage him from trying to find true love somewhere out there.
