    And just incase you're at work and stuck behind a firewall:


    "Today, my five-year-old came home from summer camp crying because her friends and counselors had all laughed at her when she couldn't identify colors correctly during a game.
    My husband then confessed that he had taught her colors wrong because he thought it would be funny. FML
    "

    :D


    Cruel, but it made me giggle... (even 5 minutes later)

    Jeeezus. Talk about being a model parent.
    How can anyone think that is funny?

    Sadly some parents do stuff like this all the time. I see it most often with the pronunciation of words. In trying to learn how to say something little ones will often say it wrong and yes, sometimes what they say is "cute". Well, instead of correcting and teaching, the parents leave them with the mispronunciation because they think it's "funny, amusing, or adorable". In my opinion it's sad and can lead to problems if the child gets made fun of by peers.

    It's mildly amusing but sucks for the kid who will ultimately be confused for quite some time.

    That's hilarious! The counselor should have been nicer to that kid.
