Best parents ever.

19 hours ago by chesleigh
My son loves Doctor Who. He decided
that the Doctor is the one who brings Christmas
presents, not Santa. So of course, last Christmas, we
decided to get him a sonic screwdriver "from" the
Doctor, along with a letter saying that this was his very
own sonic screwdriver, but he got a new one so he' s
giving this one to my son, He loved it.
A few weeks later, we went on vacation and the
screwdriver got misplaced somewhere. We knew he' d be
heartbroken, so we told him that the Doctor had
borrowed his screwdriver back for a few days (while t
ordered a new one from Amazon),
After it arrived, we waited until my son was in bed,
placed the screwdriver with a note ("Thanks for letting
me borrow id") outside his bedroom door, then played
the TARDIS sound on my computer speakers. He came
running out and found the screwdriver that "the Doctor"
had "brought back."
He talks about it all the time.

Let's analyze this A+ parenting.
>You tell your kid the Doctor is real, and gave him what he believes is the original sonic screwdriver, so he will feel happy, important, and loved at that moment in time.
>The kid tells everyone that he knows Doctor Who, and that he gave him his actual sonic screwdriver.
>The kid eventually realizes Doctor Who is not real, his parents, who he once trusted unconditionally, lied to him, and his friends who he faithfully ignored when they called him and his parents a liar, were right.

This kid now has trust issues with his parents, may listen to his peers more, and might think twice before feeling that important or loved ever again. Be an A+ parent, lie to your kids. (contrived nice people)

Because every kid has trust issues with their parents when they tell them that Santa/Tooth fairy/Easter bunny/ isn't real.

There was a time in everyone's life when they believed their parents would never lie to them, and a time when they learned otherwise.
#215 to #143 - headhunternl (07/24/2013) [-]
So every parent who tells their children santa or the toothfairy is real is a bad parent?

How many people are going to ask me that? I was referring to Santa and the Tooth Fairy, as well, from the beginning.
User avatar #229 to #228 - cabbagemayhem (07/25/2013) [-]
I know I'm on the wrong side of a ********* because Doctor Who and happy children, but some people need to learn a lie is a lie.
User avatar #162 to #143 - thefogwoggler (07/24/2013) [-]
parents do that all the time with santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy and more. he'll grow up realize the truth and probably thank his parents for making his childhood more amazing. when you found out santa wasn't real did you have trust issues? think twice before feeling loved? i know i didn't.
User avatar #167 to #162 - cabbagemayhem (07/24/2013) [-]
"parents do it all the time with Santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy and more"
That's exactly what I'm talking about, and you may not remember clearly, but on top of what I mentioned it also confuses the child about what's real.
User avatar #172 to #167 - thefogwoggler (07/24/2013) [-]
not really when i was a kid my brother told me that clifford the big red dog was based of a real dog, did that mean i started thinking telitubbies or mister men were real? no i just went about my business when i grew up i realized that it wasn't true and found it funny how i believed him also i like how you just took 1 line out of context and didn't mention what i said after it
User avatar #183 to #172 - cabbagemayhem (07/24/2013) [-]
You don't remember, but there was a time when you believed your parents would never lie to you, and then a time when you realized they would.
User avatar #188 to #183 - thefogwoggler (07/24/2013) [-]
so? it's not like i've got trust issues because my parents told me a few white lies to keep me happy or well behaved i'm a happy healthy individual with a large group of friends and family your saying that if you had a kid you would tell him there is no santa and never see his giddiness on christmas eve as he waits for santa to bring him gifts. also what if he goes into school and tells his friends there is no santa and you effectively crush the happiness of dozens of kids?
User avatar #230 to #143 - pedobearandson (07/25/2013) [-]
your parents were obviously not A+
User avatar #231 to #230 - cabbagemayhem (07/25/2013) [-]
Coming from a pedobear father -- ouch.
In fact, I often don't know if I can believe what my mother is telling me, and it is the cause of much woe. I have significant experience with a parent who readily lies to avoid hurting someone's feelings, or otherwise manipulating the outcome of events. Nobody can explain how these are any different.
#153 to #143 - anon (07/24/2013) [-]
ok fine, B+, happy?
#165 to #155 - jmillenium (07/24/2013) [-]
Parents lie all the time and some lies are almost encouraged. I mean really the stork, santa claus, you probably believed in them at one point and did those lies give you trust issues.
User avatar #170 to #165 - cabbagemayhem (07/24/2013) [-]
I am specifically talking about all of these things. Yes they are encouraged, because people are stupid and would rather see a momentary smile on their child's face than to properly prepare them for life.
#214 to #170 - zendir (07/24/2013) [-]
Yea lets just ruin what little time a child has of innocence and wonder.
User avatar #222 to #214 - cabbagemayhem (07/24/2013) [-]
That's what I'm saying you're doing by telling them lies. If you can't explain to me why telling the truth is a bad idea, then get off my planet.
User avatar #227 to #226 - cabbagemayhem (07/25/2013) [-]
I knew the red thumbs were coming when I posted, but you all need to think about this **** , even if you hate me for it.

Kids have a hard enough time finding out that Santa isn't real.
I do not envy the man who has to tell him Doctor Who isn't real.
User avatar #28 to #27 - ilovehitler (07/24/2013) [-]
Maybe the kid will go his life thinking the Doctor is real.

Until he sees this post.

Then we have to kill him before he does.

Who tells their kids Santa isn't real? Just let them figure it out for themselves on their own time.

Yeah but did your parents dress up at Mario and Luigi and throw you a kick ass 24th birthday party?
#62 - kanali (07/24/2013) [-]
That's absolutely darling. Too bad the kid will start telling his friends at school and one of those assholes will get sick of it and tell him that Doctor Who isn't real. Just like they told me Santa Claus wasn't real.
#117 to #62 - leprapimp (07/24/2013) [-]
i know that feeling i was like 10-12 and just hanging out with my friends and we got on the topic of santa claus and one said he wasnt real and that our parents should stop writing his name on things. thats the point when i saw all holiday related people or creatures as fake and the day my childhood slowly decayed into a pile of lies

What if it is real though, and we're just in the world Rose, Mickey, and the Doctor's clone thing got stuck in?

I really, really want a sonic screwdriver. It just looks so damn useful. I don't even care that I have to break several laws of physics to make it happen, I'm building a sonic screwdriver.
