u/TheSirMontyPython Aug 17 '22

Get them rubber stoppers for said cabinets so that it softens the doors from slamming. They're pretty cheap and they last a good long while.

As for the stomping...I'm sorry you're in your own lol

u/PineappleProstate Aug 17 '22

I put them on the bedroom door so now shes figured out how to pull a door before twisting the handle to make a ton of noise with the handle 😆😞

u/HooTiiHoo Aug 18 '22

Get you some soft close hinges and put it on those cupboards, then buy your wife some fuzzy animal slippers to wear (and muffle those stomps). As for the doors, you can actually make them looser (either the springy nub thing on the side of the door, the frame, or the actual door) so it would just make a big “WHOOSH” sound instead of that loud nonsense.

PS - are you my dad??? Because my mom loves to stomp, slam and open doors loudly on purpose. I mean, not just because she gets mad for any randomly given reason, but to make sure she irritates, startles, and intimidates the target of the day.

u/Cosmic_Quasar Aug 18 '22

Back in the 90s, when I was like 4, with an already old cassette camera my parents got a video of me running out of the bathroom naked with a ball of toilet paper tucked between my butt cheeks and hopping around saying I was a bunny.

I woke up one morning after my sister's kids had spent the night at our place to the sound of all of them laughing and being super excited. I came out of my room to see what the noise was about and they all dragged me over to my dad's computer where he had been converting those tapes to a digital format and had decided to show them some videos they had taken of me with that camera.

It was embarrassing lol. But at least I'm an adult, now, more capable of handling my embarrassment than I was between the ages of 8-25. And I have a good relationship/dynamic with my nieces and nephew. So it ended up being a fun moment with the kids. But I'm more okay with being embarrassed by my life history with those kids, because I was still embarrassed that my parents even had that video.

u/Staaaaation Aug 18 '22

27 years ago my 6th grade history teacher had us "create an island and its culture" as an assignment. Being a weirdy kid, I not only drew a large-scale depiction of my island to present, I decided it needed a unique language. Figuring the quickest and most attention grabbing representation would be a song, I made up sounds that represented the words to the R&B band 4PM's "Sukiyaki", which was popular that year. I memorized the entire song in my "language", played an instrumental version on a boombox and sang it in front of my class on presentation day. Of course dad let me borrow the camcorder so he and mom could see how it went. In 20/20 hindsight, the class and teacher were crickets when I was done. I got a "thank you ..." and went back to my seat. It became a running gag to bust out the tape every few years at family get-togethers. Visiting my parents about a decade ago, I discovered the tape and popped it into a VCR only to find it had been through so many temp changes and plays that it was a garbled indecipherable mess. I can't describe the wave of relief I felt that day knowing it was lost forever. I honestly just felt it again.

P.S. I still know the "words" to the song.

u/RegrettableBiscuit Aug 18 '22

class and teacher were crickets when I was done

That's their problem, what you did was fucking amazing.

u/JFKBraincells Aug 18 '22

I learned not to take the class reactions too seriously with shit like that because half the kids are zoning out or anxious about the presentation THEY are gonna have to give soon. I know when I'm hearing presentations, the first 2 or 3 I might be engaged in. But then I'm just done and waiting for my turn to be over. Not a good context for getting good social feedback.

Yes, there is a split happening now. 10-15 years ago, nobody put their kids on social media or did so lightly.

This was a cute video, but I agree with you. As a teacher, I feel bad for these children that don’t have any say in their parents filming them, let alone have the emotional and mental capacity to make an informed decision about a video of them being posted online. Privacy is out the window these days. It shouldn’t be normalized, and sadly our culture normalizes this sort of thing.

50

u/noobvin Aug 17 '22

I made the decision early on in my daughter’s life that not videos or pictures would be posted of her. This included grandparents. This was a CONSTANT battle with them. I was like, “I know you want to show her off, but she’s not 18 and one day she may not want this out there. The Internet is forever.”

Now my daughter is 19 and thanks me for that decision. I was right. She’s doesn’t use social media at all and doesn’t like it.

I don’t feel like I’m some hero or special, just a father who wanted to protect the privacy of their daughter. I can’t believe this isn’t just a normal thing. I also think some people aren’t trying to exploit their children, but they are betraying trust, even if they don’t know.

I keep seeing TikToks of parents going through their kids messy rooms complaining about how lazy they are. Can you imagine having people at your school find a video of your parent going through your room trying publicly shame you into doing what they. And of course all the comments will be other parents sympathizing and encouraging them to post more. It's really sad.

u/MoonaBlanca Aug 18 '22

u/Johnny_Poppyseed Aug 17 '22

Yeah it isn't really comparable at all. Also Im thinking people overestimate how common video cameras were back then. Some families no doubt recorded a lot, but for most it was very rare. Special occasions, and most of the time not even then. And the overwhelming majority of footage filmed barely ever saw the light of day and almost certainly by nobody outside family.

The instant gratification you get from tik tok is not comparable to sending a tape into AFV. Its kind of hilarious how many comparisons can be drawn between the two but the reality is parents weren't sending a dozen tapes into AFV per day. They screened the tapes they got and it took months if not years for yours to maybe be aired. And they wouldn't show abuse, nudity, or offer methods for making lots of money if you are successful.

14

u/LittleRadishes Aug 17 '22

Home videos were one tape being played on cable TV with no/very shitty recording devices or playback or rewind and even if you recorded it it was on one videotape which was fragile and could easily be damaged or destroyed

vs

A profile page with everything there accessible whenever you want with no viewing limit on the internet where it's likely archived somewhere even if you delete it and theoretically everyone can get access to it easily.

So glad my mother wasn't a piece of shit lmao.

One day after looking through the family photo book she went away and handed me a small one

That small one had every photo you could consider embarrassing in it. My mother kept it separate from the main book so no one ever saw them.

I can't even imagine if she would of posted them online for the world to see and never be disappear.

u/HappyHammburger Aug 17 '22

my mom kept all the embarrassing photos saved to her hard drive and on family reunions she would plug her laptop in to the tv and show all the embarrassing photos to everyone

It’s not cute. You have embarrassed him, not only in front of a girl he has a crush on, but then you put it on social media.

Every parent posting embarrassing recordings of their children online are just doing it for themselves in all reality. They want their channel to grow and they don’t care if they have to monetize their children for it .

u/NiceCrispyMusic Aug 17 '22

Most of them aren’t even thinking about channel growth or monetization. They just crave attention.

Ok, I get the concern of youse who are dragging the mom for posting this online. You're coming from a point of care.

However, nobody who is watching this, who has a lick of human dignity or compassion, will ever hold this against that boy. He was absolutely adorable, and his crush was in on it, and I'm pretty sure she thought so too.

Exactly. The kid was embarrassed, and yeah, as adults we know he had nothing to be embarrassed about. But when you're that young, those feelings are very real to you as you're developing and going through all these experiences for the first time. They are big feelings, and it sucks when adults forget what being a kid used to feel like. My family did this kind of stuff to me, and all it taught me was to be emotionally closed off and overly private.

14

u/EatTheAndrewPencil Aug 17 '22

Not just that, but kids that age these days are absolutely on various social medias enough that there's a real chance the girl or the kid's other classmates see this because it's gone viral and now he gets teased by his peers about his crush.

I personally just hate how normal it is now to post every fucking thing on the internet. We as adults know that this was “cute” and not a big deal, but that little guy was probably pretty embarrassed, and he also probably had the realization soon after that his own fucking mom was going to post this moment (that, again, may very well be embarrassing for him) on the internet for the whole fucking world to see. This shit is “normal” but it really shouldn’t be. Call me oversensitive but I would NOT have liked this when I was a little kid.

18

u/sienfiekdsa Aug 17 '22

You’re not over sensitive. If anything too many people are under sensitive

These children never consented to their image being posted all across the internet or going viral. And no one wants embarrassing videos of them floating around forever when they’re 15. What’s embarrassing for a kid is very different than an adult. Children deserve privacy and I hate this era so much

No one is holding it against the boy but to deliberately embarrass your child and then post it on the internet is seriously messed up. Bad parent.

Why embarrass your kid so publicly like this?! I really hate TikTok and IG. My kids are precious to me, won’t find me posting pics of them, let alone embarrassing footage that will never leave the internet!

Since when did videoing someone sleeping, and then putting it on the internet not count as invasion of privacy?? Especialy your own child. What is wrong with these sad people.

Downvote away 😂…. Probably the same oxygen thieves who also exploit their kids for attention on social media 🤦‍♂️.

u/monkeyboy8me Aug 17 '22

I dont get the context ? Why is the boy embarrassed? Because he was sleeping?

At that age anything can be embarrassing, especially when your crush sees it.

Yeah man parents are weird. I have a 4 year old daugther and I cannot imagine posting half the things they do. Maybe I would still record to them to show to her later but post def not

u/HarryPottersElbows Aug 17 '22

I'm with you. And I feel like everyone defending the mom is someone who would post their kid's embarrassing moments online.

Yes, he looked cute. WE think that. But what about his feelings? His embarrassment doesn't mean less because he's a child. I'm so sick of children being used as social media props.
