No parent is perfect — but some parenting mistakes can stick with people well into adulthood.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to recall the things their parents did which they'd never repeat with their own child. Whether the parents in question meant well or not, their kids are hoping not to make the same mistakes.
My ex step dad had no issues punishing me and my brother in questionable ways. I have a scar on my back from when he took a branch that was on fire from our fire pit and would wack the hell outta me with it. One time he also pinned me down and would let my sister repeatidly punch me in the nose because I apparently had upset her. I remember one time our deep freeze got left open and all the meat dethawed and he would whip me and my brother until one of us confessed. Turns out it was him after all during a drunk night and he wanted something to eat. - Jaymz22
