While new parents are struggling to figure out everything on their own, the opinions and observations from their child-free friends and family are not always welcomed. "You just had a baby but you can't just sneak out of the house to meet us for drinks for a few hours? The baby is asleep!" "Why can't you find a babysitter with a two hour notice?" "Can a 1 week old talk yet?" "Does your toddler know how to ride a bike?"
If you've never spent a significant time around young children and don't have kids yourself, nobody expects you to know everything about babies, but the lack of basic knowledge about humanity can be startling. No, newborn babies can't eat solid food yet, hold themselves up, or walk. Yes, new parents are incredibly exhausted and probably won't make it to your midnight birthday party at the bowling alley. So, when a Reddit user asked parents what the funniest thing a child-free person every said to them about kids, people were eager to reveal the hilarious face-palms of child-rearing.
