As innocent as they are — for the most part at least — children often have a habit of being absolutely ruthless with their words. Perhaps it is their very innocence which enables them to dish out savage responses or observations without worrying about how they might be perceived by another person. Since kids don't find the need to sugarcoat their words, parents often take it upon themselves to try and teach their little ones that it's not very nice to blurt out their opinions even if they are technically true. However, thanks to the incredibly creative minds of young humans, this doesn't always work out the way parents hope.

Earlier this year, Twitter user @AlixEHarrow shared how her 4-year-old came up with clever new phrases to say the food is "gross" after the child was informed that using the g-word at the dinner table was rude. "Having been told that it's rude to call dinner 'gross,' our 4-year-old is finding increasingly creative ways to express himself. 'This tastes....... unlucky to me,' 'this sends my mouth into outer space. (that's bad)...' 'cauliflower is'--[pinches fingers together]--'this much delicious,'" they tweeted. "'Let him listen to audiobooks all day,' we said, 'what's the harm,' but now we have a 4-year-old who says his sweet potatoes are 'suspicious' and 'too violent in his mouth.'"



 

The tweet prompted other parents to share the many innovative ways in which their kids have used the English language to say what's on their minds. Here are 25 of our favorites:
