It doesn't take much to annoy your little one, whether it's a pimple on your face or the location of their birth, everything seems to irk them.
Even as a parent, you can never predict the little things your little ones get upset over at unexpected hours. Whether they are mad at their parents for not buying them their favorite toy or they are upset over the amount of veggies they have to finish at their lunch tables, kids do display their annoyance over many things. However, a mom named Kristen Cook—who goes by @kristen.cook.kac on Instagram—has found herself in a pickle because her 4-year-old daughter apparently has a whole lot of complaints about her and those are some funny and petty reasons to get upset over.
In her video, Cook shared the funniest list she has compiled about everything her 4-year-old daughter gets mad over in a week. She starts the list by declaring how a pimple that has appeared on her face has made her daughter mad as if Cook has any control over the emergence of the unpleasant pimple. "She asked me where I gave birth to her and I said 'in a hospital' and she was mad because she wanted me to give birth at a Target because in that way she would have a cake pop ready for her," Cook narrated.

Cook revealed that her daughter was also mad because she wouldn't let her crawl in the oven with the french fries while they were cooking. The next thing her daughter was upset over her mother revealing that it was not her birthday on the day her daughter wished her. The little girl also got angry over her ham tasting a lot of "hammy." Cook even had to lie to her daughter and say that she got braces so she wouldn't upset her daughter over not knowing the words to a song she made up. Mothers who saw Cook's video could relate to her situation on a personal level.
@ratmd jokingly accused the mom and wrote, "How dare you not squat and deliver a baby in the aisle of Target. So negligent of you." @i.am.b.rich commented, "My daughter was upset because her burger tasted too much like beef. She's 31. I just wanted you moms to know it never ends." @mrsboogie1904 quipped, "I wear acrylic nails and recently took them off to give my nails a break. My 4-year-old daughter looks at my hands and makes the most grotesque face I have ever seen and proceeds to tell me 'I don’t like your fingers, please go to the nail store.'"

@daneeriggs added, "I once had the audacity, I mean, the unlimited gall to buy a clock with Roman numerals and hang it in our living room. Upon descending the stairs the next morning, my then 5 y/o girl child eyeballed me accusingly and said in a massively disappointed tone, ‘Mommy, why would you buy a Spanish clock? You know I don’t speak Spanish!!’" Well, these moms might be having a hard time trying to deal with their kids getting mad over hilariously absurd reasons but one mom thinks that letting kids throw tantrums is also necessary.
In a similar story about parenting woes, Adelynn Minnees—who goes by @minneesday on TikTok—who is a mom to a toddler, explained why she does not stop her child from having tantrums and why every parent should practice the same. She uploaded a video of her daughter Bella sobbing uncontrollably. She clarified that Bella was having her second breakdown and that it was due to a simple issue where her dad had opened a pack of chips rather than her mother.
Through the overlay texts on her video, Minnees explained that these tantrums are typical and shouldn't be considered bad behavior. These are the "big feelings" that a youngster begins to experience as they learn about various emotions. The toddler's mom further explains that if parents are suppressing these "big feelings" of their child then it leads the child to start second-guessing their own emotions and it's not good at all.
