There are just some things your parents did during your childhood – or maybe still do – that you just don’t get. They may even make you eye-roll. But when you become a parent – or if you’re already one – well, now you may get it. “Buzzfeed” asked their community, "What were your parents right about when they said, 'You'll understand when you have kids of your own?'" and here’s what they had to say.

  • "'We have food at home.' My mom was right. I understand now, lol."
  • "When I couldn't sleep, my mom used to say, 'You don't have to sleep, just lay there and rest!' I hated it as a kid, but now I see the wisdom and say it to my own child all the time. Laying in bed in the dark 'resting' is the best way to fall asleep (and restorative on its own anyway)."
  • "Needing to go in the other room for a minute to collect yourself during your child's tantrum. As a kid, I thought it meant she didn't love me or care, but now I understand that it's BECAUSE she loved me and cared that she needed to take a breath before dealing with the hysterics."
  • "Why I'm always worried about everything all the time. When my dad worried about EVERYTHING regarding me and my siblings, I told him to please relax. He said you'll understand when you have your own kids and now I'm like, ohhhhkkkk."
  • "How much you give up to raise your child. When I found out I was pregnant at 20, I never realized just how much I had to give up to be a good mother. Now I'm 23 with an almost 2-year-old. I still have few friends and no social life at all. I cannot work, as I wouldn't even be able to afford daycare in this day's climate. I have given up my time to be a stay-at-home mom. Yet, my love for my baby is worth everything I gave up. "
