A Girl With Tourette Syndrome Made a Video of What Her Eating Dinner Looks Like

Sophie Adams is 16 and was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome after seeking help for some tics when she was nine. The tics, which are repetitive and involuntary, are often characteristics of the disorder, and may look like rapid eye-blinking, shoulder movements or blurting sounds or offensive words.

Sophie uses social media to spread awareness about Tourette Syndrome, as well as dispel myths and also to show what living with it is like. Recently, she uploaded a video to TikTok of her eating dinner. The video has been viewed nearly 7 million times.

In the video, Sophie is having dinner with her friend, who also has Tourette Syndrome, and some other people. Their different tics show how challenging it is to do something as simple as eating dinner. Sophie eventually reaches across the table and pushes some drink glasses over. Ice and liquid spread across their dinner table.

Another video shows the mess and cleanup after the glasses are overturned.

Sophie hopes her videos show others how varied the tics can be and she says even though some accuse her of faking her tics, it won’t deter her from using TikTok to educate people.

People living with Tourette Syndrome have unique tics. In her videos, Sophie encourages others to not be afraid to show their differences.

That’s a lesson everyone should hear.

She’s a pretty wise teen with a great outlook on life and a positive attitude.

Funny Tweets From Parents That We Think You’ll Enjoy

Parents…we feel your pain right now.

Everyone has been crammed together for so long that we’re all going a little crazy. And the kids…oh, those kids.

Aren’t they just delightful when they’re not allowed to do anything with their friends?

We all know that the statement above is meant to be sarcastic, right?

Parents, read through these funny tweets and at the very least, you’ll realize that you are not alone in your madness right now.

1. That’ll show him!

You gotta mess with them a little bit. Trust me.

2. That is a brilliant strategy.

Now is the time to turn it around.

3. Just let him be.

Being a superhero takes a lot of work.

4. Dammit! Knew that was gonna happen.

Are we missing anything else?

5. I think about 85% of people on the road are doing this.

Are you one of them? Don’t lie!

Vintage Parenting Photos That Would Probably Get Parents in Big Trouble If They Happened Today

I have three older siblings, so by the time my parents were raising me, they were less strict with me than they had been with all of them.

That’s a win for me!

Why?

Because I was allowed to get away with much more than they did and my parents weren’t as hung up on everything like they had been previously.

Parenting changes throughout the years and what one generation did is looked down upon by the next group of folks as dangerous and reckless.

We have a feeling that these old-school parenting photos would get these moms and dads in a whole lot of trouble if they were to happen today.

Let’s take a look…

1. That looks safe.

A girl and her bear.

2. Oh, boy…

Not good at all.

Back in the day. 1950s to be exact. Checkout that car seat. from pics

3. Have some fireworks.

Oh, the kid will be fine!

4. This is amazing!

And it was the NINETIES! We’re not talking about 1975 here…

Me back in 1991 just your typical Aussie kid drinking XXXXlight beer(I wasn’t aloud heavies back then) and holding a baby crocodile! from OldSchoolCool

5. What’s that smell?

Definitely in the 1970s.

California marijuana initiative rally 1972. That’s me in the box and my parents in the picture. from OldSchoolCool

6. Kicking back with a cigar.

And looking very cool.

Me again, 1958, relaxing after my bath with Toby, I was never again this cool from OldSchoolCool

7. That looks very dangerous.

It’s a loooooong way down.

My mother and grandmother demonstrating safety standards in the 1960s. from OldSchoolCool

8. Just a little sip.

Of the hard stuff!

9. The Tiger King.

Your mom is right about this one.

10. Get that kid a helmet!

This won’t end well.

11. Father and son.

12. Have a drink on me, kid.

Bellied up to the bar.

Infant me, my mother & father at a bar because that’s how parents rolled in the early ’80s from OldSchoolCool

13. This is great.

Safety first!

The pinnacle of parenting: 1930s swimming lesson. from WTF

14. This is crazy!

What were they thinking?!?!

Car seat safety in 1958. Not strapped in to anything, these seats relied on the mother to put her arm out and stop the baby from falling forward. from OldSchoolCool

Okay, now we want to hear from you!

In the comments, tell us about the way you were raised.

Or tell us about how you’re raising your own kids these days.

We can’t wait to hear from you.

Thanks in advance!

If You’re a Parent, These Memes Will Make You Feel So Seen

There are a lot of positives about being a parent in the age of the internet, which is good…because there are also more than a few downsides.

One of the very best things is how easily we can connect with other parents now, which not only helps us ask for advice and lean on stronger shoulders when we need them, but just makes us feel less alone.

And these 11 memes and moments are so universal that you’ll know for sure that someone else has already lived through the crazy moment you’re experience right now!

11. Who says dads aren’t involved parents?

I know, I know, it’s all for the picture.

Image Credit: Imgur

10. This is one of the most accurate descriptions of parenthood I have ever seen.

Also, about that mousepad…

Image Credit: Imgur

9. This is wayyyy too real these days.

Sure I could  have a clean house, but…

Image Credit: Imgur

8. It’s the circle of life.

And no, it’s not as beautiful as Disney would have you believe.

Image Credit: Imgur

7. The you in the game definitely doesn’t have kids.

Or a job or anything else to give you anxiety at night.

Image Credit: Imgur

6. What a beautiful story.

I knew it had to have an ending like that.

Image Credit: Imgur

5. It’s a classic playlist.

Toddlers have been perfecting their brand of terrorism for a long time.

Image Credit: Imgur

4. Things would go more smoothly if they would realize early on where they got their psycho from.

And we have more practice wielding it for results.

Image Credit: Imgur

3. Or vice versa, but yeah.

Having it all is one big fat joke.

Image Credit: Imgur

2. Embarrassing your teens is what parenting is all about.

You have to live through those years somehow.

Imag Credit: Imgur

1. This is one instance where the good old days are not exaggerated.

I know the day will come again when they will eat what I cook…*dreams*

Image Credit: Imgur

I am laughing so hard about how weird kids and parents and families are!

In the best possible way, of course.

Tell us which one was your favorite in the comments!

Daughters Recreated Their Moms’ Looks and the Results Are Pretty Great

It’s fun to dig through old photos of our parents to see what they were like before we came along or when we were too young to remember what was going on around us.

These women tried to bring it back to the old days by recreating the look of their moms in old photos and I think it’s safe to say they crushed it.

Are you ready for these pics?

Let’s take a look!

1. Back to those teen days.

Nice work!

2. Both of them with their babies.

Different kinds of babies, but still…

3. Bored, so why the heck not?

A lot of time to go through old photos right now, that’s for sure.

4. Going way back to 1989.

I think it’s safe to say she did a good job.

5. I love this one!

Mom looks very late 1980s or early 1990s.

6. All synced up.

A perfect recreation.

7. All the little details.

Really paid attention for this one.

8. A very cool photo.

And you pulled it off wonderfully!

9. You did a real bang-up job.

A great eye…

10. I love that old phone.

A spitting image of Mom.

11. Hard at work.

You can tell they’re both very studious.

12. Happy Mother’s Day!

Had to dig out the same exact clothes to pull this photo off.

Those ladies all really nailed it, don’t you think?

How about you?

Have you ever tried to recreate your mom’s look?

If so, please share the photos with us in the comment.

Let’s see what ya got!

Creepy Photos of Babies With Adult Teeth…You’ve Been Warned

Random stuff became a “thing” on social media for only a brief moment and they leave you scratching your head.

Sometimes, those things are also terrifying and you wonder if the whole idea was spawned by Satan himself.

This is one of those things.

For some reason, people have been Photoshopping and Faceswapping adult teeth onto babies and little kids and it’s just downright creepy.

Are you ready for some legit nightmare fuel?

Okay, you asked for it…

1. OH MY GOD.

He looks pretty uncomfortable with the whole thing.

2. Flashin’ those pearly whites.

This is hilarious.

3. Well, those sure came in quickly.

He’s cool with it.

4. Just in case you need a reminder…

Somehow scarier when their eyes are closed.

5. Like I said, nightmare fuel.

For days and days…

6. It will haunt you.

Oh, it will haunt you for a long time to come…

7. My eyes!

Kind of hard to look away, isn’t it?

Funny Reasons Why Kids Didn’t Want Their Food

Children. You can’t live with them and you CERTAINLY can’t live without them. It’s the law!

Well, until they’re like 18 or something. And even then they might stick around.

So… can we be honest. Kids are more spoiled today than they’ve ever been, and these Instagram posts prove it. Because there’s NO way my kid (who doesn’t exist) would ever be able to act like this.

But hey, let’s judge these parents! That’s fun!

1. Like, seriously, just untwist them.

It’s not even that hard.

2. OK, we can see how this would be confusing.

Totally makes sense.

3. Eggs must be uniform.

From now on. Get to work chickens!

4. She’s got a point.

I mean, just look at that devious smirk.

https://www.instagram.com/p/3Zy—v0Ed/

5. Million-dollar idea right here.

Spicy grapes!

6. Look, Ma, it just tastes better this way OK?

I’m not surprised you don’t understand.

7. You’re an animal!

Who puts lotion on carrots?!

8. We can see the resemblance.

It’s uncanny now that you mention it.

9. This makes perfect sense.

I wouldn’t want to eat kitty cats, either, Mom.

10. Get this kid some LSAT prep books, baby!

We’ve got some serious logic going on here.

11. Hmm. Who’s gonna tell her?

Not me!

12. This kid might be onto something.

Christmas, upgraded!

13. Circles = far superior to squares.

Everyone knows that, Dad.

Okay, I actually feel a little bit bad about judging those parents. Because how you can deal with these small little people who are so unreasonably dumb?

People say kids are just highly creative? No, they’re not. They’re ignorant and quite stupid.

Get a job, kids! And buy your own food!

What do you think? Should kids have to get jobs when they’re 5 and buy their own food? Let us know in the comments!

People Talk About What They Thought Was Really Expensive or Cheap When They Were Kids

When I was young, there was a family in our small town and they drove a convertible…

And I thought they were THE SHIT.

Who actually OWNS a convertible, I used to think to myself. I believed they lived in a mansion, went to country clubs, and probably had maids and butlers.

Looking back on it years later, I think it was actually kind of a middle-of-the-road car (I can’t remember what kind, exactly). The point is that when you’re a kid, you have little or no concept of money and what things really cost.

But it always makes for hilarious stories later on!

Let’s dig into some stories from folks on AskReddit.

1. The good stuff.

“Always had sparkling grape juice as kids but only for New Years.

Seemed like such a lavish bottle. They’re cheap as hell… but only having it that often made it feel so special.”

2. She loves it!

“It never occurred to me that some food was more expensive than other food. I 100% thought my mom made spaghetti all the time because it was her favorite.

I was much older when I realized it was because it would feed a lot of people very cheap.”

3. Three flavors.

“I always thought Neopolitan ice cream must’ve been the apex of ice cream decadence and expense because you got not 1, not 2, but THREE flavors in one tub!”

4. Well, it turns out…

“Food colouring and fondant icing for baking. Thought it was sooo expensive and that’s why only fancy cakes used them.

Turns out they cost like £1 each.”

5. A painful lesson.

“The dentist.

Didn’t think I’d be in debt from getting teeth fixed.

My husband and I are having to take turns with the dentist this year. He needs more work so I’m going to let him go first once things open up, because we can’t afford for us both to go.

Luckily I just a need a few fillings, he needs a root can*l and a crown.

He had a bunch of work done last year too. I don’t even know why we have dental insurance if it covers so little.”

6. Costs a fortune.

“Disneyland.

Honestly I didn’t really have a guess on how much a ticket was but we got to go every couple of years so I figured it was no big deal.”

7. Getting fancy.

“Going out to anything other than fast food was an expensive night out.

Even Applebees.”

8. You must be loaded.

“Disney movies.

I grew up poor and my dad would always get the forgettable off brand versions of popular cartoon movies. Instead of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, for example, I’d get to see The Secret of the Hunchback. Lots and lots of that.

When I saw a kid who owned a REAL Disney movie on VHS I assumed they were very rich. I didn’t realize you could buy several in one month and not have to declare bankruptcy even without being rich.”

9. It adds up.

“Curtains.

Never thought of them being valuable.

Guess what, if you have someone make them fit your place they cost a fortune.”

10. Don’t throw those away.

“Those self-stick bows you put on gifts.

I used to think they were super expensive because everyone in my family used them over and over. We had a few that we used so much, they were recognizable. We had a few “fancy” ones. Wrapping paper too!

Based on how careful my family was about not tearing it and how my grandmother would fold it, I figured it must be really expensive…yeah, both are super cheap.”

11. Everybody’s doing it.

“College.

My oldest brother and all his friends went to college, never mentioning the expense.

As a kid, I thought it must be cheap because “all the guys are doing it.””

12. We’re staying in tonight…

“Going out to eat.

I think I thought it cost like $10-20 or something. I never understood why we didn’t go to more restaurants when I was a kid. Thought my mom was just cheap.

Turns out feeding a family of five at mediocre restaurant can easily cost over $100.00 if people get drinks, appetizers, and dessert.”

13. My life is over!

“I stood on our toilet seat and broke it when I was around 10. I was so upset thinking that it was the biggest mistake of my life and would cost my parents so much money.

I replaced my toilet seat last week and it cost me $6.”

14. Only for the very wealthy…

“Balloons.

Such an extravagance! Once a year only, for your birthday party – and even then you get just one each. Be careful, don’t pop it!

I prized that thing – it provided entertainment for days.

You can buy 100 for a fiver.”

15. Moms do that kind of stuff.

“Always thought clothing was cheap.

Wasn’t until I was in college that I realized I always had new clothing because my mom never bought anything for herself for life 15 years.”

16. That’s all I’ll need!

“Ten dollars is a lot of money for a kid.

I thought I could run off to California, pay for the flight, food, and downpayment for a celebrity mansion with ten dollars.”

I don’t know why, but I got a HUGE kick out of those responses.

Now it’s your turn!

In the comments, please share the things that you wrongly thought were really expensive or really cheap when you were a kid!

We look forward to hearing from you!
