Even Good Moms Have Been Known to ‘Torture’ the Kids

This is brilliant!

When we asked moms on Twitter to tell us reasons their kids might try to sue them later in life, I knew we'd get some good stuff. However, I had no idea we'd get such genius undercover parenting tips and techniques as well. Seriously, you moms are super-smart secret agents of harmless child torture and manipulation, and I'm totally using some of this stuff. A little well-played parental "torture" is necessary for every good childhood.

Lots of moms shared ideas for their kids' future lawsuits under the #SoSueMeKid hashtag. Here are some of the funniest responses we received from mom readers.
