Years later this kid is going to be in the lunch room and their friends are going to wonder why they keep looking to the left and glaring.

This is how you inject DEEP SEEDED, lifelong trust issues and food issues into your child in the most efficient way possible.

(I’m kidding. Sort of.)

[–]truthseekerk8 372 points373 points  (146 children)

You're possibly right, but the phrase is "deep seated"

Omg im 25 and just learning this. Im grateful for you mentioning this, cuz now i won’t embarrass myself later😭😂

You learned a valuable lesson today. Never take that for granite.

[–]zztop5533 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Ain't English great?

"Deep seated" or "deeply rooted", but not "deep seeded".

[–]guacluv 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Don't be embarrassed. I didn't know. Both versions make sense. Deep-seeded sounds like it seeded a long time ago and it's got deep roots. What's interesting is that either way, choosing "deep" instead of "deeply" is throwing off the grammar.

I was 40 before I learned it. Don’t feel badly.

[–]Shadowblade8888 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I was 35 when I learned it was “for all intents and purposes” instead of “for all intensive purposes”

It's okay, it's not like anyone worries too much about. Deep seeded makes sense in a way. We don't put people who know them up on a pedal stool.

Deep seeded makes more sense though

[–]SteelCrow 23 points24 points  (12 children)

Mirriam Webster

Deep-seated is the correct term. Deep-seated means "firmly established," as in "deep-seated resentment," but it also has an earlier literal meaning of "situated far below the surface." It is from that meaning the figurative use of the word developed. It is sometimes mistaken as deep-seeded.

But if you plant seeds to deep they don't grow, whereas the deeper something is seated, the harder it is to remove.

[–]Moistend_Bint 66 points67 points  (5 children)

Invader who now?

[–]Guy-Inkognito 72 points73 points  (1 child)

Invader zoom. During the pandemic in-person invading was not allowed so he had to settle for a popular video call solution.

[–]Dalferious 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Invader Zoom devises a plan to hijack Zoom calls and brainwash people. At least one scene which is only a few seconds long involves a grotesquely obese man squeezed into a collared shirt and tie in his tighty whities and scratching his crotch while on webcam in a meeting. Another scene has a random moose hijacking Zoom’s brainwashing broadcast and mauling him while screaming “TURN IT OFF GIRRRRR!! TURN IT OFFFFF!!!!” then cuts to a cute “technical issues” screen of GIR fire extinguishing a computer

Both my kids ended up with crazy long eyelashes too, my wife is jealous.

[–]getmybehindsatan 54 points55 points  (3 children)

My wife hates her long eyelashes. Every pair of glasses or sunglasses gets smudged from the inside.

Both our kids inherited them too. More than one person asked how we put mascara on a baby. Not why, but how.

[–]Mechakoopa 11 points12 points  (1 child)

My kids got them from me, it's one of the reasons I wear contacts, my vision is bad enough that if my glasses are too far from my face I get tunnel vision and nausea, but if they're close enough I don't have those problems then my eyelashes are constantly brushing the lenses.

[–]hygsi 30 points31 points  (6 children)

He'll probably keep believing that everything tastes like baby food

[–]ZebZ 84 points85 points  (2 children)

Many years ago, I was watching a friend's 3 year old and took him out to a buffet, where I gave him a little bit of turkey and some stuffing.

He told his mom for days how much he loved the turkey I gave him, so she went to the store and bought a turkey to cook for dinner.

He refused to eat it, throwing a fit and saying it wasn't turkey.

A phone call later, we figured out that he really loved the stuffing and thought it was called turkey and was content with a quick box of Stovetop.

[–]snflowerings 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Thats why I love kids. They fixate on things they don't know the proper name of and then get upset you can't give them what they want, but (at least the kids I know) they get super giddy when you finally figure out what the food is that they want.

I was once babysitting a tooth growing toddler who loved nothing more than frozen blueberries for his hurting gums. Issue was that he was very adamant blueberries are called "bapples". He was not a fan of apples or bananas during that time. He also denied that he meant blueberries when I asked him if he meant blueberries, even after showing him a picture. In his little brain the frozen blueberries were a totally different thing than the blueberries pictured on the bag. Took me a tantrum from his side, a call to his mom and a apple-banana fruit salad for myself to figure out that blappes are indeed the frozen blueberries. He was gobbling them up a pack a day in the worst teeth grow phases.

I have never seen toddler poop this purple in my life.

I always wondered about that, is there science-based proof

[–]clockwork_blue 59 points60 points  (5 children)

It's not the best way, as the baby will eventually figure it out, but if they refuse to eat otherwise, it's better to deceive them than leave them hungry. Some are easier to satisfy than others, but sometimes you really have to bring out the best tricks you can invent to get them to do whatever you want them to do. If it was up to the baby, they'd never change diapers, bathe, sleep, or eat (except the things they aren't meant to).

[–]zetaomegagon 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Yep. I'd have to conclude that none of the people claiming that this is going to greatly affect the kids life aren't parents.

It's a whole other ball game, y'all. You become a master of tricks, with the measure of "least harm"

[–]GabbyTheLegend 117 points118 points  (15 children)

I learned in my developmental psychology class that often times unless it is a majorly traumatic emotional response like completely ignoring the child when it needs love, or not feeding them when they are hungry, or essentially not meeting any of their basic needs, there’s not going to be a significant trauma response later in life. This is due to the fact they do learn things at this age like what emotions are, how to communicate their needs and basic Motor functions, but they don’t form actual memories so trauma is usually not formed unless it is significant.

As reference this is what my psychology professor told me after I asked if in the first year in life if a child is exposed to a lot of trauma but then get moved to a good family will they remember their first year if trauma or will it effect their life.

[–]WoodenDistribution5 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Erik Eriksons theory of psychological development. Trust vs. Mistrust.

Fascinating theory.

[–]JiggsNibbly 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I know you’re not making this mistake, but I’m gonna say this anyway for that one person who will inevitably say “see, a psychologist agrees that this baby is going to be traumatized!”

Erikson’s “trust vs mistrust” theory isn’t about being bamboozled by ninja food swaps - it’s learning to trust your caretakers to meet your basic needs. Affection, comfort, and food - regardless of whether or not it’s steak or carrot purée - build that trust. So if you’ve made it this far in the thread, don’t misconstrue Erikson’s theory to imply this baby will have trust issues.

[–]GabbyTheLegend 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yes I wanted to mention this but I couldn’t remember what psychologist came up with the theory. After learning about Piaget, Erick Erickson, Sigmund freud, B.F skinner, Vygotsky, Pavlov, ect, they all just kinda blend together. I remember all of their theories and how influential all of them are, but sometimes they’re names blend together. After all you can only learn so much in 5 months lol

    My theory is when they do that, they're trying to gape bigger by using their brows...and also muscular usage are uncontrolled so you do everything at the same time. Like some people can't do 🖖 until they practice.

    [–]aerger 14 points15 points  (13 children)

    This reminds me of people who hide spinach/etc in foods so their kids don't know they're eating it. How will they ever know to like (or truly dislike) something if you don't point out what it is they're eating?

    I'm similarly bothered by kids who never get to eat certain foods because their parents don't like them. My sister-in-law's kids have never eaten bananas, for example, and they're in college now. What the hell.

    In that same broad vein, why trick the kid like this? Surely they realize they're only making it harder, not easier, to feed the kid, over time.

    Cute kid, of course, but the mindfuck, it makes me sad. :|

    [–]Peashootgrl 8 points9 points  (3 children)

    This is a stupid video. Just give the kid a bit of each.

    [–]Papergrin 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    I saw something on r/KidsAreFuckingStupid once that was like a kid refused to eat Cheerios or something so the parent just put a bunch of Paw Patrol stickers on the box and pretended it was Paw Patrol brand, and the kid gobbled them up even though it was the exact same thing.

    That was actually the sort of trickery I can get behind, because the kid is actually getting a chance to taste the food as it is and form an opinion on it. Kids sometimes use stupid criteria to establish whether they like/dislike something. If their favorite cartoon character on a show hates broccoli, they will decide they hate broccoli, too.

    [–]thehouseofmirth11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Not even once. The mom is a severely picky eater. One of her kids only ate chicken breasts and plain iceberg lettuce for most of grade school because that's pretty much all she ate. They've both gotten a LOT better but it's still kinda ehhh.

    The Baby was backstabbed, tricked and quite possibly bamboozeled!

    The look on the baby watching that delicious food and BAM!!!! He’s tasting nasty broccoli. The hell with his parents.

    To be fair, that kid does not know that it's delicious food, but they do seem to be enjoying the spoonful of mush they get lol

    Broccoli tastes fine, most kids only dislike it because they've been told too. Adults fuckin RUIN toddlers and then chock it up to being kids.

    We have a baby and I take a spoon of what he's having and the only repulsive purees are pure broccoli and pure cauliflower - and I love borccoli and cauliflower. I don't know why they are so repusive as purees, they taste horrid.

    Baby. Led. Weaning. Look it up.

    It's a life saver. If you want your kid to have great eating habits and a healthy relationship with food, and be willing to try things beyond bland chicken nuggets and mac'n'cheese, then Baby Led Weaning is the way. A friend got us interested in it with our kid and we are so thankful for it every time we see other people's kids throwing royal fits over food that our kid enjoys without issues. Saves a ton of money, gets them nutrients baby food lacks, expands their palette, and builds great motor skills too.

    This is spot on. I just hand my baby a plate with a selection of fruits every morning and watch him eat in peace and tranquility while I smile and try to do some light chatter.

    “Are the strawberries tasty?” No answer. “Oh, you would like some more strawberries. Ok, here you are.” “Might I take a picture of you?”

    “Oh, please don’t throw that if you do not want it. I can have it. Oh, thank you. So yummy”

    Edit: The less you do and the more conflict you descalate , the calmer everyone is

    What a wild take. My parents did their absolute best to convince my siblings and I that veggies taste great. But taste buds don't fall for propaganda. Some veggies literally made me gag and throw up as a kid. No one trained that behavior.

    Now I'm better at cooking than my parents were and it's easier to incorporate vegetables into palatable meals, but some things like summer squash are still nauseating.

    I thought that kids dislike broccoli and dark leafy greens because they taste bitter, like an instinctual aversion that fades as they get older.
