Top Ten Things You Don't Want Your Parents to Catch You Doing

So you are minding your business home alone when surprise! One or both of your parents came home early! Here's the stuff they don't want you to see you ever doing.

The Top Ten Things You Don't Want Your Parents to Catch You Doing

1 Masturbating

My dad caught me masturbating twice. The first time he walked in on me and it was kinda awkward but we didn't talk about it afterward, I guess he just accepted it because he knew it was normal and I'm sure he does it or he at least used to do it when he was younger. The second time he caught me I had my door open, which was stupid of me and he saw me masturbating. He had a chat with me about it but all he mainly said was its fine if I want to do it, he doesn't mind me doing it but I just need to close my door because he doesn't want my sisters or mum to have to see me masturbating. But mostly he was pretty chill, I guess cause he knew every guy does it, it is normal and he most likely does it or did it when he was my age. (to be honest, he probably just has sex every night now with my Mum! ) - That would feel better and you'd get better orgasms anyway!

Lol so true, if parents caught you jerking your fly... then wouldn't be so happy about it. I mean there's been a few times I was almost got caught doing this. My advice whatever room you're doing it make sure it's locked and that the volume's muted. All I have to say about that.

I KNEW this would be at #1 before I even clicked on the list.

Imagine being quiet for so long, but suddenly your dark secrets have been discovered then the explaining gets too complicated.

2 Breaking their stuff

I accidentally broke my mom's heater while carrying it down the stairs. She told me to take it down from her room and I accidentally tipped it over and broke the dials as I was picking it up. She forgave me afterwards.

It's one thing to mess with their stuff without permission. It's another to break something they own.

Oh you broke insert high tech gadget that was overly expensive.

I have broken/destroyed MANY items when I was a kid...

3 Burning down the house

They'd probably notice

My parents enjoy the Talking Heads' music.

By having the stove kitchen run a good portion, and KABOOM! There goes the home owners insurance.

Why would you be doing that in the first place?

4 Having sex

Once my dad showed me a video of a father who caught his 12 yr old daughter having sex and he beat the Crap out of her. The video was about 34 seconds long but he was spanking her REALLY HARD ON THE HEAD AND THE LEGS. Abuse much? She could've got bruises from THAT! And I think the father is stupid because at the end he said get yo butt in dat bed! I mean that's probably the place where she was having sex at, your just giving her another chance to have sex.

I really don't care to be honest, I'd be more annoyed than awkward to be honest

What a disturbing thing to find.

Why is this not on top?!

5 Eating all of the food

I do this whether they see me or not, I don't care if it pisses em off

My parents already catch me doing this

I have a fear that somebody's going to walk in on me eating something and be like "WHY are you eating all the food? "

My pet peeve lol-strange spider

6 Watching porn

I don't necessarily watch porn but I do watch the stuff that I don't want my parents know I'm watching

Not a porno movie but it is an adult movie. I watched "Showgirls", a 1995 movie about topless showgirls in Vegas. I knew that my mom didn't approve of this so I decided to turn it on and watch when she's out of the room. She walked in later and caught me watching it and then soon she told me that it's too inappropriate for it and that I shouldn't be watching those types of movies.

by the way I am 26.

Don't really give a damn, I don't watch porn anymore anyway

I never watch this kind of stuff, and never will.

7 Getting into their stuff

I'm nosy, so when I'm worried about my parents, I go through their stuff to see what's going on. If my mom caught me, she'd just get mad. If my dad caught me, he'd kill me. That's why I do it when they're not home.

Once during a party my relatives gave me permission to raid their pantry and I got in trouble with my dad for it

By starring at there personal fiance... that would be considered somewhat creepy intentions.

I am worried my parents are doing something bad all the time like chiting on them or going out with some one else but they always tell me that they would never ever do it but still so I get there phone s.and see who they texted or called one problem my dad's phone is vere hard to get like he has it all the the time I feel like this people


8 Committing suicide

I want the parents to walk in while the child is commiting suicide to try to prevent it from happening.

What? Then they could stop you because everyone knows nothing's worth killing yourself over.

Depends if you are willing to give up you're life at the point of hopelessness.

Wow. They could stop you any moment now!

9 Smoking weed

Just do it outside and mask the smell with mint gum.
I've never actually done it though lol.

My mom wouldn't care but my dad would beat the hell out of me probably

Unless you have parents that do drugs every day (and are subsequently awful at parenting, for the record), no parent ever wants to catch a kid doing drugs. You learn this kind of stuff is school yet some kids you might know decide to do it. Heck, I see lots of smokers on campus daily.

On the other hand, there is that whole legalization business for marijuana, so I'm not exactly sure what the future will hold for the pot smokers.

Duh! Off course parents would not let their own daughters and sons smoke weed. But it's also their own choice.

10 Wasting electricity

My youngest brother does this all the time, yet my parents don't seem to care at all.

I opened all of the lights and machines in my house. And 10 MINUTES LATER... *power goes out*.

It's cloudy/raining outside during the day, I turn the lights on to see/read better and my mom is like "you're wasting electricity! Turn it of! "

By having it on in the middle of the night I've down way too many times.

The Contenders

11 Breaking your own stuff

They'll rat on you regardless of whose stuff gets broken.

Yeah overheat, and not be up to date, by cleaning your files, and then buy a new computer that sucks.

I got in trouble for dropping my phone many times

12 Making a mess in the house

Not going to make the same mistake my brother ended up pulling.

When I was 7 I got in trouble for puking on the carpet and when was like 11 or 12 I got in trouble for puking on the bathroom floor instead of the trash can (I was sick and I couldn’t make it to the trash in time)

13 Singing

I am usually uncomfortable about singing in front of others although my teacher said that I have a good singing voice.

It's especially worse when you are metal screaming or growling.

My dad videotaped me singing to a song from some kid show when I was little when I wasn't looking. I felt super embarrassed when he told me. Thank goodness he didn't show it to anyone...

That would be horrible because I sing really bad...I mean good.

14 Getting naked

My mom caught me naked, but that was ‘cause I was changing and I forgot to lock the door. Lmao
Good thing it was just my mom, not my dad or my brother. That would've been worse.

My mom constantly walks in on me whenever I'm in the shower...AND I'M FEMALE!

I enjoy being naked but I'd rather they didn't see

When I'm naked its ME TIME for GAD sakes. -LetsGoSwagger

15 Doing drugs

My cousin once brought cough syrup and made lean, my aunt caught him and beat the crap out of him.

Stay away from lean, kids.

I don't do drugs but my sister tried it once, my mom beat her. Sadie never did it again

Kids simply do not take drugs in any circumstance.

Decided against doing hard drugs but I love me some dab

16 Watching GoAnimate Grounded Videos

I have to watch them with headphones/earbuds and out of my parents' sights

I would not want my parents to know that I'm watching a GoAnimate Grounded Video

Okay then

You’re grounded (says 💯 times)
For 1847175038285872728427274836 years

17 Talking to yourself

When I was little, my parents would tell me to stop because they think it's weird. I didn't stop, and now I still talk to myself.

I commentate when playing games but don't like it when people hear me. My mum says my lips randomly move and that's just me talking to the voices in my head, which I believe that for some reason some are real people across the world. I'm weird and offbeat, end of story.

My parents think that only people with mental problems do this

I do this all the time.

18 Being on TheTopTens

I got caught a couple times she said not for me to be on this site again and I still do it lol

I've been on TheTopTens for over a year and have never been caught.

I just don't like when my parents look at my screen in general, even if it's just something normal like Amazon or YouTube.

As far as they both know, I don't go on here

I'm extremely protective of my internet privacy though

19 Listening to inappropriate music

Not a problem. Most of the music I listen to barely has any swears but when it does, it's usually only an f bomb or two.

Only my dad cares, and he's barely home. With my mom, as long as there no major "language" she's fine.

My overprotective mom won't let me listen to "inappropriate" music but allows my YOUNGER cousins to listen to songs with expletive language in them...

Only thing my dad doesn't want me listening to is Rush cause they're """libertarian propaganda"""

My mom doesn't care what I listen to though and I listen to what I want anyway

20 Seducing inappropriate partners

Happened to me, I was sitting next to my girlfriend once and my cousin gave me a funny look. After my aunt left, my cousin took me for a walk and explained that my girlfriend is a hoe. I always end up dating hoes for some reason.

Better get some protecting otherwise this will come back to haunt you down the path, and before you know you could be on the Maury show lol.

They talk about getting a boyfriend or girlfriend but get skeptical when u actually do

21 Twerking

My mom wouldn't care, since all the females in our family like to twerk lol.

Oh gosh. That's just disgusting!

More like "Watching twerking videos".

Nice picture by the way...

Imagine twerking in 2019

22 Wasting water

My parents complain that I shower long, yet my mom and sister showers last EVEN LONGER!

Imagine running the sink for a couple of hours... then a week later the water bill is up high gee I wonder what acts you pulled this time.

23 Watching a parody on YouTube

But Bart Baker's parody of Anaconda is educational, Mom!

My mum always asks "what do you watch on youtube" in that voice as if she knew exactly what videos you saw. Why the heck would my mum be interested in a youtube channel about pokemon cards and cutting up Elemental Monkeys and Hawluchas

She'd kill me if she knew I were watching Bart Baker.

If she knew that I watched Tabbes, I'd die.

24 Suicide

How is masturbating and not suicide worse to catch your child doing. I would rather see my son or daughter masturbate the hang or stab themselves.

25 Staying up past your bedtime

I stayed up twelve minutes past my bedtime, and my dad forced me to stay up until 4 a.m. cleaning! Then, I can't take any naps, even though I'm so sleepy! Like, who does this to their children?

Ha, imagine my mom walking in on me on my phone at 4am, I'd be grounded for so long.

I don't sleep 90% of the time and they can't make me

I do this every day. Only my dad cares though

26 Bullying

My mom doesn't like it when I "terrorize" my little cousins.

When they were younger they would constantly annoy me on purpose and whenever I yell at them to get them to stop they would cry and I would get in trouble for "being mean" to them.

I wasn't terrorizing them. I was trying to teach them a lesson! >:(

27 Watching South Park

Lol. I watch South Park with my mom from time to time. Guess I'm lucky.

When I was SIX I watched South Park. Not joking. My dad knew and LET us watch it then said "don't tell mum". My dad is one of those parents who lets their kids do whatever.

I get this one since they do attack pop culture in ruthless aggression fashion where it works really well, but at times way controversial methods.

I really want to watch this show, but Mom doesn't let me. I even got to the point where one of the items on my christmas list was for mom to let me watch South Park. - Blaze

28 Watching YouTube poop

Thanks Hotel Mario for giving this to us... you may be god awful of a video game, but this is probably the best thing that has come outta this cult phenomenon.

Unless if it's clean.

Once again, my dad watches Gamerpoop, so

I watch it every day lmao.

29 Watching Angry Grandpa videos

My dad watches Gamerpoop, so

Wait… what's wrong with watching Angry Grandpa videos?

30 Eating Dessert

I eat so much sweets yet I’m skinny. Lmao logic.

My mom is paranoid about me getting diabetes so when I enjoy the occasional dessert during parties that she’s not attending I have to tell her in a way that won’t cause her to overreact like crazy

31 Trying to nuke North Korea

Yeah I got caught and I was grounded for a couple months

I got caught, and now I'm grounded.

32 Watching My Little Pony

I secretly watch it since I was 11. For some reason they hate it.

I watch My Little Pony!

They already caught me watching it before

I secretly like My Little Pony. Ever since 2013.

33 Stealing their stuff

Once I tried to "steal" money from my parents as a joke and my mom was mad at me but my dad knew that I was joking all along.

My dad had this giant bag of Starburst jelly beans in a drawer in his room, and I used to always steal them.

Such as wealth which ends up losing trust when being left alone.

34 Playing video games

I'm allowed to play video games. I'm just not allowed to play them on school days.

I had limited age restrictions on what I could buy.

I don't really play a lot of video games anyway

For some reason, they hate it.

35 Drawing “inappropriate” Pictures

Once I drew a penis on the teachers’ head as a prank. I got suspended for school for a month.

Once I drew a harmless picture of me as a 2 year old in a diaper and my mom was like “why are you drawing that? ”

36 Watching any movie that has rape, sex, or nudity in it

Once Upon A Time In America is in my top five movies

I watched "Showgirls" in my mom's presence and she caught me and told me it was too inappropriate for me. I'm 26.

Also she nearly caught me watching the gang rape scene while I was watching "Leaving Las Vegas"

37 Watching anime

My dad likes anime so I'm able to.
But I'm afraid that they'll catch me because I don't want them to say that 'it's why I'm so slow' but the truth is anime made me a better person!

Not that much of a crime since Anime is allowed in the household... not the biggest fan, but its not that bad as some make it out to be.

What’s wrong with anime? I like anime.

38 Playing Grand Theft Auto

I play it all the time, my dad knows about this but he’s chilled.

39 Watching ISIS beheading videos

Somebody has a sadistically awful mind for even thinking about this in the fist place.

I browse bestgore sometimes

40 Getting caught for enabling KinzChat Plus on Webkinz
41 Watching adult movies

I watched "Showgirls", a 1995 movie about topless showgirls in Vegas. I knew that my mom didn't approve of this so I decided to turn it on and watch when she's out of the room. She walked in later and caught me watching it and then soon she told me that it's too inappropriate for it and that I shouldn't be watching those types of movies.

by the way I am 26.

Again, my parents don't really care

Midnight Cowboy is so ' good though

I watched Showgirls and The Hangover. They both have nudity in it so when my mom enters and there’s a nude scene coming up. I just skip to that part and tell my mom that it’s buffering.

42 Posting comments on websites

So me.

43 Reading in bed

I don't see what's wrong with this

44 Demanding/requesting presents and gifts from relatives

Last year my mom told me that my relatives were coming from CA and will be staying for a few weeks. I was so excited. It also happens that my birthday will be occurring during the time of their visit. Since my uncles, aunts, cousins and sister usually get stuff for their birthdays and I almost never get gifts for my birthdays, I secretly emailed them to give me $100 per person as a birthday gift. I made sure my mom wasn't around or aware before sending the emails. It worked great until they came over and gave me the $$ while my mom was watching. Then they told her my plan. They weren't supposed to say anything abut the emails to my mom! My mom then questioned me and I told her how unfair that everyone else got stuff on their birthdays but I never get anything on mine. She said that I shouldn't do that.

If you don't like my plan, then give me stuff for my birthday! >:(

45 Picking on others

Being the bully yourself is not a very good attribute to ones personality corrupt by the raised background.

46 Watching Dora The Explorer

This was one of the main shows I used to watch a lot when I was little, and my parents didn't care.

Huge difference between kid friendly, and total ''risk hub search.''

They always judge my moms like WATCH SOMETHING YOUR AGE. MAYBE THERE's NOTHING ON! - LetsGoSwagger

47 Kissing or having sex with someone of the same sex

That's not something a lot of parents get mad about, my sister was for a year and my mother was mad but my father supported her completely. (My mom gets mad when you look at her phone for the time)

Okay then you are referring to homosexuals, and Lesbians... by all means the preference of ones gender bias varies to this day.

My mom does know I'm bi and doesn't care.

that's gay

48 Eating Snacks

I have to sneak them and then hide them as I'm eating them

49 Watching YouTube videos

They think that YouTube gives my computer viruses

50 Watching videos of little kids on YouTube

My dad thinks it's child pornography.
