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

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!

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

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.

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 Having sex

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

Why is this not on top?!

Masturbating, they do not get angry. Sex, they go mad and ban you from the person you ar doing it with forever

Exactly. Why the hell isn't this number 1? Who the hell thinks this is less embarrassing than masturbating?

What a disturbing thing to find.

4 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?

5 Eating all of the food

One time, my mom caught me rummaging for snacks in the cabinet and she yelled at me

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? "

6 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

This happened to me today

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

7 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.

8 Watching porn

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.

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

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

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

9 Committing suicide

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

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

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

Wow. They could stop you any moment now!

10 Wasting electricity

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

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

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 Newcomers

? Playing Doom

I played DooM a lot in 6th grade cause I found a site that had MS DOS games that wasn't blocked but I didn't tell my parents.

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 Getting naked

I started getting private when I'm nude at almost age 8. It would get embarrassing if it happens today. Even if I would be an adult. - Connor4808

My parents accidentally walk in on me changing/showering sometimes. It’s so embarrassing

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

14 Singing

Yeah, I don't like it when my parents hear me sing. I don't sound perfect. not even for rock and hip-hop/rap. Some people say that you would sound like an adult at age 17. I am middle-school aged and when I was 10, I was quietly singing a part of Bohemian Rhapsody and my dad recording it. I was embarrassed and I am glad he didn't show it to anyone. And I don't want anyone but my Dad to see videos of me crying for crazy, little to no reasons at mostly age 2 to 5. Hey at least I wouldn't do the stuff at the top 11 because I'm in middle school. - Connor4808

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...

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.

Kids simply do not take drugs in any circumstance.

Decided against doing hard drugs but I love me some dab

My parents caught me. I'm surpised this isn't on the top of the list. they were super pissed!

16 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

17 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

My parents hate it when I watch these because they are “offensive to children.” That’s why I tend to watch them in private

Okay then

18 Talking to yourself

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.

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.

My parents think that only people with mental problems do this

I do this all the time.

19 Being on TheTopTens

It's not a bad site but there could be weird or inappropriate lists on the web. Lucky I haven't been caught on TheTopTens at all. - Connor4808

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.

20 Listening to inappropriate music

A lot of the songs I like have swear words and my mom hates it when I listen to them

I'm fine if it's Rap but not 6ix9ine because he says the n word a lot and he is white. Good thing I listen to the app, "YouTube Music" at Dad's Car and the Radio at Mom's. - Connor4808

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.

21 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.

22 Staying up past your bedtime

Sometimes, my mom catches me on my phone in the middle of the night and she grounds me

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.

It sometimes happens to me. I can't sleep in Christmas Eve and Vacation Trips because Xmas was my favorite holiday. I don't really care about the presents. and Yesterday at 1:30, My youngest Cousin, Jacob was here so I had to play with him. and Go to my uncle's house for swimming. And we went back at 11:00 >:( because I haven't finished my Canvas yet! So I looked on my phone. - Connor4808

23 Wasting water

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.

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

24 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

25 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.
