April Fool's Day is every parent's playground as they come up with some epic ways to prank their kids and get pranked back.
April Fools' Day. The day when everyone is too afraid to believe anything because they never know what might be true and what might not. But that doesn't stop people from wanting to prank each other. Usually, it's the youngsters trying to out-prank their friends. But that doesn't stop the parents from getting a little creative and making their kids go wild. So users took to Reddit and Twitter to share the stories of pranking their children or getting pranked by their parents.

Of course, the coin flips both ways and here are some kids who rubbed their hands together in glee as they pranked their parents.

The last #aprilfools prank I pulled was 30 years ago. I was 13, and I switched all of the salt and sugar in my parents house. Every. Last. Grain. My Dad had the worst coffee of his life to start his day. And my actions ruined a steak dinner, and a pot of soup. #Regrets #BadDay— David Badurina (@DBadurina) April 1, 2019
I used to get my parents every year with #AprilFools pranks, but the best one was not doing anything at all. Watching my mom go an entire day too afraid to open a door or turn on a faucet was the best outcome. 😂— Cael Dooley (@caelandooley) April 1, 2019
#AprilFools prank: texted my parents that I was dropping out of law school after this semester and moving to Chicago. My mom bought it. Hard. I'm an adult living away from home but I'm now apparently grounded.— Carlisle (@carlizuhl) April 1, 2019
With family stories like these, it's not a stretch to say that "all's fair in love and war", especially when it comes to family members. It's almost like April Fool's Day is a "get out of jail free" card. They'll forgive you... right? I mean, what's the most they can do?
After all, it did start because those who were too slow to realize that the start of the new year had shifted from March end to January 1st in the Gregorian calendar, became the butt of jokes and pranks. So basically, it's like your parents are telling you that you may not be the brightest bulb in the room but they love you anyway. Then again, you're practically telling them the same thing when you pull a prank on them.
