19 Epic April Fool's Day Pranks Parents Pulled on Their Kids

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.

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.
