[Serious] Parents of Reddit, what’s something your kids do without realizing it hurts your feelings?

Kids can't appreciate national parks and surfing,

I mean, I did. It could depend though on if you raised them with trips like that. I loved video games as a kid, but from the time I was three years old we also did a ton of camping, hiking, park trips, cruises, etc. At 13 I wouldn't have even thought about video games while on a cruise. I wanted to explore the islands, and horseback ride, and parasail, and go on jet skis.

Now, if you don't raise your kid doing any of that stuff, and then throw them in the car at 13 to go on a trip to Yellowstone or the Grand Canyon, then there's a good chance they won't give a shit because they weren't raised to appreciate that kind of stuff.
