Malieka told BuzzFeed News that last weekend, Melodi-Rose poured her juice on the floor and then gave her mom a death glare. "I really wanted to laugh, but you’ve got to be a parent," Malieka said.

She found the juice disobedience hilarious. “You’re really going to sit here and mug your own mother, when you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing," she remembered thinking.Between Melodi-Rose's dad being deployed and having a new little brother, the mom said that her daughter is "going to do asshole-like things" to get her attention.

She found the juice disobedience hilarious. “You’re really going to sit here and mug your own mother, when you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing," she remembered thinking.

Between Melodi-Rose's dad being deployed and having a new little brother, the mom said that her daughter is "going to do asshole-like things" to get her attention.

She tweeted about the whole thing.

Malieka clarified that she never calls her daughter an asshole directly.

"I just mumble it under my breath, when she walks away," she said.

Tons of people responded, saying that kids' intelligence is underestimated. "They know what they're doing," one person said in response to the tweet.

@mamalieky1 😭😭😭😭 they know what they’re doing, i don’t blame you lol

This aunt said that her niece made the evidence of her tragic wrongdoing known, and threw the proof right in her face.

True. My niece ripped my new Fenty sponge and threw it at me after so I knew https://t.co/QskfGCiKRU

This kid also made her slight abundantly clear.

@mamalieky1 Agreed. My 5 year old told me I look tired and pointed to my eyebags to clarify her point

"Kids are pricks," someone else concluded, after sharing a story about a boy throwing toys and then laughing about it.

Apparently some people use acronyms so that they can more discreetly incorporate the use of "asshole" into their homes. In this house, toddlers are TFAs which stands for "Tiny Fuckin' Assholes."

In our house we call the 3 & 4 year olds “TFA’s” which translates to “tiny fuckin assholes” lol https://t.co/ND7UXcuE96

For some people, the whole conversation triggered some beautiful family memories.

When I was little, my dad told my brother to shut the fuck up. Several parents around him gasped. How dare he say t… https://t.co/SfpMPvkPfA
