Summertime is here, and that means that kids all over the country are heading off to summer camp! For a lot of families, it's a way to manage their childcare when school is out but parents still have to work. But plenty of kids head to camp because it's just a lot of fun! You might have memories of your own summers spent at sleep-away camp; the adventures, the bunks, the lasting friendships you probably made.
But some kids are ... different. While their friends are writing letters home to mom and dad, some kids might take the opportunity to stick it the man! The man being mom and dad and their camp counselors, ha! Jeffrey Lazarus' daughter is off at camp, and he shared a hilarious letter he got from her. It's not your usual gushy note.
So my daughter sent home the best camp letter ever. pic.twitter.com/pBC4fyj3gn— Jeffrey Lazarus (@jlazarus001) June 19, 2018
We're sure this little resister's camp counselors gave her some pointers on what to include in her letter. But she was having none of that! Rather than wax poetic about nature, all the fun she's having, and how much she misses everyone, Jeffrey's daughter chose to use the letter to prove once and for all that no one is the boss of HER!
In the replies to his tweet, Jeffrey says his daughter is 14, and says that he is regularly the object of her resistance. We hear that, Jeffrey! Smart, strong teen girls are a force to be reckoned with!
The replies to his tweet are just as funny as his daughter's letter, too.
Daughter: how do you spell “Resistance?”— Earth Angel (@stunnagoddess) June 20, 2018
Counselor: what are you writing? pic.twitter.com/h0NgqCq0y6
My brother once sent home a sealed, empty envelope with "I'm alive 🙂" on the outside. It's been on my parents' fridge for 11 years!— Mary (@marymarylalala) June 20, 2018
Thanks for the update, son! Kids are so funny, especially when we least expect it.
My sister’s letter from camp started out a frantic “OMG I HATE IT HERE HOW COULD YOU I AM SO UPSET I CRY” and ended on a calmer “the food is good and Becky is my new friend. Horses!”— mdrrrr (@MorgBGreat) June 20, 2018
My parents still have it saved somewhere 😂😭
Listen, we get that she probably missed her family, but good food and horses! Is there anything better than good food and horses?! We're sure Becky ended up being a great friend, and they enjoyed many a camp meal talking about said horses.
My kid sent me one that only said ‘please send duck tape’— eilatan (@emelmom) June 20, 2018
There's probably a great explanation for the duct tape, but that would be a ... concerning letter to get in the mail, LOL.
Summer camp is a great experience for kids, and as we can see from these letters, it can be a hilarious endeavor for parents, too. Keep on resisting, sister! Don't let the camp man keep you down!
