Playing scary pranks on your kids doesn’t really come to mind when it comes to parents nurturing and preparing their children for the big wide world that they’ll eventually have to confront when they grow up flee the nest.

But sometimes preparing your kids means playing a scary prank on them with the intention of scaring the bejesus out of them so much that they will learn, well, they learn something – mainly that pranking can be great fun as long as you you’re the prankster and that parents can sometimes be a-holes.

Plus, when they eventually go to college, they’ll have the perfect grounding in what scary pranks to pull.

So take a look below at some examples of parents who have performed their responsible parenting(?) duties and gone the extra mile to prepare their kids for the rest of their lives with 5 of the best scary pranks for children.

And probably an adulthood filled with therapy to overcome their childhood traumas in the process.
