About

Confession Kid is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a young boy performing a facepalm hand gesture. The captions typically contain confessions about naive and embarrassing childhood beliefs.

Origin

On April 27th, 2013, Redditor Notmiefault submitted an image macro titled “Confession Kid” to the /r/AdviceAnimals[2] subreddit, recollecting how he used to believe as a child that automatic doors were controlled by an unseen person viewing a surveillance camera (shown below).

Confession Bear

The image macro series bears some resemblance to its precursory advice animal character Confession Bear, which is used by Redditors to confess taboo behaviors and controversial opinions that are often kept secret for fear of being ostracized.
