LPT: don't use your child's embarrassing stories as dinner party talk. They are your child's personal memories and humiliating them for a laugh isn't cool.
I've probably listened to my mum tell one particularly cringe worthy story dozens of times and I think everyone she knows has been told it. Every time she tells it, most of the time in front of me, I just want to crawl under the table and hide. However, that would give her another humiliating story to tell.
Just because you're a parent doesn't mean you have a right to humiliate them for a laugh.
I do think that telling about something cute they once did (pronouncing something wrong, for example) is different to an embarrassing story, but if your child doesn't like you telling about it then you should still find something else to talk about.
Edit: I mean telling stories from any part of your child's life at any part of your child's life. When I say child, I don't mean only someone under 18, I mean the person that is your child.
Edit again: This post blew up, can't believe how big it has gotten. Getting a lot of comments from the children (including adult children) involved but also

LPT: Don't assume that someone laughs at their own jokes because they think they're funny; some people are socially anxious, and worry what you'll think of them if you don't realize that they're joking, so they laugh to make it obvious it was a joke.

Just because I can manage to smile, laugh, and participate in the occasion does not mean I’m fine. Depression is wildly misunderstood for something so common.
I have been depressed for a couple decades. There’s a plethora of information available on the internet to help better understand it, but there are things personal to each individual that may manifest uniquely.
Self harming is not always hand in hand with suicidal thoughts and plans.
Yes, I can socialize well and participate in events and activities, if I make it there. Depression isn’t always a stereotypical scratchy animation of a woman wearing an over size sweater clutching a hot cup of beverage huddled up in the corner staring at her trauma in the distance.
When I am socializing and participating, I am absolutely using an automated pilot system of socially acceptable behaviors, mannerisms, and gestures that I do not have to think about. I lift the spoon of ice cream to my mouth, let it melt, and swallow without thinking much about it just as much as I nod in agreement, furrow my brows in suspicion, and modestly laugh at attempts at humor. I want to others to know that I want th
