Parents are not super-humans and they can make mistakes as well. Thanks to their blunders, we get hold of some really hilarious parenting fails. So, here are 50 epic parenting fails that are so funny it's impossible not to laugh. Buckle up and let's start this fun ride.
1. Experienced Family of Travelers
Although it is an experienced family of travelers, they just didn’t know that baby spill-proof bottles exist in this world.
It was a nine-hour flight to Budapest and by the looks of it, we can say with certainty that it wasn't a pleasant flight for everyone. Lesson for the day: Always go with full planning.
2. Incorrect Calculations
There is a saying "look before you leap," and although it doesn't fit exactly here, we'll still enforce it.
The father had done all the calculations before swinging on the rope, but it seems like he didn’t include his daughter into that calculation.
3. First Of Many Parenting Fails
Trust us when we tell you that the kid was alright so you can laugh at this fail without feeling too bad.
Needless to say, this was the first of many parenting fails, and this dad will surely make a lot more…all parents make countless parenting mistakes.
4. Sunflower Daughter
Okay, this is hilarious. So, the parent was eating sunflower seeds and spitting the outside shells of seeds and minding her own business.
However, when she looked back, she realized that it was never a good idea to spit sunflower seeds out of the window. We wonder how the daughter reacted when she found out about it.
5. Dad Cleaning The Mess
Dads are the best at cleaning any mess. After all, they are the ones that create chaos in the first place.
This dad was so busy enjoying his burger that he spilled some ketchup on his son. The look on the kid’s face says it all.
6. When Dad Is Dressing The Baby For Pool
When you ask the dad to dress the kids, something wrong would most likely happen.
The helmet looks adorable on the kiddo, but why the bathing suit is on backward.
7. Half-Tanned Baby Face
Here is a valuable lesson for all parents out there. Don't let your baby sleep on you after you spray tan yourself.
The result would be half tanned babyface. Though the kid looks happy.
8. Lemur Baby Care Services
Okay, we want to clear it that this is not the lemur King Julian from Madagascar franchise. In fact, it is just a hardworking lemur that has started its own baby care service center.
The lemur just wanted to show that it is excellent with kids. The mother who took her daughter to zoo and someone told her that ‘ma'am, there's a lemur on your baby.'
9. Bad Santa
It seems like the parents of this jolly kid are a big fan of Billy Bob Thornton's 2003 commercial hit movie Bad Santa. The Santa on this boy’s sweater doesn’t look like a big fan of Christmas.
The parent didn't realize that she had accidentally sent her son to school in this newly bought ugly Christmas sweater. She soon realized it when she went to pick her son from school, and the kindergarten teacher pointed out the blunder.
10. That Perfect Family Portrait
The person who uploaded this photo emphasized on one major point and that is "we're good parents, I swear."
Don’t we all just love the “oh crap!” expression on people’s faces. Well, we won’t judge them at all.
11. The Meme Boy
Any meme lover could easily recognize this boy. He became an instant hit thanks to his priceless facial expression.
He was not pleased because his parent mixed up the pajama day with the picture day. This picture will forever remain gold.
12. Wrong Choice
We see numerous photos on the internet of how things unfold when babies are left with their fathers.
It seems like the mother didn’t learn from other parents’ mistakes and sent both father and daughter to buy “nice” clothes. Well, it is always the first and last time.
13. Told You, My English Sucks’
What could go wrong when you try to take a family photo in which you just have to spell out the word “love”?
One of the daughters uploaded the photo with a caption “Oh My Gosh, we really don’t deserve my mom.” Let’s just take the daughter’s side on this one.
14. We Got A Runner'
This kid looks like a natural runner. And we just love the look of determination on the kid’s face.
The look on the father's face shows his parenting experience in a nutshell. Everything is perfect in this photo.
15. One Beautifully Built Bar
To be real honest, we find this to be some real artistic work. Just look the drunken Lego guy.
The parent who uploaded this photo doesn’t feel surprised anymore because her 8-year-old son is more interested in building Lego bars with drunken patrons than millennium falcons or fire trucks.
16. A Memorable Fumble
The parent who uploaded this photo says that she still receives hate mails for the fumble, even though it's been two years since it happened. She has cleared it at multiple times that the baby was fine.
We are sorry, but we think that this photo is EPIC! We believe that it should be hanged in the living room of their house. All parents make fumbles, so it is no big deal.
17. Hey Mark, Go Test Drive That Toilet’
This is an epic parenting fail because of two reasons. First, the parent didn't stop his child from peeing. Second, he thought it would best to take a photo.
But hey, the damage was already done so that parent thought it would be better to take a photo.
18. At Least They Were Having Fun
Sometimes, you got to behave like a kid in front of your kids. We are quite sure it was dad’s idea.
Nevertheless, the kids look super happy, and we are sure they had a great laugh.
19. Not The Right Swimsuit
Mothers know that dads really suck at doing anything related to kids.
However, this mother wanted to give another chance to the clueless dad. What happened next was something that she knew would happen.
20. First Swimming Lesson
The dad in this photo knew that his son can only learn how to swim if there is an element of surprise.
Well, he threw him in the air, and the expression on kid's face is priceless.
21. That’s How You Learn Soccer’
It looks the father is a realistic person, and he wanted to make his son learn soccer the hard way.
The dad is like a high school bully, and many people won't find it amusing at all. What do you think about it?
22. A Cotton Stick
So the daughter's nose started to bleed, and the mother had to improvise. As there was nothing else she could use to stop the bleeding, she gave a tampon to her daughter.
At least the bleeding stopped, right. It was great timely thinking by the mom. There is a possibility the daughter will call tampons ‘cotton candies’ her entire life.
23. Just a Short Nap
Any place is right for a quick sleeper, especially if it is a small room of one-year-old kid.
This dad just wanted a short nap. After all, taking care of a kid can drain all the energy in you.
24. Oh No!
It seems like the grand-daddy forgot he has two kids. Grandparents do this all the time, so it is understandable.
Or there is also a possibility that he just wanted to take a photo with his favorite grandkid.
25. There’s Plenty of Room
Modern problems require modern solutions. This parent had to improvise when there was only one bassinet in the boot.
These are the sort of things that a lot of dads do without any trouble whatsoever.
26. Crazy Elephant
Before we talk about the kid, has anyone noticed how crazy the elephant looks? It really looks menacing.
The kid wanted a get to the ride, and when she finally had the chance to enjoy it, she realized it was not as fun as she thought it would be. You can't really understand kids.
27. We Don’t Think She’s Even Wearing a Diaper
We don’t blame the parent for thinking that dressing his daughter for daycare without a shirt would be a good idea.
But it looks like she isn’t even wearing a diaper. But who cares, she is such a cutie.
We thought that maybe the father wanted to teach his kid how to use head while playing soccer.
But that's not the case. The father was playing volleyball and preferred using his son's head instead of his hands.
“Son, remember I told you about a new hairstyle. Well, you have it now.”
We are sure the parent improvised and gave him a mohawk hairstyle.
30. kids Know Everything
So the teacher asked all the kids to draw what their parents do well. This kid knew what he had to do.
So, he drew his mother and perfectly explained what she likes to do all the time. It was a silent message for the mother.
31. Little Pennywise
If you have seen recently released horror movie IT Chapter Two, you’ll know why we are referring to this kid as little Pennywise.
The boss decided it was an excellent decision to bring his son to work. The kid doesn't look too much excited here.
32. Consider Getting a Cat
The parent uploaded this photo and asked: "would this be considered bad parenting?" No, absolutely not!
But it would be better to get a cat and then do this again. Both the baby and cat would have a lot of fun chasing the laser light.
33. Wrong Shirt
Here is a lesson for all parents: always check your kid’s shirt before sending him/her to school on picture day.
Well, that’s one way to make your kid famous. The kid has no idea what’s coming his way.
34. A Nice Dinner
We have no idea how she ended up in that position. Kids can do things adult can’t even think about doing.
Who knows her head is actually a pair of feet. They should have their daughter checked.
35. Evolution Has Gone Too Far!
This is probably going to be the most awesome baby book ever. The parent admitted his mistake here with just a simple ‘oops!’
We feel that the parent isn’t a big fan of following the rules and always tries do the opposite of what he is being told.
36. Holiday Parenting Fail
When you go to the beach with your kids, keep an eye on them or else they’ll bring home some sand with them.
These parents didn't pay enough attention to their kid, and he knew how to teach them a lesson for life…a cute lesson nevertheless.
37. Nice Shopping Experience
So this person’s girlfriend wanted to take his picture but instead captured something really hilarious.
We have no idea what kind of force was behind that hilarious accident. And just so you may know, everyone was fine.
38. Parenting is Not Easy
Any parent out there would admit that parenting is tough. This photo is relatable, and that's what makes it so funny.
The father came to make his son go to sleep, but it looks like the baby decided his father needs to sleep more than him.
39. That’s 5 Years of Therapy
This parent bought a new lamp for her daughter and soon realized that it was a big mistake.
But hey on the bright side, at least the eyes of Mickey Mouse didn’t glow in the dark.
40. Learning From Parents
This parent uploaded a photo and swore that she is a good parent, we’ll let you decide.
The daughter found the webcam and took a picture. It looks like she wanted to send a strong message.
41. Cupcake Makeup
Kids can apply almost anything on their faces. But still, the mother allowed her daughter to dress herself.
Well, the little angel did what any kid of her age would do. She looks cute.
42. A Cool Holiday Photo
Although the kid is falling, we’ll have to admit that it is still a cool photo that deserved to be on the internet and even the family photo album.
The look on the kid’s face tells that she accepted her fate at that moment.
43. Clown Makeup Gone Wrong
Although girls love it when moms apply makeup on them, this girl didn't approve of her mother's clown makeup job.
And we must admit that the mom did a terrible job there. We stand with you, kiddo.
44. No Need for Shoes
This parent uploaded the photo with a caption that says: “they are on their way to a third child, and yet they still manage to leave the house without shoes.”
It was 30 degrees outside, so it was no big deal. One day they’ll learn from this recurring mistake.
45. Oh Okay
All parents should know that it takes only a few seconds for a kid to put something in their mouth.
This kid looks surprised yet annoyed that his parent caught him in between the action.
46. Here are The Earplugs’
This is one of those moments when you realize that you have messed up big time.
The parent knew that there is going to be a lot of crying, and nothing could be done to avoid the inevitable.
47. At Least She Admitted
Now here is a parent who admitted her mistake. The broad smile on her face shows that she might repeat this mistake in the future.
One commenter wrote on her photo, “Your first mistake is listening to Kanye...”
48. Fast Learner
With a packet of Yogurt Melt in hands, this kid looks so natural at doing one thing he’s being told not to do.
The parent uploaded this photo with a sign of relief and wrote: "potty training is going so great."
49. Mini Picasso
The parent thought that it would be a great idea to have an afternoon dedicated to art.
Well, she didn't know that her daughter was more interested in painting herself than the canvas.
50. A Big Mistake
One thing that parents should never do is leave their kids unattended. The consequences can be like this one.
Well, the parent learned the lesson the hard way. The kid looks entirely unfazed, don't you think?
