Times Parents Failed So Hard They Deserved An F In Parenting
Andrew Parker - September 6, 2019

Despite parents (generally) having really only the best intentions for their beloved children, they all sometimes have their downfalls. After all, being a parent can be a seriously tough job, there can be a lot to remember and kids can’t get rather rowdy. Here are some of the most epic bad parenting moments of all time…. 

 

 

Pole Parenting

 

 

Oh alright. Woa there. Let’s all stop and take a deep breathe and not let this image make us go completely crazy. We don’t really know what’s going on here, so perhaps the right thing to do would to not judge right away. Actually, maybe we should call child social services ASAP.

 

 

 

 

Magic Markers

 

 

So while most parents wouldn’t leave two of their very young children alone together, especially not with some permanent markers, these parents sure did, and this is the terrible, yet hilarious results. Well, at least they will always remember this moment!

 

 

Traumatic Tattoos

 

 

Most children don’t want, or even really know what a tattoo is until they reach their teenage years.  Sometimes, if parents are relaxed enough they will agree to one small one once they reach eighteen years old. And then in other very rare and strange cases, this happens.

 

 

 

 

Toss The Toddler

 

 

These young and adventurous parents seem to truly have the best intentions at heart, really. They just wanted to take their newborn baby along with him, and instead of carrying him and holding him tight, they figured that simply tossing him over the ledge would be a better idea.

 

 

Playful Parenting

 

 

Well, sometimes parenting can be tough. Especially when you want to be liked by your kids, it can be a struggle to tell them what to do and not to do, leaving parents feeling completely hopeless – just like this mother.

 

 

 

 

Savage Selfie

 

 

Well, with abs like these, we can totally understand why she would want to take a selfie. But perhaps she could have worried about her son before, it might have been a good idea. Especially since he’s playing around with her grooming kit. Could be dangerous, but to each their own, right?

 

 

Bad Booze

 

 

Even if this baby isn’t actually drinking this beer, this surely doesn’t look like a great situation, or a very good parent, to say the least. We hope they don’t grow up and have serious problems later on in life.

 

 

 

 

Someone Call The Lifeguard

 

 

Although there is no sight of parents in this photograph, we’re quite sure that young children didn’t have the money or the means to go out and buy this blow up doll themselves. Any explanation mom and dad?

 

 

Bubble Bath

 

 

Generally, bubble baths can be a seriously fun and relaxing experience. But when you leave your kind alone and unattended, things can get out of hand like this situation. You also could have explained to him that he doesn’t need ten bottles of soap, mom.

 

 

 

 

Luxurious Leashes

 

 

Generally, leashes are used for our dogs to make sure that they don’t get away, and are always specially designed so that they won’t choke the dog. Well, this plastic bag doesn’t seem too safe, and even if his son doesn’t manage to run away, he won’t exactly come back in one piece.

 

 

Dirty Discipline

 

 

Every parent has their own way of doing things, and a different way of punishing their children and teaching them a lesson. Forcing your child to listen to Rebbeca Black sing looks like pure torture.

 

 

 

 

Horrific Halloween

 

 

This dad is probably (hopefully) single, because we’re not sure what kind of mother would allow her little son to dress up like this for Halloween. Yikes! Call social services now!

 

 

Children Soup

 

 

While most people in the world like to enjoy a nice bowl of warm chicken soup, some others like children soup. What?! This is beyond bad parenting.

 

 

 

 

Bad Babysitter

 

 

Either these children were left alone for some reason, or had literally the worst babysitter in the entire world. Well parents, this is the price you’ve got to pay. Good luck cleaning up!

 

 

To Each Their Own

 

 

Ok mom, we get it! You love the bathing suit you’re trying on at Target! Great. But your son is suffering while you’re at it. Next time, get a babysitter to come alone, or at least, skip the selfie.

 

 

 

 

Precious Placement

 

 

While it can be very expensive to have a big enough home to have room for your entire family, placing your baby inside a cupboard drawer is really not a good solution. The sofa or even the kitchen table would have been a whole lot better.
