Mother Calls Son 'Misogynistic' For His Fleeting Moment Of Disappointment After His Fourth Daughter's Birth

In today's "Am I The A$$hole?" thread, the OP is a wholesome dad questioning if he is misogynistic for being momentarily disappointed after his fourth daughter was born. However, it was a moment that passed very quickly, and he was ecstatic about his newborn right after. His wife asked him why he looked slightly disappointed after, and he admitted that he was disappointed for a second, but was so grateful for their baby girl. His mom told him she was disappointed in him for this moment of 'misogyny.' I personally can't say that I agree with the mom. After three daughters, I understand why he would be hoping for a son, and he still loves his fourth daughter wholeheartedly. We're humans, and sometimes we have fleeting emotions. That's okay. What do you think? Scroll down for more context.

Father Cuts Off Young Daughter's Hair Because She Doesn't 'Maintain It' Properly

Parenting is one of the most challenging jobs in the world, especially when you're a single parent. Parents don't always get it right; in fact, most of the time, they screw up. But the sign of a good parent is one who can admit their mistakes and apologize to their kids when they get it wrong. One dad posted on Reddit, wanting to know how badly he had f*cked up when he cut his daughter's hair. He explained that he is a single parent and struggles to maintain his seven-year-old daughter's hair, which she refuses to take any responsibility for herself. After many discussions with her, he finally cut her hair, which she found very distressing. His mother and sister told him that it was the wrong move, but he is unsure. Redditors gave mixed responses, with many telling him that his reasoning was fair, but the way he carried it out wasn't OK. Below is his account; scroll through and tell us what you think. Is this bad parenting, or were his actions justified?

I've warned her over the last year that if she doesn't start brushing her hair at least twice a day, we're getting it cut shorte

Dad Photoshops Baby Into Dangerous Situations To Horrify Mom

Dads often get a bad rep when it comes to parental responsibilities, and if this guy is anything to go off, we have no idea why. Not! Kenny Deuss from Belgium has taken parenting humor to a whole new level by photoshopping his baby daughter into various dangerous situations and sending them to the baby's mom whenever she checks in on them. The first time nearly gave her a heart attack, and we're not surprised. From browsing a baby gun website to sitting on cliff edges, to being trapped in a washing machine, Kenny certainly knows how to make a picture raise some eyebrows. Thankfully since then, she has gotten used to this odd parenting style and even looks forward to them. But she sure must have a lot of patience for Kenny and his antics. Check out some of his hilarious photoshop works of art below, and you can visit his Instagram page for more of his masterpieces.

Tweets From Parents Who Are So Over Parenting

Parenting isn't the easiest gig in the world— any parent will attest to that. But somehow, just as you thought you didn't have any more patience left for your kids and they'd driven you crazier than you thought possible, they do something super cute that makes you fall in love all over again. But let's be honest, the majority of the time, they're just little sh*ts who make you lose your mind. So for those parents who are clearly hanging on by a thread, or even those who seem to have it together but are secretly losing their minds, these funny parenting tweets are for you. Hopefully, they'll make you feel less alone in the struggles of parenting and make you realize that every single child is also a little terror sometimes, not just yours.

Man Refuses To Take Off Work To Watch His Son, Argues It's His Wife's Job

Every couple with children lands on some kind of system to share the labor. Sometimes people switch or days, or months, or they agree to have one person take on the housework while the other focuses on supporting the family financially. There is no perfect recipe for a happy family or marriage, but the important thing is that everyone feels valued and not like they're being taken for granted. There's not a single thing wrong with taking on the role of a stay-at-home mom, but it is wrong to be pushed into that position and then resented by your partner for 'having it easier,' as if managing a household is not a 24/7 occupation.

Like we said, find the balance that works for you, but make sure all parties understand why it's 'balanced.'

It's Pretty Clear That Kids Should Be In Charge Of Naming Everything

Anyone who has kids will relate to learning a whole different language when it comes to the names kids give things. Children see the world from a fresh, pure perspective that adults just don't have, which means they will call something in whatever way makes sense for them. Their creativity knows no bounds, and these hilarious tweets from parents about the names their kids have given things prove it. Why shouldn't deodorant be called armpit makeup? Why shouldn't badminton rackets be called ball trampolines? Kids are descriptive beings, and they think in a way that just makes sense. Do your kids have any hilarious names for everyday objects?

Dumbest Things People Posted In Parenting Facebook Groups

Just because you have a baby doesn't mean you know what you're doing when it comes to parenting. It's just a process of trial and error, and honestly, most parents don't have a clue. Some ask their parents for help; others ask friends and some post on Facebook groups. All are valuable ways to learn new information, but sometimes the questions are so ridiculous that it makes you wonder if there should be a common-sense test to determine whether or not you are fit to have a baby. If there was, we can't imagine these parents would pass. Check out these insane questions parents posted in Facebook groups.

Parents Recall The Creepy And Disturbing Things Their Kids Have Done

Kids can be little angels, but they can also be total sh*ts. Any parent can attest that sometimes kids misbehave to the point where they briefly consider disowning them, even though deep down, they adore them. But when your kid does something weird, creepy, or disturbing, the reasons for wanting to disown them can be on a whole new level. Whether it's making comments that suggest they lived a past life, seeing them sleepwalk into dangerous situations, or seeing a weirdly violent side to them, these parents recall the bizarre things their kids did that made them rethink the whole parenting thing.

It makes your hair stand up when you get woke from a deep sleep. I have also woken up in the middle of the night to see him standing right next to my bed. Sometimes just facing the wall or staring at me. He is always "sleep walking" and I can escort him back to bed. Trouble is, I never know how long he has been up. He never remembers any of it

Controlling Grandma Bleaches Granddaughter's Hair Without Asking Her Mom

Children like to express themselves in different ways. Some like to wear funky clothes or take drama classes, and some like to temporarily dye their hair funky colors. There really isn't much harm in using temporary dye on a child. There are very safe ones that come out in 5-10 washes, hence the term 'temporary.' So if there isn't much risk, and it makes your child happy, what's the big deal? Bleach, on the other hand, is not something to be messed around with.
