A very specific age that comes with a higher level of sass, more intriguing questions, and overall, just a bunch of madness.
Luckily for us, parents document these precious moments and share them with the world via Twitter.
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?
Pregnancy photoshoots have become something of a right of passage nowadays for expecting moms. Whether it's a homemade setup or the work of a professional photographer, couples love to capture their pregnancy on camera. Most couples can pull off something somewhat classy, beautiful, and even heartwarming, capturing the moments before their lives changed forever. But some couples get it so wrong and create something so awful that their pictures make you question their parenting abilities. These women and couples show off their pregnancy photoshoots, which can only be described as tacky, cringeworthy, and embarrassing.
When you grow up, you assume that everything your parents say is true. After all, adults know everything, right? All those rules you had imposed on you that might have seemed slightly weird at the time, you just took as a given. It's only once you grow up and discuss them with other adults that you realize how fricken weird they were! A tweet asking people who had strict parents what the "weirdest rule they had growing up" was, has revealed some hilarious and weird practices that will either make you feel like you're not alone or be grateful that your parents weren't THIS weird!
In recent years, the conversation surrounding toxic masculinity has sparked some critical debate. Society holds some pretty archaic views regarding the stigmas still attached to men who express their emotions or do things perceived as 'soft' or 'feminine.' Although awareness is increasing, there is still a lot more progress to be made. One father, Eric Owens, experienced this first-hand when he posted a photo collage on Facebook of him and his son lying in his arms over the years, including one when his son was a teenager. His post, which he captioned "18 years later and he still under my arm," went viral, with thousands of people commenting on it. Although many of the comments were positive, a good handful of them (mostly from men) was negative, stating how strange they thought it was for a father to show affection to a grown son— something only a mother should do. Someone posted it all on Tumblr, adding a rant about how this was a classic example of the toxic masculinity pervasive in society and people are agreeing. What do you think about it all?
Have kids, they said. It will be fun, they said. Sure, it's all fun and games until your kid smears poop all over the wall. Or they're screaming bloody murder because you cut their sandwich into a square shape instead of a triangle, you monster! But, through all the trials and tribulations that parenting brings, you've got to be able to laugh your frustrations away, and the parents of Twitter certainly do an excellent job at it. Here is this week's collection of funniest parenting Tweets for all parents (and non-parents alike) to relate hard to.
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.
Every parent can relate. Putting a baby down for a nap or even a good night's rest is no easy task. It's like they have a sensor or something and they know exactly when they are being put to bed. "Oh, about to hit the comfort of my bed. Let me sing you the song of babies everywhere!"
Parenting comes with its highs and lows. Of course, no one talks about the highs because, let's face it, bragging parents are possibly one of the worst types of people on the planet.

Every parent tries their best to raise their kids as upstanding, law-abiding, and morally correct members of society. And most parents do an OK, to good-ish job, even though it's one of the most challenging tasks in the world.
