The Best/Worst of #ParentingFail On Instagram

I don’t mean to start up the Mommy Wars again.

I know we’re all supposed to ‘lean in’ and help each other out. Y’know, put the Judge Judy type attitude off to the side.

But, well, I couldn’t leave this Instagram hashtag alone.

    I don't know if this is fair to call a #parentingfail, I think it's kind of genius.

    Fearless
    Sometimes I think parents are afraid because kids are fearless. They balance it out. If you have fearless parents and fearless kids together, that can be a Darwin Award winning combination.

    Apparently strollers are more difficult to load than carseats?

    Picture Day
    Maybe nobody told dad it was picture day? Think this one is bad, check out 16 shirts that shouldn't be in the kids' section. Some of those are WORSE!

    LOL
    Totally guilty of seeing my kids crash, laughing, pulling out the phone, and taking a picture all before I reach out to help. Oh, it's good to be bad.

    I don't know why you'd put a sticker on your car anymore. I get them on your binders, or lockers, or skis, but a $20k, $30k, $40k vehicle isn't getting a sticker in my house. And certainly not a Playboy one on my minivan.

    I've mentioned it before, and it's worth repeating: things change after you have kids. You can't roll like you used to. Get a babysitter, wait til it's out on Netflix. Just stop bringing kids to movies they don't need to see.

    Coaster
    They have age/height restrictions on roller coasters for a reason. That's usually because they are not 2 yr old friendly.

    Forget the stroller? Car seat too heavy? Just drag the kid.

    I get that kids climb and want to play with everything. Sometimes that's not a good idea.

    This Bud's For You
    I think every single parent has taken this photo. Just some of us know better than to pop it on Instagram.

    Should we cut them some slack that perhaps, in 1994, the dangers of riding quads like this wasn't fully known?

    You're going to have enough trouble with them as teenagers, why would you give a preschooler any ideas?!

    Just Like Mom?
    We'll end it with a shot from the account for the hashtag. Why would anyone even pretend to do this to their daughter?
