10 Ridiculously Epic Parenting FAILS: Which Is the Worst?

FAIL stamp

FAIL!

Humans do some pretty ridiculous things. They range from silly, to senseless, to totally and utterly stupid. And it just makes it way worse when there are innocent bystanders (the kids)  being dragged down with them.

These days stupid missteps are referred to as a ‘FAIL’. The Urban Dictionary defines it as “either an interjection used when one disapproves of something, or a verb meaning approximately the same thing as the slang form of suck.” And these ten ridiculous parenting FAILS, we disapprove of ‘em and they totally and epically suck.

Check out this list of 10 epic parenting FAILS here.

    When the lure of the strip club beckons, well it's hard to say no…apparently. A couple in Louisville, Kentucky left their baby in the car, at about 11pm at night, while they went to a strip club. It also happened to be about 91 degrees at the time, so double that endangerment.

    Imagine this scenario. You're at your local Taco Bell fixin' to get your Burrito Supreme on when you spot a woman with a newborn baby. You comment that their baby is cute. Then, she offers to sell you said baby. Yeah, that's a good time to call the cops. "She basically handed the child to the customer, saying he's three days old, this is his name, and would you like to buy him for $500," explained the police Sergeant in charge of the case.

He left them alone at home and armed them with a hunting knife, hatchet and a baseball bat just in case they had to defend themselves. The kids? They were totally freaked out, went to the neighbors who ended up calling the cops. Now Dad will have to defend himself…in jail.

    While one woman tried to sell her baby to a random stranger at Taco Bell, a German woman was far more thoughtful about the process, she tried to sell her child to the highest bidder on eBay. The ad read, "Baby … Offer my nearly new baby for sale because it cries too much. Male, 70 cm long." But she later said it was just a joke and she "just wanted to see if someone would make an offer."

    If you have five kids, eventually you'll misplace one of them. And that's just what happened to an Israeli couple who were headed to Europe on vacation. They managed to remember their duty-free purchases, their 18 suitcases and four of their kids, but their 3-year-old daughter? They forgot her. The toddler was found wandering around, alone, at the airport. The parents were informed of their forgetfulness forty minutes into the flight. But there was a happy ending, the family was reunited in Paris when the airline put their daughter along with an escort on the next flight.

    We all use our babies stroller's to stow some of our own personal items; to carry our Non-fat Chai Lattes, to transport that bottle of wine we picked up on the way home, or to lug our lunches. But one mom in upstate New York , she took liberties with the privilege. She used her baby's stroller to carry a couple of knives, a box cutter and a sawed off shotgun.

  • Couple Names Their Child Adolf Hitler 10 of 10
    Couple Names Their Child Adolf Hitler
    Much care generally goes into the decision on what to name your child. You don't want a name that will get them teased on the playground, you don't want a name that is really hard to pronounce, and you don't want a name that honors one of the most notorious villains in world history. But apparently a New Jersey couple didn't get the memo. They opted to name their baby Adolf Hitler.
