A Good Sign It's Time to Reevaluate Your Priorities as a Parent (PHOTO)

I did WHAT to my children?!

There comes a time in any parent’s life when it’s prudent to step back and reevaluate your priorities.

Are you spending too much time online on Facebook and not enough offline with the actual face of your offspring? Has the priority of family dinners fallen by the wayside? Are you less likely to get down on the floor and play with your children because you’re too tired or busy or disinterested?

Or perhaps your child has swallowed the matches you use to light your cigarettes and you think the biggest problem with that is now you have nothing with which to light your cigarette.

If the latter is the case, then perhaps you need some help. The woman in the vintage cigarette advertisement below certainly needs some help, although not quite how you’d expect she might.

Take a look:

There’s just so much that’s wrong with this advertisement
