Bringing new life into the world is a privilege. Beautiful, innocent young children are put into our care – as if having them has turned us into responsible adults. Well, that’s just not the case. Most parents struggle at some point – and the ones who find it easy are probably doing it wrong. We’ve put together 18 incredible parenting fails, from the darkest channels of the internet for you to peruse. They may not have the worst parenting skills, but they’re pretty damn close. From twerking with toddlers to turning babies into ‘gator feed, this list covers the lot.
Hot Pocket Baby
We all know what it’s like – you’re hungry in the middle of the night so you sneak into the kitchen and throw some leftovers in the microwave. We’d like to believe whoever did this was too tired to turn on the lights, and in a fit of exhaustion stuffed their baby in the microwave.
Actually, let’s just hope this was a funny photo-op, and not the massive parenting malfunction that it appears to be.
The Family Business
Warning: this will leave you disturbed. If it doesn’t, you should be worried. Some parents put pressure on their kids from a young age to study hard, score high on standardised tests and aim for a good college. Other parents – not so much. Who knows what they were thinking when they dressed this baby up in neon fishnets and creepy underwear.
There are so many questions to be answered in this photograph. Why the plug socket? Why the lamp? Why dress a baby up as a stripper? Where the hell did they get those baby stripper clothes? Let’s hope these questions stay unanswered. Forever.
Perfect Baby Shower Gift
This would be the perfect gift for the parent who’s too damn lazy to get up and feed their baby. Instead of preparing a baby bottle or breastfeeding, pour some juice into a Crib Dribbler and let the baby use it like a buffet.
The best case scenario, is a baby who doesn’t need you for anything, ever. The worst case scenario is a baby sleeping in a pool of cold milk. Nice.
Sarah Burge, British queen of cosmetic surgery – also known as the “human Barbie”, got her little princess the ultimate birthday gift. At the ripe old age of seven, her daughter was presented with a voucher for $9000 worth of breast implants. To be cashed in 11 years, of course.
Don’t worry, that’s not all she got! Darling Poppy and her friends were also treated with manicures, pedicures, fake tattoos, fake champagne and a designer cake on a luxury party bus. Living the inappropriately high life.
