18 Unbelievable Parenting Fails That Will Make You Feel Better About Yourself

No Phones At The Dinner Table

Everyone gets mad about the people they love spending too much time on their phone and not enough time in the moment. We usually have a laugh and shake it off – and most of us have the foresight not to be insensitive at big moments. Apparently not the case with this new Mom.

Let’s hope she was trying to call the father of the baby, or her own mother to tell them the good news. Who are we kidding? It was probably a post-birth selfie. It’s 2015. The future is now.

Eyes On The Road

We all know what it’s like to have our hands full. Say you decide not to take a trolley at the supermarket and end up buying more than you expected. It’s hard enough opening the trunk with your hands full of shopping bags, let alone with a baby in tow. So this is acceptable, right?

Wrong. This lady was so busy – so distracted – that she put her baby down in the middle of the road. This is one of the worst parenting fails ever documented.

He Fought The Law And The Law Won

Kids are always wandering off and giving their parents mini heart attacks. The solution? Handcuff your child to your shopping cart. In some ways, this seems kinda smart. In all other ways, it’s cruel, weird and humiliating. Let’s see if this kid grows up to be a cop.

Thug Life

Where to begin? Unpacking all the wrong in this photograph would take hours. First, mixing babies with guns. You don’t need to be a prosecution lawyer to understand why that’s a bad idea. Second, actually photographing your baby playing with said guns.

Let’s just hope they’re toys. Really, really, really hyperrealistic toys. Because that would be much better – right? At least he looks kind of happy.
