Listen, parenting is hard, right? And I have to say, trying to keep up with the ever-updated “cool” thing – social media, slang, whatever it is today – is just sometimes too much to ask.

Of course, if you don’t keep up, you run the risk of making the kinds of mistakes these 11 parents made – and, thanks to the modern world as well, there’s always a record of your gaffs.


11. She’s trying, and isn’t that all that matters?

I say yes, it definitely counts.

10. Okay but this is really so cute.

Also, what are poppers?

9. I hope she also has a sense of humor.

Since they’re her kids, she probably does.

8. It’s so hard to wait an entire year for more fun.

But the payoff is oh-so worth it.

7. I’m dying to know who the culprit might be!

Updates, please, Twitter.

6. I definitely disagree that no one wants to see this.

It’s the best content I’ve seen today, personally.

5. Don’t worry about it – is she right?

And if so you’d better make it right, child.

4. That last text just made my day.

This dad is everyone’s dad.

3. Art is in the eye of the beholder.

This just cracked me the heck up.

2. I feel like this is pretty normal.

Also, these posts make me feel old.

1. I want to be part of this family.

I mean, my family is fine, but…

I’m dying, but I am also commiserating.

A brave new world, it is!
