Parenting is not for the faint of heart, and some days are just way harder than others.

You’re tired, you’re stressed at work, your toddler is on overdrive, your teenager has slammed her third door – it can be anything, or nothing much at all, but you can end up feeling like you have no idea what you’re doing.

These 18 parents are having a rough time right now, so let’s all surround them with virtual support and glasses of wine.

18. “Don’t be a butthead” is a common refrain in our house.

17. Or even just something that RESEMBLES an onion.

16. It’s like going into battle without armor.

15. He’s just practicing for college.

14. We ARE being quiet!

13. Do as I say, not as I do.

12. Six minutes is what you have earned with your foolishness.

11. Based on my own childhood, this is true.

10. Loud, constant observations.

9. Asking the truly hard questions.

8. That’s the one who will take care of you when you’re old.

7. I think you know the answer to that, even if you don’t want to.

6. And that’s how they found out steam could come out of mommy’s ears.

5. They’ll keep until it comes back around.

4. Real talk from real parents.

3. The child version of “I’m starting a diet tomorrow.”

2. Never mind…

1. They realize we can smell it, right?

I hope people are there to fist-bump me the next time I feel like it’s just never gonna be bedtime.

What’s your favorite way to reset when you’re having one of those days?
