It’s Time For The Funniest Parenting Tweets Of The Month, And Here Are The Best Ones This August (96 Pics)

Flying to the moon. Scaling Mt. Everest. Plugging a USB stick into your computer the right way in on the first try. All of these are huge challenges. However, they somewhat pale in comparison to one of the biggest challenges of all in life—being a good parent (getting enough sleep as one grants extra credits).

Each month, Bored Panda collects the funniest and wittiest posts on Twitter that any parent is bound to relate to. Raising your munchkins is an adventure in itself and parents can’t help but share their tales with others on social media. Check out the best parenting tweets this August, upvote the ones you loved the most, and let us know how your family’s handling the end of summer and the start of autumn and starting school again.

I also reached out to British comedy writer, musical comedian, and single mom Ariane Sherine for a chat about why parents share their challenges online, about the start of the new school year, as well as for some tips for new parents on handling the cornucopia of chaos and confusion. You can read Bored Panda’s interview with her below, Pandas.

PS—you’ll find our most recent parenting tweet lists right over here: July, June, and May.

Comedy writer and pop star in waiting, Ariane, told Bored Panda that parents sharing their experiences with others on social media helps them deal with the challenges that they face every day at home. What’s more, you can end up bonding with other parents over shared experiences. In the end, you feel less alone knowing that others have been in your shoes before.

“Sharing tough parenting situations helps you let off steam, alleviate frustration, and feel less isolated, especially when you’re a single parent, as I am,” she said. “Often other parents respond with their own anecdotes, so you feel less alone. And it’s always fun to share the hilarious things your kid says and does. I’ve tweeted so many of those that I made my daughter a book of the tweets for her 10th birthday, which she loved!”

Ariane also gave me some insights into what the quickly approaching new school year is shaping up to be like this time around for her daughter, Lily. According to Ariane, some schools are getting rid of Covid restrictions for students in the UK. This is vastly different from last year. The rules regarding contact groups, aka ‘bubbles,’ have been relaxed, however, schools in England will be inviting students to be tested for Covid.

“The new school year will be different for my daughter Lily, as there are no longer going to be class ‘bubbles’ and all Covid restrictions will be removed. It’s also her last year of primary school, which feels bittersweet. My baby is growing up!” Ariane opened up to Bored Panda about why this year is special for Lily.

What’s more, Ariane had some fabulous tips and tricks for those of you Pandas who are new to parenting. She shared with Bored Panda how she approaches parenting. Especially in tough situations.

“I always try to parent with love and understanding,” she said. “When my daughter’s upset, I give her a hug and stroke her hair, and that calms her down. It’s essential to remember that your child’s frustrations and tantrums are rarely personal. They’re just a natural part of growing up, and we need to allow them to express their feelings.”
