103 Parents Having A Worse Day Than You

Let’s all just give a big round of applause to all parents who dedicated their 18 years (or rather, their whole lives) to professionally taming a little daredevil, and often not one but two or three, or more. With bloodshot eyes and not much fuel left in their tank, moms, dads and caregivers keep surprising us all with their sheer level of resilience, straight face, and even a smile.

Because raising kids is not for the faint-hearted. So in order to remind us of that, Bored Panda compiled a collection of posts where kids made their parents’ day really miserable.

So that your coffee stain, lost keys and really important email sent out to the wrong address won’t feel so bad!
