Weekend Wit: 9 Ways To Avoid Parenting
Any parent will tell you that raising kids is a tough gig, but there are some people out there in cyberspace who don’t appear to take it very seriously. When kids are still at the stage when they don’t need a mobile phone to stay in contact, parenting is actually pretty much common sense.
However, we all know that some people’s version of common sense can be a little skewed – just check out some of the parenting skills adopted by some brainiacs out there. So, you’ve got to ask the question: How on earth can these parents really get it so wrong? Are they exceptionally over-tired? Are they lacking in the IQ department? Or should some people just resort back to their mobile phones and technology in search of an appropriate app to do it all for them?
Sorry, maybe I’m being a little too harsh. I suppose if anything, we do need people like this – they make the rest of us parents feel pretty good about ourselves. Yes, even on a bad parenting day. So on that note, ladies, here is 9 ways to avoid parenting.
When did a standard motorcycle become an 8 seater vehicle? I wonder which genius thought of that child’s bucket seat, too? Quite an invention!
They say children mimic what they are exposed to, but this little girl clearly looks a little distressed at the future in front of her.
Has parenting become such a chore that every waking moment – including a simple trip to the store – needs a screen? Hmm… Perhaps.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I sincerely hope the hospital booked this lady in for some parenting classes prior to discharge – something tells me neglect could be an issue in this child’s future.
Just because an item covers a child’s head does not make it a suitable helmet!
Shouldn’t it be obvious that some words should NEVER be written on a little girls top! Why is there even a market for this?
I wonder if this dotting Dad simply forgot about the precious cargo in his back pack? Or does he think this is a safe option should the train derail, and is ACTUALLY aware of the child behind him?
The thing about this pic is that these women look quite normal. These two little kids in the cage, however, may not have that opportunity in their future.
Just remember, I did say something about common sense being skewed, didn’t I?
