27 People Who Are Way Worse At Parenting Than You

These "parents" will make you feel like a freaking Huxtable.

1. This mom desperate for a smoking buddy.

If you're thinking, Aw, but it's not even lit! go ahead and give yourself a "fail" too.

2. This partying pregnant lady.

Relax, people. I'm sure she's taking her prenatal vitamins.

3. This nervous new dad.

4. These a-holes.

Let's hope they're dyslexics and really wanted to name their kid "Alan."

5. Kelli.

6. This Dad of the Year.

7. This mom...

8. ...and this dad who really need to re-read their car seat's instruction manual.

The tl/dr of it: "Don't do that."

9. These parents who don't even bother with a car seat.

10. This moron.

11. This guy who treats his kid like a rag doll...

12. ...and this woman who is almost certainly his wife.

13. This mom on "Bring Your Kids to Work Day."

14. This schmo who is guaranteed to be getting a whole lot of side-eye at the burrito joint.

15. This kid's Maxim-subscribing dad...

16. ...and this joker who makes the Maxim dad look good.

17. Ol' sideburns.

Turn around and grab the hammer, gorgeous.

18. This oblivious mom...

19. This oblivious dad...

20. And this oblivious couple.

It's a hat trick of obliviousness!

21. This guy who really needs to put down the phone and check on his kid.

22. This know-it-all who told his son riding a bike is easy.


The fact his kid is wearing a helmet actually makes him the best parent on the list.

23. This classy chap.

I think it's fair to say that when you have kids, you need to stop wearing T-shirts like this. Actually, you shouldn't wear them before kids, but that's beside the point.

24. Whoever thought this was OK.

25. This traumatized kid's parents.

So many questions. None I want answers to.

26. This soft-headed dad and his equally soft-headed wife.

27. And lastly, this basket case.

Now don't you feel a whole lot better about yourself as a parent?
