19 Pics Proving a Parent’s Love Can Go Above and Beyond the Call of Duty

Friends and acquaintances may come and go, but one thing is for sure, our parents will always be ours, no matter the circumstances. We may not notice it right away, but our mothers and fathers truly love us in their own way. These actions, no matter how small, are proof that they will always be there for us.

Bright Side scoured the Internet to remind you that our moms and dads are the best people we can always lean on.

1. “My daughter has an irrational fear of hair clips, but she said she wouldn’t be scared if I did it first. So here we are.”
