18 Pics Showing How Parents Will Be Parents No Matter What

year ago

A survey revealed that parents make over 2,000 Google searches during a newborn’s first year (an average of 6 per day) to seek expert advice about their baby. Parents, indeed, worry about their children, but their anxiety comes from a place of love. And they will do anything to protect their kids and make them happy — even if it means saying yes to being their little one’s guinea pig, finding ways to express their support, or coming to their child’s rescue at the first sign of trouble.

Bright Side found 18 aww-worthy photos that illustrate what a parent’s love truly means, and they might give you the urge to run into your folks’ arms and give them a big bear hug.

4. “She wanted pink, so pink it is!”
