20+ Photos Showing It Takes Nerves of Steel to Be a Parent

Small children don’t just bring happiness and fun, but also a lot of trouble. They might just burst into tears in public because you don’t want to buy them a toy, let them walk on fresh concrete, or allow them to draw on the walls with a marker. And they can drive their parents crazy with the things they do. But the parents, who have nerves of steel, seem to have a positive attitude toward these problems.

We at Bright Side honestly believe that this is the right mindset, because children usually do something wrong only when they are trying to learn more about the world around them. Here are 20+ things children did that’ll surely improve your mood.

“My son refused to drink his milk from a cup.”

“So my nephew did this.”

She’s crying because she can’t pet the “kitty” at the zoo.

Honestly, at what age does self-preservation actually kick in?

This is what a real father looks like, not those cowards that take their children home after an hour.

“This is the face she gives me when I tell her to stop eating mud and put her shoes back on.”

“Can I help you?”

“Watching TV with a 2-year-old is so relaxing...” said no parent ever!

She’s currently pissed that it’s called the “Children’s Museum” and not the Dinosaur Museum.

“How my son deals with Mondays...”

That time my son wanted to go through the drive-thru

“Just pick him up!”

“R.I.P, my 140hz monitor”

“My 2-year-old confronted the greatest disappointment of her entire life, thus far, yesterday.”

“Left unsupervised for 3 minutes”

“My nephew asked for a dollar, but didn’t say he wanted to make a wish...”

Less than 5 minutes ago, I offered this kid a pillow. She threw it at me because she “does NOT want to lie down...”

“My 5-year-old son decided to chew on the blinds in his bedroom.”

“Saw this specimen at a local grocery store”

“My nephew ate a quarter.”

“My kid made his Easy Mac without water. We had to leave the house for hours thanks to the smell.”

“My 8-year-old opens the bathroom cabinets every time he goes to the bathroom, because otherwise, something is going to jump out and get him.”

Have your children ever done something that led to a lot of trouble for you?
