Dear dads, what would we do without you? Who else would make us cringe over your punny jokes and who'd teach us to fix a flat tire? While we all appreciate their endeavors in making our life often less, and sometimes even more miserable, there’s a trait that makes dads very particular with their parenting tactics.

“My dad used to be so dramatic when he would teach me how to do stuff,” tweeted @PrinceHAK33M telling how his pa went into full-on cinema mode as if he was acting in a Hollywood drama. “This might happen, and you better be ready. The elements don’t care about you, son,” the dad said after he woke @PrinceHAK33M to change a tire in the rain.

The tweet immediately went viral with 238.3k likes and counting, and people found the drama king dads a totally relatable phenomenon. So below, we compiled a list with hilarious posts about drama dads, so scroll down, upvote your favorites, and share your stories in the comment section!

Psst! More hilarious posts with dads nailing fatherhood await right here.

To find out about navigating parenting in these crazily uncertain times, Bored Panda reached out to Natalie Maximets, a certified life transformation coach at “Online Divorce,” which is a professional divorce document preparation service with 20 years of market history.

“A father is not just a breadwinner for the family. He acts as a coach, teacher, friend, protector, and role model when raising a child,” Natalie Maximets, a certified life transformation coach at “Online Divorce” told Bored Panda.

She explained further: “You see, a child is like a sponge. They absorb everything that they see and hear. Hence, they tend to imitate their parents. For a son, a father is an example of how to interact with others. Therefore, they can adopt not only the character but also the manner of speech.”

Meanwhile, for a girl, her father is like a hero, Natalie argues. For that reason, the father’s role is incredibly important in the upbringing of children and the development of their personalities.

Natalie suggests listening to your children, “and you will notice that they use the exact words as their father. Why is a father like a teacher or coach to us? Remember who taught you how to ride a bike or skateboard. Or with which parent you did the craziest things in childhood. After all, who agreed to have tea with your dolls in the garden?”

On the other hand, “Mothers tend to be very protective of their children, while fathers are ready to give them freedom of action and imagination and take part in this themselves,” Natalie explained.

It turns out that the father’s participation influences psychological, intellectual, and gender-role development. “The children often look to their father for a sense of physical and emotional security. That is why it is important to live up to the reputation of a "protector" who will always come to help and teach them how to defend themselves. And we’re not talking about physical fights right now. Violence is bad. We are talking about emotional protection from the negative consequences of some situations,” a certified life coach explained.

“In most cases, fathers teach us not to dwell on failures and sometimes just laugh at ourselves when we screw up. For example, when a daughter does her first make-up in her life, she has a matryoshka-style instead of gorgeous make-up. The father will give an encouraging pat to his daughter and say, ‘Don't cry; you are always beautiful!’ Children want their fathers to be proud of them. It pushes them to self-improvement, cultivate external and internal strength, and reach new heights.”

That's just a useful skill. I actually got taught that by an instructor when I did an advanced driving course after passing the main test.

Welcome to my childhood. If you didn't start at 5 AM, the snow was too deep to drive through by 6:30 AM. It wasn't about getting it all, it was about making it passable, LOL!

Natalie argues that when fathers show support, interest, and tenderness towards their children, it significantly affects the social and cognitive development of the kids. “For example, daughters, looking at their fathers, choose their future partners. If the father is a strong, loving man who respects his beloved, the daughter will look for the same personality traits in men when she grows up. On the contrary, looking at their fathers, sons adopt a behavior model to treat women.”

Such a stupid way of looking at things. It's not like you can "train" or "strengthen" your ear-drums. You'll shoot your gun in self defence once in your life time and your ears will be fine, shoot 100 rounds a week for training without ear protection and you'll go deaf. Idiot.

In the last week of my armed service a soldier and one of my seargent friends and myself had our leave (a free evening) taken away, because we showed up ten minutes late for the lights out on Sunday evening. As the others went on leave that week, we had to write a 3 page essay with a civil and military example on why punctuality us important. At least we were not caught smoking weed, which was the reason for turning up late on Sunday.

Ice dams are very bad news. We had one over our kitchen window and as it melted inside the roof, water, lots of it, poured into the room, unstoppable.

Agree agree with the other posts. While the MF in this case might be technically entirely accurate description its still derogatory to both parents. And in comparison to some of the other posts, getting your lazy butt out of bed at a fairly reasonable hour to do some jobs that would improve the appearance of your home and by extension your neighbourhood as well as some basic maintenance of the home you live in and enjoy that ensures it stays a clean dry safe environment is hardly an evil over the top punishment. Sounds like someone thinks he should be praised for simply existing and not be expected to contribute to the household in any helpful way whatsoever
