Parenting is a mix of wonder, joy, angst, exhaustion, and the desire to tell others all about it. To be heard. Understood. Maybe that's why so many moms and dads turn to Twitter to describe their everyday highs and lows. It's a place where people listen (if you use the right hashtags, of course). But little do they know, we're interested in these stories as well!

Every month, Bored Panda collects the best parenting tweets, and September 2021 was no exception. From a funny idea for a toddler clothing line to a quick guide on how to keep your home clean, here are the ones that have caught our attention.

If you've fallen behind on the series, fire up our earlier collections: August, July, June.

As you can tell from some of these pictures, kids can get really creative with their shenanigans. So it's perfectly normal if your little ball of sunshine catches you off guard.

"When parents don't know how to respond, it's really valuable to take some time to give yourself chance to assess the situation rather than reacting in a rush or on impulse," Anna and Luciana, two moms from the UK and creators of the parenting blog In The Playroom, told Bored Panda. "Especially in difficult situations as sometimes spur of the moment rash reactions can make things worse."

Just like each child is unique, so is every parenting problem. There is plenty of advice on raising kids but no definitive guide, and you never really know if something that has worked for another family will apply to yours as well.

"We all make mistakes sometimes, so apologizing to your child and admitting that we don't always get it right, gives them a good example and helps to build trust in the relationship," Anna and Luciana said. 

And when everything is said and done, don't forget to tweet about it! "It's definitely important to talk to others in similar situations to get useful advice and to feel less alone," the mom duo added.

I did that too, or I'd make them really ugly. My Nintendo 3DS from when I was 7-8 has my family as Miis and a separate category of my family as their "mean" versions. Every time I was mad I'd make them uglier lol

I know this is a joke, but clothing like that really exists. There are some companies that make adapatable clothing that's intentionally designed to be worn any direction. It's generally for adults and older kids who have disabilities that make getting clothing on the "right" direction really difficult.

Eh, it's reality. She'll have bigger dreams when she gets older. I had a ~14yo tell me (seriously) that her life dream was to work at Subway. It was extra hilarious because it was something she could conceivably do in a few months or a year if she still wanted to. She didn't. She's now 20, in college, and studying for a career that doesn't involve sandwiches.

Some kids desperately need plans for the day. It can help them immensely with transitioning between activities. I'm sorry this parent had a bad experience, but don't take this advice as universally applicable.
