If you have kids, you know the many delights and headaches of parenthood. Sometimes the kids might be adorable angels descended from heavens, but more often you'd like to scream on them for being little brats. Everybody knows that screaming and anger doesn't solve any problems, so leaving a passive-aggressive, yet funny message scolding or instructing your dinky devil might be the best solution.

From hilarious texts from mom with directives for that day's WiFi password to funny letters from dads and the greatest parenting memes, this list has it all. Keep on scrolling to take a look at a list of hilarious notes that parents left for their kids compiled by Bored Panda; we are sure that's parenting done right! They're bound to make you laugh, or at least put a smile on your face! Feel free to add your own funny notes or parent memes as well.

I had knee surgery and my MIL brought me a pot of fake flowers (I have a black thumb) that no one could tell were fake! When I got back to work, I was in charge of my own lab, which for obvious reasons no live plants. So I took that to work, so it would be a little less sterile. But then I was asked everyday, at least once, how they grow in the lab and go to smell them before realizing it was fake. That was 14 yrs ago, and they are looking pretty good. They need a good dusting, but otherwise you still wouldn't know.

Actually, I do that all the time! I keep forgetting to check my phone for notes and reminders, but if I stick a post-it to the back of my phone it bugs me just enough to not be forgotten ;) Works brilliantly for tasks that have no specific time requirement.

you always hear people say to watch the language around the kids but becoming a parent makes it more necessary to curse than ever.

I love this so much because the wife understands the importance of sending the actual letter as well as the translation, and the husband still writes letters to his daughter. ( and even makes things for her. )
