Parenting is a never-ending rollercoaster of ups, downs, loop de loops, and hilarious moments that you can’t help but share with the world once in a while. We know that some munchkins are driving their parents nuts even more than usual because of this whole end-of-the-world business we’ve got going on in 2020.

So Bored Panda has collected the funniest parenting tweets of the month to boost your spirits and to let you know that you’re not alone if you’re feeling overwhelmed or struggling, dear Pandas! Scroll down, upvote your fave tweets, and let us know what funny things have happened in your family life this month. Oh, and if you’re still hungry for more parenting tweets after this list, check out our earlier posts here: May, April, March, February, and January.

Bored Panda reached out to talk about pandemic parenting and the challenges and hilarious moments it leads to with comedian Ariane Sherine who has a daughter. She also gave us great tips on how to calm down your kids if they’re frightened of the coronavirus and what to do if your kids have way too much pent up energy and won’t give you a moment of rest. Read on for our interview with Ariane.

She has to step out of the stall, wait for the other woman to appear and smile at her. This is the first step to tell the world "I don't give a damn".

"My 9-year-old daughter came home to mine after a week away (I have shared custody with her dad). She immediately demanded her iPad. I said, ‘Lily, you’ve been away for a week and I haven’t yet had a hug or a kiss.’ She replied sassily, ‘Hmm, that sounds like a you problem, not a me problem!’” Ariane told us about the most hilarious pandemic moment she had with her daughter

Ariane told us that parenting has been more of a challenge recently because she’s had to homeschool her daughter who didn’t enjoy it much.

“She’s really hated homeschooling because she’s so bright and likes to be sat at the front of the class with her hand up, impressing the teacher! Not being able to do that has really demotivated and demoralized her, and it’s been sad to see. She can’t wait to go back to school in September.”

That's it! Your daughter is now more qualified than the Secretary of Education.

Those are just the lucky parents. The unlucky parents see it spilled over something that can't be cleaned easily and sometimes they find out it's a type of juice that can't be removed at all.

This is just as fun as when I took my kids to the horses. Youngest expected a horse race, but it was some kids riding ponies.

Parenting under regular circumstances can be tough but having to take care of a child who’s scared of the coronavirus is an added struggle. So Ariane told us what she with her daughter to help calm her down. “My daughter already had anxiety and Covid-19 really didn’t help. She was especially worried about my health when she found out overweight people were more at risk,” Ariane said.

“I managed to calm her down by finding stats to prove that mixed-race people are less at risk from Covid than even white people (both she and I are mixed race). I appreciate that this won’t help most people, but go with the science: explain to them that young people, and most people who are young enough to be parents, generally won’t be severely affected by coronavirus—so hopefully, that fact will quell children’s anxiety somewhat.”

But what about parents who feel completely overwhelmed, stressed-out, and knackered? What are they to do with their super-energetic munchkins who are wreaking havoc at home?

“I would ensure they keep active, both physically and mentally. Take them out to run around and burn off excess energy. I also have a board game, dice game, and card game cupboard, so we play UNO and Perudo and loads of other games my little one loves, and that keeps her occupied and content and staves off boredom.”

Corona Pirates is what my nephew calls it. We wear masks so the Corona Pirates don't recognize us and can't get us.

In an earlier interview, Bored Panda spoke about pandemic parenting with mom-of-two Samantha Taylor, who has her very own blog, Walking Outside in Slippers. She told us that the pandemic had completely changed things for her family because of the lockdown and having to spend more time at home with the kids.

“We've gained weight. My husband is exhausted, but there's never much downtime for us and certainly no alone time. We feel too guilty to even make a just-because Target run, so there are fewer outlets for our stress,” she said.

“Our kids seem to scream even louder and want a snack even more desperately when we jump on work calls. On the bright side, I feel like this situation has pushed us closer together as a family,” Samantha explained that it’s not all doom and gloom.

There is a proper time to speak to other people and early in the morning usually is not that time.

The best advice that the mom-of-two could give us was that parents should let go of too many expectations during the pandemic. “Prioritize what's most important: sleep, healthy food mixed in with the junk, kids using their brains in some way each day.”

She continued: “Let go of becoming the ‘perfect’ Pinterest parent during this time. If anyone claims to be perfect right now, they're not giving you the whole story. We're all struggling to some degree. I also love the idea of doing kind acts for others and involving our kids in those actions. It's harder to feel sorry for ourselves when we're focusing on making someone else's day a little brighter.” Now those are tips that should make at least some parenting struggles less painful and more fun.

They can eat pizza. They also can steal it from a plate.
