Parenting can be tough, and in all the toughest jobs, it’s important to for our mums and dads to keep a healthy sense of humour. Also, us kids aren’t always easy, so can you blame them when they goof off and play with us from time-to-time?

Judging by these hilarious photos, these parents have clearly maintained their sense of humour by trolling their kids, and while we likely found our parents jokes lame in our younger years, let’s face it, looking back at them, they’re pretty funny and it’s more than likely we’ll end up doing the same.

Take a look at Bored Panda's list of parent trolls below, vote for your favourite, and don’t forget to send us your submissions of when your parents mess around with you!
