Parenting is hard work. Luckily, experienced moms and dads are tweeting how they handle their everyday struggles to let the beginners know what it's like raising kids. Or at least amuse them while they're drowning in diapers. From taking your little one to the public toilet to making them put on pants, these hilariously funny parent tweets compiled by Bored Panda should definitely resonate with sleep-deprived parents of little kids who just want to catch a break. And if you don't have a kid, they might give you an understanding of what you'd be getting yourself into if you choose to become one.

In his book, The Ten Basic Principles of Good Parenting, Laurence Steinberg, PhD, provides a few guidelines based on 75 years of studies. Most parents do a pretty good job of raising kids, the psychologist said, but truly effective parenting means not just relying on natural instincts but on knowing what works and why as well.

For starters, children should never be hit -- not even a slap on a toddler's bottom, he told WebMD. "If your young child is headed into danger, into traffic, you can grab him and hold him, but you should under no circumstances hit him."

Steinberg's 10 principles aren't just for parents. They hold true for anyone who deal with children -- coach, teacher, babysitter, he says.

"What you do makes a difference," Steinberg said. "Your kids are watching you. Don't just react on the spur of the moment. Ask yourself, 'What do I want to accomplish, and is this likely to produce that result?'"

The hard part is that being an involved parent doesn't only take time, it also means rethinking and rearranging your priorities. "It frequently means sacrificing what you want to do for what your child needs to do. Be there mentally as well as physically."

However, being involved isn't doing a child's homework -- or reading it over or correcting it. "Homework is a tool for teachers to know whether the child is learning or not," Steinberg explained. "If you do the homework, you're not letting the teacher know what the child is learning."

What moms and dads need to remember is that parenting is a marathon, not a sprint. Adults work on their relationships with other adults, including friendships, marriage, and dating, and the same should apply for their relationship with their kids.

Someone please explain this to me. Why would you tell the children it is locked when you simply can tell them that you are not going?

I hope this was a stall inside another bathroom, but in my heart I know the door opened directly into Target's entry way.

....this is why women need to have the daddy in the picture, to take turns on the raising. But i understand now why many youths are adopting pets than having kids of their own.

Think positive. Being waken by the stench is slightly worse. Particularly if the stench combines with a warm sensation on your skin...

In our house the proper way was called 'the banana way'. The toddler is now 16 and I can guarantee she doesn't put her socks on 'the banana way' because it took too long to no benefit.

Why can't we eat pizza for breakfast? I don't understand. I'm 38 and had spicy tomato and bacon pasta for breakfast. I don't get this 'thing' that you're only allowed certain foods at certain times.
