Everybody learns from somebody, and that somebody is usually our parents. And as you can see from these adorable pictures, bears are absolutely no different!

Compiled by Bored Panda, the un-bear-ably cute list features momma bears showing their cubs all about the bear necessities of life. From catching fish, takings baths, and scaling trees, to crossing rivers, rock climbing, and swimming, these moms teach their kids how to look after themselves by showing them how to do things with their own bear hands (sorry). See for yourself in the pictures below, and don't forget to vote for the cutest!

It's very sweet but there's just too many polar bear ones in zoos. it's sad there's not many wild ones.
