There can never be too many parenting tips for any types of parents, fresh or seasoned because you're raising a damn human being after all. And with a task requiring so much responsibility, no advice is better learned than through a process of tedious trial and error. While everybody tries to convince you that being a parent is one of life's most beautiful and rewarding journeys and nothing can replicate the joy of creating and nurturing a new life and watching it blossom, the bitter truth is that dealing with crazy kids on a daily basis is not all sunshine and rainbows.

There are guaranteed to be occasions when your little angel's halo slips, to reveal the spawn of Satan within. This list of parenting memes and funny fails while trying to raise a decent human being, compiled by Bored Panda, will have parents nodding their heads with a wry sympathy, as the moments in these funny photos sum up what kind of epic fails often come with being a parent. Scroll down below to check the funny kids and distraught parents out for yourself, and don't forget to vote for your faves!

So, break your kids of asking why. Everybody does it, with the old adage, "because I said so!" So now we have a whole population of adults who never ask why there is so much war, poverty, greed and corruption in the world, but go along with it, because they were taught as children to accept the answer of the authority figure: "because we say so!" It should be a source of pride for parents to admit how many times their children ask why. And they should attempt to give them answers as often as possible, answers besides "because I said so." Instead, they avoid actually conversing with their children.

My niece was visiting for the week and the "why's" were killing me, I laminated 20 index cards with the word "why" on them, if she wanted to say the word why she had to give me a card, when she ran out of cards she wasn't allowed to ask why any more that day. She loved the game and I loved the peace!

Ok I have a serious question and I don't want to sound snotty. Why do parents let their children do this? If I hung onto a cart while my mom was trying to shop she would have picked my butt up hauled me either to the car or the nearest bathroom and swatted my butt... also...I never would have done this because my parents would have never allowed it. I'm confused as to how this happens?
