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!

As others have mentioned the crayon can probably be cleaned off the computer without much trouble. So, if it was my laptop I would clean the large surfaces, but I think I would keep the keyboard as it is! The child did such a good job of coloring the keys that to me it looks like an artist's palette of watercolor paints. I find it very pretty.

Oh wow! The child even put the laptop in two halves 😍 ! First I wondered why there is the red line on the space bar, while all other keys are nicely coloured within themselves. Then I saw the screen and that it seems to be overrun by a Creon as well. And because it's obvious there are two reds beside the touch pad.....voila =). It's six keys each side for example in the second row from the bottom. I also think it's BEAUTIFUL and so sweet and delicate, how she / he even painted the small double keys in dark blue 💕.
