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!
