Parenting can be challenging, but it’s never boring. Any mom and dad to one of these cheeky little goofballs can tell you that life with children is full of surprises, from delightful to completely unexpected. You never know what your little one will utter next, so you always have to be prepared for, well, virtually anything. Especially immortalizing their precious wisdom by sharing it with everyone online.

As you can probably guess, it’s time for one of the most awaited features of the month — parenting tweets! This June, we at Bored Panda have wrapped up some of the funniest and wittiest things parents have said on Twitter into one truly entertaining collection. After all, every day with kids is an adventure filled with daily shenanigans and excellent one-liners we love to hear, and folks have plenty to say.

So sit back, buckle up, and get ready for a wild ride into the ups and downs of having these little munchkins. Continue scrolling and upvote your favorite entries as you go! And after you’re done, there’s plenty more to laugh at in our previous posts from May, April, and March.

My 18 yr old daughter thanked me for teaching her how to change a flat tyre when she had no phone reception to call roadside assist. Never stop passing on life lessons to your children because they believe they know everything.

These little daredevils that parents have to deal with from dusk till dawn bring plenty of wonders that simply need to be shared with the whole world. From honest confessions to hilarious conversations and jokes, moms and dads want to make everyone laugh by sharing stories that tell the universal truth of life with kids. After all, raising a human being from scratch is definitely amusing. And quite a challenge too. The never-ending questions, original ideas, tantrums, and what about the full-on meltdowns? No wonder why the second parents get some peace, they want to talk about their highly demanding yet equally rewarding journey and find some comfort along the way.

To learn more about navigating the parenting minefield and how the joy the little ones bring helps parents persevere, we reached out to Jade Lloyd, creator of a colorful family and lifestyle blog called The Parenting Jungle. The multi-award nominated blogger said it’s important to talk about how demanding parenting is. "Because it is hard," she told Bored Panda. "Rubik’s-cube-level hard."

The beauty of todays smart TVs is that you can block all but four channels - leaving only educational channels. Then see if they roll their eye's and say "oK mOm, wHaTeVeR".

"You are handed a baby by the nurse and hit the ground running/nappy changing. There is no transition from an adult who can’t follow Pot Noodle instructions to becoming a parent. Having the responsibility for a small human's emotional, social, and physical development, safety, discipline, and education...," she said, adding that the list of what parents have to think of daily is seemingly endless. "Routine, don’t forget to have a good routine!"

Daily routines give structure to our days and help our family life run smoothly. "We all thrive on predictability and routine," Jeanette Sawyer Cohen, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and child development consultant told WebMD. "Knowing what to expect helps us feel safe and secure."

Steering your family life towards a healthier schedule includes focusing more on a few crucial moments of everyday life, like bedtime. We’ve long heard about the benefits sleeping gives to our physical and mental well-being, so if we want kids to reach the ideal bedtime, we should start by slowly getting them to bed 10 minutes earlier each night. While younger children usually achieve the goal in no time, older kids may be more likely to cooperate if we stick to an earlier bedtime ourselves.

Another crucial part of our days is mealtimes. Cohen suggested finding a way to label our dinner routines, even if they change day by day. For example, if the little ones need to eat dinner earlier than usual, those days can be "sandwich days." If a parent is working late, "babysitter days." The clinical psychologist explained that "naming these different experiences makes the variety feel more routine."

However, maintaining a steady schedule is a challenge. After all, these little bundles of joy add plenty of hilarious situations into our daily routines. Jade pointed out that parents also face daunting tasks such as answering questions like, "'Why can’t I see my eyes?' whilst trying desperately to get them to put on shoes — all whilst juggling enormous sleep deficits and trying to figure out TikTok." Still, the blogger added she is driven by love, purpose, and caffeine.

Jade revealed that before having children, she had no clue that it was possible to destroy a whole house with porridge and a permanent marker. "I think to make it through the first 18 (to 30, as now they never leave home) years of your child(ren’s) life, you need to have a good sense of humor! Oh, and develop an acceptance of toilet jokes," she told us.

"Again, maybe tiredness and self-preservation of sanity come into it, but the things (especially small) children do, their comments, questions, and complaints are hilarious. The hardest thing is being fake stern when your child does something they know is wrong but justify it with something like, 'I wanted to know what the dog would taste like if I licked it.'"

Each child is unique, and they often prove it by coming up with brilliant and humorous ideas that immediately put a smile on their parents’ faces. "Children have no social filter and are wonderfully curious," Jade explained. "They see the world in a completely different way. Everything is a question, adventure, or story. The WHY questions drive parents doolally, but I think as adults we stop asking so much because our brains are too busy with work, grocery shopping, bills, and keeping down Cholesterol."

If there’s one widely accepted truth, it’s that we were more creative and honest as children. When asked whether we can somehow rejuvenate these qualities, Jade told us that creativity isn’t magic. "It’s a skill that children cultivate more than adults, I think. I don’t have time to make rock pets and give them each a name, but my four-year-old does, and that’s awesome."

As much as these munchkins are clever, they can also come up with questions and ideas that catch their parents off guard. But however odd their words may seem to us, you should avoid mocking your kids and laughing at them. "I make sure to be playful and kind-laugh with my children and encourage them to laugh when they say something funny too," Jade added. "Create a connection. Be careful to say things like 'You are so funny!' instead of 'That is silly,' as words have weight. It is important to boost a child’s confidence and reinforce that humor and joy."

Any mom and dad out there want what’s best for their kids. This usually means working on boundaries and teaching them what’s right and wrong. After all, there’s a difference between a lighthearted joke and one that’s aimed to hurt a person’s feelings. "Sometimes they are doing something funny that is not safe or saying something funny that is not kind or making a joke at the expense of someone else. Then I think parents need to set boundaries for themselves and their children. Sometimes you will need to carefully explain why a joke or situation isn’t funny," she added.

But that doesn’t mean that bending over backward to raise their little ones to be kind human beings should hold them back from having a great time too. Jade told us that when your child comes up with shenanigans that are funny and harmless, laugh with your child. "Enjoy them. My partner told me the other day to stop picking up the phone to film it and just enjoy the moment, which is good advice in today’s social media-heavy world," she concluded.

My parents forbade us to observe mother's day and father's day, saying that the whole concept was made up by Madison Avenue to help retailers overcome the bad months between christmases. Instead, they taught us by example that a spontaneous "I love you" was a better gift than all the candy and roses in the world. And it was appreciated on all days, not just once a year.
