It’s pretty easy for parents to embarrass their kids. Sometimes all you have to do is exist!
But these parents decided to go the extra mile and really remind their kids that they’re keeping an eye on them – or that they’ve been replaced by the family dog.
Would you ever do any of these 15 things to your kids?
1. Gone to the dogs
When you leave for college you’re probably worried that your parents will feel lonely and sad at the sight of your empty room.
Not these parents, who decided to turn their child’s room into the dog’s room!
2. Overprotective dad
This dad decided to take some extreme measures to make sure his child won’t drive carelessly. So he came up with this funny idea.
3. Putting a stop to forgetfulness
This kid will never forget anything at home ever again – or at least he won’t ask his parents to bring it to him at school.
We would have loved to see Ryan’s face when he got handed this bag.
4. Oh snap!
Ha! We had to laugh out loud at this one.
These parents have quite a sense of humor.
5. Always watching over you
Yikes – that’s some blanket!
We have the feeling that she doesn’t keep this in the bedroom anyway – but we bet she shows it to guests just because it’s so ridiculous.
Chances are nothing noteworthy happened on your first birthday anyway.
It certainly wasn’t more exciting than Ghostbusters II!
Can’t imagine how embarrassed their kids were when the parents posed like this for the photo.
But who could resist?
8. Playing dress-up
This will stop you from thinking you’re too cool.
9. Someone to watch over me
Way to be creepy, dad.
At least he can be easily cropped out.
10. Extending our patience
Definitely wash those extensions before you wear them again. You never quite know what’s been in a guy’s beard.
But we do think this guy is a hoot.
11. Stay sexy
Dad just wants you to know that if you think you’re sexy, you can thank your parents for it.
Where do you think you got it from, after all?
12. Playful photoshoot
Apparently, dad didn’t feel entirely comfortable seeing his little girl in her senior photos, so he took a bit of the appeal away by re-enacting them.
She’ll probably never strike this pose again.
13. Awkward carbs
Don’t say it with flowers, say it on a cake so that’s it’s embarrassing AND delicious.
14. Playing favorites
It seems pretty obvious that Rosie is the favorite child. And also that Rosie is the dog.
15. When your in-laws are punks
Always be nice to your sons and daughters-in-law. Otherwise punking them is bound to come back around and punk you right back!
Still, this is pretty funny. We just hope it was a clean sock.
Parents can be a real hoot sometimes. Of course, it may take a little time and reflection to find them funny.
But since it was children who posted these photos, we think the jokes went over just fine.
