18 Hilarious Times Fathers Had Absolutely No Idea How To Dad

Fathers get a pretty bad rap for their infamously bad “dad jokes.”

While their humor makes us cringe from embarrassment, their judgement when they’re just trying do their job…y’know, be dads, might actually be more amusing.

Take these photos as hilarious evidence that sometimes, fathers just don’t know how to dad.

1. He didn’t know that overalls aren’t meant to be worn topless.

2. These totally match…

3. No, tights aren’t pants, despite what this father and tween girls will try to tell you.

4. Isn’t the point of onesies that you don’t need other clothing on top?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

5. The hair gel and no-shirt combo is too much. I can’t.

6. He was too busy filming to actually catch him.

7. I’m pretty sure that’s not how it goes.

8. “Wearing things backwards is all the rage”…is what this dad probably said.

9. Let’s hope he’s not in charge of talking about the birds and the bees.

10. Ready for swim class? Check.

11. This dad got confused and put both legs into one pant leg.

12. Dad tried to make her swimsuit more fashion forward. Dad failed.

13. When mom’s away dad will…use a zip tie to do a ponytail.

14. That hat? Yeah, those are shorts.

15. A for effort on that sun block application job.

16. Rompers are annoying when you have to go to the bathroom…or when dad tries to put them on.

17. “So you’re telling me the tie goes in the front?”

18. No…just…just no.

One thing I’ve learned? Dads definitely shouldn’t be allowed to put clothing on their kids…unless, of course, you’re looking for a good laugh.

I Couldn’t Stop Laughing At This 8 Year Old’s Hilarious Yet Kinda Gross Letter To Mom. LOL!

Mother and Blogger, Liesl Testwuide, sent her 8-year-old son to summer camp last year, in the hopes he’d have a great time and get to experience all that camp has to offer. It was the first time he had been away from home for more than a night, and she was eagerly waiting to get a letter from him since she knew the camp staff urged the children to write to their parents. After a while she got her wish when the mailman turned up. Her son had written her a letter telling her about all the things he had learned so far at camp, it wasn’t exactly what she had in mind but oh boy was it amazing.

Next year she needs to make sure to send him to summer camp with a whole book of stamps. Source: Hairpin Turns Ahead Share this boy’s hilarious letter to his mom with your friends below.

This Dad Asked His Little Kids What They Thought About Presidential Candidates

I remember the carefree days when I was a kid…but only vaguely.

I didn’t have to worry about politics, war, or really anything on the news other than those segments that featured cute newborn pandas. Life was good.

Whether or not you allow your kids to be more involved with current events, sometimes it’s hard to shield them from everything. And since children are basically like adorable sponges when it comes to absorbing information, you’re fighting an uphill battle when it comes to them remembering something they overheard.

When this dad asked his kids some questions about a certain Presidential candidate, their responses were kind of hilarious.

I do remember thinking everyone older than me at that age was 200, too.

Do you let your kids watch the news if they express an interest in it or do you try to shield them until they’re older?

This Guy Made An Awesome Sandbox With Benches For His Kids

Growing up, my sandbox was a backyard oasis where I could truly escape the stresses of being a kid, while simultaneously exploring my creative side.

There were only ever two downsides to spending all day, every day in my sandbox: the uncomfortable feeling of having sand in every nook and cranny and keeping wildlife from taking up shelter in it.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Luckily, Reddit user darwin_thornberry has found a way to solve both problems. He built an awesome sandbox for his children with collapsible benches that also serve as a lid. This design is so cool, it only makes me more jealous that someone didn’t think of it sooner.

He began by assembling a wooden base with plenty of room for sand.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

Next, he laid out a series of two-by-fours that he would eventually transform into two benches.

He added sets of hinges that would allow the wooden boards to serve a double purpose.

With the bench seats completed, he began work on the back supports.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

To make the benches fully collapsible, he needed to add more hinges to the back supports.

With both benches finished, the sandbox was mostly complete. All that was left to do was put it in place and add sand.

Now darwin_thornberry‘s kids have an amazing spot to play without getting sand in…uncomfortable places.

Plus, they can keep all kinds of critters out with the collapsible seats that double as a lid!

Oh the things I would have done for a backyard box like this when I was little! For the full instructions, click here.

This Barber Went Above And Beyond To Give A Boy With Autism His First Haircut

Children diagnosed with autism often have trouble when it comes to trusting new people. Something as simple as a haircut can quickly turn into a nightmare of nerves and anxiety for these kids.

James Williams, a barber in Briton Ferry, Wales, knew that he’d have to get creative if he was going to give sweet Mason his first real haircut. Other stylists had tried to calm the little guy’s nerves, but each attempt ended in failure. That’s when Williams realized that the solution was to get on Mason’s level — literally.

Lying down on the floor, Mason calmly played his games while Williams snipped away.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

It took a few visits for Mason to stop shying away from the sheers, but Williams patiently waited to earn the kiddo’s trust.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Sometimes, you just have to tackle life’s problems from a new angle!

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Williams asked for a high-five when he finished the job, but Mason gave his new buddy a big hug instead. No amount of money can top that precious tip.

She Sleeps With 3 Of Her 7 Children — Is Attachment Parenting Taking It Too Far?

Do you remember crawling into bed with your parents when you were young? If so, you probably also recall them kicking you out, saying things like “you’re too big now” or “you have your own bed.”

Who can blame them? Now that I’m an adult, I look forward to getting into bed every night. It’s soft, comfortable, serene, and most of all, mine. Having to share it with a couple of kids would be enough to send me right to the couch.

These days, however, attachment parenting is more popular than ever.

When reading over the principles, it’s easy to see why parents are attracted to this method, which is based on empathy, love, respect, and compassion. Building an early bond with an infant or toddler has been shown to lead to better mental and emotional health – and a big part of that is co-sleeping.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

At best, co-sleeping is really adorable.

At worst, it results in a swift kick to Mom’s face in the middle of the night.

But how far is too far? This mom of seven by the name of Anni Jones practices what she calls “gentle attachment parenting.” For her, that includes sleeping with her three youngest children — and they’re not exactly babies!

What do you think? Is this mom taking it too far? How old is too old to sleep with your children? Let us know! As for me, I’ll be sprawled out like a starfish in my child-free bed.

The Best Way To Raise Your Children Is To Lie Constantly. Don’t Believe Me? Here’s Some Hilarious Proof.

Kids are like blank canvases waiting for us to fill their lives with learning and insight. Also, they’re really fun to pull pranks on. It’s the best perk of becoming a parent… besides watching a little human grow up and all that other good stuff.

It’s a long-con prank, but the priceless embarrassment they’ll experience when they finally learn the truth will make all the dirty diapers and sleepless nights worth it.

Baby Tries Bacon For The First Time…And Absolutely Loves It!

Bacon. Delicious, savory bacon. It’s a true gift to mankind, isn’t it? It’s hard not to feel on top of the world while chowing down on a piece of the crunchy stuff, which is something that one adorable toddler named Easton Beach learned on Christmas.

Watch as his first bite sends him into another delicious dimension.

This kid is all of us.

As Louis C.K. once said, “When you have bacon in your mouth, it doesn’t matter who’s president or anything. Every time I’m eating bacon I think, ‘I could die right now,’ and I mean it.”

This Toddler Had The Absolute Best Reaction To Seeing A Step Dancer In Ireland

When two-year-old Georgia spotted an Irish dancer performing on the street in Galway, Ireland, she knew she had to join in.

Little did the toddler know that she was dancing with the award-winning Emma O’Sullivan. In Ireland, this step dancing phenom is a household name, well known for teaching dance, winning dance competitions, and appearing on talent shows. As you’ll see in this video, it looks like little Georgia is going to follow in her fancy footsteps!

With each kick, jump, and twirl, the toddler tries to copy this famous Irish dancer — and is surprisingly good at it.

He Explained What Snow Was To This Little Girl, And Her Reaction Is Hysterical

Even as toddlers, we learn so much about the intricacies of this planet. Gravity sucks, food is good, and things can disappear and reappear through the magic incantation of “peek-a-boo!”

But when one little girl was told by her dad that snow comes from the sky…well, it was just too absurd for her to handle! “Daddy is funny!” she said, disparaging her father as the Catholic Church once did Galileo. Even Mom seemed to find the notion daffy, and she quickly joined in on the giggling.

Now that I’m thinking about it, she might have a point. You’re telling me that clouds create billions of dandruff-like flakes out of ice, and each flake is completely unique? That sounds like a dumb idea, even for Dad!
