Dads often get a bad reputation for being the least serious parent.But instead of criticising dads for their, shall we say, ‘unique’ parenting techniques , perhaps we should be celebrating them for the valuable life lessons they’re teaching our kids.And they’re instilling a great sense of humour in them, too. After all, you’ve got to laugh at some of these…even if they are classic ‘dad jokes’.
It is often considered that between mothers and fathers, it’s the mothers who take parenting more responsibly and fathers try to see the humour side of it. Well this holds true at least till the kids are in their toddler age. Some dads fun approach as a better approach to parenting
As Spiderman’s Uncle Ben once famously said, “with great power comes great responsibility,” and few responsibilities are greater than that of being a father. But as you can see from these hilarious pictures, some dads take that responsibility more seriously than others.
Compiled by we, this list of dad fails is sure to make you laugh regardless of whether you’re a parent or not. But if you’re a mom then, well, you might want to check to make sure your husband isn’t drawing eyebrows on the baby or sizing it up for a watermelon helmet…
However for some reasons moms don’t wish to leave their babies alone to their dads, even though some the concepts which a dad finds interesting and creative are actually crazy ideas to moms. These babies were left alone with their dad, let’s find out what they did:
Having a sense of humour
This dad noticed an uncanny resemblance between his little baby’s head and a… kiwi.
Dad is a great teacher
What better way is there to teach kids the value of patience and tolerance than by slowly and carefully stacking Cheerios on them?If the stack falls and you have to start all over again, you’ve also imparted the wisdom of ‘getting back on the horse’. Two birds with one stone.
Bath time is super fun with dad
Some babies can be hard to please, of course
Learning to laugh at yourself
There’s nothing worse than when your kid is having a tantrum and you can’t keep a straight face.Sometimes this will further infuriate them because you’re not taking them seriously.
To keep his baby away from the wires and computer games, this dad makes a smart move and got a gate around his gadgets and lets the baby play around in rest of the room.
Instead of dad taking care of the baby, the baby is taking care of his dad to sleep. While the baby sits comfortably on couch to watch TV, his dad is having a sound sleep, with all the stuff toys surrounding him.
Preparing for the world of work
This dad clearly thought he’d teach his kids the value of hard work.While he plays video games sitting in what looks like a tiny paddling pool, his children stand patiently nearby holding things he might like to use.
This man was quite happy sitting at the table with his pint and wasn’t going to move for anything – especially not pushing his kid on a swing.But he didn’t let that stop him. Oh, no. He decided to use his initiative and came up with a great compromise.
And time-saving skills…
