Raising kids is a juggling act of mind reading, patience stretching, sifting through the illogical to find the logic, and taking the blame for things you have no control over. Somewhere in all of that you have to have a sense of humour, or you’ll go crazy.

Enter the Instagram account @assholeparents, where parents send in pictures of their kids in various states of distress over the smallest things that are generally not the parent’s fault, but they’re to blame anyway. Sound familiar? Here are a few we thought stood out.

Today’s meltdown brought to you by not sharing my iced coffee. #assholeparent via @amandatoms A photo posted by #assholeparent (@assholeparents) on

Frankly, the rouge does highlight her cheek bones. And her overalls.

Pretty sure everyone would react the same way.

Meltdown because daddy won’t let me play with the drill. #assholeparent (Repost @aktyminski)
