Take a break from parenting duties and join the fun ride of tweets from other parents that'll crack you up and also give you emotional support.
Parenting is a combination of both art and science. It is the art of patiently handling tantrums and irrational demands and the perseverance of disciplining children without losing your sanity. Ah! What a daunting job!
Parenthood is the most difficult "hood" you can enter. And guess what? Many do it voluntarily. It starts with changing stinky diapers to getting peed on ten times in a row, messy feeding episodes, and failed lullaby sessions. There is never a dull moment.
The adventure continues when they grow up. Kindergarten meltdowns, clash of teens, exam stress, parent-teacher meets, school competitions—parenting is one emotional rollercoaster ride after the other. 21st-century parenting sure has its unique challenges. So, what does a parent do? Sit back and sulk, get up and fight, or think less and laugh at the chaos?
You can certainly jump on the funny parents' bandwagon and enjoy the ride of hilarious parenting tweets that we have curated for you. It will make you forget your teen's dirty pair of socks found under the sofa. Well, at least for some time.
Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets from recent times:

Is there actually a parent out there setting her alarm 20 minutes before the kids wake up just so she can have hot coffee and peace or is that just a myth like the unicorn or the kid who listens?— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) January 14, 2023
No one ever came up with a parenting manual. We are all just a bunch of freshers out here, navigating our way through this emotional job. To some, parenting looks like a piece of cake, but it is not. It's a facade. Nobody has "cracked" the code, and it's one day at a time.
