It may not be something you want to admit, but everyone has been there. At some point in every parent's life, there comes a moment when they completely and utterly fail. It may be something you realize instantly or something your kids point out to you years later in a therapy session. Don't feel too bad, though. As it turns out, many moms and dads have slowly but surely come out of hiding to commiserate over their perceived parenting mistakes. All you have to do is look at social media to find a plethora of parenting fails on Twitter.
In a way, it can be quite comforting to realize that raising children is just as difficult for other parents, too. Often, you are your own worst critic. So when you hear another mom or dad confess that they've biffed it a couple times and their child has survived, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that whatever you did is probably not as bad as you think it is. In fact, it might even be funny. I remember I was initially mortified, being a new mom, when I forget to have a clean diaper ready and my son peed clear across the room. But looking back, I can laugh. And hopefully you will, too, after checking out these top parenting fail tweets.
