Sometimes parenting can be a difficult task to take on. Though this is true, that doesn't mean it's always that way. Even in the midst of those frustrating times, kids have a way of reminding you that there's always a silver lining in unfortunate situations. Many parents may share those funny or aww-worthy moments with their friends and family through text or email, but others — as seen in this week's list of funniest parenting tweets — share it with all of their followers across social media.
Some of the funniest tweets about parenting ome from parents whose children are smarter than they think. When a 10-year-old's sarcasm is better than a millennials, then that's when you know parenting has more perks than you can ever count. And sometimes, having some others parenting tweets to refer to in your most frustrating moment will help ease your pain and promote a conversation that you can join in on.
Regardless if you've been out of the Twittersphere for some time or if you frequent your timeline every hour, you'll always find a way to fit right into the parenting world that it has to offer.
If you need a quick pick me up to get you through the end of the week or just want a laugh session with your significant other about how accurate these experiences are, these 27 tweets will be exactly what you're looking for.
