While every parent has their own personal parenting method, it’s safe to say that dads can definitely get pretty creative with the way they handle things. Whether it be entertaining their young ones or using them for their entertainment, dads have done some pretty funny things!
Thankfully, mom has been around to snap photos of some of the more interesting situations she’s found her family in.
At least all of these fathers are trying their best. It’s hard to decide which one is the most facepalm-worthy. I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Here are 16 hilarious photos that show how dads do parenting a little differently than moms.
1. Looks like this dad isn’t the best with technology. I hope that missed call wasn’t for anything important! I wonder how heavily this girl sighed when she read his response.
2. This better be a joke! That does not look like a very comfortable position at all. Hopefully, he isn’t squishing her too hard!
3. Well, this was certainly a solid attempt. The baby certainly looks content! Although his version looks more like a theme park seat belt compared to the swaddled baby in the example.
4. Just a relaxing day by the pool, until Dad decides to play around. Hopefully he didn’t actually kick his kid into the water because that could have turned out very badly. Looks like someone is in the water ready to catch his fall.
5. Gross. I think you grabbed the wrong bottle there buddy! Although it seems his daughter is enjoying the ketchup. Unless her cheeks and chin just appear red from the lighting.
6. Well this guy certainly has the right idea. I wonder if he got hit with karma and ended up falling into the water.
7. They certainly make a good team. First stop the fountain, next stop, a bank!
8. Is this an insanely tall dude with a tiny head? Nah, I think this is just some dad with his kid on his shoulders. Real classy. I wonder how the other guys felt about this peeping Tom.
9. Uh Oh. From the look on this dad’s face I don’t think he was expecting this to happen either. This is why you don’t hold up your tiny human to animals.
10. This hairstyle screams dad. I guess she wouldn’t really have to worry about her style falling out of place with a zip tie securing it.
11. Well this is one way to bond with your baby. She certainly looks excited about whatever her Dad is playing. He must be winning!
12. Gross. I guess he didn’t want to let his food go to waste, or walk around with a ketchup stained baby. But still, couldn’t he have found some napkins or something?
13. That’s one way to carry your kid around and test the functionality of a toilet plunger slash suction cup. It looks really uncomfortable though!
14. Okay this one is actually pretty creative. His daughter wanted a swing, so he turned into a human swing. This way his daughter can play, and he can work out his arm muscles!
15. This definitely looks like an idea approved by dad. I wonder if this guy was successful in punching out his own tooth. He doesn’t look incredibly excited about it.
16. Last but not least. I’m not sure who enjoyed this the most: the dad, the daughter, or the mom when she stumbled across the situation. This dad has my sense of humor, cheers to him!
