i found this tumblr today and it's soooo funny! a dad posts pictures of his son crying and then puts a funny caption under it for why he's crying.

I think the real reason is he's exhausted from carrying that big cranium around.

Why would your first instinct be "I should photograph this for laughs on the internet" rather than "I should take care of my child"

when a kid is crying for a stupid reason, like all of the ones on the blog, there's usually nothing that you as a parent can do to take care of them. sometimes they're just grumpy and you have to just let the kid cry and get over it themselves. i'm sure if the kid fell down the stairs, the dad would take care of him before thinking of "i should take a picture of his bleeding face."

You should start a counter-tumblr called "Parenting advice from a childless internet 20-year old"

You're one to talk about saying embarrassing shit. Not only would I reaffirm what I said earlier, but you must not even have any nieces or nephews, or toddler-aged cousins. If you did, you'd know that kids cry all the fucking time, often for virtually no reason. At least not reasons you can do anything about. God forbid the dad have a little fun with it.

Are you saying we should let kids cry? And feel emotions? What kind of monster are you?!?!?!

why not? it's not hurting anything. and if you've ever been around young kids like this (especially every day), you begin to understand that you can't do anything about it so you might as well just get a laugh out of it. and why not share it? it's not even remotely close to irresponsible and you should be embarrassed, haha.

i mean let's be honest, this isn't funny. whether or not this dude's a bad parent (he isn't) is irrelevant. this just isnt funny.

i worked with kids every day for four years, lol. I taught them how to swim. I probably know better than most 20 years olds what kids crying means.

I would never take pictures of my toddler crying to entertain strangers. I'm not saying it makes this guy a bad parent, I'm saying it's really fucked up to mock your kid publicly for something they have even less control over than you.
