Every parent fails once in a while, and laughing about those parenting goof-ups is what keeps us going. All parents are guilty of and allowed some mistakes now and then. As parenting trends change, we see dads learning the ropes, and it’s hilarious to watch them in action. While every parent can accept having a parenting ‘oopsie’, whenever dads fail—it’s 20x funnier!
Everyone on the internet is sure to have come across the #dadfails. Maybe it was a diaper change gone wrong, or perhaps a disastrous photo. Ranging from random to hilarious, dad fails are all over the internet, and they carry a special place in our hearts—especially when they come with pictorial evidence.
Here are 15 of the funniest dad fails that these fathers shared in the spirit of embracing the fatherhood flaws:
