Raising kids is no joke. It takes an enormous amount of patience, effort, and willpower to be a parent. However parenting definitely has a funny side to it, and these comics managed to bring out just that. Whether you are a new parent or have been at it for a while, these parenting comics will tickle your funny bone and are relatable as hell.
1. When Caffeine Becomes Your Lifesaver
If an average human requires 3 cups of coffee to power through the day, a new parent probably requires 4 times the amount. But when you are surviving through sleep deprivation for months, you realize that no matter how many cups of coffee you gulp down, it still doesn’t help.
2. When You Use Every Trick Up Your Sleeve
It’s a universal fact that kids hate veggies. But that doesn’t mean you are going to let them have their way. A parent can go to any extent to make sure their little ones eat their carrots and broccoli.
3. When The Kids Are Finally Asleep
No, it’s not time to get dirty between the sheet but clean the sheets. Since it’s impossible to get any housework done when your kids are awake, you wait until they go to bed to do your laundry, wipe the floor, and do the dishes. Phew! So much for alone time.
4. When Your Kid Hates Your Food
This one stings hard for every parent whose kid refuses to eat their food. You work your a** off in the kitchen to prepare a delicious meal for them and they reject it with zero hesitation.
5. When You Don’t Get 5 Minutes To Yourself
Forget about having some me-time. As parents, it’s impossible to get even 10 minutes to yourself without being interrupted by your kid.
6. When You Have No Clue About Their Thoughts
Raise your hand if you’ve been kicked in the crotch or hit on your nose by your little one with no prior warning.
7. When You Think It Would Get Easier With Time
If you thought that parenting would become easier as your kid grows up and becomes a bit more independent, you couldn’t be more wrong. No matter how old they become, it’s an endless cycle of tending to their needs.

Kids, especially toddlers have mastered the art of throwing a tantrum. And they almost always do it when you are in a public place.
10. When You Thought It’d Be Great To Have Another One
“It’s great for your child to have a sibling”, they said.
11. When You Don’t Know What Day It Is
If you are one of those parents who dressed your kid in uniform when it was supposed to be a Casuals Day, you would definitely relate to this. It’s hard enough for us to figure out if it’s a weekday or weekend, why do they have to come up with such things to make it even harder for us? WHY!
12. When Your Kid Won’t Get Out Of The Pool
Fun fact: It takes about 6 hours to get a child out of the pool. Or park.
13. When Your Child Attempts To Tell You A Story
