First of all, what a shi**y time to be a kid, right?
Also, what a shi**y time to be a parent.
But there’s no doubt that children are driving their parents up the wall right now and moms and dads are barely holding on by a thread.
Does that pretty much sum up the situation in your house?
Here’s what parents had to say on Twitter about their current situations.
1. You’re on your own now…
Don’t bother me with your BS. Way too many things to deal with right now.
My parenting style during quarantine has changed from “are you ok, is anyone hurt” to “unless you’re hitting each other with bricks I’m not getting up”.

2. That’ll work for now.
No need to lie about this, people.
Show me a mom who says she’s never thrown a towel over pee on the bed in the middle of the night and I’ll show you a damn liar.

3. You’re all in the same boat.
Time to call the insane asylum.
If you are hovering somewhere between “I’ll never get these precious moments back with these precious children” and “Give me some space immediately before I end up in an insane asylum,” all in a matter of seconds, then you too might be parenting during a pandemic.

4. Can’t do that part…
The first section I can get on board with.
🎵 I believe the children are our future
Me: oh yes
🎵 Teach them well
Me: oh no

5. The good old days!
Hopefully they’ll be back soon.
I miss the good old days when my kid going to Chuck-E-Cheese was the only time I worried about them catching some weird new disease.

6. Avenge me!
Call an ambulance!
"AVENGE ME!" [crashing sound]
-Me, to my wife, as I fall down the stairs after stepping on a Lego.

7. Time to do it over again…
A perfect analogy.
My 5yo “cleaned” the house today… she started in the bathroom, with the toilet, and then proceeded to wipe down every inch of the house, including doorknobs, with the same towel.
If that’s not the best analogy for quarantine with kids, I don’t know what is.

8. A HUGE MISTAKE.
Everybody buckle up, it’s gonna get ugly!
our toddler called my wife “chunky” and none of us will survive this

9. Make a decision.
And now it’s time to move on.

What pajamas do you want to wear this week?

10. Pre-school gossip is great.
One of the things I miss most about my son attending pre-school is the gossip about all the other kids. Like that one time Olivia slapped Luke over a book? Classic. And how Bella would always get in trouble at nap time because she could never shut the fuck up? That is so Bella.

11. Out of f*cks to give.
Dinner is served!
I will serve you dinner in a tupperware container if there are no clean bowls. Idgaf

12. You basically ruined their life.
Are you happy now?
My child: I want a snack.
Me: Okay, just give me one minute and I will get it for you.
What my child heard: You will never eat another snack again. Commence with the screaming.

13. The war is on.
That house isn’t big enough for the both of you. Also, the kids need to pick sides.
Last night our son woke up at 3am calling out for his mom but she just laid there until he started calling for me instead.
Bitch this means war.
