We have not had a funny pictures round-up for a few months, and this one is dedicated to parents... again. Why you ask, are we so impressed by the extreme efforts and solutions of some parents? Because some children are different and require parenting that is in the same league as, say, taming wild animals. So, without further ado -

It's Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad (Parents) and Kids!

Keeping them busy

This picture is sorely in the need of caption:

Graduating to more extreme activities:

Here is a game that every warm-blooded boy would enjoy: make them pose as superheroes and let them use anything they can find outside to arm and outfit their characters. At a certain angle, they might even seem like flying! This time however, it's the setup created by photographer Jan Von Holleben (they also have fine art posters and postcards):

"Vintage Games" and retro-style are always welcome:

(originals unknown)

or simply dress them up! -

and then, by simple image manipulation, turn them into monsters! They will love it -

(see a lot more here)

Awesome toy! You can shave the baby -

Give them a bath.... (seven babies sit to cool down after a baby massage class held for young mothers)

Convoluted talk, with a lot of imaginative loops involved - a Baby Talk?

Inventive Parents

Necessity is the mother of invention. "iSuck" and "iParent" doing the mothering part, too -

These cages actually existed (proof here):

Have two kids? Make two extra doors (order it from SlamDoors):

Er... actually, fatherhood is not that glamorous, or slick -

Children encounter frustration too:

Scare them... gently

We are not advocating shock-therapy, not at all!.. Only distraction:

(original unknown)

This is going too far -

I hope this is Photoshopped -

This is even scarier... Sniper bait? -

The picture above was taken at the end of World War 2 in Amsterdam. Much of the country had been liberated, so a lot of people went out to celebrate on Dam square in Amsterdam. Unfortunately there were still some Germans there (including a sniper) so a celebration turned ugly real quickly when the Germans started firing shots on a gathering of celebrating people. The child was probably too young to realize what is going on.

Some monsters are unexpected, and some are... unintentional:

or you can put your child into a Monster Stroller and observe his/her bravery:

(more info and images here)

Some "monster dresses" are actually quite adorable:

Big Eyes!

They are irresistible, these huge, sweet, lovable eyes - we are hard-wired to react to this big-eyed sweetness, and so we respond by buying them more candy... again:

(original unknown)

Never mind a little "wetness" on the chin. Things are as they should be.

(original unknown)

Big eyes... sometime in the 1970s USSR:

(original unknown)

The secret of beauty in the former USSR? This poster directs: "The Ministry of Food and Perfume Products says: Children are to BRUSH THEIR TEETH!" Period! -

On the other hand -

And yet, and yet - we all know that they are moments of PURE BLISS in parenting. Never boring, intense, and - sweet:

It's probably worth mentioning that the "shave the baby" thing is not actually some wacky real toy, but an art project thing, and not mass produced.

Sniper bait: it is in amsterdam on the day 7 may in 1945 Amsterdam was already liberated. Lots of folk was celebtrating on a large square (The Dam) when suddenly Germans started firing. More on http://gerard45.bloggertje.nl/note/7278/7-mei-1945-de-ware-feiten.html (In Dutch but lots of pics)

To be more precise, I believe it should translate as follows:

The Ministry of Food and Perfume Products says: "It's necessary for children to brush teeth thoroughly"

"Тщательно" means "Thoroughly".

Parenting kids who are very much active, so we say as the wild ones is kind of difficult but somewhat priceless. Nothing beats the joy and fun that you get to share with your kids. Fresh parents who find it hard controlling their kids could check some parenting tips online.

You guys can check ChildUp.com, they offer an Online Parenting Class there wherein you could get the best ideas regarding child behavior management.
