We’ve all had them, those parent fails that make us feel like failures as parents. If we didn’t have them we wouldn’t have the moments where we feel like we are rocking this parenting thing.
3 Parent Fails

The biggest of my parent fails always comes back to is when my oldest was about a year old. We went to a restaurant for lunch, moments before paying for our meal, we realized she was in need of a diaper change. Not a problem, I had a diaper and travel wipes in my bag. She ended up leaving the restaurant in her shoes, a diaper, and a coat. We headed to the nearest Walmart to buy her some new clothes.
Lesson #1: Always have a change of clothes for your kids in your vehicle.
“We left for the ballgame tonight and when I got to the school I had a text from this kid that said, ‘Where are you?’
It was then that I realized I forgot him. He walked home from my mother’s house and no one was home. He’s still mad at me.” -Colleen Hoover, Facebook
Lesson #2: Count your kids before leaving the house.
Lesson #3: Do I even need to say it? Always supervise children when coloring with markers!!!
