Let’s be clear: parenting is not easy by any measure. It takes patience, determination, and a whole lot of love to pull off a successful attempt at the world’s toughest job. With that being said, it also doesn’t have to feel that hard. Simple acts of kindness goes a long way in helping our kids find their self-confidence when they need it most.
Being emotionally open to sharing and expressing ideas and feelings to our kids is something that takes an entire lifetime to master. All we can do is our best in our most spontaneous ways possible. These next 50 examples demonstrate just how satisfying it is to excel as a parent that truly likes getting involved in their child’s life without wreaking havoc. To all those who aspire to be phenomenal parents, we suggest you start taking notes!
1) Love Of Kin
Every parent of a LGBTQ child should take note of this wholesome handwritten card. It is a card dedicated from Dad to his beloved child who had intentions of opening up about his sexuality. As it turns out, Dad just wanted to reassure him that love is the bond that holds them together and to top it off, his parents seem to approve of his lovely companion, Mike.
2) Dress For Success
This image cuts deep. In Thailand, Mother’s Day is celebrated in unison with other families. However, this youngling’s mother had passed away tragically and his Dad had the perfect answer: put on a dress and show him his mother is still with the little lad in spirit. The heartwarming photograph is almost too tender for eyes to bare!
3) Kinda Gay
The story goes an Army man got to a bakery and ordered something “kinda gay” because his son came out of the closet to his mother who apparently confessed his son was scared to tell him. “He’s my boy and I love him. Can you make me something, kinda, you know…kinda gay?” said the man. He is truly killing the parenting game with this move to support his son. His son will definitely appreciate his gesture of appreciation.
4) Disney Diva
Father-daughter duos don’t get much cuter than this. These two are sparkling up movie theatres by dressing up as their preferred Disney movie characters. And would you look at how they hold hands together? A strong nomination for father of the year goes out to this fine fellow for sharing such an adorable activity with his little one.
5) Dad Jokes Welcomed
Here’s a typical day with dad. You realize he’s never wanted to take a picture in his life and the moment you do, he ends up pulling another dad joke for the books! Nothing lightens the mood better than the corny vibes from a father’s sense of humor.
6) Pushing Past The Limit
The grit and drive it takes to beat the odds is truly one that can’t be taken for granted. When you have someone like your father supporting you along the way, the path gets much easier. This student overcame the loss of her scholarship and in-state tuition and was at a very low point in her life. Fortunately, her Papi was behind her every step of the way and never flinched when it came to giving her the support she needed to get back on track and graduate.
7) Good Luck Duck
This rubber ducky was used by a man as a good luck charm to be spread in different places. His passing occurred 4 years ago and his son had thought to have collected all of the duckys. On a fateful night, the son opened the back seat cupholder of the car and what he found was the last rubber ducky. It goes to show the impact our parents have even after they’re gone.
8) Super Dad
This meme was sent to a dad as a joke by his son. Little did he know that he would print it, date it, laminate it, and put it in his work office. For all the super dads providing for your kids, your work is always appreciated.
9) Just Yolking Around
A simple joke turned into an engaging hobby when one son spoke to his mom about cooking. The kid suggested she practice cooking regardless of his inability to try it since he was living in a separate continent. Little did he know, his mom took his words to heart and sent him a picture of his egg yolk declaring she’ll be practicing for when he gets back home.
10) Proud Dad
This proud dad shows off the very same tie his son made him when he was in the 1st grade! He wore it even for his eventual graduation when it all came full circle. As a parent, these are the moments you dream of accomplishing with your child. These two are extremely lucky to have experienced such a heartwarming moment.
11) Hilarious Voice-Recording
Some secrets are too big to keep quiet about. That’s why this funny dad decided to play a funny prank on his daughter with a voice-recorded card of himself yelling at the top of his lungs about how her new Howler dog pooped on the carpet. That’s one embarrassing way to announce the arrival of a new dog, but who better than Dad to deliver the great news!
12) Blockbuster Or Bust
This autistic boy was having a tough time dealing with the closure of BlockBuster. As a way to turn that around, his parents decided to create a mini Blockbuster for him to always cherish! This is what having parents with hearts of gold looks like.
13) Step Into My World
This little rascal got a taste of the human world when this man decided to engage. The man works as an electrician at a zoo and happened to meet with this little mammal on this day at work. The little mammal took a moment and gave the whole human thing a try! The result was too cute not to be recorded.
14) Wise Words From Dad
If this doesn’t inspire you to motivate yourself, nothing will. This tidbit of information goes a long way in a life full of self-doubt and overcoming tough obstacles. It’s a good thing we can count on Dad to offer his sagely advice from time to time.
15) Equality For All
This girl’s dad has made improvements in the way he perceives different ideas. Apparently, dying your hair blue is synonymous with being gay after this dad decided to become more proactive in the LGBTQ community as a result of his daughter dying her hair. It’s so innocently naive and cute that we just had to share how unbelievable this story was.
16) Never Miss A Day
Father’s have a strong bond like no other with their baby girl. This one in particular always gave irises to his two daughters on every birthday they’ve been alive. The first year in which they are not together, he still manages to deliver a flower to them over the phone just in time for the occasion. I think it’s time we grab more tissues because the waterworks are definitely settling in.
17) Who Let The Dogs Out
It’s odd when you’ve been describing someone who’s been living with you as a person, when in fact it’s been a dog all along. That’s what happened to this daughter who found out her dad’s companion had been a dog all this time. Well, he never said he wasn’t a dog so it kind of goes both ways!
18) Dad On Duty
Nothing spells out ‘dad’ than your old man taking the initiative to water plants in Walmart’s garden section. It’s not surprising given that most dads are programmed to work with a tool at all times throughout the day. It is, after all, the reason for having the title of father in the first place.
19) Smile Like You Mean It
This dad seemed to be having a tough time getting a smile out of his daughter. To get over the hump, he did what any brave dad would do and stepped into his more feminine side. His occasional makeovers inspired his daughter to break out of her shell and finally show that awesome natural smile of hers.
20) Daddy Delight
This dad decided to make his child feel better by 3-D printing a mini elephant. The cute little animal was a sweet offering from the dad who used his better senses to detect that his child was not feeling well. Small acts of kindness such as these go a very long way when trying to make a difference in your child’s life.
21) Dad Jokes For The Win
Dad jokes never seem to catch a break. Except for this last one that may just have you from the first punchline. The caption, “I thought you’d like to know that I’m outstanding in my field.” accompanied this picture of the clever dad. Regardless if you think it was funny, it was creative enough to get some grins from the recipient in his daughter.
22) Sing It Loud, Sing It Proud
A bad week at the office is not enough to stop this mom from making her daughter feel special. She apparently sang “you are my sunshine” at the top of her lungs while the whole office could hear her! Talk about supporting your daughter through thick and thin.
23) Overnight Mango Express
Remember getting your lunches packed and prepped before going to school by mom or dad? Well, this girl’s dad had completely forgotten to send over the much-anticipated mangoes that were promised. To not let his baby girl down, the dad decided to overnight ship the mangos directly to her apartment! This guy definitely deserves a nomination for Dad Of The Year.
24) Doppelganger Dad
This single mom took the time and put in the effort to not let her boy feel bad on “Donuts with Dad” day at school. She dressed up using hat, shirt, and moustache to really buy into the appearance of looking like his father. Her child’s smile means all the hard work and dedication truly paid off with his satisfaction.
25) Cool Like The Other Side Of The Pillow
Parents always want to try and stay hip anyway they can. One way of doing it is texting you with phrases you taught them to make themselves feel young and relevant. As time goes by, those messages become more endearing and meaningful even if they were cute attempts at trying to be cool.
26) You’re On Your Own Now
This girl’s dad has been peeling her oranges for lunch since kindergarten. The time finally arrived on her last day of High School when her dad prepped her with some whole oranges and a heartfelt message. There’s no sweeter way to embrace an empty nest than to push out the fledgeling with kindness.
27) Helmet Horde
The baby in the back is wearing a head-shaping helmet that is quickly trending in fashion. His family has picked up the hint and now they all wear their own helmets for protection. You can tell this family loves having fun together and sharing cool moments like these!
28) So Proud Of You
This mom smiles proudly the moment she realizes her daughter’s book was in her local library. Her mother looks incredibly happy in knowing her daughter made a huge accomplishment in her life! This is the face we’d like for all our parents to show us in our brightest hour.
29) Embraced and Supported
It always feels amazing when you realize your parents have your back. This mom decided to support her child coming out by sending a picture of herself and the family dog offering their support. Unconditional love and open understanding is the true way of becoming an excellent parent for anyone needing guidance. A little appreciation, like this snapshot, goes a long way in building that long-lasting relationship.
30) The Baby Remedy
This mama wants the world to know that if you’re having a bad day, you should probably take second out and look at a cute baby. Seriously, it will get you to not worry about your small-world problems and just realize that we can still treasure something as adorable as a smiling baby. If your friends are having a bad day, then you should spread this kind-hearted message to them and see just how much of a difference it makes in their life.
31) Once a Child, Always a Child
A rare shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger cutting his son’s hair as a kid compared to a more modern picture of his son getting his hair cut. It goes to show that you’re always a kid in your father’s eye and you never really grow out of your youth. Moments like these are what makes being a dad such an awesome role to fill.
32) Stay Tuned
Being outdated is an expression that bears no weight to this cool grandma. She decided to checkout her nieces game over the laptop and her niece has never been happier. A little bit of effort goes a long way for those who truly care about you.
33) My First And Only
The tasty cake was made by a loving father for his daughter who recently ended her relationship that very same day. He knew nothing else could take the pain away, but at least he reminded her of how much she meant to him. Daddy’s little girl won’t ever forget how brave daddy was that night she needed him the most.
34) Graduation For Daughter
Next level gestures involve a lot of thought and planning before executing. This was nothing short of awesome as this Dad builds a graduation stage along with a podium on his driveway to give as a surprise to his daughter. A global pandemic couldn’t stop the moment his daughter worked for so hard, so he did what he could to allow her to enjoy the feeling as much as she could.
35) Trick-or-Treat Please
This heroic dad decided to pass out candy to everyone on the flight so his 3-year-old could trick-or-treat. If that isn’t one of the most wholesome things you’ll read all day, then we don’t know what is. This child is extremely lucky to have such a wonderful dad at his side.
36) Front Row And Center
Parents have a knack for always wanting to be present at every event. Seth Rogan knows the feeling since he claims his parents took him to Ellen that day and were sitting up in the front with the audience. Now that’s what you call actively participating parents!
37) Our Biggest Cheerleader
If you need some positive compliments to make you feel good, why not go to our parents? This girl knows her dad is her best supporter, so she goes to him for advice on how she looks. Of course, daddy had nothing but great things to say to help her feel special.
38) Candle-Lit Table Top
The sweet set up on this table was arranged by the mother-in-law for what should have been a wedding day. The reasons as to why it didn’t go through are unknown to us, but at least its the thought that counts. It goes to show that not all mothers-in-law are evil and do have good intentions!
39) Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way
This dad did the unthinkable and created a retro-style controller for her specially abled daughter to play Zelda: Breath of The Wild. It was simply amazing that he had the skills to program the hardware to work at that high of a success rate. Regardless, this dad demonstrated just how determined he was to have his daughter experience happiness through playing her favorite video game.
40) New Sheriff In Town
What happens when you invite your mom over who’s worked in the jewelry store business for over 3o years? You get someone who will constantly be inspecting the back of your smartphones looking for a way to fix things. It’s okay, at least she will be happy knowing she can be of service to you as all good mothers strive to be.
41) A Walk To Remember
From the first day of kindergarten to the first day of college move-in, this dad has accompanied his son every step of the way.

42) Fort Night Queen

43) Rainbows and Butterflies
This mom has been showing her support for her daughter’s recent coming out announcement by sending rainbow hearts in acceptance. She’ll get annoying at some point, but for now, we’ll appreciate the fact that she’s being cute with her digital expression. Mom knows how to be supportive, even if she does it in her own quirky ways.
44) Sincerely Mom
A bartender asks her bar guest what she was writing. The guest responded she was a mother of 3 daughters and dedicated time every day to write 5 lines to each of them. She hopes to gift them to each daughter once they get married. What an absolute cutie pie!
45) Dreaming Cost Nothing
Mom wants to get behind her 3-year-old daughter’s business idea to open up a mobile nail bar. To do that, she encouraged her passion by posting her latest creation on social media. So far, its only cost her £1, so it may be worth looking into despite her lack of toe control.
46) Casting A New Role
This momma decided to design her son’s cast since they were going to be stuck home for at least another month. His idea of a “tattoo” has finally come to life with this dragon motif his mom came up with. As unfortunate as it is to break your wrist, at least this kid has a pretty cool mom who’s willing to do something like design his cast.
47) I’m Not Leaving
Ever get the feeling your dad will stick by you, literally no matter what? Well, this college student’s father took that to a whole new level when he stuck around for her grad school classes because a hurricane impeded his return back home. Judging by her awkward smile, the girl seems to be hanging in there while her dad on the other hand looks to be having the time of his life.
48) Pay Attention To This!
A clear indicator that your parent might be crazy, is when they pull something like this off. They’re clearly craving your attention because they just want to become more involved in your life. Do yourself a favor and include them more in activities before they start resorting to this madness.
49) Driven Like A Doggy
This mom knew how to make her daughter’s day. She attended a motorcycle rally with her husband when suddenly she spotted this little puppy looking like perfect eye candy. A little snapshot to her daughter for some laughs is how to strengthen that parental bond a little further.

That’s why this parent decided to write post-it words of kindness to her daughter so that she wouldn’t feel weird during her lunch periods. Just another great example of how to kick your parenting skills up a notch is to simply share words of encouragement.

Daughter Ignores Dirty Sock On Floor So Mom Puts Up Sign Next To It Resulting In Hilarity
What did your mom do when you left dirty laundry on the floor? Or, if you are a mom, what do you do when your children do it?
I bet our mothers, and any of us that are mothers ourselves, don’t do what this mom did. My mom sure didn’t.
I’m not a mom myself, but I’m trying to imagine what I would do. And I think it would depend on a variety of circumstances. But I can assure you I would never think to start something that ends up looking like a shrine in my bathroom.
Here’s what happened.
Xep Campbell, of Port Townsend, Washington, found one of her daughter’s very dirty socks on the bathroom floor. Since this wasn’t the first time such a thing had happened, she decided that Instead of picking it up, she would conduct an experiment. In her Facebook post, she says,
“I decided not to toss it in the hamper but instead see how long it would stay there, sort of a sociological experiment.”
A week later, her 10-year-old daughter Kestrel still hadn’t picked up the sock. I’m not sure if this means she failed the test, or if the amount of time has some other deep sociological meaning. But that isn’t the point.
After a week had passed and the sock remained on the floor, Xep decided to up her game. Because surely, after this much time her daughter had seen the sock there—I’m guessing this was a shared bathroom—and picked it up.
I certainly knew better than to test my mom that way.
But Campbell is made of different stuff than my mom. As she tells TODAY Parents,
“I try not to take anything in life too seriously and we often play little jokes on one another, so I made the museum label and figured she would roll her eyes, laugh a little, and then pick up the sock.”
She wasn’t expecting what happened next.
Upon seeing the wannabe plaque on the wall, Kestrel texted her mom.
At which point I would have said, “Haha, you’re hysterical, mom.” And picked up the damn sock, because I would not expect her humor to last indefinitely.
As Campbell said, her daughter,
“Gamed her shame.”
When Campbell got home that day her daughter informed her that she had made a pedestal for the sock. Because, a museum piece, right? It deserved a pedestal. Maybe even a glass case.
At this point, Campbell tells TODAY,
“I realized then the game was on. It sort of took a life of its own after that.”
And it did indeed.
Campbell decided that like any true museum piece, this objet d’art needed an awestruck audience.
From here, it seems that mother and daughter just got silly and started having even more fun with the dirty sock. And I have to wonder if this was also a stinky sock. Because who could put up with that for so long?
Regardless, an audience was formed. And not your typical museum type crowd of tourists with cameras. Oh, no. This was a crowd of barnyard animals.
And why stop at barnyard animals?
This whole thing started on US Thanksgiving, so there might be a natural transition here, at least in terms of holidays. And either mother or daughter is keeping up with what’s trending in the news.
As Upworthy reports, the newsworthy addition is a representation of the first monolith that popped up in Utah in November, and the subsequent ones that appeared as well. Why not add one to the bathroom?
And finally, the holiday theme.
Before long, a nativity scene appeared on and around the sock. Some more art was added to the museum bathroom wall. And eventually, a gorilla joined the barnyard animals. Perhaps for a bit of diversity?
With all of this going on, you might think the family had a huge bathroom, but that’s not the case at all. Imagine being not quite awake in the morning and trying to brush your teeth without stepping on the exhibit?
For those that know Campbell, none of this is likely surprising. She told Upworthy that she aimed to live her life in a way that positively impacts those she comes in contact with.
“I always try to take the creative route whenever possible. There is a lot of beige in the world that needs to be countered. There are also endless possibilities to be creative with even the most mundane aspects of life. I tend to go for the weird option when it’s there.”
I think I’d like to meet her.

60 Celebrities Postpartum Who Showed What They Really Looked Like After Giving Birth
Going through pregnancy and giving birth can cause significant changes to a woman’s body–weight gain, skin stretching, and hormone fluctuations to name a few.
