20 Reasons Why Dads Just Can’t Be Trusted to Be Left with the Kids

Dads: they just can’t be trusted with the kids. Turn your back for five minutes, for example, and they’ve drawn a Hitler moustache on the baby, or randomly dressed your son up like an old man.

This clever dad, for instance, noticed that his baby’s head bore a striking resemblance to… a kiwi. And so naturally, he put a sticker on his little one’s scalp and snapped this witty photo. But we’re sort of glad he did.

It would almost be a shame to not give your baby a tiny bubble beard when he’s in the bath. So we’ll just about forgive this fun-loving papa for his goofy bath-time antics.

It’s one thing to dress your son as an old man, complete with actual walking cane and little sweater vest. It’s another thing entirely to go the whole hog and shave your kid’s head, as his dad did, to make the look authentic. Don’t worry, though: the little guy was due a haircut anyway.

There’s a good chance this guy won’t be left alone with the baby again in the future. That’s because the baby joined the Hell’s Angels and left on his Harley just after this snap was taken.

This resourceful papa built a homemade swing for his daughter using his own body. He does, however, look slightly more impressed with his weird creation than she does… yep, this is bound to end in tears.

Here’s a dad who’s inventive but also probably a bit crazy from baby-related sleep deprivation. Why else would he have taken the rather unusual decision to use his sleeping three-day-old daughter as a table?

This baby was left alone with her pops for a mere ten minutes – that’s all it took for him to give her eyebrows and a mustache, making her look permanently surprised. Or is it angry? We can’t tell.

Leaving your kids alone with their dad on Father’s Day is a big mistake. Or at least it is with this dad, who opted to use his kids as little workers catering to his every whim.

Even a teeny tiny Hitler ’tache can’t make this baby ugly. Her duly concerned aunt wrote alongside the snap, “I asked my brother how my niece was doing and he sent me this… I don’t think he’s taking fatherhood very seriously.” Well, quite.

It’s safe to say that this dad takes a fairly laid-back approach to parenting – or “babysitting”, as he calls it. But, still, his swing on a string is a pretty ingenious creation.

Now this dad is just being sensible. When his wife got a label maker to help organize the family after the arrival of their little one, he put it to good use and made sure he didn’t misplace her. Or, indeed, forget why she was producing that crying sound on the hour, every hour.

This guy is really taking the classic dad joke to the next level here. In fact, we’re betting this little girl will never ask her goofy pops to do her hair in a bun ever again.

Oh cool, free stuff. There’s a pair of shoes, a mop, a basket… and a baby? Classic dad joke, maybe taken a little too far.

Another solid reason why you just can’t leave your kids with their dad: there’s a chance he could confuse them with the dog. Or maybe he’s just being a responsible parent and making sure she doesn’t get lost.

Really, this is all mom’s fault for presuming that her husband and their son could make an appropriate cake by themselves. How could she not have foreseen this giant snotty nose? Still, we’re betting those boogers are delish.

This little one had a big night out, in which cigarettes, beer and a harem of Barbies appear to have been a part. We suspect there’s a dad involved and that he’s trying to make his own late-night shenanigans look better.

Every good dad needs to learn how to effectively multi-task. And gaming while feeding baby at the same time? This guy is multi-tasking like a boss.

This dad definitely can’t be trusted to look after the kids – he’s made a bubble catastrophe. And according to the imgur caption he’s a cop and former marine, so he really should have known better.

What happens when you put two haphazard dads together? They use one of the kids as a ball to play catch, obviously. But hey, at least the other kids look entertained.

Why should the kid have all the fun on the bike when you can get them to push you around? What? It’s character-building.

Trusting a dad to dress your child appropriately isn’t the greatest idea. And this misguided papa couldn’t even put his little girl’s overalls on the right way round. Dad fail.
