20 Funny Photos Of Kids Who Ran Riot When Their Parents Weren’t Watching

Ask any parent and they’ll tell you that having kids is amazing. Of course, what they probably won’t tell you about are the bad times. Like the time they left them alone long enough for them to wreak mayhem on their homes, possessions and pets. Because really, that’s the kind of misguided parenting that nobody’s going to brag about. Thanks to the internet, though, you can see what trouble kids really get up to when left to their own devices…

Leave your child alone in the kitchen for all of 30 seconds, and don’t be surprised to return to a scene like this. Indeed, this disaster area looks like a bomb’s hit it – a flour bomb, anyway. Still, maybe this incident will inspire a culinary career for the toddler. Always look on the bright side…

This little girl looks incredibly pleased with herself. And why wouldn’t she? After all, she’s figured out what shaving cream is for, presumably just like Daddy. Somehow, though, we don’t think she’s going to need it just yet – and definitely not on her face.

When you have kids, you can pretty much guarantee that none of your possessions will remain sacred ever again – no matter how expensive they are. Like this long-suffering parent’s Mac, for instance, which must have cost them a pretty penny. Let’s just hope they’re good at reading between the lines.

We can’t imagine how many times this tenacious toddler must have entered the wrong password to get a result like that. All we know is, it’s absolutely perfect that their picture was the parent’s background. Yes, that mischievous smile says it all.

Bubbles at bath time are basically the only thing that gets most kids in the water. That and their rubber ducks and battleships, anyway. And when you’re that age, there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. Let’s hope the parents have flood insurance…

Not all kids use bath time as a means to wreak havoc, though. Indeed, some just want to get clean – but it can be a little difficult when you have to share with your sibling. This little girl, then, had the bright idea to move her brother to another water source, so they could both wash in peace. Genius.

Kids and sugar are never a good mix – at least not in high doses. The parents of this wild youngster will have been grateful, then, that the dog got involved with licking up all that spilled sweet stuff. Or perhaps not – now they’ll have to deal with a hyperactive child and a hyperactive pet…

Yes, it’s pretty clear that you love your dad. Let’s just hope he loves you more than that car. Thankfully, he most likely does – but even so, it doesn’t lessen the pain he’ll undoubtedly feel when he sees his motor. She’s just fortunate that nobody could stay angry at that smile.

We’re cringing just looking at this picture. Surely this precocious youngster could have found a better material to use for her crafts? Then again, perhaps she knows full well what she’s doing. Kids don’t have the best grasp of morals and ethics, after all – sometimes, they just want to watch the world burn.

One kid plus one tub of butter equals absolute carnage. And as anyone who’s ever baked anything will know, getting butter off your hands is a real pain. So you can imagine the graft involved trying to get it off your entire body. Yeah, we don’t envy these parents.

Actually, never mind: it’s these parents we feel most sorry for. Although, thinking about it, they did leave their kid alone in the kitchen long enough to create this abomination of a mess. So really, it’s kind of on them, when you think about it…

Buying expensive toys for kids is basically a fool’s errand. After all, look how much fun this little girl is managing to have with just a few cheap cotton swabs. It might not be music to her parents’ ears, but at least they’ll have a cheap Christmas next year.

This is why you should never keep a magazine rack in your bathroom. Or at least, make sure your kid understands that “reading material for the toilet” isn’t something to be taken literally, as this innocent-looking child has. That expression says they definitely think they’re doing the right thing…

Looks like someone’s had a severe dressing down over the “masterpiece” on the wall behind them. This is what happens when you leave your kid alone with crayons and no paper, we guess. But hey, these parents can at least take solace in the fact their kid is apparently bursting with creativity.

For most parents, this image is probably akin to the shower scene in Psycho, or watching Linda Blair’s head turn all the way round in The Exorcist. In other words, it’s absolutely horrific. Indeed, they’ll be finding those balls in their house until the day they die (or move out).

Let’s face it: bathrooms are basically adventure playgrounds as far as kids are concerned. Allowing them to run riot in one, then, can really only end badly – as this picture proves. Still, she looks like she’s had fun, even if that poor doll in the toilet is now permanently scarred.

Here’s a fun tip for new parents, or parents-to-be: don’t leave your kids alone with a tin of paint for absolutely any length of time, let alone long enough for them to do something like this.

That’s the guilty face of someone who knows exactly how wrong what they’re doing is. Not that it’s stopped them up to this point, though. Indeed, we reckon they’re probably just guiltier about getting caught, than actually causing this mess. The wonders of kids…

Kids aren’t just cruel to pets, toys and, um, walls. In fact, more often than not, they’re absolutely merciless towards each other. Like this girl, who’s managed to lock what is presumably her sister into an animal cage. And rather than look sheepish over her villainy, she’s laughing and pointing. It doesn’t get much more savage than that.
