Whether it’s revealing a love of Phil Collins to the world or rocking up to dinner in hot pants, some clever moms and dads have taken embarrassing their kids to a whole new level. These are the parents who have mortified their kids in the most unbelievable ways.
Case in point right here. This girl’s mother made her pose for a photo with a waiter she had the hots for. As you can see, she’s putting on a brave face, but inside she’s probably dying.
This mega-embarrassing sight was one unfortunate daughter’s punishment. She wrote, “My mom told me to change my “slutty” shorts before we went to dinner. I said no. So my dad cut his jeans to fit in. We went to dinner and then mini golf like this.”
You have to admire the mom behind this goofy joke. This is actually a jar of beets, get it? But it must have been pretty humiliating (not to mention disappointing) for her kid to unwrap at Christmas.
The modern masters of totally embarrassing their children are taking things to a new level with the use of Twitter. Combining a soppy declaration of love with Phil Collins – it doesn’t get much worse than that.
Dressing up as an extra from Mad Max: Fury Road then driving your kid to school is seriously cool parenting – depending on your perspective. “Dropped the war pup off at school in front of all her friends. Don’t know why she’s so upset,” the dad posted.
Now these weirdo parents are not only sharing TMI, they are celebrating the date their grown child was conceived by sending her “thanks for the memories” gifts. Is there actually anything more embarrassing than a pink gorilla singing “happy conception day” at your office?
You can almost see the teenager squirming with utter humiliation just beyond the photo here. And we know their parents are snickering at their own silly joke. Good work, folks.
With this awful tattoo, Eadie McCarthy’s pop effortlessly embarrasses her without doing anything more than standing there. She wrote on Instagram, “This is a legitimate tattoo that my father has on his actual skin. And this isn’t even the worst one.”
Yes, folks, those are cowboy boot sandals. Real cowboy boot sandals. Pair these with a deeply unstylish hat and you’ve got a dad who’s an absolute master at embarrassment.
Here we have proof that corny t-shirts were not in fact invented in the ‘90s as some would believe. This dad was rocking an “amateur gynecologist” tee way back in the 1979. “Some t-shirts are timeless,” writes his kid.
By literally mistaking Facebook for Google, and revealing his innermost desires (well, shopping list) to the world, this dad has unintentionally embarrassed the heck out of his son. But to be fair, he got the info he needed in the end.
Thanks to their nightmarish sweaters, these mortifying parents have basically ruined their daughter’s whole social life for the next four years. She might as well drop out of high school now.
Here we have another horrifying example of a completely inappropriate parental use of Facebook. Why do embarrassing parents like bad puns and double entendres so much?
Dads pretending they’re being kissed when they’re actually just hugging themselves – gross and humiliating. But by sharing it on Twitter, this kid really only has herself to blame for any public shaming.
The father behind this photo has expertly combined being both an embarrassment as well as over-protective in one neat little t-shirt. His daughter Nicolle writes, “I actually can’t believe my dad bought this!”
Your dad’s face glaring out from your t-shirt while you’re going on dates, meeting up with friends – it’s embarrassment on another level. Being grounded for months would be way better than having to wear that.
The American pro skateboarder Tony Hawk used an ingenious method to punish and/or embarrass his kids. “This is what happens when my kids fight over video games,” he wrote.
This mom decided to take her son’s love life into her own hands with predictably disastrous and humiliating consequences. We can all be pretty certain that Bryce and Lisa didn’t get back together.
Cheesy t-shirts really seem to be the embarrassing dad’s weapon of choice. “Chance to embarrass teenagers? Priceless,” wrote this goof of a father.
While it might be all tongue-in-cheek, we get the impression the parents are not all that thrilled with the idea of their grown child returning home. “My parents painted the house while I was away. Guess which room is mine.”
