Epic parenting fails that will make you feel like a saint

Parenting fails have existed since the dawn of, well, parents. The only difference is that now there is social media, so everyone gets to witness your little boo boos. Fun!

To put your foot in it

Wardrobe malfunction

Fashion these days… It’s daunting enough setting foot in a ‘young people’ clothing store with its loud music, scary mirrors and overly chirpy (or conversely, completely uninterested) 15-year-old shop assistants.
