These days, parenting is a dog-eat-dog world. In modern parenting you really have to do your best to reach your kids, typically involving the use of memes or the Internet. These are some of the funniest notes parents left to their kids!
Taken Part Two
Look, this mom is not messing around. She is clearly fed up with being the personal maid to her children and it’s pushed her to extreme lengths. In fact, perhaps using this Liam Neeson “Taken” meme is the only way to get her kids to pay attention to her pleas for a clean kitchen. This is a definite modern parenting win!
Left Money With Meatloaf?
This Dad was super thoughtful to leave his teenage son a note with and some cash to order a pizza. Even better is that he specifies that he left the money with “Meatloaf”. As it turns out, Meatloaf is the cat, who is still daintily holding a twenty-dollar bill between her paws. Let’s hope the son was willing to share his pizza with this talented kitty!
Modern Parenting 101
In another from the files of modern parenting comes bargaining chores by withholding the wifi password. In this day and age, everyone (including kids) is constantly connected to the Internet. What better way to get them to do a chore or two than by changing the password daily. This is modern parenting done right!
Forgot How To Mom
This Mom obviously has a lot on her plate, and unfortunately forgot to buy snacks to pack for the kids’ lunch. Instead, she sent her love, complete with a note, in a sealed Ziploc bag. Hey, the kids aren’t going to starve without a snack for just one day!
Pushed To The Edge
Although this one was clearly a joke, this mom has been pushed to the edge. After slaving a way ensuring the kitchen is spotless, she just can’t bear to have her kids come in and dirty it back up. So instead, she has resorted to leaving a threatening note, complete with the promise of a throat punch. Yikes!
The Toilet Roll Monster Demands Food!
This parent got super creative after no one would change the toilet paper roll, by making it into a monster requesting to be “fed”. This is an ongoing saga in the homes of many people, whether or not they have children, so this one is definitely up there on the list of excellent and funny reminders!
An Unexpected Note
This young stoner probably had quite the rude awakening after opening their rolling papers only to discover a note from their mom. Many parents would be quite a bit more dramatic than this, so this young person probably got off relatively easy. Hey, at least mom didn’t throw them out!
It looks like teenage Oliver got caught red-handed looking at some risky material online. He is even chastised that his grandmother would be shocked by his Internet History! Luckily for him, his dad is there to coach him in the ways of stealthily navigating the Internet by suggesting he use “Incognito mode”. C’mon Oliver, get with the program!
Picky Eater Nonsense
If you’ve ever dealt with a child who is a picky eater, you probably know that it is near impossible to get them to eat their school lunch. This Dad got creative and modern by using not only a hashtag but also one of the most popular supernatural characters—the unicorn. So make sure you don’t kill any unicorns and finish your sandwich, kids!
Spelling Is Important
This parent decided to make fun of their kid a bit for their misspelling of the word “handle”. Instead of the proper spelling, the word Handel was used, like the famous baroque composer from the 1700s. Something tells us that with a parent like that, this kid will turn out just fine!
Parents’ Night In
Sometimes, you just need a little alone time. These parents were willing to go to desperate measures to ensure they actually got some sleep! With detailed instructions on the dos and don’ts, it sounds like this Mom covered everything. Now let’s just hope the brother and sister were actually able to get along!
People Of Wal-Mart
Wal-Mart is a store of many wonders. It has a little bit of everything and sometimes that can entail both the good and the bad. This mom is definitely a bit afraid of the bad side of Wal-Mart which is why she left a prayer request for her kids while going out on her errand. Duly noted, Mom!
Clean The Lint
This one is a bit scary. The note reads, “When I grow up, I’m gonna be a dryer fire!” Yikes! This is a rather large amount of dryer lint, and it needs to be regularly changed, lest you actually start a fire in your house. Hopefully, these kids learned this lesson!
No Playing Around
Unfortunately for this child, they missed curfew and in this household the consequences are strict! Instead of being allowed inside, the kid has the option of sleeping on the porch. The parent even mentions they have generously provided a blanket which might not happen next time. Hopefully, the lesson was learned the first time around.
This mom utilized an excellent meme of Xena the Warrior Princess in order to get her point across. It reads, “I’m not your slave!” And in smaller print, “Pick up your dirty socks and put them in the hamper!” Hopefully Xena’s angry face did the trick to finally get the point across.
The note here states that this Mom drank her kid’s Fireball (a cinnamon liquor), which aided her in writing a sermon. Apparently, Mom is a minister. Even better is that she left a note on a Hangover 3 notepad, a film all about imbibing in alcohol. This is definitely a church service we wouldn’t want to miss!
Cough Medicine Plea
This poor mom is clearly suffering through cold and flu season. Sometimes the medicine prescribed is quite strong so she felt the need to make sure her kids knew “if they found her dead”, she did not commit suicide! This mom definitely has one dark sense of humor! We hope that her cough cleared up!
The Dreaded Note Home
Unfortunately, this teacher had to send a note home that was probably not a happy one to write. A little girl named Demi managed to cut off a lock of her hair. Her poor teacher saved the bit of hair and wrote a note home with an apology. We hope the missing hair wasn’t in noticeable place!
Check The Pockets
This teacher had to send home quite the interesting school note. It turns out this little girl made friends with a worm and refused to abandon it. The teacher tried to give the parents a heads-up by noting the worm was still in her pocket. Let’s hope the worm ended up back in the ground where it belongs.
This teacher sent home a note after a little girl called someone a “Hanzo Main” after he took her pencil. Although the teacher had no idea what that meant, she knew the girl was definitely not happy with the other student. As it turns out, the little girl’s parents are gamers who play the game Overwatch. And indeed, the character Hanzo is often looked upon with scorn. The moment went viral with gamers and parents everywhere because once again it proves that kids do say the craziest things!
