What Moms And Dads Said On Twitter This Week Is Funny Because It’s True. April 1, 2023Leave a comment

There’s something fundamentally special about being a young parent today. Perhaps the most special thing about it is the fact that their lives are pretty well-documented on social media. Think about it: You Instagram your twenties, get married on Facebook, and eventually become parents by the steady light of your TweetDeck. By the time I have children, Moms and Dads everywhere will likely communicate with their children and each other using Tweets and Tweets alone. I encourage you now, dear readers, to appreciate the access we have to the thoughts of modern-day parents . They have not only taught themselves *how* to tweet, but have also delighted us by sharing their endless frustration on social media. The parents below have charmingly shared their thoughts about the thankless job of being a parent in the modern age. Leave your support and solidarity in the comments, because these parents need all the help they can get.
