    #33…ok, not cool…
    #27…but this was hilarious!
    #4…also funny! …nobody got hurt…

    • loumannheim

      Guy here in Chicago did #33. Arrested like he should have been. http://chicagoist.com/2011/12/21/man_charged_with

      • Hmm

        Honestly, if the kid agreed, an adult was present, and no one was hurt, how is this any more dangerous or wrong than throwing a projectile at your kid or putting them on a two wheeled vehicle that is notorious for falling over on hard surfaces. 😉

    • Quisp

      looking at the photographer's pj's (lower right corner), I suspect this is more the work of an older brother who got his kid brother to go along with it. "let's try it he said, you'll look just like the mummy he said, it will be fun he said" Older brother: "but Mom, he wanted me to do it, it was his idea!"

    • trixi

      Agreed on #33 the kid looks terrified.

  • adonisallan

    some photos here are just really bad. #7 #18 #21 #24 #33 #34

    • MonkeyMadness

      What's wrong with having a child on a leash? At least he's not running around tearing up stuff or getting hurt.

      • Kids

        I'm going to assume that monkey madness does the leash thing with their kids

        I have two kids, I found just about all of these funny
        Kids can be assholes, so these were funny

        • MonkeyMadness

          You know what happens when you assume.
          I have two kids also and have never had to use a leash, but I know some kids that would benefit from it. I just think it's a good idea especially in a crowd situation. It would be real easy for someone to try and grab a kid and run.

          • Kids

            If somebody grabbed my kid and ran they'd be fucking dead, stay in shape for the kidssssss!!!

            • Emz

              I honestly don't see the problem with #21 It's hilarious. XD

    • McIrish

      People have been arrested for posting pics like #33 this on facebook. True story.

      • Jwhite

        From the looks of the clothes the photographer is wearing I'm guessing older sibling. I doubt anyone is going to jail.

        • Jen

          the pics with the kids holding guns, if they are real arent cool.

          • guest

            I started learning how to shoot when I was 5 years old. If you are brought up around guns and learn to respect them, and what they can do, there is nothing to be scared of. Good for those parents teaching their children about firearms safety. Most of the guns are air guns, but I would be willing to bet the real guns are unloaded, and the pictures staged. No one with half a brain would give a child a loaded gun to play with for fun…that would be really stupid.

            • Jen

              i agree with you. i would like to keep a gun in my house but having a child, it scares me. i had this same conversation with a coworker the other day. she agreed that you should expose them to guns and teach them about them. however, it just scares me. hopefully, my sons father can teach him or my father can.

              • guest

                Buy a gun safe, and make sure your child learns the access code or can get the key. Shooting is a great sport. I shoot a few thousand rounds of ammo a year and love going to shoot at my local club. If you need help teaching your child to shoot, you may be able to go to a local gun club, they may have firearms classes that you can take as a family.

    • Rick

      The only thing really wrong with #7 is no ear protection for the kid, and that's assuming the gun is actually being fired. #18 is outright stupidity. # 21 I guarantee the kid is saying "Wheee!" #24 if the kid is going to just lay down on the ground for no apparent reason, then they are apt to do anything. #33 was most likely the kids idea. #34 my daughter would have asked me to do that. My response would likely be a kinder version of What the hell is wrong with you?

    #38 is a legitimate chair/carrier. It's like a back-pack with a built-in seat for small children. My dad used to carry me around in it when we went hiking with the family.

    • DavidZH

      I agree, nothing wrong here. It's like a throne for babies!

      • Kiki

        True dat! I have one & stared long and hard at the pic cause I thought I was missing something. Nice try Chive!

    • adonisallan

      Lyra is right. That is a hiker's carrier. Like this one: http://bit.ly/TbYc6r

      • Ash

        That is CHILD ABUSE, are you freaking KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Ted Logan

          It even has a sun visor to protect the kid from exposure. This is probably one of the most expensive carriers out there (not that that's "proof" of anything) but I can assure, this is definitely NOT abuse in anyway.

        • 5280Blazin

          You're an idiot, no offense

          Ash, I can't tell if you're a troll or an idiot

          • Ash


    • Tek257

      I agreed, it a seat for kids that keep the sun off them.

    • gma

      Yes a legitimate product, my friend carries her daughter in one on morning walks – brand "kanga-kid" (in japan)

    • Mr_Cellophane

      My kids both spent many hours in the "Bug Pack" on hiking trips….I just hope they make one big enough that they can carry me when I can't hike anymore.
      Ours was made by Kelty

    • JustaGuy

      Nothing wrong here – I had the Kelty Explorer and the little buggers spent hours in it – they're great, extra bags to carry stuff, kick stand so you take them off and stand it up. I even had a rear view mirror dangling from the shoulder strap so I could look back and check them out – usually when they fell asleep and were drooling on the back of my neck or fascinated tugging on my hair/ears 🙂

    • dull

      Yup. My boy loves his. I'd rather not admit how long I spent looking at it to spot the WTF.

    • Dalton

      Yep, Deuter Kid Comfort III. I have that same model and love it… kids love it and its actually comfortable enough for them to fall asleep in.

    • steve

      I think the real wtf is he put his into croc's… sad days!

    • SingleBrokeFab

      My dad had one too and I loved it! He used to take me camping/hiking all the time. There's nothing wrong with this.

    • Mark

      I thought I was the only one that was looking for what was wrong in this photo. Those backpack seats are great for hiking or trips to amusement parks.

    • Dan

      No fail there. Even has a nice little shade so the kid doesnt get burnt. Good parenting!

    • Jackson

      Nothing wrong with it. I guess the person that posted it thought the kid was just sandwiched between the guys back and the backpack.

    • swedcarp

      Bad call Bob…Bad call….I was about to flip if no one else knew about the wonderfulness of kid carriers. My daughter loved riding around in the one I have…she's 5 now, so I made her hike with her own legs while we were in Yosemite last month…she hated it. She wanted to be carried the entire time.

    • sithney

      moar mom, please

      Teach a kid to not be afraid of the gun, but DAMN, teach them how to properly handle one, and if you yourself don't know, don't hand one to a kid. Loaded or not.

  • Hendo

    #24 Worst kind of parents ever!!!!

    • dkellyb

      I don't know, in retrospect I'm glad my mom had a "leash" on me and my brother. I don't remember any of that, but I bet I would have remembered getting hit by a car because we'd run all over the place as soon as we had a chance. We only needed a split second, too.
      Nothing wrong with trying to keep your kid alive. A shock collar would be worse.

      • Not a seagull

        I agree, loads of kids need these because they can bolt faster than you can – they do so without knowing the potential consquences. It gives them the chance to wander about (or lay on the floor) without getting into trouble of any kind.

    • MonkeyMadness

      How do you see that as bad?

      • Hmmm

        If parents would parent then they wouldn't rely on a leash to keep their kids safe. If parents would teach their kids not to jump around like little monkeys on acid in the first place these things wouldn't be needed.

        • anguish

          You obviously aren't a parent..

          • Hmmm

            Actually anguish I am a proud parent of 2 beautiful kids. And they have been taught respect from day one. I'm not saying I'm a perfect parent or that I've never thought that a leash would come in handy. I've just never thought of them as a good idea. Different opinions. KCCO.

            • assman

              just because you lucked out and had some mild mannered children does not mean it is potentially that way for all children and that the deciding factor is the parenting. Yes parents have an influence, but there are many sociologists and psychologists that have postulated that the structure for ones personality and behavior are present at birth. So one could be the best parent at "parenting" (as you called it, a broad verb that I challenge you to define) and the kid could still be a little hellion and a leash could help in a crowd. Or maybe you suggest that they just don't go out at all? KCCO. (adding that at the end of a rebuttal takes away from its meaning a little don't it?)

              • Hmmm

                I am in no way saying that I'm a better parent than most or that my kids are perfect. My sister is a child psychologist and has a son with SEVERE ADHD. I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong and to each their own. I was out of line with my initial comment. Not all parents are the same and no two kids are the same. I can completely understand that for some parents a "leash" is a viable option due to the child's surroundings, temperament, situation etc. I'm honestly sorry if I offended anyone with my opinionated comment. And I said KCCO as a reminder, not to further my point. The chive's the best community on the Internet and I'm proud to be a part of it. My comment wasn't very chive like. Again, apologies to anyone I offended.

            • SocialLubricant

              I was pretty smug after my first kid. He is the most mild mannered, respectful kid I've ever met. My wife and I had sore shoulders from all the patting ourselves on the back that was going on. Then we had our daughter. Good lord almighty. We're finally getting her reigned in a bit, but the bottom line is that some kids are going to be a serious challenge regardless of how they are raised.

              All that being said, the only time one of my kids had a leesh on was when my mother decided to buy one without my knowing (for the aforementioned mild mannered boy, no less). She thought it was cute. I wanted to hang her with it.

          • keystone183

            You are obviously one of those parents who's kids are out of control because you don't know how, or are unwilling to discipline them, and instead choose to blame it on something easy like, ADD, or, "they're just kids".

          • oldraven

            I'm a parent, and I agree 100%.

            "Woah, woah woah! What are you doing? Get over here and calm down. If you don't stay here, we have to go home, and next time you won't come with us."

            Pretty simple. And it works great with my kids, who are happy children that play hard IN THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT. I never put my kids on any leash except the social one that my wife and I use to form their behavior.

    • denyan

      I've got three kids – keeping track of them requires having my head on a swivel. There were plenty of times that i wanted a leash for one or two of them. the kid lying on the ground? that's just a kid throwing a tantrum because he's not getting what he wants. Again, mine have done that. Generally, that lead to leaving wherever we were and the kids going to bed when we got home. I've left full baskets of groceries in the store because of tantrums.

      • Hmmm

        I agree denyan. I've done the exact same thing. If my child is having a fit over not getting cookies and won't calm down I don't see why everyone else in the store should have to listen to it.

    • tmpy

      This is a 5 min walk from where i work. They are literally only meters from a busy ferry terminal, bumper to bumper traffic, a sheer drop off the wharf to the water, and a casino. No, all much better places for a child.

  • matt

    #1 I can see why this is bad parenting, she doesn't have any hearing protection.

    • spliggs

      Why would she need hearing protection, she just finished cleaning it?!

      Why would she need hearing protection? Its an air rifle.

        Agreed, nothing more than a BB gun.

        Then at least thrown on some eye protection. I only hope that it wasn't ready to fire or even loaded and pops was looking for a photo op.

    • Guesty guestoferson

      Teaching poor skills. A few assumptions but basically the deer should should have been gutted right after the shot; based on their clothing, I'm guessing it's not very cold, so that's going to be some sour deer meat there. Other than that, nothing wrong in the parenting. This is what food looks like before the little packages in the store, and a swing set has other uses.

      • moonshinetonight

        theres a technique to gut hit while hanging up..and maybe he just shot it not even 30 min ago.

  • MonkeyMadness

    And what would those charges me? How would having your child on a leash be considered child abuse? Would you rather let them run wild and hurt themselves or someone?

    • penguin slayer

      i do this shit to my god children all the time! for some reason they love it !

    • kcarpenter

      I don't think it's child abuse, but a bit degrading. The kid isn't a dog and if you discpline your kids, they listen and don't act like a bunch of fools there is no need for them to be tethered to you.

      • JohnnyDingo

        Degrading, are you fucking kidding me. Kids don't know the meaning of being degraded they pull their own feces out of their nappies.
        Also Kids are really fucking stupid quite often and no matter how well behaved they are they do dumb shit often.
        If your children don't act like fools then there is probably something wrong with them, put reigns on toddlers and when they decide to do that really stupid thing right by the road you get to discipline them after instead of going to hospital.

        • DeepestBlue

          You're obviously completely ignorant if you think children can't be trained before they damage themselves.

          • JohnnyDingo

            you are obviously a complete moron, all research points to the facts that children act spontaneously, even the best parenting and training can't override a childs normal behaviour.
            Here is a quote from someone smarter than me, and you apparently.
            "Starting at about 18 months your child should understand you when you say the oven is hot or the knives are sharp, but understanding and being able to resist the temptation to touch are two very different things. "The concept of consequences doesn't kick in until age 3 or 4 years," says Traci B. Pitts, a child psychologist in Reno, Nevada.

            So having a 3 year old in places like near roads is actually pretty good parenting, Ofc it depends on the individual child.

  • MonkeyMadness

    #15 It's about time, that kid looks a little old to still be in the womb. At least she's capturing the miracle of child birth on camera.
