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 away 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.
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!
Will Do Chores For Wifi
This clever parent changes his household's wifi password every day. They only tell their kids the password after they've completed all of their chores.
Sounds like an awesome parenting tactic to me. Soon the kids are going to get smart though, and they're going to change the password before their parent can get to it.
A Very Happy Birthday To You
Poor McKenna, first her mother gives her a name like McKenna (no offense every other McKenna in the world) and then she tells her to shovel snow on her birthday, and then she peaces out to Madison.
Savage, mom. Real savage. A "have a great day" would have been nice.
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!
Thanks For The Info, Mum
This note is a work of art. It is so beautifully written that I could weep. I love that she omitted the possessive pronoun before "bum." It doesn't matter whose bum, just bum in the general sense.
All bums are created equal. Also, the rhyme with "bum" and "mum" is just delightful.
She Brought You Into This World And She Can Take You Out Of It
How would you feel if you spent an hour and a half cleaning a kitchen only to have a bunch of hooligan children undo all of your hard work? Not very good, I bet.
The little heart at the bottom is a nice touch. She might cut you, but she'll always love you.
Dad Vs. Mom
One thing is for sure, both mom and dad love their exclamation marks. If exclamation marks were a form of viable currency, Eric would be rolling in it.
Mom and dad seem to disagree about what kind of trouble their son could get into while they're away— or maybe mom just doesn't want to think about it.
The Least Absorbant Napkin Ever
Does she expect her son to wipe his face with a piece of paper? Because that may qualify as cruelty to children. If the note wasn't so cute, I might have reported her myself.
A piece of paper is not a napkin. It just spreads the dirt around.
Thou Shall Not Waste Food
I hope it's not a tuna sandwich. If you don't put lettuce in between the tuna and the bread, that sandwich is going to get soggy real fast.
Honestly, kid, if it's gross I would just give it to one of your friends who will eat anything, and tell your dad that you ate it.
Time To Take Some Responsibility
Moms don't exist to clean up your messes. Please act like a human being and clean up after yourself when you make a mess.
Also, don't complain about having to clean up for yourself. That's what people do, not just moms. Keep reading for a mom who is about to venture into dangerous territory.
Mom Is Cold As Ice
So I think we've established that kids are pretty dumb. But are they too dumb to know how to make ice? Apparently, they are.
It's a recipe with one ingredient and what is pretty much one step, which is not a recipe at all, by a lot of people's standards.
Let Sleeping Babies Lie
Every person with a new baby should take a cue from this mom and post threatening notes on their front door.
Sometimes you just need a piece of paper and a few colored markers to really drive the message home. Read on for a mom who is just looking out for her daughter's best interest.
She Was Watching Her Parents' Farm For The Weekend...
I wonder how many times this girl's mom has just chucked a dead chicken across the street. Is there a pile of dead chickens over there? I'm pretty sure those "do not toss chicken carcass" rules exist for a reason— but thanks for the heads up, mom.
I guess now we know why the chicken crossed the road...
Just Looking Out For Your Future
If you need your mom to remind you to take birth control, maybe you should take a step back and examine your choices— just a thought.
Hopefully, this is just a case of an overprotective, overbearing mother, and not of an irresponsible teenager. Somehow I doubt that, though.
Tiffany Is Going To Be A Great Mom One Day
Tiffany has got this note writing thing all figured out. She's basically a passive aggressive parent in training.
I can't wait for her future kids to be on the receiving end of her outstanding note writing abilities. Also, Tiffany's sibling, please feed your fish. Don't feed him to the cat.
This Gives Me Nightmares
This is a truly cursed image for lots of reason. The thought of accidentally brushing your teeth with Vagisil is gross enough.
The fact that this note was left by a dad is even worse.
This Note Doubles As a User Manual
Sometimes notes from mom and dad double as a user manual. In this case, mom and dad really want their kids to step up and start helping around the house, but don't want them to destroy anyone's clothes.
In these kid's defense, doing your own laundry can be challenging. There are like 50 different settings that all seem to do the same thing.
I'm Watching You
This mom is clearly trying to her hardest to get her kids to put their dirty clothes in the hamper. She even thinks adding a menacing face will help her cause.
While she's trying to make it sound like she means business, this mom is probably a softy at heart who had to try extra hard to keep herself from adding "I love you" to the bottom.
This Mom Is Smart
This mom is smart. She knows you won't forget your phone, but you will forget that cake she spent four hours making.
This note is short and foolproof. At least, we hope.
Mom Has Had It With Your Bathroom Usage
This mom knows exactly what her son has been up to in the bathroom. We may have bleeped out what it was, but you know it wasn't showering that this guy was doing in there.
Needless to say, this mom is tired of having crusty towels in her bathroom and is about to take some drastic measures to stop it.
Mom Knows You Ain't Slick
This is why you just don't let your parents do your laundry. This person may have put the clothes in the wash themselves, but Mom took it upon herself to fold them. That's when she found a certain surprise in the pocket.
She handled it with perfect sarcasm and if anything, she's more concerned about where you put her clear tape!
Mom And Dad Know What You're Up To, Joshua
Looks like Joshua is having a little too much fun after hours. If anything, he should perhaps lock his doors if he's going to sneak around his parents.
It's surprising that he got away with sneaking more than one girl into his room in the first place, which is probably why his parents don't seem that mad. They just want him to stay safe out there.
Don't Be Mistaken
A lot of times we're touched when our parents leave us kind notes with our lunches, but this mom wants to make it clear that she doesn't care.
She just wants to remind you to pick up some napkins on the way home. Have fun wiping up your banana mouth with this heartless piece of paper.
Mother Knows Best
This mother knew that her child would be upset to find their secret chocolate stash eaten up. But she only did it because she care's about her child's health.
At least she was being honest about what she thought. We can't say that the conversation that happened after this was found was a good one.
Don't Be Alarmed!
Imagine waking up home alone only to find a strange man with a machete roaming around the outside of your house. That's exactly what Dave was about to wake up to.
Luckily, his parents thought ahead and figured that Dave would be alarmed. But don't worry, it's just Steve.
A Subtle Hint
It can be pretty annoying for families that have someone who uses the cars without filling them up. Sure, they may get away with it at first but eventually, the rest of the family catches on.
That's why Sarah got this note from her mother about their car Diesel, which takes diesel fuel if you must know.
Dad's Dramatic Note
This person says they purchased a hatchet but didn't put it away when they got home. The next morning, they found their hatchet with this friendly note.
This was definitely a convoluted way to let someone know not to leave their stuff lying around the house. But at least Mr. Schmidt knows a thing or two about hospitality.
When You Have Boys Who Don't Listen
This person shared this note that their dad wrote to their brothers. It seems that no matter how many times Dad tells them not to use a certain socket, they still do it.
Maybe a note will help them remember what they shouldn't be doing! Dad is tired of hearing you say "sorry."
A Strong Dose Of Reality
This dad left a kind note in his child's lunch. We bet that when this kid opened his lunch he wasn't expecting this existential lecture from his father.
Maybe his father was feeling emotional that morning. Or perhaps he was just trying to be real with his kid before someone else was.
