Being a kid is tough. Sure, you have no real responsibilities like paying rent or heading to work every day, but there are plenty of other things to throw tantrums about…such as when your mom says you’re not allowed to spend the night on the trampoline.
Back in 2013, Greg Pembroke of Rochester, New York, started a Tumblr called Reasons My Son Is Crying and inspired parents to take photos of their crying children who are upset for ridiculous reasons. What started with stories from Pembroke’s two sons Charlie and William has now expanded into a global network of parents with children who just can’t handle not being allowed to pet the elephant or finding out Darth Vader was the bad guy.
The truth hurts, kids. It’s probably better if you just learn that now and get used to it.
Check out some of the funniest photos parents have snapped while their kids were throwing tantrums along with the meaning behind their madness below.
