Parents will tell you that the love they have for their children is the strongest feeling imaginable. But that doesn’t mean parenting is without lots of frustration along the way. In that spirit, the Instagram page Kids Are The Worst chronicles the epic, hilarious, and weirdly impressive messes children can get into–and that can leave Moms and Dads collapsed in a puddle of their own tears. The page has amassed over 280k followers, so clearly lots of parents can relate to these less-than-glamorous moments. Feel free to have a laugh at the ensuing destruction, but don’t forget KATW’s important reminder that once, all of us were the worst, too.
“We took our daughters to the amusement park, and we let them get dressed up in costumes. The outfits they chose reflected their different personalities.”

“My Mom bought a family portrait for a school fundraiser. My little brother, Jesse, refused to cooperate, so finally my Mom told him he could just turn around. Sixteen-year-old me is in the tie-dye, wishing this was not my family.”
