Father Of 4 Daughters Refuses To Sugarcoat Parenting, Takes Internet By Storm

Father Of 4 Daughters Refuses To Sugarcoat Parenting, Takes Internet By Storm - Awkward Galleries

London-based Dad Simon Hooper leads a busy life with four daughters under 10–including one-year-old twins. On his Instagram page father_of_daughters, he chronicles the day-to-day difficulties of parenthood.

Already an operations director for a U.S.-based management consultancy firm, Hooper explains that being a parent is like having many different jobs at once. “A handy man, taxi driver, swimming instructor, tutor, chef, counsellor, human climbing frame, bank, personal shopper and PA,” he told the Huffington Post.

His wife Clementine also documents their parenting adventures on her Instagram account, mother_of_daughters.

“In general my whole account is to show a realistic view of what parenting is like from a parent’s perspective,” he said. “There is way too much sugarcoating when it comes to parents, so I wanted to share what it’s really like and provide a bit of humor at the same time.”

His goal is to help parents feel like they’re not alone, and hopefully make them laugh along the way. Check out the gallery for his hilarious photos and musings on parenthood.

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.

Jesse’s Protest - Family Portrait

“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.”
