This Crafty Mom Keeps Her Kids Entertained And Educated With Their Lunch.

Culture
When parents send their kids off to school with their lunches packed, sometimes they'll throw in a note of encouragement or some other small token to make sure they remember how much their parents love them while they're away. For Tokyo, Japan, based mom Maiko Takahashi, the entire meal becomes a blank slate for creative ways to keep her kids entertained, educated and healthy. She frequently crafts cartoon characters and cute animals, but she was also inspired to add in a geography lesson with these beautifully prepared bento-boxed lunches. School yourself with some scrumptious looking Japanese geography! Just looking at these delicious lunches has taught me more about Japan. Facebook Her handiwork is so det...

Great parents will go to any length to protect their children. Whether it's answering the door with a shotgun before their first date or catching a baby free-falling from a window, parents can truly be amazing. Of course, they can be pretty awful too as these 18 so kindly proved. Fortunately, this post is dedicated to the Dads out there with reflexes that would put a cat to shame. When it came to their children's safety, they transformed from normal dad to superdad. Just check them out below (note: could take some time to load on slower connections). 1. Wait for it... 2.

You know those cheap fireworks that you can buy at the grocery store? The ones that fizzle, pop, and, if we're honest, don't seem to do much of anything? After a terrifying accident, this mom has a warning for parents. Stephanie Row purchased the fireworks for a fun evening with her kids. The instructions said to stand at least 15 feet away, but her four-year-old daughter, Maisie, chose a spot well over 30 feet from where the fireworks were being set off. No one expected that she would be put in harm's way. That's when tragedy struck. A rogue firework launched sideways, striking Maisie and embedding itself into her scarf before exploding.

Lack of sleep, tons of headaches, and countless diaper changes usually take their toll on parents.That's why this comedy duo decided to riff on all of that. They pretty much hit the nail on the head with this sketch, and any parents out there will surely appreciate their sense of humor.

From time to time, we all make mistakes. After all, we are human. But, these parents took the "eh, don't worry about it" idea to the next level... and it's kind of awful. These parenting fails are so ridiculous, I'm not sure how they even happened. What were these people thinking? Dangling your kids over fences or ignoring them should never seem like a GOOD idea... 1.) Just wait, little guy, I almost have a high score! 2.) Hamster, babies... same thing. 3.) At least he seems to love watermelon! 4.) I think the answer is "NO." 5.) He doesn't like processed junk? WEIRD. ...
