This Mom Found A Hilarious Way To Cover Up Her Kid’s Wall Drawing And It’s The Key To Good Parenting

If you have children (or if you’re like me and you’ve had a lifelong gig as a babysitter), you know kids can be a handful. They’re not always going to do what they’re supposed to do — in fact, sometimes they’re going to do things that they definitely know they’re not supposed to do. And trust me, it’s frustrating as hell.

But according to this dad, it’s a lot easier to handle when your partner has a sense of humor. When their kid drew on the wall, she found the perfect way to handle it.

Here is said wall drawing:

Okay, this is perfect. If my future husband doesn’t approve of this method, it’s obvious that we aren’t really meant to be. Humor is obviously the key to good parenting — and also, to a happy life in general.

We can only imagine this child’s next masterpiece.

Honestly, this is parenting done right.

If only my parents would have appreciated my masterpieces when I was still living in their house and taking Sharpies to all their walls. If only. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
