  • Accepting your parents on Facebook is a big deal for a modern teenager.

    As soon as they click that button, every aspect of their digital life is suddenly open to prying eyes, and every one of their posts are open to awkward parental comments. From gushing compliments on selfies to lightning-fast comebacks on whiny statuses, they never know what their mum and dad will come out with next – and what their friends will see before they have the chance to press delete.

    And, poor loves, it doesn’t even end there. Not only do they live in fear of humiliation on their own pages, they can also see everything their parents share, and while most keep their posts fairly low-key, there are still some parents that haven’t quite learnt the art of a) not oversharing and b) actually using Facebook in the first place.

    Embarassing for the kids? Sure. Hilarious for us? Definitely. Here are 18 of the wittiest (or just downright clueless) parents on the internet – any of them look familiar?
