Bad dads and moronic mums: Shocking pictures of the world”s worst parents and their very unlucky children

If you”ve ever felt embarrassed by your parents, then spare a thought for this lot.

The tragic youngsters are seen with cigarettes dangling from their mouths, guzzling bottles of beer, taped to furniture and left dangling from coat hooks, proving that sometimes mum and dad really don”t know best.

In another shot a young boy is handed a potentially lethal axe while a smiling girl is given a wash, oblivious to the fact she”s been shoved into the toilet bowl.

One truly despicable dad is seen parading his little boy in a Nazi T-shirt while others parents clearly have no concern for their children”s safety leaving them in the most precarious positions.

The collection of shots has been taken from the blog My Parent Is An Idiot.
