Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

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...

(H/T BuzzFeed) All I can say is this: YIKES. This makes me worry about the future, but hopefully those kids will grow up and remember what their parents did. Learning by your parent's example can work, even if you're figuring out what not to do. These parenting fails are just the worst, LOL... share them with others.
