As any parents knows, children aren't adorable 24 hours a day and there are times when they can leave you wanting to tear your hair out in frustration.
But some frazzled mothers and fathers from around the world have found a way to deal with the pain of cleaning marker off the wall, or the dreaded "poonami", with a spot of "child shaming".
These parents have proven the old adage that if you didn't laugh you'd cry by posting pictures of their children with a sign detailing their misdeeds online, with hilarious results.
One cheeky youngster and the family dog got into double trouble when he 'pooped on the carpet' in her room and she tried to "clean it up".
Another baby was put on the virtual naughty step for drawing all over the kitchen in black crayon, while a fellow naughty child dumped pink glitter and glue all over her sleeping baby brother and the dog as she wanted them to look like princesses.
