What is posted?

Posts range from adorably cute to laugh out loud hysterical to pee your pants funny.

Most posts are about kids ranging in age from 1 to 18. The story or picture could be from just minutes ago or as far off as decades ago. We’ve found that funny is timeless.

Do you have to be a parent to post?

Get real…we know that parents don’t have a monopoly on funny kid stories and pictures. Everyone posts here including teachers, grandparents, friends, neighbors, aunts/uncles, cousins, siblings, babysitters, daycare workers, etc. You’d be surprised what people other than parents overhear kids say.

How are posts approved?

Our sharp team of editors has only 1 criterion, it has to be funny. This can range from heartwarmingly cute to laugh out loud funny to pee your pants hysterical. If you think is humorous post it because chances are you’ll make someone’s day.

Why isn’t my post on the site?

We give each post the same consideration, yet we have to make choices from the numerous posts we receive each day. If you don’t see your post chances are it didn’t make the approval process because it was too long or too few people could relate to it. Don’t worry though because we know funny kid moments are numerous and infinite, so go ahead and post another one.
