I Hate You, Mom & Dad

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s easy to hate your parents when they embarrass you on film.

Parents don’t always know what’s best for their kids, and IHateMyParents.tumblr.com proves it.

The online photo gallery shows pictures of kids put in the most humiliating situations by their loving – though clueless – parents, like one little boy forced into a glittery unicorn costume, numerous children dressed as Star Wars characters with their geeky dads, and one chubby kid crying his eyes out on a carousel.

Creator Julia Segal says everyone has experienced parental shame at one point, adding, “Somewhere there’s a cave drawing on a wall of a kid being embarrassed by their dad.”

Segal fears going through her own childhood photos because she knows there’s a picture of her “too old in a bath with my brother.”

Though most parents unintentionally humiliate their kids, Segal says some do embarrass them on purpose for laughs, which she doesn’t recommend.
