    5. Instagram account shows why unreasonable toddler tantrums are the parents' fault
    The Instagram account “Asshole Parents” has elicited more compassion and laughter than criticisms from fellow parents. Mom blogger Kristen Howerton started the hashtag #assholeparent when posting photos of her kids throwing a tantrum over something completely illogical: new shoes that were missing a light-up feature, not letting them play with knives, or a meal on a pink plate and a pink cup but with an errant yellow straw.
