"You used to be fun. Now you have a baby. "

STFUParents was a blog dedicated to mocking parents who post Too Much Information about their children on Facebook. It's still up, but hasn't updated since 2014.

This blog provides examples of:

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Once these children grow up, they will be very embarassed when their friends see the things their parents wrote on the internet about them.
  • Advertisement:
  • Babies Make Everything Better: Many of the parents have this mentality.
  • But I Can't Be Pregnant!: There was one woman who was talking about how there's no way she could be pregnant. A few days later, a status saying "I preg".
  • Daddy DNA Test: There was one mother who was having a DNA testing party for the potential fathers of her child.
  • Disgusting Public Toilet: There was one where a mother was bathing her poo covered baby in a public toilet.
  • Doting Parent: Most of the parents in this blog qualify, believing their children to be the most amazing things on the planet, to the point where they photograph their child's poo.
  • Gag Censor
  • Hands-Off Parenting: Most parents on here let their children do whatever they want, with no rules or punishment for bad behaviour
  • Hippie Parents: Quite a few appear on here.

  • Insane Troll Logic: What some parents use to justify themselves.
  • It's All About Me: Mommyjacking — where someone replies to a friend's status, turning it about them, their pregnancy, or their children. Especially awful when the persons status is about having cancer or a relative dying.
  • Jerkass: Several parents and children who appear on the blog.
  • Lost My Appetite: Most people do when reading something particularly disgusting, such as kids covered in poo, diaper explosions, and placentas.
  • Mama Bear: Used by mothers as an excuse to justify the most jerkish of behaviors.
  • Momma's Boy: Some of the relationships between mothers and their sons featured here are rather creepy.

  • Morning Sickness: Described in great detail of course.
  • Motherhood Is Superior: There are a lot of people featured in this blog who have these views.
  • Mouthy Kid: The one who called the teacher a bitch (and his mom was proud of him), and others.
  • My Beloved Smother: Some parents seem to be way too overprotective of their children.
  • Never My Child's Fault: The view most parents on the blog have towards their child(ren)'s transgressions.
  • No Sympathy: There's loads of mommyjackers/daddyjackers who offer no support or sympathy for childless friends who lose out on sleep.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Has its own category.
  • Serious Business: Many of the moms shown on the site in regards to anything about their kids.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Nevaeh (Heaven spelled backwards) is quite a common name on here.
  • Spoiled Brat: There is a whole category on the blog for spoiled children.
  • Tinkle in the Eye: One parent referred to this as a golden shower, which is disturbing.
  • Too Much Information: Most of this site runs on too much information; is it really necessary to go into details about your child's explosive diarrhea, or post pictures of yourself giving birth on Facebook?
  • Unfortunate Names: Some of the names given to children on here are hilariously terrible.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Subverted. There is one picture that someone posted on Facebook, that is of a child who had thrown up all over themself in the car.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: There are some very strange names given to children, such as Vagena, Vadgesty, Banjo, and Espn.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Some parents think it's cool to use these letters in their childrens names; for example, Xili, Zayden, and McKynzee
  • You're Drinking Breast Milk: Unfortunately, there have been stories of women putting breastmilk in food.
