The Facebook Reactions All Parents Should Have

By Haylie PriceWednesday 2 Mar 2016

Facebook recently unveiled a new set of emotions for us to help describe to friends our reactions to their status update. Instead of just ‘liking’ something, we can now use the extra emojis to love, laugh, gasp, smile, cry or get angry.


However, are these really enough to describe the reactions to the everyday life of a parent? We’ve come up with a few extra ‘parents only’ emoticons that we think Facebook should add…

Kids are fighting, don’t know which side to pick.
My spouse got up early with the kids and let me sleep in.

Heavenly Father, please give me patience to get through today.

The kids need help with their algebra homework.

Got the house to myself!

My child just told me they loved me, all is forgiven.

What other reactions/emotions do you think Facebook should add?
