Children do the funniest things and there's no telling what they'll do or say next.
Sometimes they react to an odd situation brilliantly, other times they make the whole thing ten times worse and you wonder how you got stuck with the spawn of Satan.
However one dad has learnt that when the going gets tough - and things get smelly - his daughter will always be there for him.
Clint Edwards, who keeps a dad blog called No Idea What I'm Doing, recently posted a hilarious story on his Facebook page .
The tale starts with the whole family embarking on a road trip to a funeral.
Two hours in to the 12 hour journey, they reach a petrol station and stop to pick up a few things.
Clint's wife and two older children stay in the van, while he and his youngest daughter, Aspen, head into the store.
However things didn't quite go to plan on the shopping trip as Clint was struck with an urgent need to go to the bathroom.
He said: "We b-lined into the restroom, making it just in time. I had no choice but to take my four-year-old into the stall with me."
However, the youngster didn't seem to mind too much.
He explained: "Aspen watched as I struggled, Moana light-up crocs on the wrong feet, blue eyes wide and supportive, hands clapping. 'Good job, Daddy! Good job! You make two poops! Now three poops! I’m four!'
"I'm not sure what happened exactly, if I'd eaten something wrong, or if it was the stress of traveling with kids, but what I do know is that my daughter is the Richard Simmons of pooping."
He added: "I've never felt so supported in anything in my whole life. She commented on the size, smell, and sound. 'Wow!' She said. She commented on my work ethic. 'You're trying so hard!'"
Aspen's encouragement proved amusing to other people in the bathroom, with one man finding it difficult to contain his laughter.
This laughter burst loose as the young girl referred to her dad as a "pooping-farting robot".
Clint continued on to explain how he and his wife, Mel, had often cheered Aspen on in the bathroom while she had been potty training .
To them it had seemed normal, but now the roles were reversed he said it felt "awkward".
When it was all over, Clint's wife couldn't resist asking what took them so long.
Clint, not wanting to tell everyone the truth, responded: "You don't want to know".
But Aspen jumped in and recounted the hilarious events she had just witnessed - with more clapping and cheering for her dad.
Many other parents took the time to share their own embarrassing poop stories.
One mum said: "I take my son into a public restroom, god forbid he hear someone going twosies in another stall, no doubt trying to poo with a little dignity. My son, at the top of his lungs, will go 'MOMMY SOMEONE FARTED! SOMEONE IS POOPING!!!'"
Another wrote: "My three-year-old regularly comments on my hubby's and my bathroom activities, cheering on the efforts. You're so right, that they are just doing what we do to them. And yes, it's awkward as hell when the roles are reversed, even at home."
