Despite the awkward moments kids put their parents through, nine in 10 mums and dads don’t worry about them at all, attributing them to their kids having "personality".
Conversely it appears embarrassment isn’t a one way street, with 50% of parents admitting to purposely embarrassing their own offspring.
The most popular antic is sharing embarrassing stories from their kids’ childhood (50%), while 40% admit to giving their child a big wet kiss in public and even copying their child’s tantrum in public to make them stop.
Pukka Pies spokesperson Lindsay Filmer said: “As a busy mum I’ve experienced a fair few embarrassing moments – and so have my kids!
"I always find that sitting down with my family at mealtime after a crazy day is a great time to laugh about the days’ events.”
