The advent of social media has affected our lives greatly. While some say social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter have made our lives a lot easier, there are many who will argue that it has had a demoralizing effect on society as we know it. But perhaps we can all agree there is nothing more important in this world than the well-being and safety of our children. After all they're our future. Right?

Well, according to the mothers in the slide above, there is something far more important than making sure a child is fed or tucked away in bed at night. What might that be? Instagram likes, of course. Whether social media or just careless parenting is to blame is all up to you to decide. But one thing we can all agree on: that selfie probably wasn't worth having your child be left unattended in a bathtub.

Check out some of the most outrageous, head-scratching mom selfies while children are left neglected in the slide above.
