Usually, it’s the adults in the family who are often disappointed in the younger family members. But now, dogs want to be in control. Every day, more and more dogs are learning how to give their humans a look of disapproval. After all, they’re sick of their parents not giving them table scraps or giving their human kids more attention.

For years, humans have shown frequent disapproval when their dogs misbehave, but now it’s time for dogs to get back at them. In fact, so many dogs have mastered disapproving glares that #DisapprovingDogChallenge is now trending on Facebook. Here are some of the best photos.

It’s true that dogs are learning how to give disapproving glares, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love us. If anything, it just means that they love you so much that they want to make silly facial expressions just like you. They want to have a better way of letting us know that they’re not happy with our actions. Although these puppy faces are certainly more adorable than intimidating!
