dad does daughters hair

It’s not hard to understand why this picture went viral: 39-year-old Doyin Richards and his kids are pretty damn cute. As Doyin explained on his blog, Daddy Doin Work, his wife usually does his two-year-old daughter’s hair in the mornings but one day she was running late. He was on paternity leave in October, when the picture was taken, and offered to style the girl’s hair. His wife scoffed. So he set up a camera to capture himself with their six-month-old strapped in a pouch and the little girl getting her hair did by Daddy. Once it got picked up by The Good Men Project, it quickly went viral. But a picture like this, while adorable, shouldn’t be extraordinary. It should just be parenting. Keep reading »

5 Ways Parenting Turns You Into A Dumbass

Some Good News For A Change: Teen Birth Rate Hits Historic Low

I don’t really live by mottoes because you can’t boil down life to a few sentences. But there’s a simple set of rules I keep in mind when parenting: feed them, clothe them, respect them, love them … the rest is common sense. I don’t know if I made that up or stole it from an old lady’s commemorative plate, but it helps. Mainly because it’s so simple. You need that simplicity as a parent, because unfortunately, having children turns you into a drooling dumbass. Read five examples on Cracked…

gross things parents do

You don’t have to be a parent very long to realize the universal truth of kids: they’re gross.

this-or-that-mma

This morning, I happened to stumble upon a CNN photo gallery of children partaking in a MMA fight … in a cage. Participants as young as age five are allowed to compete in the Thunderdome, where “they punch, kick, tackle and choke each other,” with their hands and feet.

I asked myself, “How many parents would actually let their kids do this?” The answer: a lot. Keep reading »
