REALLY FUNNY PARENTING ADVICE
Our favourite comedians share what it takes to be a great dad.
“Parents are burning kids out on structure. I think all children should have three hours of daydreaming every day. Just daydreaming. . . If you want to know how you can help your children: Leave them the f**k alone!” —George Carlin
Accept That You’ll Embarrass Them
“I think every kid thinks their dad is goofy. Even Johnny Depp’s kid must be like, ‘Oh god, my dad with those freakin’ scarves. This isn’t a pirate ship; it’s a supermarket, Dad.’” —Judd Apatow
Be Your Own Man
“I’m not ‘Mom’s assistant.’ That’s depressing, just waiting for her to write you a list, walking around a store staring at it, and calling her from the cereal aisle to make sure you got the right thing. Be a man. Make your own list.” —Louis C.K.
Celebrate Their Achievements
“My dad would treat spelling bees like athletic events. I’m in the middle of spelling some shit, all I heard was ‘Alriiiight. Yeeeeeah! My son’s spelling the shit out of these motherf**king words!’” —Kevin Hart
