Here’s some honest, real and funny advice for those moments when it seems impossible to laugh and all new parents want to do is cry.
One of my favorite questions I’m asked at least once a week is “any funny parenting advice for new parents?” My first reaction is to laugh and respond “yes, say goodbye to your life” but that always seems so cruel. But seriously HAHAHA their life is over.
I’m honestly not sure of the reason I’m asked so frequently for advice for new parents. Sure, I’ve got two kids, chronicle my experiences as a parent on this website and I’ve even written a book for new dads but I’m not sure if I’m in the position just yet to give advice. Honestly, I don’t know if any parent can really give advice. Here’s why — every kid is different. EXTREMELY DIFFERENT.
So, while I can’t give specific and practicaladvice to new parents, I can offer them (I mean WARN THEM) about many of the issues coming down the line.
All 400+ of these parenting tips could be considered funny parenting advice for new parents. But just a warning — “do as I say and not as I screwed up.”
Hopefully, new and veteran parents will find some of the advice in these notes helpful. If not, you’re on your own.
Honestly, when it comes to parenting, you’re always on your own! But that’s half the fun.
The other half is snickering when people ask for advice.

Heres some honest and funny parenting advice about raising young kids.
Raising young kids is much like playing golf.
A golfer can take 100 bad swings, and when all hope is lost, he nails that one perfect shot. This gets him through the next 100 awful shots.
The same rule applies to a parent. A parent can make countless mistakes and the kids can be intolerable.
Until that one moment that makes it all worthwhile.
Another similarity between parenting and golf theres a ton of cursing involved.
