Two men voluntarily put themselves through a labor pain simulation for Mother’s Day. Through electrode simulation, the guys were able to get a sense of what it was like to have labor contractions. Their wives looked on as they grunted in pain and deservingly high-fiving each other because yeah, this shit is pretty funny.
While being a parent looks like a hard job, there are a few perks that come along with it. Besides the unconditional love and personal growth, parents are also allowed to become the ultimate troll when it comes to raising kids. For example, I totally plan on dressing my future kids up in horribly embarrassing (but cute!) animal costumes every day. I mean, why do they only get to be mini-penguins on Halloween? They should be mini-penguins ALL THE TIME.
Or you can watch how this current dad trolls his four-year-old kid while he takes advantage of another perk of parenthood: playing in the ball pit. I can’t wait to see this kid grow up and totally owning his dad with pranks. It’ll be their form of father and son bonding. Just remember to hit record and upload to YouTube please.
Coachella Rave Dad has got moves for days, no doubt overshadowing the presence of another Coachella father, Clint Eastwood, who was at the festival with his daughter. Watch as he grooves with the best of what the festival has to offer. GET THEM GLO-STICKS OUT, BOB! IT’S TIME TO DANCE! Oontz, oontz, oontz, oontz, oontz, oontz…

Matthew Hodge’s “Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents” is a hilarious example of online contest going right. Sponsored by the Sydney Symphony, the Symphony’s fans were invited to change the lyrics to the opening chorus of Carmina Burana with the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs singing the winning lyrics.
Every line of the song sounds like something my mom would be yelling at me. I also don’t understand how everyone in the choir can keep a straight face. I would’ve been on the floor by the fifth line.
Prepare to bawl your eyes. Because the following letter will probably be the sweetest thing you will see today:
FCKH8.com, an equal rights organization, first posted the letter to Facebook on Friday morning. In the note, the father explains that he overheard his son Nate talking on the phone with his boyfriend about coming out. But the father tells him he already knew and that he never cared.
“I’ve known you were gay since you were six,” the father writes. “I’ve loved you since you were born.”
This note brings a few tears in my eyes because all parents should be accepting of their children through and through. Unfortunately, this is still not the case.
Bravo Dad! Your PostScript at the end is also adorable.
In another edition of “Parenting: You’re Doing It Right,” game developer Mike Mika hacked Nintendo’s Donkey Kong so his three-year old daughter could play as Pauline and save Mario.
According to the video description, Mika was prompted to make the switch after his daughter was bummed out upon learning she couldn’t play the girl characters in Donkey Kong. What a dad to do but spend his night hacking the game to switch the characters around? Amazing.
Mika even uploaded the patch so others can save Mario as Pauline. But seriously, where was this as a kid? Maybe I wouldn’t have hated Princess Peach much less if I could’ve saved myself instead of waiting for Mario. And maybe my default character on Mario Kart might actually have been Peach instead of Toad and I wouldn’t be swearing so much at Peach whenever I play. Seriously, this would’ve cleared up so many video game anger issues I have.

I always love it when parents introduce their kids to music they enjoy. Because instead of listening to the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” a couple hundred times, having them appreciate the musical tunes of ABBA or The Beatles can make car rides a fun, family affair!
While I’m not entirely sure if Korn is appropriate, it sure seems like these parents are doing just fine in raising their kids. Considering that kids never really seem to listen to what the lyrics mean, it’s awfully cute to see them trying.
That little boy on the right is insanely adorable. He would make a great lead singer and I imagine him to have an AWESOME HEADBANG!
In another edition of “Parenting, You’re Doing It Right,” one parent penned a letter to her daughter explaining why the Tooth Fairy wasn’t able to deliver her reward. Unfortunately for Emily, her room was just too messy for the Tooth Fairy to find and exchange Emily’s tooth for a cash prize.
The parents are awesome for not only:
1) keeping the Tooth Fairy alive and well in their daughter’s eyes and
2) throwing in some parenting along the way
Here’s the letter in full:
Let’s take this adorable duet on the road! Our favorite Muppet song, “Mahna Mahna” has a new cover and we love it!
Proud papa, Jesse Teeters, shares a precious moment with his two-year-old cutie pie. Their YouTube performance is summed up as Jesse’s “greatest achievement.” Now this is man is a prime example of good dad. But what exactly makes a good mom and dad you may ask?
Well, there’s this:

“Dina felt ambushed by Matt,” a family friend told PopEater after speaking with Lohan. “She was surprised how many tough questions he asked.”
Apparently Dina thought the conversation would be focused on Judge Marsha Revel’s alleged mishandling of her daughter’s case. Instead the conversation was focused on the public image of Lindsay, and Dina’s parenting skills.
“She didn’t understand why [Lauer] kept asking her those other questions — she knows she’s a great mother and Lindsay will get out of rehab soon,” the friend insists. “Everyone makes mistake, it’s just that Lindsay makes it into the papers.”
Oh wow – how much do we love this! TLC reality stars Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin are being forced to attend parenting classes, reports TMZ.
A Pennsylvania Judge who is working on the couple’s custody case is sending the couple to a course called “Children in the Middle,” a requirement for all parents involved in a custody war in Berks County, PA.
Although the couple do not need to attend the class together, the course must be taken by June 8th. Course content includes fun topics like exposing your kids to loyalty conflicts.
Perhaps this class will be a wake up call for the Gosselins. Jon may learn to stop being a douche and Kate may learn to stop being a bitch. And won’t we all be better off?
