They’re your infants, your toddlers and your *gulp* teenagers but they’ll always be your baby. You both love them unconditionally and wish they’d shut up once in a while all at the same time. Don’t worry that’s totally normal.

Lunarbaboon is back to shower us in his fatherly wisdom.

Lesson 1: Unconditional Love

Its should go without saying. Your kids will love whomever they love. But unfortunately, not everyone is this cool. Accept it, love it, it’s not a big deal.

Lesson 2: Meaningful Compliments

Smash the stereotypes, it’s 2018. Our little girls are engineers, doctors and CEO’s. Pretty and princess just isn’t going to cut it anymore.

Lesson 3: Sharing

Have yours hit the “mine” stage yet? It’ll annoy you for a while and you may even feel you’ve instilled the wrong values. Remember sharing is caring. Hand over those bills and see if they still call everything ‘mine’!

Lesson 4: Support Them

If you’re like me, every little thing they do will be an absolute miracle in your eyes. It’s not a bad thing. You drew a crime scene? Oh my goodness, how precious!

Lesson 5: Don’t Raise An Asshole

Easier than it sounds. It’s not Freudian psychology, just set a good example. Love, acceptance and an open mind will give them a good start.

Lesson 6: Time to Yourselves

Oh Lord knows you need it! Get it where you can. Your tactics may be a little sneaky but needs, must. Send them hiding and taking a nap.

Lesson 7: The Jokes Gotten Old

Stop the labels. End the divides. We’re all one. Don’t let your kids fall victim to the age old “It’s just a joke…” line. They may just turn out to be assholes.

Lesson 8: Powerful Women

Teach our sons and daughters about powerful role models. Ms Curie would approve, if it wasn’t the radium thing…

Lesson 9: You Can’t Win

The cycle is repetitive, the mess is a pain in the ass. Leave it, they won’t be little forever, let the house be messy. Join in with the play instead.

Lesson 10: All The Time In The World

And finally, forget the brand name clothes, the newest consoles or the coolest holidays. In the end all that matters is your time. Give it in abundance and you’ll do just fine!
