Once you have kids, you no longer have the luxury of spending hours playing video games. That is, unless you get them to play with you…but not really.Read more…

“Home Alone“ might be one of the best holiday movies ever made. So what could ever be better than the movie, you ask? “Home Alone” reenacted by pugs and narrated by children. It’s the magical story of one pug’s adventure to survive Christmas at home when his parents accidentally leave him behind. We’re normally not in [...]
Many of us fantasize about buying a house, getting married, having a baby, then retiring at 65—specifically in that order. In fact, according to recent research, these are the things we define as the American Dream in 2013. But the one thing that all four of these goals have in common is that they’re expensive. So, if you have a major life event you’re saving up for, how do you get your finances in order to achieve it?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: kids are awesome for entertainment. I’m not saying you should have a baby, but one of the perks of having kids is they do really cute things, like leave notes with ridiculous rantings and instructions that make zero sense. They also have a tendency to tell [...]
Grow Glow Snow! It’s not a request, it’s an order, son! Get a bowl! Get some water! Watch it expand to 100 times its starting size, just like a diaper that’s been pissed in*! And, if you’re a real man, turn off the lights and watch that Vanilla Ice…
When kids want something, they’ll ask..and ask…and ask until you cave in. You can teach them to unlearn this annoying negotiation tactic by saying just three words: “Asked and Answered.”
Are you sick of women getting away with being absolute assh*les just because they call themselves a diva? It’s like any woman who misbehaves and acts rude is allowed to say that it’s okay because it’s her personality. It’s just who she is — a diva. We all know that diva doesn’t have the best [...]
Two thoughtful sons came up with a wonderful gift for their mom: they would recreate old childhood photographs of themselves, from 20 years ago, as adults. They would visit the same spots as the pictures, wear similar clothes as their kid self once did…
Back at the Samsung Developers Conference in late October we had a chat with Loud Crow Interactive and got a sneak peek at its latest title. And now, “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” is available for Android — and it’s more immersive than ever.
You’ve got the dialog, music and sound effects from the original 1973 special. (Yes, that was before most of us here were born, too.) The book animation has been revamped and should entertain your young ones even more. And the book itself is narrated by Stephen Shea — otherwise known as Linus.
Check out our preview after the break. It might well be the best $5 you spend this Thanksgiving.
Kids will believe anything so why not let them imagine and wonder and dream and believe in magic? We all have to become semi-responsible, half functioning adults some day so let kids be kids, right? Refe Tuma and his wife certainly think so. Every Nove…
I bet you’ve come across the term “positive reinforcement” before–but honestly, do you know what it really means? Some time back, I decided to jump onto the positive reinforcement bandwagon. Except, it wasn’t really clear to me what it is I should be doing. The worst part? The more I read about it, the more confused I got.
Children’s books are known for the subtle lessons they impart to their impressionable readers. They are full of insights and nuances that veer children in directions of morality. However, what would happen if children were the authors of children’s books? I think we all remember those days when we had absolutely no filter. Like when [...]
It’s always a good day when there’s new Chainsmokers. The mad scientists of the EDM world, remixing anything they can get their hands on and making it gold, have done … Continue reading →
BatDadVine has to be one of the funnier Vine accounts out there. Blake Wilson, father of — by the looks of it — three kids, dons a batman mask and makes short clips of him and his family. Usually you can only see his eyes and hear the raspy batman voice made famous by Christian [...]
Life just got a little better now that Jimmy Kimmel is back with his post Halloween “I ate my kids Halloween candy” prank. There may be nothing more entertaining on this earth than watching kids lose their sh*t. There is no crueler prank you can play on kids than pretending to eat their Halloween candy. [...]
Nothing is holy anymore, not even the wonderful tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, kids out and about in the neighborhood during Halloween were given not only candy, but also anti-abortion flyers. The children themselves are most likely too young to even understand what the flyers are discussing, let alone form their [...]
Halloween should be the one time of the year where it is perfectly acceptable to try and scare the sh*t out of anyone and everyone you can. If you’re a trick-or-treating kid for example, all bets should be off on this day and adults should have the inalienable right to reduce you to tears of [...]
Learning to read is a massive adventure in itself, but discovering the library—a magical place where the stories are plentiful and the books are free—is downright mind-blowing. In an effort to match the fun between the pages, the Mexican branding studio Anagrama transformed the interior of a local heritage site into Niños Conarte, a geometric mountain range of literature.
Tying shoelaces is a tricky skill for little kids with little fingers to learn, but it’s an essential milestone too. A great trick for teaching a child how to do it is to use a jump rope first.Read more…
We often hear or read about people saying that something moved them to tears as an exaggerated form of approval. But with this 10-month-old baby it really seemed like her mother’s singing brought her to tears.
