Tip Jar Top Picks: Parenting Quotes, Tips, and Real Kid Quips!
Tip jar top picks! We’ve got the best parenting quotes, tips, and real kid quips shared by you via our “tip jar” and social media network! Plus a very funny vid by a very funny mom at the end. Enjoy!
Kids are constantly entertaining us with their innocent (filterless) comments and comebacks. So, let’s kick it off with some Real Kid Quips!
Calling your nana “Yoda” is a HUGE compliment in the eyes of a child. Let’s just hope Nana thought so. Lol!
Aww, Mommy is the most beautiful, and, therefore, the “sexy boss.” Too cute! Dad, Alex, blogger at Lucas & Luis is a lucky guy!
Little Alex loves martial arts, soccer, ballet, hiking, and putting Mommy (that’s me) to shame in our 80s freestyle dance battles.
Now for our featured parenting tips!
What worn-out, in desperate-need-of-a-coffee-break parent (A.K.A. all of us) couldn’t use this parenting tip shared by funny dad Bottlerocket?
This next parenting tip was shared with us by ParentTConference.com, building bridges between parent and teacher.
Using everyday life to make sense out of math for your child will pay off now and later. ParentTConference recommends parents make these teaching moments a part of our ongoing conversations with children. And that discussing math with kids in a non-threatening fashion will neutralize the intimidation factor.
Finally, here’s an original parenting quote on keeping calm. May it serve as a soothing reminder between our stolen bathroom and coffee breaks.
And for those of you who have to combine your coffee and potty breaks … we’re still waitin’ on a tip for that.
Thank you to all who contributed to the tip jar and engaged with us on social media. We will be sending you shout-outs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram! Looking forward to connecting with more amazing tuned in parents in the next round! It’s all about sharing, spreading that knowledge, and keeping it all in perspective.
