FEATURED ON PAST EPISODES

Tip 01

Get your kids on a solid schedule. Set exact times for sleeping, eating, playing, shitting (well somethings you can’t schedule). That way you can plan the rest of your day around that.

Tip 04

Your child’s brain is a sponge.  If your kid drops the F bomb at school, that’s probably because you’re dropping F bombs around him or her.  If you do catch them cursing don’t laugh (even though it’s funny), drop the hammer of disappointment on them!  They’ll know then that it’s not F'n cool.

Tip 07

Stop wasting wipes!  You have 4 max! If you use more than that, you’re wasting money that you could spending on your kids or on your damn yourself. 

Tip 10

When you have a newborn or infant and they’re napping or sleeping, don’t try to be too quiet.  If the baby learns to sleep with a little bit of noise, that means the smallest sounds won’t wake them up in the future.

Tip 13

Let your kids have a little bit more fun. When you go on big excursions with the family, be flexible for the kids and stop trying hit up everything YOU want to do.

Tip 16

Read the labels of your kid's food and beverages.  Be aware of the amount sugar in things like fruit snacks, apple juice, apple sauce ex. 

Tip 19

THE HANDOFF: when you can't handle the kids anymore, you just tell your spouse or partner "I need you to take them".  You have to accept the handoff because there are times you are gonna need the handoff too.  Use when needed. 

Tip 22

Rewards!!  Shout out to the Farwells.  Put a giant toy that they want on top of the fridge that they can see and make them work for it.  We used it for potty training. 

Tip 25

Disney dad tip!  Parent sharing or something like that.  One parent goes on the ride with the kid while the other  parent stays behind with your other kid or family member and then Disney will let you switch out and send you back to the front of the line. 

Tip 02

Stop wasting your hard earned money on stupid stuff as a parent. Changing tables? Some parents spend hundreds of dollars! We own a dresser with a pad and it works amazing.  Wipes? The cheaper baby wipes are sometimes better!! Please parents, stop overspending for no reason.

Tip 05

Don’t forget about your spouse.  The foundation of your family is the two of you.  If you don’t take care of each other and spend alone time just the two of you, you are putting the foundation of your family at risk.

Tip 08

Make sure that if you have more than one child you are giving Individual time with each parent. Don't be selfish, spread the love guys!

Tip 11

Slowly teach them to make your day easier.  Weather it’s cleaning things up, letting the dog out, or even grabbing a beer, your kids can make your life so much easier.  

Tip 14

Read the labels of your kid's food and beverages.  Be aware of the amount sugar in things like fruit snacks, apple juice, apple sauce ex. 

Tip 17

Let your child have a mind of their own.  Your kid may not want to be a pro football player or pro baseball player, so don't force them to do things they don't want to. 

Tip 20

Rotate your fruits and veggies!  If they get used to same thing, they will eventually hate them and then you can never get em back. 

Tip 23

Squad Up!! Parenthood is a team effort.  Get together, agree on something and stick to it.  Don't let the kids go from one parent to another looking for a new answer.

Tip 26

There is no better time than now.  If your kid actively wants to do something and you don't have anything else to do, just go for it. 

Tip 03

Take control at an early age.  If you don’t take control of what your kid does early on, that is only going to make things so much damn harder later on.  Set boundaries and show them that you’re the fucking dad or mom and you run this shit, not the other way around.

Tip 06

Stop wasting wipes!  You have 4 max! If you use more than that, you’re wasting money that you could spending on your kids or on your damn yourself. 

Tip 09

Stop making excuses, stop being bitches, regardless of the weather or anything else! Get your kids out and have fun.  If it’s a little colder, bundle them up, if it’s too hot, there are places with AC!! Get out and have fun!!

Tip 12

Get your newborn/infant in their own room ASAP.  Obviously for a few months they will have to be near mommy but after that, it will make everyone’s life better (including the child) if you move the baby to a crib in his/her own room.  

Tip 15

Read the labels of your kid's food and beverages.  Be aware of the amount sugar in things like fruit snacks, apple juice, apple sauce ex. 

Tip 18

NEW TOYS!!  Hide their toys from them for a little while and bring em back out.  It's like a NEW TOY again!!

Tip 21

Recyclable Toys!!  Stop wasting your money on expensive toys!! Cardboard boxes are literally the most exciting thing for kids!

Tip 24

Annual Passes!!! When your family/friend are looking gifts for your kids, suggest they buy annual passes.  God knows we don't need anymore toys!

Tip 27

Your kid has to live with that name!! Yeah you think that name sounded super cool when you named them, but they actually have to live with it!! So don't name your kid Apple.
