Parenting is one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs there is.
It requires patience, kindness, and, most of all, a sense of humor. This hilarious and touching collection
of hundreds of quips, quotes, and anecdotes highlights the funny side of being a parent.
ParentLaughs covers all stages of raising kids, from preparation and pregnancy through raising toddlers,
school-aged children, and teenagers. Witty views on parenting come from parents who are famous for their sense of
humor, including Ray Romano, Erma Bombeck, Dave Barry, Joan Rivers, and other well-known and less well-known moms and dads.
Award-winning professional speaker and therapeutic humor expert "Mr. Jollytologist®" Allen Klein has carefully selected these lighthearted quips, quotes, and anecdotes to keep parents laughing even when the baby is crying.
