If there’s anything that’s universal in this world, it’s parenting.
No matter your culture, background, or family dynamic, parenting woes transcend.
As a standup comedian, I try to get all of my parenting guidance exclusively from other comics (seems right), so I put together 5 of my favorite comedy videos about relatable parenting moments.
