What really happens when dad's in charge
Parenting.com is proud to present the first season of comedy web shorts that, for better or worse, present a dad's-eye view of the playground.
You've always wanted to know what dad gets up to when you're at work and he's watching the kids. Or, to put it this way, maybe you don't actually want to know but feel it's in your child's interest to find out.
Either way, the Lords of the Playground are at your service. Launching today, this new comedy video series explores child-rearing from pop's playground perch. Whether it's discipline in action (check out 'Counting') the thrill of meeting new people ('The Number') or the pitfalls of baby talk ('Babble') with these videos, the Lords will have you rolling on the blacktop. Watch and learn how dad does it.
