Parenting is hard. It’s a challenge that we all face, and it can feel like there are no solutions out there to help us. But this isn’t true! This blog post will give you parenting hacks from parents who have been in your shoes–happy hacking! Let your kids help with chores. This will teach them responsibility and make them feel like they’re a contributing member of the family. You can also assign certain days for each type of chore some even have different times! Teach children to be assertive by standing up for themselves in a calm manner when there is conflict (especially at school). We want our little ones to know that if someone else’s words or actions bother them, it’s okay not to stand idly by while their feelings are hurt! Make sure your child has time in their day where they don’t need to talk about anything other than what they want to do, so we allow space for creativity and imagination as well as self expression.

We Are the Weirdos Mister: Parenting Hacks – we are the weirdos mister, from living in a big city to parenting our kiddos–we’re all over it! We have hacks for you too! Check back often as we share them with you. If there is anything specific that you want us to talk about or know of any great resources please let us know and we’ll get ‘er done :) With love, your neighbor(s) from down the street ;) Baby Girl & Dad (aka Bee Dad aka Bee loves Lulu aka BGLU) Written by two people who live together in Brooklyn NY, both parents of a little girl, and we are the weirdos mister.
We blog about our travels as parents living in NYC and Brooklyn to parenting life with a toddler. One of us is Bee Dad aka Bee loves Lulu aka BGLU (aka Dad) and one of us is Baby Girl or Mommy (not creepy at all). We always wanted kids but while we were busy doing other things it happened–close together! And now that they’re here we have found ourselves navigating some new waters since neither of us had children before this so there’s lots to learn for sure. So take what you need from these posts as well as know that we don’t claim any expertise on anything because parenting is funny like that. Always changing and always a surprise.
Have we mentioned that we are the weirdos mister? Well, now you know!
We have no parenting hack to offer but if I had to share with you one thing it would be this: kids don’t come with instructions–at all. You’ll figure out your way as time goes on so just do what feels right for you in any given moment because there’s nothing wrong with doing things differently than everyone else (as long as they’re not dangerous).
- Oh and maybe take some advice from other parents or well-informed adults who aren’t me…ha ha! Just kidding!!! But seriously. Listen to people older than us because our daughter is only two years old after all.
- It can be so hard to not compare ourselves and our parenting skills with everyone else’s but we are all different people in every stage of life.
- The take away: do what feels right for you, there is no one way to parent that is the best!

You’ll figure out your own way as time goes on so just do what feels right for you in any given moment because there’s nothing wrong with doing things differently than everyone else (as long as they’re not dangerous). The hardest part about being a new parent? Comparing yourself and your parenting skills to others’ when we all have different stories based on our own experiences.
Kids don’t come with instructions and we’re all just doing our best it’s okay to do things differently than everyone else as long as they’re not too dangerous! The thing about being a new parent? You’ll never have the time you had before kids so you might feel like you need to be super duper perfect at everything from changing diapers, cooking dinner and managing your household budget. It can seem impossible but that doesn’t mean it is! We’ve been there, we know how hard this job can be sometimes because there are no manuals on parenting–at least none that I’m aware of. Kids change every day (they grow up really fast), what worked for them yesterday may not work today or tomorrow and that’s okay (as long as you’re not doing anything dangerous).
I’m here to share with you a few things we’ve discovered over the past couple of years. I hope they’ll help make your parenting journey easier and more enjoyable! We have some parental hacks for those pesky toddler tantrums, how to get them into bed without tears and what to do if there is an emergency at home when all adults are gone or sleeping. We have tricks on making mealtime less messy, getting through grocery shopping in one trip instead of three (or ten), managing household chores while still living life and so much more!
