  1. Cut up Your Kids’ Food So They Won’t Be Jerks: a Study

    Or better yet, mama bird it.

    Apparently kids are not only what they eat, but how. A study from Cornell University suggests that children are more likely to act aggressively when eating food with their hands and front teeth. So, cut up that apple and un-cob that corn! Future generations depend on it!

  2. Adults Say The Darndest Things (To Their Kids)

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    I related to these graphic design posters a great deal. Except replace "kids" with "cats." Art Nathan Ripperger is the father of four boys and finds some peculiar phrases coming out of his mouth around them.

  3. BleepBleeps Wants to Use Tech and Design to Make Parenting Easier

    One of them checks your sperm count and it's called "Master Bates" and we love these.

    As someone who spent most of last night rocking a teething infant, I can tell you: parenting is hard. It will always be hard, but maybe technology and design can make it a little easier. That's the goal of BleepBleeps. They're a line of connected devices built to make parenting go a bit more smoothly.

  4. Parents Convince Children Dinosaurs Have Invaded Their Household For The Month

    BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

    I'm not sure whether to laugh or run away screaming. I know what I would do if I were the kids living in this house. Dinovember is the practice of one set of parents (or more) to set up elaborate scenarios each night in November involving plastic dinosaurs for their kids to find when they wake up. Apparently this is a tradition in their family now.

  5. Geeky Dad Jonathan Guberman Builds Geeky Alphabet Blocks for His Probably Geeky Son

    A is for Awesome job, Mr. Guberman!

    Geek-parenting is incredibly relevant to our interests here at Geekosystem (well, my interests anyway) but you don't have to have a kid to appreciate these laser-cut alphabet blocks that feature some of the best things about geek culture. T is for TARDIS, and don't you forget it. Take a look at all the blocks and the guy who made them. Allons-y!

  6. The Last of Reviews: A Very Late Review of The Last of Us

    Review

    I'm offering you a very late review of The Last of Us for a number of reasons. Primarily, because Naughty Dog reached out to us specifically to offer a review copy, not something that happens very often to The Mary Sue. More specifically, I'm offering it to you because our usual reviewer, Becky Chambers, does not own a PS3. Which is partially why you're getting it so late, because I don't usually have to factor in "playing a video game" to my job obligations. And since I'm not usually a game reviewer, and you're not usually getting reviews from me on this site, lets get some expository information out of the way before I dive into the meat of explaining how The Last of Us is one of the strongest emotional experiences I've had playing a video game. And, you know, it's pretty damn good with its female characters as well.

    You may remember some dads getting together to sing “Part of Your World” from Disney's The Little Mermaid. It was freaking adorable.

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    Cheer up. It's almost the weekend! Here's a little girl who wants her dad to stop scat singing all over the place and get back to the part where she says "mahna mahna." Sheesh, dad. (via Hyper Vocal.)

  9. Cool Kid of the Day: Tony Hawk’s Daughter

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    There's nothing cooler than folks keeping their teenage passions (you know, the ones that are still associated with teenagers by the mainstream) through adulthood, and there's nothing cuter than the same folks passing on those passions to their kids. Says Hawk to those worried about his adorable daughter, "For those that say I endanger my child: it's more likely that you will fall while walking on the sidewalk than I will while skating with my daughter." Which at first brush seems a little brash, but then again... he's the guy with nine X Games gold medals. Previously in Kids

  10. Daughter Wants to Dress as Wolf? Dad Dresses as Red Riding Hood

    And All Was Right With the World

    Paper_liger's daughter announced she wanted to be a wolf for Halloween, and when he saw the plus-sized, skimpy, women's Red Riding Hood costume right next to the wolf costume at the store, he knew what had to happen. Just keep her away from any Russian grandmothers. Previously in Kids in Costumes
