7 Humorous and Unconventional Parenting Ideas ...


As most parents know, there is never any set guide on how to raise your children right.

You do the best you can and hope your kids grow up to be successful and happy adults who look back with fond memories of their childhood.

Some parents, though, like to do things with their kids that are different and not necessarily by the books.

These things often tend to be the most memorable to your children in the long run and may even end up being a better form of parenting.

I'm here to share 7 Humorous and Unconventional Parenting Ideas that you can try with your kids.

1. Toy Hoarding

Is your child terrible with leaving their things everywhere in the house?

Why not take the things they leave out for ransom?

The next time your child leaves their toys out and doesn't clean up when told, hide the toy somewhere they can't find.

Then leave a note where it was left saying they will only get it back if they do a chore.

They will quickly realize they should stop leaving their things laying around or else they are going to have to do something they don't like to do in order to get it back.

2. Tooth Fairy Evidence

Spice up the old Tooth Fairy myth by using hair spray and glitter to make Tooth Fairy money!

Leave the glittering money under your child's pillow and in the morning you can both marvel at the evidence that the Tooth Fairy is real!2

If you want to take it a step further, leave a trail of Tooth Fairy glitter around your child's bedroom!

3. Child Shaming

Although dog shaming is hilarious I do find child shaming, especially in public, to be a bit harsh.

A fun alternative is to have your child pose for a photo instead with a child shaming board saying what they did.2

When they grow up, it will be a funny way to show your child the bad things they did when they were younger.

You can also use it for punishment later in life by telling your teen you're going to post the photos in their high school yearbooks if they don't behave.2

I guess it's up to you if you really do it.

Don't be cruel.
