Breaking Down Parenting Myths With The Dad Podcast

We've been bamboozled!

All those years, all those experiences and fun opportunities we missed out on.

Not swimming right after eating.  Not crossing your eyes.  

Whatever it was.

It turns out that it may have all been for no reason.

It turns out they were just some common parenting myths that far too many of us believed.

Justin Worsham of The Dad Podcast did some research, and it turns out that there is a whole bunch of parenting myths that we fell for.

Some of them include:

  • Sitting too close to the TV or reading in the dark will mess up your eyes
  • You’ll catch a cold if you go outside without a coat or wet hair
  • Your face will stick that way
  • Don’t eat standing’s bad for you
  • Carrots are good for your eyes
  • Whiskey on the gums is good for teething
  • Swallowed chewing gum stays in your stomach for seven years
  • It takes more muscles to frown than to smile
  • Sugar makes you hyper

What else are we missing out on?!  Or, like whiskey on the gums, what else are we doing wrong?!
