Kid-Friendly Song Lyrics: Escape (The Piña Colada Song)

escape_safe_for_kids

By the time you get to be an adult, you probably have thousands upon thousands of song lyrics bouncing all around inside your brain. And every so often, you might want to belt a few of those lyrics out.

Normally, this isn’t a problem.

Singing in the shower or rockin’ out with the car radio are some of the most widely relatable human experiences we have. Everybody does it – including us parents.

But what happens when the song you’re itching to sing is full of adults-only lyrics – featuring sex, drugs and rock and/or roll – yet your sweet, innocent, adorable, little angel baby is sitting right beside you?

Earplugs are certainly an option. But we don’t think it’s your best bet.

We say you should be able to sing whatever songs you want in front of your kids – you just have to clean up the dirty parts first!

Book Review: ‘Last Night I Had a Laughmare’ by J.E. Laufer

laughmare1

We’re reviewing gifts this holiday season! We’ve already told you about the best and second best gifts for parents ever, and now we’ve got a one for the kids in your life. Last Night I Had a Laughmare, written by J.E. Laufer and illustrated by Jeff Yesh, is a whimsical, rhyming story about a fantastical land called “Gigglyville.”

Laufer was inspired to write the book when she woke up one morning laughing in her sleep. She called it a “laughmare” and created a dreamland that would leave kids laughing too.

Our family has visited Gigglyville many times now, and here’s what we each had to say about the book:

D+D on PBS: Why your family should be funny

pbsparentslogo1

If you’ve ever read our blog, bought our highly rated parenting book, or spoken to us for at least thirty seconds straight, you know that the Doctor and the Dad like to crack us some jokes.

Ask our kids about it, and they’ll tell you the exact same thing. (Except for the nonverbal three-month-old, who’ll audibly fill her diaper instead.)

In our newest article for the PBS Parents website, we’ll show you why joking around with your kids is such a seriously good idea.

Spoiler alert: it’s because it can benefit nearly every aspect of their development.
