Ever get sick of parenting experts? What exactly is a parenting “expert”, anyway? Well, satirists over at The Onion have said what many of us would like to say in a new spoof video called, appropriately, “Parenting Expert Has Nerve to Tell You How to Raise Your Own Goddamn Kids”.

To the gurus, experts and ninjas out there

Parenting is difficult, and it can be riddled with insecurities, but it’s also totally reliant on the individuals involved. Every family has several different dynamics at play. While there may be experts on human behaviour, psychology, education and health, parenting has just too broad a spread to claim to be an expert.

The best you can hope for is that you’ll become better at time management and, terrifyingly, disaster management. It’s a learning curve for all parents, and although tips from other parents may be useful, we’re mostly at the same level when we become parents.

The first question put to the “parenting expert” in this spoof video is hilarious:

“Who the hell do you think you are telling me how to raise my kids?”

It goes downhill from there- especially when other parents join in with their questions…

Check it out, it’s a great laugh:
