Parents Say the Darndest Things

As anyone who has spent any time with kids at all would know, the world is theirs and we are all just living in it. Just ask father of five Nathan Ripperger whose hilarious visuals of every fatherly quips and warnings he’s had to dole out to his kids since 2010 perfectly captures the funny situations kids put themselves in. The Iowa-based graphic designer released a new book titled “Things I’ve Said to My Children” containing some hilarious statements that, taken out of context, may sound a little cuckoo but to parents everywhere, it’s just another day with the kids.
