I've finally been catching up on the episodes of PORTLANDIA that I've been DVR-ing from IFC, and they've done a fine job at proving all self-professed "parenting experts" are full of... "caca." Just watch:
In case you haven't been watching, PORTLANDIA is a fascinating, truth-based reality series starring Fred Armisen (of the excellent travel documentary, EUROTRIP) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney).
In addition to parenting authors being questionable (especially any claiming to be a "Doctor" or carrying the letters "PhD" after their name), be wary of those claiming to be "Dad Bloggers" or "Mom Bloggers." Except for me, of course*.
PORTLANDIA airs Friday nights at 10/9c on IFC.
*While The Rock Father is undoubtedly a brand you should trust, all parents are really just winging it. No one has a definitive "right" or "wrong" when it comes to parenting, though many will gladly tout their way as the "right" way and your way as the "wrong."
