Every parent needs a good laugh every now and then (although preferably multiple times a day). Cartoonist and dad of two, Brian Gordon, knows this only too well. Ever since he became a parent, he started a comic strip in an attempt to keep himself sane–and to connect to other parents.
When he first became a dad, Brian believed he was the worst parent ever–until he started talking to other parents. Documenting his parenting triumphs and failures allows him to make light of his struggles, which he explained to Pop Sugar:
“Being a parent can be incredibly frustrating, and I think sharing those frustrations and laughing with other parents is the best thing we can do to keep each other sane.”
His comics have become so popular in the parenting world that he compiled his comics into his first book.
