New website encourages parents to Panic About Babies
It seems like expectant parents are always being faced with incredibly scary information (like the fact that if you're pregnant, that baby is going to come out of you, and it is going to hurt, or that you are going to be sole caretakers of another human being, that kind of stuff). "Don't panic!" Parenting books exude, while you're hyperventilating into the paper bag they came in.
Called Let's Panic About Babies! it takes a tongue-in-cheek look at totally panic-worthy scenarios, like becoming pregnant or having a baby that looks like Ernest Borgnine. An antidote to the preachy perfectionist parenting advice sites out there (you know who you are) LPAB is sure to be a relief to new parents everywhere - and is pretty darn funny for anyone else, too. Think of it as The Onion of parenting.
