Flight of the Conchords offers Parenting Tips

Some parents need help. As the old saying goes, “There is no manual.”

No, but there are videos.

Flight of the Conchords is a great example, as the fourth largest parody folk band in New Zealand, on teachable moments through the magic of You Tube.

*In this video, we learn that being pretty isn’t a full time job, only a part time job, thus enforcing the “BE COOL STAY IN SCHOOL” philosophy.

*Here we learn healthy expectations in regards to sex: 2 minutes in heaven is better than 1 minute in heaven.

*Here we find out why you don’t play with your food.

*Learning to can change my cussing habits to “Mother Ucker.”

*Possibly one of the best songs for teaching young girls that they are in control of their bodies. Oh, that’s right, the FOTC is all about the morals:

*We use this to teach our children other languages. Foux Da Fa Fa!

*Serving as a reminder on how to express your anger in healthy ways.

*Here we find out how not to judge people for where they come from.
