A child comes into this world with their Damage Meter set to zero. With each parenting mistep, you move the needle from zero over towards the red zone. The worst part of it is, you didn't even know how bad a job you were doing until this list came along! (Neither did Todd, Matt, and D.M.)

From "Good Job!" to "Good Girl!" to "What a Beautiful Picture!" to "Stop it Right Now, Ya Palooka, or I'll Gives Ya What For!" - YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG. Who knew? Give a listen and find out what Shelley Phillips of Lifehack.org wants you to say instead.

And once you've listened, subscribe to the full length show on iTunes! It's free! You can even leave the guys a great review. You can also listen at whitedadproblems.com. (Do note that the show is for adults only.)
