About Science of Parenthood

A longtime women’s magazine writer, Norine Dworkin-McDaniel created Science of Parenthood with cartoonist Jessica Ziegler in early 2013. The illustrated humor blog—often called “The Big Bang Theory of parenting blogs”— uses fake math and snarky science to lampoon the ridiculous situations otherwise capable adults find themselves in as a result of having kids. Their satire and cartoons are routinely featured on Huffington Post as well as on Upworthy, RedbookMag.com, parenting.com and Bored Panda and even got them a nod as TODAYParents’ Funniest Parents of 2015. Their book, Science of Parenthood, goes deeper into the sciences to offer “explanations” for many of the pressing questions concerning parents today:

  • Why DO kids grow up so fast, but Candy Land drags on so s-l-o-w-l-y?
  • Why must children sleep perpendicular to any adult laying next to them?
  • Are earplugs an acceptable baby shower gift?
  • Why can’t a kid who plays Minecraft for hours sit still for 10 freakin’ minutes to finish a math worksheet?
  • Exactly how many tequila shots does it take to get through an episode of Caillou?

Limited copies of the book are now available in The Science Store while supplies last. Science of Parenthood hit #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Parenting Humor Releases and won both the Independent Book Publishers Association’s GOLD Benjamin Franklin Award for Parenting/Family and Foreword Reviews’ SILVER INDIEFab Award for Humor.
