Parenthood - The Best Way to Be Sure You’re Embarrassed

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m sharing two stories from our new bestseller, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Laughter Is the Best Medicine—two hilarious stories about parenthood and embarrassing kids. This is our first collection of stories devoted to humor, and I couldn’t stop laughing as I edited the manuscript, even when I was reading the stories for the third time. We had no idea the coronavirus was coming when we put this collection together, and I hope it’s viewed in the spirit with which it was conceived, as a way to brighten your days. We certainly don’t take the “laughter is the best medicine” phrase as a serious one, and we don’t want to make light of what’s happening out there. In that vein, as I record this episode on March 3rd, we offer today’s stories.

Start your days with inspiration and motivation from the best of Chicken Soup for the Soul and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark. There's nothing like learning from the personal, revealing stories of other people. Amy shares her favorite stories and the wisdom, advice, and easy-to-implement tips that thousands of people have shared in 25 + years of Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Tips and advice on Mondays and Wednesdays, and interviews with fascinating writers and influencers on Friend Fridays. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul to go!
