When I was a kid, unanswered questions were directed at the family Encyclopedia lining our bookshelf. Now my kids ask me to Google it. As a parent, I use Google to help me solve arguments, debunk grade school myths, solve arguments, and learn how to handle problems I’m not equipped for. Below are a few examples of the Google searches I’ve made since having children.
1. How to remove poop from carpet
2. Did dinosaurs have nipples
3. How to braid a girls hair
4. How to detangle a girls hair
5. Is it bad for a baby to poop five times in one day
6. What foot fungus looks like
7. How to open a locked bathroom door
8. Can sharks live in a backyard
9. Can cats eat people
10. Will eating too many dinosaur chicken nuggets kill you
11. Do spiders defy gravity
12. What happens if you go too long without a bath
13. Images: bad teeth
14. Will eating boogers make you blind
15. World record for eating fruit snacks
16. How to get Silly Putty out of couch cushions
17. At what age should a child begin to wipe their own butt
