Fatherhood can be a tough and daunting task for first-time fathers, but with some of these genius dads' clever and creative strategies, it should be a breeze. These kids practically parent themselves!

If you're a clever dad who can lend his expertise to this list, or if you've seen a comparable image, we'd love to see it added to this list! Vote for your favorite strategies too so that all of dad-kind can see it.
