As all moms and dads will know, parenthood isn't as easy as it might seem from the outside. But no matter how tough it is raising kids, there's always something to smile about.

Take a look at these funny comics for instance. They come from a website called scienceofparenthood.com run by Norine Dworkin-McDaniel, a writer, and Jessica Ziegler, an illustrator and web developer. They decided to start writing about parenting after both having kids of their own, and as you can see, their webcomics perfectly capture what it means to be a parent and the everyday problems that come with it using various scientific analogies. From Newton's laws, Einstein's theory of relativity and Archimedes' principles to echolocation, coefficient of friction and geometry theorems, the quirky comics summarize the struggles faced by modern-day moms and dads. And don't worry, you don't need to know anything about science to find these parenting tips funny or painfully relatable.

Kids have so much energy, because they siphon it out of us adults!

The amount of time a toddler fidgets in bed is directly proportionate to the extra amount of sleep you thought you would get.

Paulina I have to kinda disagree with you. studies have shown that if you are showing them developmental/learning apps then it can be an added benefit to your child as far as their development, but if you are just giving them the tablet and they are watching cartoons all day on it then yes...it is a hindrance. http://www.today.com/parents/toddlers-babies-ok-play-ipads-birth-study-t26171

Yep, sleeping in at weekends is "a waste of time", while "school is boring, so I wanna sleep in". Sigh...

In Imagination Land, Loki has a similar problem with Galactus. He can recite nearly every one of his comics to himself verbatim, yet he cannot remember that water balloons are OUTSIDE things.

Ah the joys of the summer holidays. Three days before = can't wait for them to finish school for the summer! Three days in = Is it time for school yet? Three days before the end = Ringing up school and begging them to take them back early.

My Product Purchase and Loss Ratio: The odds that I will purposely lose/destroy an item decrease in direct proportion to how expensive the item is to replace.
