As parents, a big part of our job is teaching our children life’s important (and not-so-important) lessons. Some parents are so good at imparting their lessons with humor that we feel they deserved a brighter spotlight. Together with our partner Chrysler Pacifica, we bring you some of favorite, funny words of wisdom from parents to their kids.
