In addition to teaching us about advertising and adultery, "Mad Men" has given us plenty of quality advice about parenting.
Life is only fair if you make your children as unhappy as you are.
Bring your children to fun work events! Theres nothing more important to the maturation process than having them walk in on your mother-in-law going down on your coworker.
Having another child solves all marital problems! (For at least one full season, anyway.)
Children born of back-alley trysts deserve the same love and honesty as all children. (To a point. Its not like everyone needs to know who their real father is.)
Unburden yourself to your childs school psychologist, because finding your own therapist is, like, annoying and expensive.
If you convince yourself that you never had a baby, eventually it’ll become true. In just a few short years you'll be like, 'What baby? I smoke pot and write copy about beans LOL!'
There's no better child-rearing environment than a smoke-filled, booze-soaked house in a suburban neighborhood full of unhappy people.
