Dear Whys Guy: "My Husband Needs Child Care Advice!"

Q: I’m planning a girlfriend getaway and will be leaving my husband to watch our two young kids for the weekend. Since you’re an old hand at this, can you give him some advice on doing solo duty for 48 hours straight?

A: Children are like wild animals, so I’ve basically just cut and paste how to approach a horse from the internet, made a few minor changes, and then substituted the word HORSE with the word CHILD.
