Stand Up for Family- Be Prepared for Some Laughs

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Stand Up for Family, a comedy special from American Family Insurance, is a great way to bring your family together to find the humor in the everyday experiences we all have in our lives.

Hosted by Bill Belemy,  Stand Up for Family has some of today's funniest comedians talking about their families and childhoods and believe me- you will relate to many of their stories. I especially liked the video where Bill Belemy talked about coming home when the street lights came on and how his mother would always tell him to go play outside. My childhood was the same way- my mom would always tell me to go outside and play and then I would be gone until it started to get dark out. I can see myself nagging my kids to get out of the house when they are older- what mom doesn't want her kids to not be constantly underfoot? It is funny now that as a mom myself I realize that I annoyed my mom and that the only way she could get some peace and quiet was to force me to play outside.

I really do see these comedy videos, brought to us by AmFam, as things that the whole family could watch and enjoy together though I feel like they are aimed at older children and adults. There is something therapeutic about hearing jokes about people's childhood and all of the imperfections of their families because when you look back you realize that those funny and imperfect things that you, your siblings and your parents did were what made your family yours. I am sure that when my kids are adults and look back at their childhoods they will have many moments to laugh at- many, many moments.

So if you need a good laugh or just want to realize that you not being perfect parent will not screw up your kids and will actually provide them with fodder when they are adults, check out American Family Insurance's Stand Up For Family.
