Meet the Parenthackers: Duane Morin

Duane Morin hails from New England (NE United States), and has been a reader since just about the beginning. We “met” at Lifehacker, where he left a suggestion that Parent Hacks should publish its full feed (he was right; we published a partial feed at the time) and he’s been a stellar Parenthacker ever since. My favorite Duane contribution: the excellent “spouse hack” Work off the same to-do list.

I have three – 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old girls, though my wife technically won’t let me say “half” until January/February until it is mathematically correct because she doesn’t want them to grow up too fast, and my son, who is 7 months, who is apparently destined to spend his toddler years hearing strangers say of him, “So, you finally got the boy, huh? Congratulations!”

One-line parenting motto?
Oh, lord, I never really thought about it. Anything I could come up with off the top of my head would be some sort of joke.

Which hack have you found most useful or interesting?
Too many to name

    Duane’s hack is right on the money, my husband and I have always worked like that and it definitely helps up keep on top of things.
