20 Best Homer Simpson Quotes On Parenting

Arguably the world’s most recognizable American family is the Simpson’s. With nearly 500 episodes and 22 seasons, they continue to fill our Sunday evenings with joy. Most of us gather round the TV with our own family and laugh at all the hysterical antics of theirs.

Being the patriarch that he is, Homer has laid forth quite a bit of knowledge on family and raising children. He may not be the perfect dad but he sure loves his kids, even if he has a weird way of showing it. We all might be able to learn a thing or two from him. Here are his 20 best quotes on parenting.
