Betsy Kerekes Welcome!

I’m Betsy Kerekes, author of Be a Happier Parent or Laugh Trying and co-author of 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage, 101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person. I also publish the occasional article, talk on the occasional radio show, and speak at the occasional conference on the topics of happy marriage, effective parenting, and marrying the right person. I can be contacted at parentingisfunny at gmail dot com.

I have a wonderful husband, three beautiful daughters, and a toddler son. All five of them find new ways to make me laugh or embarrass me nearly every day. Because some of their antics are just too good not to share, I started this blog. It’s a great outlet as well as a forum where fellow parents can commiserate or just have a good laugh after a long day.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Hi Betsy, Thanks for coming by my blog when I tapped on your shoulder. I found you on Carrie Rubin’s page. I’m pretty sure I married the right person THIS time. We’ve been together for nearly ten years (married eight come October), but I’m sure I could use some tips for keeping things happy. He’s a much more intellectual conversationalist than the pug, the Aussie cattle dog or the cokatiel.


  2. Hi Betsy, Just wanted to stop by and personally thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read me and comment. I feel so honored and humbled when talented people like yourself do that…I am so very, very touched and appreciative. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! ❤

  4. Thank you so much for “liking” my post on what 30 minutes mean. I am writing because….well, I am just wondering how you found that post. I mean, I “liked” your introduction page, so I thought that maybe you checked out my blog because of that. That would seem like a typical route. Then again, that particular post is quite old, and unlikely to come up if you click on my gravatar or whatever that hockey puck picture is called.
    See, the funny thing about that post is that it is rather popular. Several times a week, people stumble upon it, but I don’t know how. I have seen it appear in different formats (different to the way the blog looks–very plain, with no links to myself). Anyway, I didn’t mean to bother you, I was just curious.


  5. Enjoyed looking through your posts. Parenting is truly challenging and yet rewarding. Being a grandparent is truly rewarding as well. I see some things from our grandchildren that are similar to our children and I chuckle inside. Excellent work.
