Howie Mandel Uses Sense of Humor When Parenting His Kids

Comedian Howie Mandel — who says his sense of humor "keeps me sane" — knows only too well that when it comes to parenting, sometimes a playful attitude is just what’s needed. Remembering a trip to a home store when his oldest daughter Jackie, now 23, was potty training, Howie says that although he had gone with his wife to buy bathroom fixtures, they also scored a new toilet in the process! "The manager came running over to say my kid just used one of the toilet floor samples," says Howie, who remembers feeling "pretty humiliated." The embarrassed father ended up buying the floor sample, as he jokes, "I guess you could say we had already left a deposit."

How’s that for potty training! Source
