Despite having three kids, I've never read any parenting books. I'm not proud of this; Kelly has read several, and she's a much better parent than me.
Without her, we never would have sleeptrained our children or established a daily routine. That means they'd be terrorizing us at all hours of the night and be even more undisciplined than they already are (a scary thought).
Anyway, that doesn't mean you can't go overboard. This "Portlandia" clip show you what happens if you read every parenting book.
Now I feel better about my decision to read none.
