A latest study says that regardless of the embarrassment that “dad jokes” could cause, it would do some kids good sooner or later.

Dad jokes are usually inoffensive, corny puns. They are healthful and age-appropriate, making it appropriate for fathers to inform their youngsters.

Hye-Knudsen means that when fathers embarrass their youngsters with unfunny jokes, it teaches them easy methods to overcome awkwardness.
