Let’s face it: Kids are gross.

13 hilarious parenting rules you never thought you'd have to makeIn the latest episode of her web series Momsplaining, Kristen Bell talks to some kids and moms (including celeb moms like Kim Kardashian West, Kelly Clarkson and more) about all the absolutely disgusting things that kids get themselves into. For example, one mom shared how her son found some gum under the table while her family was eating at a restaurant.
