JerryJerry O'Connell, child actor turned teen heartthrob turned stay-at-home father of his and Rebecca Romijn's now 10-month-old twins, is writing "Cry, Feed, (Make Love to Wife), Burp," a book about being a dad, MediaBistro's GalleyCat reports.

Hey, why the heck not? Dude had the answers to the most important child-rearing questions handed to him in the script to his breakout film, "Stand by Me."

On nutrition: Stock up on cherry-flavored Pez.

Safety: It's OK to play on the train tracks, as long as you don't fall down.

Conflict resolution: Superman > Mighty Mouse.

Sharing: Calling "dibs" is not the answer.

And on taking the gang to see a dead body? Please, people, do today's parents really need a book to answer that question?

Wait, really?

Um, OK then. (Clears throat.)

On taking the gang to see a dead body: Field trips are good -- just remember to bring a lunch, 'cause you know the kid in the striped shirt is gonna get hungry.

P.S.: And if your kids want to book a play date with the likes of the O'Connell-Romijn clan? We suggest watching the video below, and then considering your options carefully.

Very carefully.
