Are You the Parent? Then You’re the Boss Family / Huffington Post

How democratic parenting is letting us down: a top-ten list. 1) It’s wasting our time. An unusually long amount of time can be spent attempting to explain to subordinates (children) why certain things just “are” (such as bedtimes, dental appointments, nutritious food, etc.) when a simple “Because I said so” takes less than four seconds.

Prince George has arrived. From the moment it was announced that Prince William’s wife, Kate, was expecting their first child, and third-in-line-for-the-throne-heir, many moms and the media have struggled to find commonalities between her new baby experience, and everyone else’s.
