The “No Internet” Punishment: Online Rules for Out of Line Kids Family / Huffington Post

I’ve always believed in the parenting principle of finding out what your kids like the most… and then taking it away from them as a form of punishment. The thing is, kids are very transparent, or “authentic” in today’s social media terminology.

Tiger Mom vs. Lager Mom Family / Huffington Post

A recent book about the phenomenon of “Tiger Moms” caused quite a stir in the parenting community.

Is it really that predetermined? Stereotypically, the oldest child is likely to be more academic, less of a risk taker, a perfectionist, more driven, and...

What They Don’t Teach in Babysitting 101 Family / Huffington Post

Like many 12-year-olds, my daughter recently completed her babysitting course, which in theory will enable her to venture forth into the world of watching other people’s children with insight, knowledge and experience. However, after having reviewed the course materials and grilling her on the information that was shared, I do believe that as a mother of four I should share some vital facts which seem...
