Quote of the Day
Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth.
I'm worried about parents who aren't parenting.
Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age.
The Golden Rule of Parenting is; do unto your children as you wish your parents had done unto you!
I would like to do another piece of fiction dealing with a number of issues: Lesbian parenting, the 1960's, and interracial relationships in the Lesbian and Gay community.
Parenting is the most important job on the planet next to keeping Gary Busey off the nation's highways.
Indeed - judicious, consistent parenting is a dream of mine. No judgements, learning space and listening carefully are my goals.
I thought that once we were out of the baby stage, parenting would be a breeze.
Kids are a great analogy. You want your kids to grow up, and you don't want your kids to grow up. You want your kids to become independent of you, but it's also a parent's worst nightmare: That they won't need you. It's like the real tragedy of parenting.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I barely have time for my own children. To adopt more children and not have time for them, that would be poor parenting on my part.
Mary J. Blige
Very often when you see families it's all perfect and neat, and parenting isn't like that. You do have constant negotiations. Things are ever developing and ever changing, and you constantly have to evaluate how you deal with your kids.
We're living in a time when parenting is not at all mirroring the way I was parented. For me, I just followed my parents around on their errands; when they were busy on the phone, I was quiet. It's a different kettle of fish these days: They run the house, and you listen to their music, and you go to their appointments.
Don't reward bad behavior. It is one of the first rules of parenting. During the financial cataclysm of 2008, we said it differently. When we bailed out banks that had created their own misfortune, we called it a 'moral hazard,' because the bailout absolved the bank's bad acts and created an incentive for it to make the same bad loans again.
Women are individuals in parenting, and why not?

No, I've never wanted kids. But I do read about parenting a lot.
I'm trying to break any chain of negative parenting that I might have survived.
My grandmother was a kind of Scarsdale, New York, society woman, best known in her day as the author of the 1959 book 'Growing Your Own Way: An Informal Guide for Teen-Agers' - this despite being a person whose parenting style made Joan Crawford's wire hangers look like pool noodles.
Ah, the power of two. There's nothing quite like it. Especially when it comes to paying utility bills, parenting, cooking elaborate meals, purchasing a grown-up bed, jumping rope and lifting heavy machinery. The world favours pairs. Who wants to waste the wood building an ark for singletons?
I hope to find the roles that are age appropriate but not yearning to be younger, or parenting ad nauseam.
Parenting, as an unpaid occupation outside the world of public power, entails lower status, less power, and less control of resources than paid work.
Parenting is an impossible job at any age.
We must return optimism to our parenting. To focus on the joys, not the hassles; the love, not the disappointments; the common sense, not the complexities.
Fred G. Gosman
In truth, I am a single mother. But I don't feel alone at all in parenting my daughter. Krishna has a whole other side of her family who loves her, too. And so Krishna is parented by me, but also by her grandmother and aunts and cousins and uncles and friends.
Relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.
