I feel sure that unborn babies pick their parents.
Mom and Dad would stay in bed on Sunday morning, but the kids would have to go to church.
Family involvement is a valuable thing and playing together actively can be the '90s version of it. Instead of just watching, you can do it together... something we don't spend enough time on. We can motivate and excite each other about fitness.
I regret not having had more time with my kids when they were growing up.
Do you want to be an artist and a writer, or a wife and a lover? With kids, your focus changes. I don't want to go to PTA meetings.
Family life was wonderful. The streets were bleak. The playgrounds were bleak. But home was always warm. My mother and father had a great relationship. I always felt 'safe' there.
My father wasn't really involved and my mom is the light in my life.
I get whatever placidity I have from my father. But my mother taught me how to take it on the chin.
Parenthood always comes as a shock. Postpartum blues? Postpartum panic is more like it. We set out to have a baby; what we get is a total take-over of our lives.
Polly Berrien Berends
Believe me, my children have more stamina than a power station.
It's a huge change for your body. You don't even want to look in the mirror after you've had a baby, because your stomach is just hanging there like a Shar-Pei.
I suppose it's amazing how quick life goes by when you have children.
That's my ideal day, time with my boys.
I wasn't very good about juggling family and my career. I was interested in who was coming to the children's birthday party, what my son was writing. I was thinking about Legos.
It is a sad commentary of our times when our young must seek advice and counsel from 'Dear Abby' instead of going to Mom and Dad.
What parent has it easy? I just never make the difficulty of it an obstacle. I just do it.
I think I'm going to have to live vicariously through my daughter's rebellion because I certainly never did go through adolescence.
I don't think children's inner feelings have changed. They still want a mother and father in the very same house; they want places to play.
I'd just as soon stay home and raise babies.
Dad was a strict disciplinarian and would give us a wallop with a wooden spoon if we were out of order. But we really respected him - he didn't try to be our best friend.
There are 80 million moms in the United States. Forty million stay at home with their children.
If you're asking your kids to exercise, then you better do it, too. Practice what you preach.
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.
If I feel good about my parenting, I have no interest in judging other people's choices. If I feel good about my body, I don't go around making fun of other people's weight or appearance. We're hard on each other because we're using each other as a launching pad out of our own perceived deficiency.
Nobody ever becomes an expert parent. But I think good parenting is about consistency. It's about being there at big moments, but it's also just the consistency of decision making. And it's routine.
