I'm hosting weekend retreats all over America. It is like a 24-hour slumber party for moms. We laugh eat play games get massages win prizes talk about parenting and even cry a bit.
For me Twitter works best as a way of taking pictures of being stuck in traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge. If people really want to read really funny quips about life parenting and pop culture then by all means read Michael Ian Black's tweets.
I'm a parent especially when you've had the intense parenting the way I had. It's all in the bank. It's all in the great experience bank. Those are your secrets. That's the stuff that makes your work rich that's what you dip into.
Parents are key when it comes to keeping kids off drugs. Good parenting is the best anti-drug we have.
I'm torn about late parenting. I believe people should spend their twenties living and having fun and not having any regrets later. I also think people in their thirties generally make better parents but so many of my friends are having trouble - myself included - as fathers get older.
The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic money success work/life balance the economy the environment parenting family conflict relationships disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated our ancient stress response hasn't been able to keep up.
I grew up with no money. My kids will grow up with a lot of money and so it's really important to me and it will always be a part of my parenting to keep them conscientious and connected socially to other people.
If there is any truth to my parenting the dreamwork movement it comes from the power of the press.
Parenting is not for sissies. You have to sacrifice and grow up.
For decades parents were told by so-called parenting 'experts' that offspring would be best raised on the belief each is special and entitled to all life has to offer.
I came to parenting the way most of us do - knowing nothing and trying to learn everything.
I have a neuroscience background - that's what my doctorate is in - and I was trained to study hormones of attachment so I definitely feel my parenting is informed by that.
I've become sort of an accidental advocate for attachment parenting which is a style of parenting that... basically the way mammals parent and the way people have parented for pretty much all of human history except the last 200 years or so.
Attachment parenting is not a passive parenting style.
Relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.
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.
Parenting as an unpaid occupation outside the world of public power entails lower status less power and less control of resources than paid work.
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?
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.
I'm trying to break any chain of negative parenting that I might have survived.
No I've never wanted kids. But I do read about parenting a lot.
While not impossible it is especially challenging for teenage parents to develop bonds with their children. A high percent of them were themselves children of teenage parents and have never experienced appropriate parenting.
Women are individuals in parenting and why not?
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.
