The Pitfalls of Parenting
News from The Root:

Corporal punishment is a no-go. So is yelling. What exactly can you do to raise your kids right?

Hitting your child is bad. (But don’t yell at me for writing it. Yell at science. Multiple studies say so.)

Most school districts have moved away from corporal punishment entirely, and even though you will find some very staunch pro-“whoopings” enthusiasts, they remain greatly outnumbered by the multitudes who think that any hitting of a child is abuse.

But you have to do something as a parent to get your kids to behave. Some parents have simply traded one technique (hitting) for another (yelling).

Instead of “Spare the rod, spoil the child,” these parents are of the “Spare the mout…………… continues on The Root

40 signs you are on the wrong parenting track
News from The Star-Ledger – NJ.com:

We can all benefit from reminders on healthy parenting.  

Before parenthood, I had visions of a brood of little Von Trapp’s singing away before bedtime. I assumed that if I selflessly put the time and energy into sitting down and selecting a story to read, that my children would calmly sit mesmerized by my every alliteration. Then I had children.

I’m a sing-songy Julie Andrews once a year. I’m more of a Miss Hannigan once a week.

I try not to let work, pressure, and life itself nudge its way into the chasm between the parent I aspire to be and who I am in action. Parenting is an unequal formula of patience, consistency, humor, gut-trusting, thinking-outside-the-box, and occasional bribery.

We all have days littered with tantrums, mismatched socks, uncombed hair, and bribery. The right path is a wide and wild road with more than one-way to get there. Its bumpy roads, however, are filled with tight turns and low bridges. Sometimes we all need those flashing, bright indicators to let us know we’re off track.

Here is my own* list of warning signs:

News from More Parenting Words I Want Added to the Dictionary – Huffington Post:

When I was a new mother, I felt really alone. Not always. But often. Because trying to navigate the new, new world that I had entered — the world of parenting — felt difficult and so damn exhausting.

But here’s the thing: it wasn’t a new, new world at all. Parenting had been around for a long time. It even predated the iPad.

Of course, I didn’t have this epiphany right away. It took me until after having my second child to make this incredibly astute observation. But, once I did, I started noticing similarities between things I experienced as a first-time and as a second-time mother. I started noticing more and more similarities between things my first son and second son did. I started to write them down. And, when there wasn’t a word to describe them, I started to make them up.

Eventually, I started blogging about the parenting words I made up and called my blog, Mammalingo. My readers made up words too. Fantastic ones. I added those to the blog as well and soon we…………… continues on More Parenting Words I Want Added to the Dictionary – Huffington Post

Youth Advocates Call For Better Pregnancy, Parenting Student Supports
News from Progress Illinois:

The rights of pregnant and parenting students in Illinois are often overlooked, and more supports need to be in place to ensure the youth reach their full academic potential, school officials and adolescent health advocates said at a town hall meeting on the topic in Chicago.

The meeting, hosted by the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health’s (ICAH) School Network, follows recently-released guidelines from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) on strategies meant to support the academic success of pregnant and parenting students under Title IX. The department’s optional recommendations issued in June were prepared for secondary school administrators, teachers, counselors, parents and students.

ICAH’s Executive Director Yamani Hernandez said a “blanket of shame” still shrouds many young people who are pregnant or parenting and, “That’s really a barrier to their success.”

“Once a young person has already decided to parent, and is already parenting, what the community needs to do is come and mobilize around them and figure out how to help them succeed,” she said. “Not beat them up for decisions that they have made.”

Overall, those at the discussion said it’s often difficult for students and others to find information in their school district about what their options and rights are if they are expecting or parenting. Oth…………… continues on Progress Illinois

The Language of Life: Making music while parenting
News from Sacramento Bee:

Parenting involves countless hours of teaching, and teaching while parenting consists of constant repetition. In order for everything that we feel is important to sink deep into our children’s hearts and minds, we repeat key items almost daily, if not hourly. “Put your shoes away so no one will trip over them,” and “do your homework when you get home from school” or “clear your dishes when you are finished eating.”

Parents can behave as if the seventh or 20th time something is said will make such a marked difference in that particular moment, that children finally will place the fact into their mental “life lessons” file and, suddenly, they won’t need any more reminders about the matter.

While repetition is a great tool to use for teaching or learning just about anything, repetition without structure isn’t the same thing and often little impact. The use of structured repetition works in music: verse, chorus, verse, same chorus, verse, same chorus, maybe a bridge, and then the same chorus again to end.

And what is the difference between a good song and a hit song? Song structure.

So is the difference between good parenting and great parenting structure? Perhaps. The process of learning anything is easier when music is added, and this rule certainly applies to parenting, so music can – and should – be applied more often in par…………… continues on Sacramento Bee

Rosemond: Biggest parenting mistake? Creating spoiled brats
News from The Southern:

2013-09-29T01:00:00Z Rosemond: Biggest parenting mistake? Creating spoiled bratsBY JOHN ROSEMOND The Southern

A journalist recently asked, “What is the biggest mistake parents make?” I had to think about that. Which parents? The biggest mistake made by some parents is they pay entirely too much attention to and do entirely too much for their children. These children usually, but not always, end up as spoiled brats. Why not always? Because some children, by mysterious means, manage to do well in spite of less-than-optimal parenting. The notion that one is produced by the manner in which one is raised is belied by the many exceptions, including children who do well despite bad upbringings and children who do badly in spite of good upbringings.

On the other hand, some parents’ biggest mistake is that they pay entirely too little attention to their kids. Those folks are not generally found reading parenting columns, so I will not belabor their misdeeds. It would only serve the purpose of giving my regu-lar readers reason to celebrate themselves, which is an untoward thing to do under any circumstances.

The biggest mistake made by still other parents is that they t…………… continues on The Southern
