‘Extreme Guide to Parenting’ May Be Putting Child Abuse On Display (VIDEO)
News from The Stir:

It wasn’t me who said it — I’m just repeating it! LOL. Seriously, I had dropped Bravo’s Extreme Guide to Parenting after episode 1 because it horrified me so much, but it’s back on The Real Deal by request. Also today, Don’t Be TardyLeAnn & Eddie and some juicy naked gossip. Dating Naked, that is.

Kim Zolciak is a flip-flopper at the moment, but it’s not her fault, it’s her network. Is she on Sundays? Thursdays? Both? Very confusing. Nevertheless, once I finally found the episode on my DVR and watched it, I realized what she has in common with Will Ferrell. Or Melissa McCarthy. Or both. Confused? In today’s exclusive video below I explain it all.

Next, Marisa Silver Eisenberg‘s reaction to a child psychologist telling her she is guilty of child abuse, is to discount and dismiss him. Yes, it’s Extreme Guide to Parenting time. I noticed a pattern with each set of parents, the Eisenbergs included, and break down in today’s episode what leads people to do a show such as this, what the editors have in mind, and what makes a Tiger Mom.

LeAnn Rimes has two problems. One is her show, and the other is her husband. Oh wait, three problems……………. continues on The Stir

Psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg lashes out against ‘crappy parenting’ in …
News from Herald Sun:

ONE of Australia’s leading psychologists has issued a damning assessment of Australian parents: you are doing a crap job.

Dr Michael Carr-Gregg’s new book, Strictly Parenting, includes a chapter titled “The Unfortunate Rise of Crap Parenting”. In it he details some of the “dysfunctional, over-involved parenting styles that have emerged in the past two decades”.

As Dr Carr-Gregg notes in the book, some people “may be offended by the term ‘crap’, arguing that parenting is hard enough without psychologists slagging them off for being incompetent”.

“But the truth is that they are crappy,” he said.

The problem, he told the Herald Sun, is a “vitamin ‘N’ deficiency in Australian parenting”.

“Learn to say no,” he said.

In the book he notes the rise of children with compliant parents who are totally indulged.

“Many of the parenting practices I have observed over the last decade fly in the face of a mountain of sound research,” he said.</…………… continues on Herald Sun

Tooth Fairy pay-outs on the rise, as inflation meets poor parenting
News from Washington Times:

So much for the days of a dollar a tooth — or a quarter. Inflation has driven the costs of a Tooth Fairy visit sky-high, and kids nowadays are bragging on the playground about night-time exchanges that leaves them $ 5 richer.

Or more, as The New York Post reported.

The national average per tooth is $ 3.70 – up 23 percent in just a year, and 42 percent in two years, the credit card company, Visa, reported in a just-completed study. That’s a heck of an inflation figure.

But that’s just the average. Oone 39-year-old mother from South Orange, N.J., reports that her children – daughter Oona and sonJacques – say their playground friends are getting even bigger bucks: $ 5 a tooth, even $ 10 a tooth, in some instances, The New York Post reported.

Six percent of tooth payments hit more than $ 20 a pop, however. And 2 percent actually get $ 50 or more — per tooth, Visa found.

“A dollar still seems reasonable to me,” the shocked mom said, in the report.

Blame inflation — and poor parenting, said

We asked Midler and Crystal to give their own tried-and-true parental guidance. Here are their 10 top tips.

Accept.

Midler: “Accept that children are individuals and not a reflection of you. Don’t try to change them.”

Crystal: “Let them have their independence. Ultimately, you help them find themselves. They’re telling you what they need.”

Bite your tongue.

Midler: “Don’t be harshly critical, or they’ll remind you to your dying day.”

Laugh a lot.

Crystal: “Bring as much joy to your house as you can.”

Midler: “Keep them laughing, even in the face of dire adversity. My daughter thinks I’m the funniest thing that ever walked. I live for those moments. She gets me more than anybody. That makes life worth living.”

Crystal: “My granddaughters are starting to understand what I do. First they saw Monsters, Inc., and I was Grandpa Mike Wazowski. Then they saw The Princess Bride and the Oscars (which he has hosted nine times). The 6-year-old said, ‘Do people know that Grandma is married to Billy Crystal?’ ”

Parenting Perfectionists: From Supermom To Nervous Breakdown (VIDEO)
News from Huffington Post:

Tameka McFaul went from a severely depressed mother to CEO of her own company, Driven Dream Girls. On a segment for HuffPost Live, she shared with host Nancy Redd how trying to be a supermom stressed her out. McFaul, who married her high school sweetheart, put pressure on herself to do it all and eventually had a breakdown after losing her job.

“I just felt as a mom that I wasn’t doing my part,” she said. “I think that’s where the depression came in. So it was just like hitting the pavement and going to interview after interview. And I think life just started taking a toll on me. That’s when the depression took a hold of me.”

How Have Parenting Styles Changed Over the Last Generation?
News from OzarksFirst.com:

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — What’s the toughest job in the world? Many people will say being a parent.

For the most part, it’s on-the-job training. No doubt moms and dads today face different pressures than their parents did a generation ago.

At one time, the “Leave it to Beaver” TV show was the picture of parenting in America. Today, it’s more like a chaotic scene from “Cheaper by the Dozen.”

So what has changed?

“I think parents are less strict,” says Ali Shay. “I know when I was little I got in trouble all the time, but now some of the kids are allowed to do anything.”

“I was home with my girls,” recalls Lorraine Colon. “Cooked dinner, made sure they did their homework. Now it’s different. Both parents are working.”

“Parents don’t seem to teach their children to respect their elders,” says Keith Marion.

Dr. Angel Gill-Taylor is a clinical psychologist with Mercy Clinic. She says, in part, an evolution in technology and science has reshaped how we parent our children today.

“They didn’t use science to apply to raising children. It was based more on biblical principals or philosophy of where they lived and that’s what they passed down one generation to the next.”

Clearly pop culture has changed.

“Children can have tv 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the internet.   That’s one of the issues parents are…………… continues on OzarksFirst.com

NOTHING can sink a friendship like differences over parenting. Sometimes the areas of disagreement are stark and dramatic, leading to blowups and out-and-out breaks. Most of the time they’re subtle and unstated, a matter of dark looks and long-simmering resentments, that erode, rather than rupture, formerly close relationships. Often they arise from a vague sense of betrayal, a friend’s having changed once he or she has had children, breaking unspoken assumptions about shared values and goals, how to live and…………… continues on New York Times

5 Hilarious Parodies of the ‘Facebook Parenting’ Viral Video

Posted by on Thursday, 23 February, 2012

5 Hilarious Parodies of the ‘Facebook Parenting’ Viral Video
News from Mashable:

It’s been two weeks since North Carolina dad Tommy Jordan uploaded his now-infamous YouTube video, “Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen.” To say the eight-minute diatribe punctuated by the execution of a laptop via .45-caliber pistol has gone viral since then would be putting it mildly.

The video now has more than 28 million views, and peaked the day after it was uploaded with 11 million on that Friday alone, according to YouTube. In its first week up, Jordan’s video got some 215,000 comments and spawned more than 1,000 additional uploads tagged “facebook parenting.”

Many of the responses were simply people opining into webcams, but some solid parodies emerged as well. In one, an actor gives a spot-on impersonation of Jordan as he and daughter Hanna spiral ever downward in a cycle of bitter retribution. In another, a woman who says she supports Jordan’s parenting methods offers a spoof as tribute. And there’s a cartoon version, too, of course.

Helicopter parents take a rest
News from Boston.com:

Sonia Schneider was a mom in the grip of a parenting mania. Eager to expose her young children to as many enrichment opportunities as their peers, the Brookline mother signed her preschooler and kindergartner up for so many classes last year that her 5-year-old was too busy for play dates.

“She’d want to read a book together,’’ Schneider said, “but I’d say, ‘We don’t have time for that, you have to get into your leotard.’ ’’ The extracurricular activities continued to escalate. Until Schneider finally hit bottom. “We started doing private ukulele lessons.’’

That was it. While Schneider’s kids are taking skating lessons, her days of over-scheduling them are, well, over. “I don’t know what happened,’’ she says. “I was so crazy.’’

Is the helicopter parent dead? It’s probably too soon to declare that, but a new parenting book, “Bringing Up B?b?: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting,’’ has caught fire in the parenting world, leading experts to report a growing eagerness among mothers and fathers to return to the less-intense style practiced by previous generations.

‘Facebook Parenting’ YouTube Video Is More Viral Than ‘Friday’

‘Facebook Parenting’ YouTube Video Is More Viral Than ‘Friday’
News from Mashable:

Move over, Rebecca Black. Make room for Tommy Jordan.

The heat-packing, tech-savvy dad who plugged nine rounds into his daughter’s laptop in a YouTube-broadcasted fit of parental retribution is rapidly blowing the pop star’s notorious “Friday” video out of the water in the 24/7 viral video derby.

“Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen,” uploaded exactly two weeks ago, has already amassed more than 28 million views on YouTube. That’s some 5 million more than the most recent re-uploaded version of “Friday,” which came back to YouTube in official form in September. But it’s a good deal less than the well over 100 million views the music video gained in its first life after originally appearing last February.

A closer look at the stats, however, reveals Tommy Jordan making a strong bid for viral-video supremacy.

Pregnancy presents a parenting dilemma
News from Austin American-Statesman:

Dear Carolyn:We have a wonderful 26-year-old cousin who just announced she is pregnant. My wife and I are very happy and have expressed our joy and support in multiple ways.

The father is 40. They have been dating for about six months but have not announced whether they are going to get married. She will definitely be a great mom. The dad may be great too — our family does not know him well yet.

Our challenge is how we handle this with our 10-year-old daughter. We have been and will continue to be fully supportive of our cousin; however, we also would like to impress upon our daughter that we hope that a man and a woman fall in love and then decide to get married, and, through their continued love for each other, they may have a baby.

How can we communicate our values to our daughter in a manner that in no way adversely impacts her views of her cousin?

— Father Is Perplexed

Dear Father Is Perplexed:You’re less perplexed than you think. In choosing to support your cousin despite a belief that a love-marriage-baby formula makes sense, you have already made the exact calculation that you want to convey to your daughter.

So, you just need to figure out why you’re expressing joy and supporting your cousin, instead of scolding, fretting over or shunning her. continues on Austin American-Statesman
