"You’re A Good Mom"

I read this great write-up in the April 2008 issue of Parenting magazine. It’s from a new book by Jen Singer that is out this month called, You’re a Good Mom (and your kids aren’t so bad either): 14 Secrets to Finding Happiness Between Super Mom and Slacker Mom.

Here’s what she says about what today’s parenting lingo would have meant to our moms:

  • Floor Time – Time spent waxing the kitchen floor while the kids amuse themselves in the playpen.
  • Time-Out – A short break during a sporting event, or taking a break from the laundry to watch Days of Our Lives.
  • Kindergarten Readiness – Your kid’s fifth birthday.
  • Use Your Words – “Knock it off, kids!”
  • Quality Time – Reading the paper in the car outside the theater where the kids are seeing The Bad News Bears.
  • Teachable Moments – School.
