This woman is amazing!
 
Can this woman start teaching parenting classes! I love every word she says and if we had more people like this in our world we might be a little better off. Watch the videos...

I'm not your friend, kid! (Because I love you.)

And the follow up is equally amazing! Not your friend, kid, but always your ally.

parenting video
 
I have seen her videos before. I think it was the one about how to raise a brat. She's great! I wish every parent-to-be had to watch her videos. I think some parents don't realize that parenting is a job and, if you do it right, it will be hard. They just want a mini-me and all of the fun stuff!

It's both sad and heartening to read the comments that follow those videos. Sad because it's like she's some hero just for the way she sees motherhood (which leads me to believe there are way more people than I thought who have no clue how to parent and how the heck did I happen?) and heartening because it's good that parents who don't have a grasp of effective parenting are finding her videos and realizing they have merit.

I don't understand how we've somehow developed this idea of parenting as a friendship act. It's been developing over time, but it's shocking that the ideas that this mom has put forth in the videos is "new stuff" to so many parents.
