Parenting advice I follow:
Now that my boys are grown, I always, always try to listen, be open to their ideas, and try to be non-judgmental.
Parenting advice I ignore:
"Don't say no - always explain your reasons to your children." Hogwash! When they were young it was VITAL to say "NO!" sometimes and have them obey- just because I said so. If they won't obey you as a 3 yr old they certainly won't obey you as a teenager!
Favorite activity with my kids:
Communicating: talking, emailing, phone conversations - anything I can get during this time that they're so busy with their college lives.

  • Hi Anne,
    I do not only enjoy your articles, but I appreciate your comments on my articles just as much.
    You are right - we all (Moi included) have to remember ourselves about the realities surrounding us -- doing things "the old way" it's a lot easier, but no longer the name of the game.
    How is your new business going?
    I see you admire Seth Godin too. I happen to be reading his book on spreading ideas "Unleashing the Ideavirus" -- I recommend it. It's a very interesting piece of paper who can benefit many just-about-to-launch-businesses".
    Cheers,
    Lorena.
