I found out yesterday that I had not been chosen, so I’ve had some time to think about how I feel about that. Here’s what I’ve got. 1) Yes, I’m disappointed, [...]<img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=themommyrevolution.wordpress.com&blog=4704576&post=927&subd=themommyrevolution&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

Guest post by Helen Lee By now, you’ve surely heard about the infamous Wall Street Journal article entitled “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior,” based on Amy Chua’s new book, The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.

Caryn: So I’ve hardly been able to recognize myself lately. Something about me has really changed. Or, I should say, something has gone missing. Here’s the deal: as I’ve watched our dear guru Carla progress on her GMA Guru search competition (Top 4!

3 New Year’s Resolutions Every Parent Needs to Make

Carla: Don’t you love titles like that? Commanding, demanding, shaming you into doing what someone else tells you to do? It’s that word needs. It carries so much condescension and know-it-all-ness.
