We're shaking things up and letting Joanie run the show! She's joined in this episode by The Stir's Ericka Soúter and Mary Fischer, as well as Johanna Torres from Qué Más. All four moms share their struggles of balancing discipline with desperately wanting their children to think they're cool. Where do you come down on the debate?

I think a good mix of both is great.

I tend to be more old fashioned. If I say it, I mean it, I will follow through.

I want to be a good mix between the two. I want my kids and their friends to have fun with me, but I also want them to understand that there are rules and there are punishments when those rules are broken.
