Is It Better to be the Cool Mom or the Old School Mom?

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

If I could only choose one I'd rather be the old school Mom

I think a good balance of both is great. However i am first and for most old school I'm not there to be a friend all the time until they are adults

I think if you parent them as young kids and do a good job then you can be there friend as teens and adults.
