I am obviously through with my mothering of young children and have been in the years of mothering adults and grandmothering people from age 8 through earlyish twenties. Regardless, I enjoy watching the Supernanny shows -- both the British and the American ones. But there is one thing that really bothers me -- A Whole Lot! -- about both nannies. Have you noticed that both nannies seem seem oblivious about the fact that they often place their "naughty" areas right by electrical outlets? And they are often not covered! What are these people thinking??!! I was not a perfect mother -- far from that! But I studied parenting -- books, radio shows, TV shows, and the study of parents (both great and horrible) and children -- and did the very best I understood. My children were easy to parent, which is a good thing, because I was widowed early and had to do it by myself for many years. Later, I experienced step-mothering, which was a whole different experience. Then along came my first grandchild -- my first experience with an extremely strong-willed child. That would require a whole chapter of his own, but the point is he is now a man and a fine man indeed. Let's talk about the Supernannies, parenting, grandparenting, and all things like that.
