Parenting Giveaway

From the executive producers of the box-office hit Parenthood, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind), and writer/executive producer Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), comes the story of the colorful and imperfect Braverman family - four grown siblings sharing the headaches, heartaches, and joy of being parents. When Sarah Braverman (Graham), a financially strapped single mother, returns to her family home she is greeted by her opinionated father, Zeek (Nelson), and strong mother, Camille (Bedelia), who are privately dealing with
their own marital issues. As Sarah is reunited with her siblings - sister, Julia (Christensen), and brothers Crosby (Shepard) and Adam (Krause) - all struggling with issues of their own, it’s clear that the Braverman reunion is just what they need to face the everyday challenges of modern family life.

To enter leave a comment telling me what the best parenting advice you've ever gotten is. A winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday March 9th.


  1. Ooh! I would love to win this! Best parenting advice came from my mom "Enjoy your new baby and cuddle, kiss and squeeze them as much as you can."

    The new show looks great!

  2. The best parenting advice given to me is to stock up on diapers while they're on sale!

  3. Shower your kids with love, but never lose control over them! That's what I've learnt in my development psychology class!

  4. The best parenting advice my parents taught me was to always let your kids know how much you love them. Don't be afraid to tell them how much you love them and shower them with hugs and kisses. =)

  5. People say, "spare the rod and spoil the child", but on the contrary, I've never been beaten by my parents and I think they did a wonderful job! All it requires is some reasoning and understanding! Thanks daddy, mummy!


  6. 'You can't spoil a newborn'. I did LOTS of it! :)

  7. The best parenting advice I've got (so far) is to forget the advice in books and follow my instincts. I'm a "by the rules" kinda girl, and once I just let it all go things became much easier and I became less anxious. Now I'm enjoying every moment instead of counting, logging, and fretting.

  8. The best advice I've got so far is to follow my instincts and forget the books. I am a "by the rules" kinda girl. Once I finally allowed myself to follow my instincts, my parenting is now relaxed and I'm enjoying every moment, rather than anxiously fretting all the time.

  9. The best parenting sdvice that I ever got was don't be afraid to ask for help or advice, because there is so much to learn and not everything you can read in a book is true and every child is different. Be open to advice from friends or family that have children sometimes the best you can do is open your mind to others and their advice.

  10. You cant spoil a baby, so love them as much as they need, and you will both be happy.

  11. My sister gave me the best advice, Dont have kids

  12. Enjoy your children when they are young. Take advantage of the times as youngsters when they want your attention and want to be with you. It seems to fade quickly as they get older.

  13. Be consistent, children really appreciate consistency.
    I hope I win, I love BT

  14. Do the best I can and accept that.

  15. Take a nap. Let it go. Remember that these years fly and they will never come back. Savour every moment -- even the messy, frustrating, "you've got to be kidding me" moments.
