Quotes:

“With our 14-year-old, we’re not involved anymore because he’s outclassed us. We can no longer help him. Our son’s schoolwork looks crazy to us. I feel terrible for him, because he should have parents who can help him. I look at him and have to say, “I’m sorry, I’m a talk show host; I just don’t know how to do that.” – Kelly on the joys of helping her eldest son with his homework.

“I respect [his wishes]. This year he said, “I’m the only kid at school who gets dropped off and whose mother picks him up. I don’t want that anymore.” I said, “Fine.” Now, when the bus comes, I wait on the opposite corner, across the street, and I watch him walk home with his friends. He doesn’t know I’m there. He’s never seen me. I’m literally like a cat burglar following him home. In my opinion, when you take your eyes off them, sometimes they can get in a lot of trouble. He’s a very sweet kid, but I still hold on to that little ounce of keeping an eye on him. I do it my way, so he doesn’t have to know. He still has his freedom, but it’s a monitored freedom. I’m sure there will be a parenting expert reading this and saying I’m doing it wrong. I read that book How to Hug a Porcupine [by Julie Ross] — it’s my parenting bible. They say you have to trust your children and give them freedom. I say, OK, but this is New York City!” – Kelly on parenting Michael.
