Happy Mother’s Day, moms!  Way to pop them kids out and raise ’em right!  In honor of all you guys, I’m going to share a few words on the art of motherhood from the creator of one of America’s greatest train wrecks.  Hey, it’s never too late to learn something new, am I right?  All right, let’s let Dina drop some knowledge:

On Being a Single Mom: “The secret to single parenting is to just teach them what you can teach them … And you pray that instills in them for the rest of their life. You let them go, and if they fall, you’re there to pick them up.”

On Discipline: “The boys got into more mischief. Lindsay, I’m trying to think… she was always good in school and was like my little buddy. She never really got into too much mischief young. She was a late bloomer.”

On Being in the Spotlight: “No child’s perfect. They’re going to get into trouble, whether it’s big or small. Unfortunately, we’re a global name so they know about it in Indonesia. But just be there for your child, and if you see signs that they’re doing things they shouldn’t be doing, get them help.”

I could try to get into some serious discussion like I did yesterday about to what degree, if at all, a parent is responsible for her child’s fuck ups, or even some nature vs. nurture talk, but it’s early and it’s a holiday, so just let this all sink in and then call your mom, all right?
