What today's parenting lingo would have meant to our moms:
- Floor time Time spent waxing the kitchen floor
- Time-Out A short break during a sporting event, or taking a break from the laundry to watch Days of Our Lives
- Kindergarten readiness Your kid's fifth birthday
- Use your words "Knock it off, kids!"
- Quality time Reading the paper in the car outside the theater where the kids are seeing The Bad News Bears
- Teachable moments School
