Are children taking the fun out of parenting?

A new book suggests parenting is "All Joy and No Fun." Author Jennifer Senior says that kids are becoming the bosses in today's families and she believes parents need to stop the mantra of "I just want my kids to be happy."

    I agree children are becoming the bosses. That happened when parents had their rights taken from them to discipline them properly–not abuse (neither emotional nor physical - I was a victim of abuse)–just good discipline.
