The TODAY Parenting Team is a community where anyone can write posts, ask questions and share advice. I’m honored to be on the TODAY Parents Contributor Team. Here’s my most recent post.

Within every family, there’s always the first child who is the “trailblazer child.” There’s pressure on that first child because he or she is the one who starts it all for you and kinda becomes your parenting gauge for all the others.

In our family it’s my William. He’s 13 years old and the oldest of 5 kids. He has 3 brothers right behind him in age – 10, 11, 12 and a little sister, Victoria, who just turned 5 years old. William’s always been the typical oldest child, naturally born into the role and has just always been the leader of the pack. I always joke with the others that we’re going to mess up completely on William and be totally, over-the-top helicopter parents, and by the time Victoria comes along into teenage-hood, she’ll be free as a bird to do anything!

Totally kidding.
