"Parenting wisdom from 7 celebs"

Okay, I'm not going to attempt to include the link, because I don't want LiveJournal to toss me into a moderation queue, but this was featured on the parentscanada [dot] com website, and the blurb below the big, honking pic of Lynn reads:
Honesty is the best (parenting) policy

Always tell your children the truth… about feelings and relationships and money. If you are wrong, admit it. If you have no money for something, say so. If you are angry about something, explain your anger as best you can so your kids won’t feel that they are the source of your anger. If you respect them, they will respect you in return.

Lynn Johnston, mother of grown children Aaron and Katie, artist and author of the world-syndicated comic strip For Better or For Worse.

The other featured "celebs" are Eric Peterson, Marilyn Denis, Molly Johnson, Adam Beach, Silken Laumann, and Arlene Dickinson. I've never heard of any of them....

The article was linked on the official FB page.
