Your parenting style matters. As a parent, you have the incredible opportunity to shape your child's development and help them reach their full potential. It's important to recognize that your parenting style will have a powerful influence on your child's beliefs, values, and behaviors. It says a lot about who you are as a person and the type of relationship you have with your children. It can reveal what type of values you prioritize and how you view the world. By understanding and reflecting on your parenting style, you can make positive changes that will help your children succeed.

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Babies were kept in cages in the early 20th century

Dr. Luther Emmett Holt wrote a book in 1884 that encouraged parents to "air" their children. His recommendation was to place their bassinet near an open window, but in the early 1920s, many parents purchased baby cages and installed them on a window (much like a modern-day window air-conditioner). They put their children in these cages, sometimes many stories above the ground. Even Eleanor Roosevelt put her daughter Anna in a chicken-wire cage she purchased after the child's birth! While it's not entirely clear when the practice fell out of style, many suspect it resulted from growing concerns about child safety toward the middle of the century.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
