Former supermodel Helena Christensen says parenting is a breeze.

Helena, who is now a professional photographer, says that giving birth to her son Mingus (now 10) was the difficult part of being a parent, and the rest is a piece of cake. She also is amazed by the miracle of it all.  "It’s the only true miracle still left in this world — that as a women you can give birth to another human being and get to be with this little person and watch them evolve. Everyday is exciting."

Helena says she would never give others parenting advice. "When you have a child, you learn something new every day and I couldn’t give any precise rules because there aren’t any. Every child is different. You’re different. I worried a lot when I had Mingus; the responsibility is so heavy if you think about it. If you think too much about it, it drives you crazy, so just let it happen."  That souns like pretty sound advice, to me. 

What's the best piece of parenting advice (or non-advice) that you've heard?
