Making sure at all times your kids are successfully beaten.
"I once had magical powers, and I wished that my house was larger and considered cooking the television, later I did parenting."
Being a parent. (Children optional.) (I mean, seriously, if it were about children the term would mention children.) (But it's "parenting," which means it's all about me, the parent, and the child, if any, is merely an accessory, like my handbag or my iPhone.) (Only more expensive.)
My mother and father all but killed themselves raising my brothers and sisters and me. I'm so glad my generation invented parenting instead.
