Songstress Tiffany: Fixer Parenting Style
With my friends I'm always acting as marriage counselor, organizer, support group—I'm totally that person. If my girlfriends had bad skin, I'd find them beauty products to use—even when I was 9! I'm also very opinionated and I like to voice my opinion. I open my mouth and I'm like, "Oooh, girl ...," ready to give advice or tell them what I think. It's in a loving way, but I just can't help it—it's my nature.
It's the same with my son. I'm really proud that he's on the route to college and tackling the hard stuff that's over my head. But even when I can't help him, I recruit friends who are smarter than me in those subjects and put him around those types of people so he can absorb the information in ways that make sense.
I'm always in a chaotic world, always on the road (living on a tour bus!), so I have to be very organized. In my personal space, I try to be responsible and stable.
I like to feel like I've accomplished something throughout the day, whether it's fixing a household item or helping someone with a hard time. If I have time off, I'll clean or organize. My husband laughs at me, but when everything is all nice and organized, I'm like, "Bring it on! What's next?!"
Besides being a mom, Tiffany is best known as a music artist, with hits like "I Think We're Alone Now," "Could've Been" and "Just Another Day."
