Let your kids fail. To learn self-sufficiency, kids need to occasionally dust themselves off (literally and figuratively) without your help. "Most parents know what their children are capable of but step in to make things easier for them," says Sheri Noga, the author of Have the Guts to Do It Right: Raising Grateful and Responsible Children in an Era of Indulgence. Remember: Long-term benefits—a teenager who knows how to do her own laundry, for example—trump momentary discomfort. Before you rush in to help with any physical task, ask yourself: "Is my child in real danger?" Then—and this applies to other challenges, like the social studies poster due tomorrow—think about whether your child has the necessary skills (dexterity and balance) or simply adequate sleep and a snack. Yes? Time to back off and see what happens.

The good news: Rihanna is in the studio making music.

The bad news: An 8-month-old baby got the first listen and can't tell us anything.

The mogul dropped another hint that she was working on new music by sharing a photo of her friend Jennifer Rosales' baby sitting on a soundboard and wearing oversized headphones.

"Thank you @jennnrosalesand @the_aa for blessing my day a lil mo," wrote Bad Gal Ri Ri to Instagram.

Rosales, Rihanna's longtime friend, also shared the photo of her child and captioned it: "When tia @badgalririgives you the first listen."

OK great, now that all the sentimental, mushy stuff is out of the way, what does the baby think of Ri Ri's new music?!

The only clues we have is the baby's facial expression: Confused? Shocked? Surprised?
