  • Quotes

    • Lynne: (about her daughter Jamie Lynn's teen pregnancy) Jamie Lynn had never done anything to raise an eyebrow. Then there was the day when she and [boyfriend] Casey came to me, and she said, "Mama, I'm pregnant, I'm keeping the baby, and everything's gonna be all right." I just looked at her unreadable face, and I knew it was true. I screamed, "You told me you were a virgin!" Then I turned to Casey and said, "And you! You promised you wouldn't hurt her like this!" He just hung his head. I thought, "I must be the most naive mom in the world." Everyone tried to talk her out of keeping the baby. So many people in our family told her to get an abortion, but I'm proud to say that she never wavered.

    • Lynne: It always startles me when I hear that some folks think of me as a pushy stage mother. I never had the big, huge dreams of stardom for my kids that people seem to think I have. Why did I say yes to Britney's career? Simple. Because I wanted to help make her dream come true.

    • Lynne: (on why she decided to write a book) I wanted the truth out in my own words for myself and my family.

    • Lynne: (about her daughter Jamie Lynn having a baby at 17) She's been totally responsible. She is such an old soul and so wise for her young age. She'll love being the soccer mom, the carpool mom. That was the most fun I had as a mother. I'll go over as often as she wants to help out with the laundry and anything else she needs. I'm always ready for my phone call.

    • Lynne: My grandsons are so adorable! Of course, another little boy would be precious, but a little girl would be precious too. It doesn't matter so long as it's healthy — that's what's important.

    • Lynne (on her hopes for 2008): Health, peace, happiness and a real good healthy focus for life, for all [my children's] lives.

    • Lynne: Children and parents can love each other--that's nature's way--but it is important for them to truly like each other, as well.

    • Lynne (on premarital sex): I definitely don't think it's something you should do; it's better to wait. But I can't be judgmental because it's a position I put myself in.

    • Lynne (on her younger daughter Jamie Lynn's unexpected pregnancy): I didn't believe it because Jamie Lynn's always been so conscientious. She's never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby.

    • Lynne: Being a parent is more than just helping with homework, kissing scraped knees, or nursing the chicken pox. It's a lifelong job. Moreover, it's the most challenging--yet the most rewarding--job you will ever have.
