Capitol Broadcasting Company has once again made Carolina Parent’s Family-Friendly 50.   The publication honored CBC and other organizations at the annual Wo+men@Work breakfast at American Tobacco’s Bay 7 on Thursday, September 16, 2010.

Several CBC’ers who assisted in the nomination were on hand to celebrate CBC’s fifth inclusion on the prestigious state-wide list.

Celia Rivenbark, journalist & author of You Can’t Drink All Day If You Don’t Start In The Morning and Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank served as the keynote speaker for the morning event.

“Thing I hate most about parenting is we spend a lot of time trying to one up each other,” Rivenbark quipped as she told a hilarious story about parents doing their children’s science projects.  She mused that “kids have to learn how to fail” as she spoke of what she called “helicopter parents” who try avoid all pain and hardship for their children.

And as she closed, she addressed the reason for the breakfast, honoring companies who help their employees with their demanding work-life balance.  She said, “Children benefit most from parents who feel fulfilled in what they do.”

Each year Carolina Parent honors North Carolina companies for their flexibility with employees, family-friendly benefits and other features that help parents and their families.
