Although Pete Wentz‘s new baby boy is too young to understand his father’s occupation, the Fall Out Boy bassist’s oldest son, Bronx, knows what his dad does — and he’s not impressed.

“[He] comes to our shows, but it’s the equivalent to me going to my dad’s job when I was a kid. At the end of the day, it’s Dad’s job,” Wentz told PEOPLE at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday.

“All I am to him is his dad. When he sees people want to take a picture with me, he thinks it’s hilarious.”

In fact, adds Wentz, his 5½-year-old is completely “uninterested” in his dad’s rock star status.

Georgina Bloomberg: Why I Want to Teach My Son How to Lose

As an internationally renowned equestrian, Georgina Bloomberg is well-versed in winning. But when it comes time for her son Jasper to learn how to ride and compete, she has something else in mind entirely.

“I like the idea of teaching kids how to lose. That’s a really important lesson in life,” Bloomberg, who won Thursday’s grand prix at the Central Park Horse Show Presented by Rolex, tells PEOPLE.

“I don’t like the idea of doing leadline where everyone gets a blue ribbon,” she says of the horse show class for the littlest riders. “I think it’s unrealistic for kids and teaches the wrong lesson.”

So when Jasper makes the move from rocking horse to a real pony, he’ll ride in the judged classes where the riders are placed, says Bloomberg, 31. “My friends’s kids who got a blue ribbon every time are now starting to compete in other classes where that doesn’t happen and they struggle with not winning every class.”

“It’s really nice to teach kids that, listen, you’re not going to win every time out. And that’s OK.”

When Sheila McCraith realized her handyman had caught her screaming at her four sons, she knew she needed to change.

“I was beyond mortified by my behavior,” she tells PEOPLE. “I could no longer accept that yelling at my kids wasn’t a problem.”

The next morning, McCraith woke up with a plan: Go 365 days without raising her voice. But she quickly realized that keeping calm throughout the day centered around one very big obstacle — tantrums!

To keep herself accountable, the mom-of-four set up The Orange Rhino Challenge, where she shared her stories and sought support from fellow frustrated parents.

Fast forward one year later and McCraith completed her goal — and her family couldn’t be happier.

Time changes everything — just ask Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott.

The band recently wrapped their Take Me Downtown tour and while they’ve sorted out the bus situation, the first-time mom admits she’s still adjusting to taking 13-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye out on the road.

“It’s a lot to juggle,” Scott, 28, tells PEOPLE. “When I’m on the road and touring, my whole day revolves around when I need to get ready, so by a certain time I need to be taking a shower and if I’m 10 minutes late, then it’s going to make the rest of the day shift.”

Adds the singer, “It can get stressful.”

Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shannon Miller calls her 15-month-old daughter Sterling her “miracle baby.”

Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer (her older child, son Rocco, was 1 at the time) and lost her left ovary and fallopian tube. But before Sterling was even a thought, the Olympian was going through chemo and speaking publicly about her diagnosis when a stranger changed her life.

“This woman came up to me and took my hand, right before I went on the podium, and said, ‘I just want you to know, I had the exact same tumor. That was 10 years ago. I have two beautiful children. And you’re going to make it,'” an emotional Miller told PEOPLE at the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network‘s Cancer Lobby Day in Washington, D.C., Thursday.
