In the families where both parents work, this may be a problem: they have to look for a babysitter which requires additional expenses and being ready to trust your child with a complete stranger. Besides, family ties are not as strong anymore, so nobody can be sure that one of the partners won’t just leave the family at any moment. But, because the birth rate is dropping, even in developing countries, at a certain moment the number of people on the planet will decrease to an optimal number.

Single-parent family is a unit where a parent lives with children without a partner. Some argue that family breakdown has a negative effects for kids, families, and society. Since single parents have a hectic schedule, children will become more responsible. While their parents are not around, they will do the chore and other stuff themselves without the help from someone else. Cleaning the home, washing clothes, cooking their breakfast on a regular basis promote independence, improve confidence, boost self-worth, and establish a good work ethic. The expectations are easier to understand.

Perfect parents, two great sisters and a younger brother. All my life, I thought I had the perfect family. We all got along well. But during the last several years, my parents had started to fight more and more. My dad came home less and less, working more hours than ever in Vermont. Perfect parents, two great sisters and a younger brother. I was sure as word got around that the other kids would laugh and make fun of me. Some did. But, there were a lot of kids, however, who didn’t say a word.

I too was a parent in France, having given birth to my son there some 15 years ago, after having a daughter, now 20, in England, and her sister, now 16, in Belgium. In fact, it wasn’t until 18 months ago, when my husband and I finally returned to the States, that I first experienced motherhood in America.

Parent-children conflicts are commonplace too. As parents assert their authority, and children try to assert their . At the same time, many factors external to both the child and family can influence the way a child develops. As parents assert their authority, and children try to assert their autonomy appropriately, strife is inevitable. While we often expect families to be above the chaos that exists in the rest of society, that outlook places unrealistic expectations upon the family. In the real world, families are not always a haven, since they, too, can be filled with conflict. Even within the same family there can be tremendous individual variations among siblings in intelligence, temperament, mood, and sociability.

I have to say as a school principal in Greenwich Village NY that I had more than a few chuckles while reading this wonderfully funny book about parenting. Parenting is a serious business, but we will only do it well if we can laugh at ourselves and this book will make you laugh.

What with the state of the world and contemporary concerns, this book is a refreshing wake up call about our priorities. The author pokes fun at our myopia and paranoia about child rearing and makes us laugh, not only at others, but also ourselves. That's its power; it's fun and refreshing with a twist of revelation.

Conlin really hits the spot in this timely analysis of what parenting is all about in our modern world. Funny and endlessly entertaining, any parent will get a big kick out of reading this sly take on what makes us all tick as we raise our kids. It doesn't matter where you are from, analyzing how American parents raise their kids (in contrast to the current craze for French parenting style), is a good read.

don't bother--silly stuff

This book is one of those rare pleasures-- it is an intelligent AND hilarious look at modern parenting. The book is totally original-- it goes way beyond cliches about our hyper-parenting culture, as it looks at the subtleties of different breeds of parents. It would appeal to anyone who wants a good laugh about modern foibles, as well as to anyone who has ever been, or known, a parent. And it is a page-turner-- just when you think you must have read all the best parts, you go on to the next section and laugh all over again! I also like the fact that in spite of all its incisive humor, in the end it is positive and reassuring.

A fabulous gift, and at this price, a smart stocking-stuffer!

I loved the Perfect Parents Handbook. It was hysterically funny; so funny, in fact, that every one I know is getting one for Christmas. Jennifer Conlin has a very good take on the whole parenting scene and there is nothing else like this book on the market. One of my favorite parts of the book is when she describes the way different parents approach a trip to Disney World. The photos and graphics throughout are also very funny. Every parent should read this book.

This book is a pleasure to read. The humor is laugh-out-loud funny. You will recognize the parents at preschool pick-up, your child's soccer coach, the book fair organizer, and even (gasp) yourself. It feels so good to laugh off the stress of parenting in these high-pressure times. Well done!!!
Conlin is absolutley hilarious. Witty and funny, the book never fails to make me smile, an excellent gift for teacher and new and old parents, or anyone who wants a laugh.
