One of those humorous looks at parenthood and all the fun adventures children bring. I'll make you chuckle! ( )

Humorous look at parenting. The IM slang is a tad alarming. If anybody actually used the words "skrilla" I'd laugh at them until they wet themselves and cried.

In among the hillarious ideas that we'd all love to try with our kids or suggestions that are (I hope) intended to show us how silly parenting can be sometimes (ie, child-proofing the house) are some actual useful tips, like how to get gum out of hair. There's also a great script for the Birds and the bees speech. Not quite the owners manual parents always wish we had, but it's still cute and fairly useful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811841553, Paperback)

Forget quicksand and shark attacks, child-rearing is the truly terrifying activity. A screaming baby on an airplane, no diapers (!), monsters hiding in the closet, a long family car trip, the first date—these are the high-risk adventures you need to survive. Fortunately, the authors of the phenomenally best-selling Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series now keep parents safe, from cradle to teens. Hands-on, step-by-step instructions show you how to remove objects stuck in a child's nose or gum stuck in hair, and how to survive endless soccer games, slumber parties, and sleep deprivation. From baby-proofing the house to dealing with a dead pet, from the perils of the play-date to explaining about the birds and the bees, this essential guide tells parents what to really expect when your worst-case scenario is all in the family.
