Overview

Let's face it-kids have hated their parents since the beginning of time. The goal is to minimize the tension and find the happy ending. Is it possible to raise a child who doesn't blame you for everything? According to author, actor, and father Alan Thicke, the answer is a resounding "maybe!"

Of course, you can assure your kids' devotion if you do the following:

  • Buy them everything they want
  • Agree that homework is for losers
  • Answer questions about sex by offering your room and body lotions
  • Or learn from Alan's more practical and entertaining solutions, with input from respected psychologists, educators-and parole officers

You'll laugh out loud at Thicke's twist on everything from homework to the prom, and find answers to questions like "Are my children playing the right games with the right kids at the right schools? How will I handle her first swear word and his first dead pet-or his first fight and her first unrequited crush? Are we being good enough friends and tough enough parents?"

Delve into the pages of "How to Raise Kids Who Won't Hate You" and get ready to learn, love, and laugh.

    Another hit by Alan Thicke

    I think Alan's second book was wonderful. It was amusing, yet insightful.

    Funny and enjoyable

    I found Alan's second book to be as enjoyable as his first. He took everyday topics with children and found the lighter side of some of the hard to deal with situations. He shared his own personal experiences and stories. I recommend this book highly.
