Rules for Raising Little Girls

"As the father of a daughter, I wish I'd read this very funny book sooner, if only to know that it's OK for a grown man to wear a tutu." --Dave Barry

"Required reading for any parent who doesn't know pants from leggings." --Dan Zevin, author of Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad

It's easy to imagine how you'd raise a boy--all the golf outings, lawnmower lessons, and Little League championships you'd attend--but playing dad to a little princess may take some education. In Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl, Brian, a father of three girls, shares his tactics for surviving this new and glittery world. From baby dolls and bedtime rituals to potty training and dance recitals, he leads you through all the trials and tribulations you'll face as you're raising your daughter. He'll also show you how to navigate your way through tough situations, like making sure that she doesn't start dating until she's fifty.

Complete with commandments for restroom trips and properly participating in a tea party, Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl will brace you for all those hours playing house--and psych you up for the awesomeness of raising a daughter who has you lovingly wrapped around her little finger.

"Somehow, Brian Klems has taken one of the most traumatic situations known to a father--having a daughter--and made it into something so completely hilarious you'll laugh until you've got oxygen deprivation!" --W. Bruce Cameron, author of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter

Although I don't have girls, this book prepared me for the possibility of one day having them. A very humorous writer, who shares in my dislike for pink and my love of the Cincinnati Reds! A quick & easy read, that is extremely enjoyable!

Hilarious and heartfelt.  A quick and hilarious read for dad, moms, aunts/uncles, grandparents or readers looking for a Dora the explorer drinking game.
