Overview

From the creators of those fabulous Berenstain Bears, a fresh, funny, and truthful look at what your mom and dad never told you about being a parent. In the style of Erma Bombeck, What Your Parents Never Told You About Being a Mom or Dad mixes humor with practical advice on navigating the treacherous waters of parenthood. With their books about siblings, babysitters, junk food, and fear of the dark, the Berenstains have helped millions of children face the pressures and pains of growing up. Now they have turned their attention to the parents of their legions of fans. In their witty, inimitable style, the Berenstains cover the ins and outs of parenting and offer trenchant pointers for parents to live and learn by: how to handle wild children in airports, Little League (it brings out the best in kids and the worst in parents), the dreaded teen years (drive home values before puberty strikes!), and much more. And throughout the book are those wonderful Berenstain illustrations we know and love.

In a fresh and funny, trenchant and truthful look at what it means to be a parent, the creators of the popular Berenstain Bears' children's books help parents feel the same ways in their grown-up lives that children do about the scary, tempting, and happy things they encounter daily. 19 line drawings.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creators of the Berenstain Bears books for children now take a fresh and funny look at parenting in the '90s. Just about everything is covered, including how to entertain kids with balloons (``a rainy day activity for brain-dead parents''), handle children at airports, turn them into great readers and deal with each age from diapers to the daunting teenage years. Common sense and lighthearted advice are peppered with acerbic observations-``Only you can inoculate your son against the ugly and destructive macho code''-and illustrated with line drawings in the inimitable Berenstain style. Author tour. (Feb.)
Library Journal
The creators of the Berenstain Bears children's books offer childcare advice with a humorous twist.
