"She goes a long way with her book to prove that humor is the best -- possibly the only -- way to keep the world on an even keel."
Remember the things Mother used to say? Erma Bombeck remembers them all and now she's using them on her own kids! With clever illustrations by Bil Keane, these really funny, too-true observations on family and kids and why it shouldn't work but does, is a wonderful antitdote to the daily problems and crises that every family faces. With Erma Bombeck in your corner, laughter is the best coach you can have....

About the Author
Bil Keane never formally studied art, but by faithfully re-creating the world around him, he developed the phenomenally successful cartoon panel The Family Circus. Through the years, Keane made his family life the center of his professional world and always tried to portray the typical American family. Bil died in November 2011. His son, Jeff, who worked with his father for years, remains at the helm of the great feature and continues his dad’s tradition of putting a smile on readers’ faces every day.

I love Erma Bombeck! Her humor was absolutely brilliant.
I loved this book. I laughed until my sides hurt. I didn't realize that my family, and my teenage children were actually 'normal', and that they are doing what other teenage kids do. Not only did this book help me laugh, and loosen up, but it helped me realize that my kids are just being kids. That they are in a growth stage, and that I don't need to be so worried about them. Erma has allowed me to see that our family is not a freak of nature, but pretty much normal. Well, as normal as her family--is that normal? Well, it's close enough for me, and things around here are going to be less controlled and more relaxed. We might even be able to laugh more. A lot more.
I have always loved Erma. Her wit about families and teens is great. I plan on reading each and every book
