Catering to the generation that has been handed the world on an Ikea plate and has prospered in an unprecedented age of peace and economic growth, this entertaining reference contains laugh-out-loud anecdotes on parents and parenting. Equally perfect for those who jump at the slightest cough from a babythermometer in one hand, telephone in the other, and finger poised to speed dial the doctoras it is for those who cover the fridge with the scrawled masterpieces of their toddlers to encourage their artistic genius, this guide both satirizes and comforts parents. From documenting the lives of parents who lie awake at night fretting that they didn't inculcate their eight-year-old with enough self-esteem to those who anticipate disaster if anyone has undocumented nut allergies at a birthday party, this hilarious handbook is guaranteed to give peace of mind to even the most high-strung moms and dads.
