I found this book to be very funny and it made me laugh aloud! This world needs more smiles, laughter and zany perspectives about life's experiences. The author does a masterful job of finding humor in the challenges of raising kids. I would recommend this book to anyone who has kids, has had kids, is considering having kids or was a kid. It was easy to relate to in many different ways. Although I enjoyed the entire book, my favorite section was "Letters to Dr. Tim."

Guess what? You don’t have to have kids to enjoy this very funny book! As an Aunt with LOTS of experience babysitting nieces and nephews, I found this book easy to relate to AND hilarious. A FUN read!! Tim’s writing style is intelligent, clever and honest. Great book to give as a gift to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, even babysitters!

I don’t know if you have to be a parent to enjoy this book as much as I did, but I think it helps. There is a sort of sly experienced wisdom to the broad comedy Tim Jones deploys so deftly, and it helps strike the balance every parent recognizes between sheer absurdity of life with kids and the unexpectedly profound moments that seem to come wrapped in angst, tears, unidentifiable goo, and head-shaking. I recommend You’re Grounded for Life whether you’re early in the kid-raising going or an old hand whose offspring are safely parceled off someplace far from home, and especially encourage it as a baby-shower gift to first-timers-- you can’t be too prepared and this book could well be that long-sought-after text on what is really ahead.

Great fun! I wish I had Tim's spot on advice when I was raising my kids. I can only hope I will be able to apply his wisdom to my grandkids. Must read for parents who've been there - and for those who have the road yet to travel.

A witty, honest and fun read for parents, for people thinking about becoming parents, and for those looking for reasons to avoid becoming parents.
