Do you want to ensure your child needs counseling? Pick on of these ways to traumatize your children - you can be a: Controller, a Pusher, a Narcissist, an Indulger, a Best Friend, a Self-Esteem Killer or a Neglecter. For even more trauma you can mix and match or choose two or more types to be at once.
Yet it's also a bit more than funny. You can read it and recognize that some of it is indeed true. I would say that this book takes some of the parenting styles we might fall into and takes it to the extreme. Are you an indulger? Well then, be sure to buy your child the biggest, best car available as soon as he can drive. Are you a controller? Then be sure to pick the wife your son marries. This advice on how to be one of these types of parents to the extreme comes with advice, suggestions about how to talk to those judgmental people who don't like how you parent and some of the positive outcomes from being this type of parent. Just remember it's ALL tongue in cheek.
If you take this book too seriously, you will be going into your own counseling sessions. We all fall into these parenting styles at times. Do we go out on a date night with our husbands and leave the kids at home? Yup, sometimes. Do we spoil our kids sometimes? Yup. The key is sometimes. All of us are just doing the best we can and if you are like me you will recognize yourself in this book in almost every chapter because you will find you do some of the things the author mentions. Just remember, parenting is about doing the best you can, not going to extremes in any one area.
Now I have to go buy another one for my friend.
