This book is simply a fun gift to give anyone who's about to become a parent or for someone who's already a parent. We are always hearing advice from people on how to raise their children whether it's been asked for or not. While everyone has different ideas on how children should be raised, I find it amusing when I get parenting advice from those without children. They seem to be the ones who have all the answers, all the solutions, all the right things to say all the time. If only we took their advice, our children would eat what's put in front of them without complaining, they would go to bed every night at the same time without fighting for "just 5 more minutes", they would do as they are told. We would have it so much easier if we just listened to them. "This is what I would do" is something we hear on a regular basis. "If I were you..." is another one. I have the luxury of having 3 siblings who, while none are parents, always have the best advice. If you want a good laugh or a fun gift to give a friend who just loves getting unsolicited advice on their parenting skills, this book will certainly be appreciated.
