How To Raise Your Parents by Sarah O’Leary Burningham
Posted May 10, 2008on:
Before you were born, your parents probably read books like “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”, among other parenting books and magazines. You’re still here so they obviously worked but now you’re a teenager. You want a cellphone. You want to go on a date. You want FREEDOM. But your parents hold the key to all of it and they don’t want to give it you.
How To Raise Your Parents is a how-to guide to convincing your parents why you really do need a cell phone, learing “Parent Lingo”, and avoiding future embarrassment the next time your boyfriend come over.
I found How To Raise Your Parents a hilarious book. Many of the tatics explained seem like they might actually work and I’ve actually tried a few of them. Sarah talks directly to the teen reader as she explains everything and it’s written in a style that I’m sure every teen would enjoy. So whether or not you feel the need to train your parents, I suggest you pick up a copy of How To Raise Your Parents when you see it!
