Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation

Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation by Elizabeth Beckwith


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Yes, this is meant to be a "humor" title. At least mostly. 70% humorous? Actually, the percentage is probably pretty flexible. Elizabeth Beckwithtakes us on a ride through parenting that rides the edge between crazy, funny, and uncomfortably true. Wait. Can there be an edge between three things? Anyway. Fun stuff.

Um, I totally use guilt as a parenting tactic? Do I feel guilty about it? Nah. My mom used it on me too, and it does work pretty well. :) This author doesn't happen to be Catholic, does she?
