With a classification system that has every parenting style down to a 't', The Perfect Parents Handbook is unputdownable reading for anyone who's ever forked over major three figures for the "must have" stroller or agonized over what their children's school says about them as parents. The real facts and details in this book gently skewer modern mothers and fathers and will at the same time delight them with dead-on accuracy in describing the habits and accouterments of nine types, including: --The Neo-Trads: Dad makes the cupcakes and kids' artwork is everywhere (not just on the fridge); the family's taste always exceeds its wallet --The Martyr Parents: They've sacrificed so much for the kids that the kids have taken over the asylum --The Power Parents: The IV sessions that led to triplets were coordinated on mom and dad's Blackberries and the real British nanny swabs the babies' Burberry button-downs on the way to their five bedroom Park Avenue apartment --The Classic Parents: Everybody's in LL Bean and their 2.3 children all climb into a little red wagon to get to the SUV Laced with titillating facts about our child-centric culture (unique baby announcements! nursery decorators! mandatory volunteering at preschool!), The Perfect Parents Handbook decodes the complex and terrifying (smothering doulas! educational vacations to the rainforest!) world of raising kids.,
