The book is kind of a funny how to manual and running commentary on the care and feeding of two teenage daughters and a pre-teen boy.There is the expected chaos, the hormones, the constant state of crisis of the teenager's mind set, the physical changes, and the heart warming helplessness of the formerly protective parent no longer sure of what or how to protect his children.
My biggest complaint is that this book contains nothing new.
His humor or guffaw level is also somewhere in between, that is, his observations are funnier than Erma, but I've never gotten the fall down on the floor belly laughs that Dave can sometimes produce. Since when his kids were kids, and he didn't have a syndicated column yet.
In fact, his career could be described as another blogger made good.
From the kid's perspective, his behavior might actually justify their behavior. And while my daughter is only one, I can believe having these same conversations and encountering these same situations with her.
If Cameron is right, then there is nothing I can do about it, but at least I will be ready for it.
