What happens to Queen Bees and Wannabes when they grow up? Even the most well-adjusted moms and dads can experience peer pressure and conflicts with other adults that make them act like theya€™re back in seventh grade. In Queen Bee Moms a Kingpin Dads, Rosalind Wiseman gives us the tools to handle difficult situations involving teachers and other parents with grace. Reassuring, funny, and unfailingly honest, Wiseman reveals: a€c Why PTA meetings and Back-to-School nights tap into parentsa€™ deepest insecurities a€c How to recognize the archetypal moms and dadsa€”from Caveman Dad to Hovercraft Mom a€c How and when to step in and step out of your childa€™s conflicts with other children, parents, teachers, or coaches a€c How to interpret the code phrases other parents use to avoid (or provoke) confrontation a€c Why too many well-meaning dads sit on the sidelines, and how vital it is that they step up to the plate a€c What to do and say when the playing field becomes an arena for people to bully and dominate other kids and adults a€c How to have respectful yet honest conversations with other parents about sex and drugs when your values are in conflict a€c How the way you handle parties, risky behavior, and academic performance affects your child a€c How unspoken assumptions about race, religion, and other hot-button subjects sabotage parentsa€™ ability to work together Queen Bee Moms a Kingpin Dads is filled with the kind of true stories that made Wisemana€™s New York Times bestselling book Queen Bees a Wannabes impossible to put down. There are tales of hardworking parents with whom any of us can identify, along with tales of outrageously bad parentsa€”the kind we all have to reckon with. For instance, what do you do when parents donate a large sum of money to a school and their child is promptly transferred into the honors programa€“while your son with better grades doesna€™t make the cut? What about the mother who helps her daughter compose poison-pen e-mails to yours? And what do you say to the parent-coach who screams at your child when the team is losing? Wiseman offers practical advice on avoiding the most common parenting a€œland minesa€ and useful scripts to help you navigate difficult but necessary conversations. Queen Bee Moms a Kingpin Dads is essential reading for parents today. It offers us the tools to become wiser, more relaxed parentsa€“and the inspiration to speak out, act according to our values, show humility, and set the kind of example that will make a real difference in our childrena€™s lives.
