I started writing books about raising kids because I have pretty firm views about what parenting is all about. (My wife is a teacher who sees the good, the bad and the ugly results of parenting every day.) My books are short, quick and to the point. I don’t dwell on the existentialism of parenthood. I talk about the challenges, the hilarity, the love and the realities. I always knew men preferred books like that. It turns out moms and teenagers do too.

Accept the fact that
boys and girls are

My mission is to change some views: it’s time we start being parents to our kids, not trying to be their best friend ever. It’s time we start preparing them for the real world that awaits, not spending thousands of dollars on giving them the bestus six year old birthday party in the world. It’s time we model adult behavior for our kids, not try and act like fifteen year olds ourselves. I also have strong views about faith which irritates some people but it’s their offspring clogging the juvenile system. So, that’s what I’m about. You’ll find some great links here as well as well as links to my never boring blog. And about four million people believe you’ll find some really cool books.

Also I have two books that young adults about to enter the adult world find incredibly helpful:

1001 Things Every Teen Should Know Before They Leave Home (frequently purchased by 20-somethings) and 1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know.

I’m always interested in what you have to say, so email me here.

They should know
adulthood is not for sissies.

Treasure your time
with your son.
