Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Congratulations You, as a parent, have managed to produce and raise a child who has made it into young adulthood. Now please, back off. Farther, farther ...

Your child needs the freedom to really find themselves and their place in the world and learn that their parents are just people ... flawed people who made terrible mistakes ...

Wait, no, that's too far. ?A little closer ... there.

Does your wallet feel a bit lighter? Good. ?That's the first lesson. Your child needs freedom and space, but most of all, they need your money, and you should give it to them because above all you are a good parent. ?And you'll need someone to visit you in the nursing home.

In addition to explaining why you should joyfully give your child all of your hard-earned cash, this book will also explain the nuances of communicating with your child. For example, do not e-mail your child that your family dog has died. Oh, and never have sex, nor utter the word. Ever.

Synopsis:

Twenty-somethings, or as Time magazine calls them, "Twixters," often find themselves, post-college, reevaluating their relationship with their parents. Packaged as an instructional guide to parents, this book for 20-somethings is a humorous take on adult childrens relationships with their invasive parents. Readers will find themselves secretly agreeing with everything in the book on a deeper level. Its a painful transition to see your parents as people with faults and who probably made grievous errors when they raised you. With case studies, illustrations, charts, graphs, bullet points, lists, and an index, this book lets you know that everyone feels that way.
