I Am So the Boss of You: An 8-Step Guide to Giving Your Family the "Business"by Kathy Buckworth
Synopses & Reviews
Praise for Kathy Buckworth:
• "Journey to the Darkside is the rare exception to the rule of supposedly funny mommy memoirs (the rule being that people should stop publishing them). Buckworth is perceptive, smart and absolutely hilarious." — The Toronto Star
• "Buckworth's observations and advice are free of illusions, but full of laughs." — Today's Parent
• "You can't make this stuff up, right? [Buckworth is] a mom who's unafraid to tell it like it is down in the trenches of modern momdom. And guess what? With her comedic spin, you actually wouldn't want it any other way." — Alyson Schafer, author of Honey, I Wrecked the Kids
• "In the super competitive culture of the uber-mom, Kathy Buckworth has the courage to call it like she sees it — even if it means she could be banned from both the boardroom and the playroom!" — Joy Rose, founder and executive director of Mamapalooza Inc.
A hilarious, tongue-firmly-in-cheek look at a promising new trend in parenting: being the boss!
In this day and age - when parenting books are a dime a dozen - it's easy for a mom to get confused. Do you go democratic or hover like a helicopter? Do you take a tiger-ish approach, or something more "hands off," like those French women who supposedly raise perfect children? Parenting author and humourist Kathy Buckworth has a completely different idea: Why not let the boardroom be your guide? In I Am So the Boss of You, Buckworth imagines a world where corporate policies and practices rule on the home front, and Mom is most definitely in charge!
