I never violated curfew or had raucous parties when they were out of town for the weekend mostly because they never were out of town for the weekend. My parents never had to lecture me about getting my homework done nor did I ever ask them for their assistance.
I actually wanted to DO WELL in my classes. I've seen their HS report cards. I certainly never dated any of the unwashed miscreants that went to my school, which alleviated most of the issues from this book.
Maybe I need to invent a time machine and go back a decade or so and give it another go and really give my parents a headache or two. But that would mean I'd have to go back to being a TEENAGER again. I think I'll pass. flag 3 likes · Like · see review. Apr 24, Deidre rated it really liked it Shelves: forever-favorite-authors.
Many people say that you need to purchase the audio book version. Jim and I read this as a travel book on car rides. I was reading out loud so I guess that was just like having the audio book??? My parents were even in the car for some of it, and it had them chuckling in the back seat from all the memories of my teenage years no doubt.
It might be sexist, but as a former teenage girl, I can certainly still laugh at it, as can Jim. We just bought the sequel for our next road trip. Feb 02, Laura rated it did not like it · review of another edition Shelves: too-awful-to-finish. My husband and I checked the audiobook out from the library when we went on a road trip. We lasted about halfway through the first cassette yes, I said cassette , and I just had to turn it off because it was such a load of sexist crap!!!

Well, Bruce is actually my friend. I absolutely adored these stories.

I don't understand. I really don't. What are the techniques of humor that this man uses in his book? Made me burst into laughter. Hum hum hum. I have to work it out. Oct 29, Samantha rated it liked it. May 21, James rated it liked it. Bruce Cameron's columns have always been a cross between Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck. That is, a tongue in cheek "How can this be happening to me? 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.
I've been reading this guy's net column for years. Since when his kids were kids, and W. 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. And like many bloggers, his best stuff is compacted into articles that you can easily read in about 2 minutes.
So I was absolutely delighted to find out that he was coming out with a full length book. 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.
The story covers details down to bathroom and sleep habits. Hs observations are always amusing if not always fall down funny. From the kid's perspective, his behavior might actually justify their behavior. A big part of parenting is learning how to let go. 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. It is clear that he loves his daughters, even to the point of lampooning their relationship. My biggest complaint is that this book contains nothing new. These are all the same themes covered by the articles over the last five or so years. The book is almost like a compilation of his old columns. Like those Dilbert compilations they put out two or three times a year that collects old strips.
Cameron also includes filler, like he tries to meet his editor's word requirement by adding "cute phrases" like "You are the father" at the end of every chapter. It doesn't really work every chapter. But if you are looking for some light reading, or have teenage girls, this book will provide welcome relief. Whatever you do, don't judge this book by its TV spin off. It is way way better. But if you really want the best of Cameron, sign up for the weekly columns.
Jan 03, Keith Feisel rated it really liked it · review of another edition. I bought copies for friends of mine who were in the same boat as I: having daughters who were starting to have guys interested in them My original idea was to not allow my daughter to date until she was 30 years old, but that didn't work when it got right down to it I know have one daughter married and another engaged.

Cate : [reading Paul's last article] Okay readers, today we're having a little pop quiz, it's multiple choice, so sharpen your number 2 pencils and put your thinking caps on.
Here's a quote: "Dad, you're an idiot. A: Coming to the breakfast table wearing pajamas and black socks? B: Asking my oldest daughter if that guy I saw her talking to yesterday at school was her boyfriend? C: Referring to rapper Fiddy Cent as "Fifty Cents"? or D: Entering the room? Okay, pencils down. Actually it was a trick question. The answer is all of the above. Now do you know how many times I called my father an idiot?
Because I feared him. Back then we didn't share our deep personal feelings, our deepest conversations usually revolved around the tigers bull pen.
But my kids, I can't get them to shut up! There's not a feeling that my kids are afraid to express over and over and over. And my wife reassures me this is a good thing over and over and over, and she's always right. So do I wish that my kids feared me? Well my house would be quieter, and I'd spend a lot less time in the bathroom, but no. Because I know that whenever they insult me whether it's a "You're an idiot," "You're a geek," or an "I hate you," an "I love you" isn't far behind.
And it's the knowledge that my wife and kids love me that makes it safe for me to wear pajamas and black socks to the breakfast table.

Crazy credits The opening sequence of the first season featured Kerry, Kate, Bridget and Paul each looking at Bridget's or Kerry's new date one at a time the scene is viewed from the latter's perspective , the camera panning down to the doormat with the show's title, and finally Rory taunting the date.
Rory's taunt changed in every opening sequence although they were often repeated between non-consecutive episodes. User reviews Review. Featured review. They should be applauded for the way they handled his death. The writers of "8 Simple Rules" should be commended for the manner in which they handled John Ritter's death.
There was a lot of speculation about merely replacing the star with another actor. The people at the show chose instead to go out on a limb and let the show mirror reality. They showed the pain of a family goes through when losing a loved one. They are showing the truth. And showing that there still is humor in life.
Most sit-coms now-a-days shy too much away from reality and give us a syrupy-sweet, trite twenty minutes of simulated laugh tracks and simulated humor. The writers go for the easy sells and go cash their sponsor checks. Thank you, ABC. hartshad0w Jul 22, Details Edit. Release date September 17, United States. United States. Official site.
