Publisher's Summary

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 they're back in seventh grade. In Queen Bee Moms and 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:

  • Why PTA meetings and Back-to-School nights tap into parents' deepest insecurities
  • How to recognize the archetypal moms and dads, from Caveman Dad to Hovercraft Mom
  • How and when to step in and step out of your child's conflicts with other children, parents, teachers, or coaches
  • How to interpret the code phrases other parents use to avoid (or provoke) confrontation
  • Why too many well-meaning dads sit on the sidelines, and how vital it is that they step up to the plate
  • What to do and say when the playing field becomes an arena for people to bully and dominate other kids and adults
  • How to have respectful yet honest conversations with other parents about sex and drugs when your values are in conflict
  • How the way you handle parties, risky behavior, and academic performance affects your child
  • How unspoken assumptions about race, religion, and other hot-button subjects sabotage parents' ability to work together

Wiseman offers practical advice on avoiding the most common parenting "land mines" and useful scripts to help you navigate difficult but necessary conversations.

Queen Bee Moms and Kingpin Dads is essential reading for parents today. It offers us the tools to become wiser, more relaxed parents, 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 children's lives.

What the Critics Say

"If Wiseman was bold in her best-selling Queen Bees and Wannabes by telling the truth about entitled girls and their excesses, she's even more daring here." (Publishers Weekly)
