Publisher's Summary

Modern parenting is in a complicated place. By some estimates, fathers today spend seven times more time parenting than their dads did. And while there are a ton of parenting books, writer Stephen Marche says that most are aimed at women and are designed to make them feel like they are doing something wrong. 

Enter How Not to F*ck Up Your Kids Too Bad, an Audible Original. Across 10 chapters, Marche talks to real fathers and experts about thorny contemporary questions. He tackles everything from why yelling may be as bad as spanking to how to share your favorite childhood books (especially when they are a little racist) and how to talk to your kids about marijuana and porn in a way that won’t mess them up as adults…at least not too much.

So good

Finally, something besides the preachy prescriptions of pediatrician authors. I love the voices of real moms and dads in this. It's a very fun listen, and something I took a lot away from!

disappointing

did not deliver what it claimed. nothing in book is more squarely aimed at parenting from fathers' perspective vs mothers'. deals with some headline issues but fails to capture day to day concerns of fathers. also does not distinguish concerns by age nor gender which can be relevant.
