Kids, a Primer is a collection of a grandfather's musings on the way his (now grown) children are raising their children and being glad about being a grandparent rather than a new parent with young children (again). While Ungar is convinced that grandparents could do a better job raising children if they had the energy, he is grateful that he, in fact, no longer has the energy. Readers will enjoy Ungar's signature sarcastic and witty tone but will be left with a warm sense of gratitude for parents and children alike by the end.
It is short and in several places very funny. It is observations by an old crank who lives/lived in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, Dc regarding his upbringing, his kids and grandkids. But despite the subject matter this is not something you would want to listen to with your minor children. This was well worth the $2 I spent for this 44 minute bit of entertainment.
