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!

The concept of running your family as a business is an interesting proposition, but it could've been explained more succinctly than this. And it certainly didn't need all the author's attempts at being funny (mostly in vain). I can't get past the halfway mark of the book... it's just too annoying and condescending (towards kids and husbands). I actually agree with / am intrigued by some of the ideas in the book but there's just too much irritating, superfluous, self-important filler to make it worthwhile.
