Ten simple rules to dating my daughter
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.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.And then he tells you what to do on the date and how to escalate a woman.Lots of greatbody language advice as well as how to look good even if you are just an average Joe.
In fact, his career could be described as another blogger made good.The reason is simple: he expresses something very true in a very funny way, examining just what happens when Daddy's little girl becomes a teenager.Beginning with the warning signs (#5: Your car insurance suddenly costs more than the car), the book covers dating (Rule #2: Keep your hands and eyes off my daughter's body or I will remove them), the telephone (seemingly wired to her nervous system), braces (the costliest metal on earth), the first job, and more.That is, a tongue in cheek "How can this be happening to me?" attitude, applied to the daily chore of raising teenage girls. Bruce Cameron's columns have always been a cross between Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck.
