Product Description: This book is the author's attempt to capture all the motherly advice from the previous generation of mothers, for the next generations of mother's. It is the author's intent is to share the unwritten rules from mother's everywhere with a dash of humor. Namely, if you really listen to ?what your mother always said? you will hear the unwritten rules of parenting. Over the past year, the author has been asking people from all over the country to share rules from their childhood. The result of that sampling and her own research is presented in the pages that follow. You will enjoy the familiar walk down memory lane and the new explorations of what mothers everywhere are saying that their children ?ought to do!? Reflecting on their child-rearing years, they have captured the quintessential elements of parenthood. Their words illustrate that there are no easy shortcuts to raising intelligent and loving children with strong moral character. Parenthood is a full-time job and should be performed with the same level of diagnosis, preparation, study and commitment as brain or open-heart surgery. The rules are presented in alphabetical order; they are not in order of priority. Each section contains the legal-ease of the rule, followed by the consequences for failing to comply with Official Parent's Handbook. The handbook suggests that parents who fail to instill these rules in their children are faced with a host of hardships. The ultimate hardship is always the loss of their membership in the esteemed Nation Parent Association. While, the book illustrates time-honored rules, the consequences are somewhat fictitious. However, if you examine the consequences carefully, you may find that they resemble natural consequences to issues in character development. Similar problems in your own parent-child relationship may possibly be traced back to the lack of enforcing rules under a particular Article of the Official Parent's Handbook. It is food for thought!
