8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter
8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter Author:W. Bruce Cameron Bruce Cameron is "the talk of parents nationwide" (People). He is "a brilliantly funny writer . . . in the tradition of James Thurber.

A nationally syndicated columnist with the Rocky Mountain News, Cameron gained national attention with the publication of 8 SIMPLE RULES in hardcover, becoming a regular contributor to Time's "Your Family" column and a featured story on CNN, CBS's The Early Show, and in People magazine. 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. "Cameron's take on the angst felt by every father of a teenage daughter is witty, wise, and excruciatingly on the money" (Charles Shyer, writer and director, Father of the Bride I and II).« less
Where was this book when I was raising 4 teenage girls? This book is right on in regards to teenage girls and their reasoning/non-reasoning. Having survived raising girls and offering assistance and advice as teenage granddaughter were raised, I really enjoyed this book.
