This humor book is a collection of hilarious essays on parenting in the era of Facebook and texting. If you’re a parent – or just thinking about making arguably the biggest mistake of your life by starting a family – then YOU’RE GROUNDED FOR LIFE may make you a better parent. Probably not. In fact, I’m laying 10-to-1 odds it won’t. But you never know. Whether you’re the parent of a toddler, a middle schooler or a college sophomore, you’ll find innovative parenting strategies the author has tried – all with hilariously disastrous results. If you’re looking for a humor book that looks at the funny side of trying to parent children intent on driving you insane, you’ve found it. As the father of high-spirited, rambunctious daughters, Tim Jones, author of the popular humor blog View From The Bleachers, playfully shares pearls of parenting wisdom honed from futilely trying to understand the mysterious minds of kids. If you... More > happen to have figured it out, could you give him a call? He’d really appreciate it.< Less

    Laugh out loud funny -- and many pearls of wisdom in there too!

    Tim has mastered a unique blend of wit and sarcasm with no shortage of humor. An excellent read. As a parent of two adult children myself, I could identify with foibles of parenting. Perhaps there will be a sequel entitled "Grand-kids, the Art of Reapplied Parenting Skills".

    I don't know if you have to be a parent do enjoy this book as much as I did, but I think it helps. There is a sort of sly experienced wisdom to the broad comedy Tim Jones deploys so deftly, and it helps strike the balance every parent recognizes between sheer absurdity of life with kids and the unexpectedly profound moments that seem to come wrapped in angst, tears, unidentifiable goo, and head-shaking. I recommend You’re Grounded for Life whether you’re early in the kid-raising going or an old hand whose offspring are safely parceled off someplace far from home, and especially encourage it as a baby-shower gift to first-timers-- you can’t be too prepared and this book could well be that long-sought-after text on what is really ahead.

    Great fun! I wish I had Tim's spot on advice when I was raising my kids. I can only hope I will be able to apply his wisdom to my grandkids. Must read for parents who've been there - and for those who have the road yet to travel.

    A witty, honest and fun read for parents, for people thinking about becoming parents, and for those looking for reasons to avoid becoming parents.
