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!

“A practical advice guide for parents who feel like they’re not in charge at home anymore.” 
Vancouver Sun
“Move over, Tiger Mother. Au revoir, superior French parents. Stop hovering, helicopter moms and dads. If you want to rear responsible, well-adjusted children who will be able to make their way out in the real world, let the boardroom be your guide.” 
—Winnipeg Free Press
