9780061759574: Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation

Popular actress and stand-up comedienne Elizabeth Beckwith gives us the parenting guide to end all parenting guides: Raising the Perfect Child through Guilt and Manipulation. A frequent guest on The Late, Late Show and one of seven comics featured in the Time magazine article, “Funny: The Next Generation,” Beckwith now puts forth a hilarious new parenting philosophy that would shock Dr. Spock and traumatize T. Berry Brazelton. Raising the Perfect Child through Guilt and Manipulation is a riotously irreverent take on contemporary child rearing.

From the Back Cover:

Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation is not one of those traditional, all-too-earnest parenting guides that, for generations, have sucked all the fun out of child rearing. The foundation of Elizabeth Beckwith's Guilt and Manipulation family philosophy is simple: We do things a certain way, and everyone else is an a**hole.

Is that something you should put on a bumper sticker and slap on your minivan? Of course not—that would be trashy. But in the privacy of your own home, you can employ these essential components of Guilt and Manipulation to mold the little runts ruthlessly yet effectively into children you won't be embarrassed to admit are yours:

  • Creating a Team: "Us" vs. "Them"
  • How to Scare the Crap Out of Your Child (in a Positive Way)
  • Don't Be Afraid to Raise a Nerd
  • Mind Control: Why It's a Good Thing

About the Author:

Elizabeth Beckwith is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actress who lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Patrick, and her children, Michael and Frances.

BRAND NEW, Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation, Elizabeth Beckwith, "Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation" is a wickedly funny spoof on a parenting guide that bridges the gap between funny childhood essays and edgy self-help manual.
