Circumcision is not a lunch topic.

Check under your nails for doo-doo.

When you go away on business and you're really sorry your wife is stuck at home with all the midnight feedings, try not to smile or get caught high-fiving the dog.

Author of the syndicated humor column Family Man, Ken Swarner lets readers into the world of parents and kids, explains the enormous differences between sons and daughters, and provides assorted tips on operating a homework jail, understanding the rules of T-ball, and coping with uncooperative breast pumps (Ken's wife helped with that one).

Just in time for Father's Day, it's a lighthearted look at the funny side of fatherhood that will have parents nodding in agreement-and laughing out loud.

From the Author:

Q& A with the author

Q1: Why do you call this book a confession?

Answer: Because I thought having kids was all about having fun, snuggling, playing games, and sharing my wisdom. That’s grand parenting. Parenting is responsibility - trying to raise children who flush toilets and don’t chew with their mouths open. It's about teaching courtesy and why you shouldn1t hit your friend on the head with a lunchbox. It's A LOT harder than I expected.

Q2: So why write the book?

Answer: For a long time, my wife and I thought we were the only ones struggling with the job of raising children.

Q3: Why?

Answer: Because parents lie. Very few people, for whatever reason, will be honest with you that they have goofy kids too. They don't tell you that their kids are flunking math, or sleeping in their parent's bed, or still not potty trained even though they're four. So, I thought that by being honest about my life, others could feel better about their own.

Q4: Are your children happy about this book?

Answer: No. I expect to be sued for mentioning their Barney underwear.

Q5: What advice do you have for parents?

Answer: There is no advice so stop listening to those who try to dish it out. Just hang on and pray your kid gets a college scholarship - at a school where he can't live at home!

Q6: But if you were to give advice?

Answer: Nap more.

Q7: You built a homework jail?

Answer: Yes. But my son escaped!

From the Inside Flap:

In the tradition of Erma Bombeck and Dave Barry, Ken Swarner lets readers into the world of parents and kids, the enormous differences between sons and daughters, and provides assorted tips on coping with bosses, angry spouses and uncooperative breast pumps (long story).

Whose Kids Are These Anyway! is a hirlarious look at parenting that will have moms and dads nodding in agreement and laughing out loud.
