9780738208510: My Kid's an Honor Student, Your Kid's a Loser: The Pushy Parent's Guide to Raising a Perfect Child

From Mozart played to the womb to post-toddler tutoring for SATs, today's parents are obsessed with creating super kids. In My Kid's an Honor Student, Your Kid's a Loser, best-selling author Ralph Schoenstein blends sharp observation, memories of his own offbeat parenting experience, incredulous reporting, and uproarious flights of fancy to explore this absurd trend. He stumbles upon earnest mothers attempting to elevate fetus IQ and cringes at an exclusive institution teaching reading to children too small to hold a book. With wondrous wit, deep perception, and sweet appreciation for his own unstructured childhood, Schoenstein turns these and other new parenting perversions into comic gems, continuing his reign as the man Kirkus called "the undisputed king of writing on parenthood."
