How To Con You Kid
by David Borgenicht and James Grace
Reviewed by Louisa Nashir
As soon as I saw the title of this book I knew I wanted to review it as us parents could always use a little extra help when it comes to our kids and our day to day lives.
The bright blue cover and the yellow duck make this book eye-catching and it looked like an amusing read.
The book covers a wide variety of situations where parents may need to 'Con Their Kids'.
The book is divided up into different chapters:
Grooming Cons – This covers everything from hair and teeth brushing to taking medicines.
Getting Ready Cons – Loads of useful cons for dressing to going to school.
Behavioural Cons – This explains how to help your child when meeting new people, surviving a plane journey with a child, how to stop a child cry and plenty more.
Household Cons – From learning how to share to getting your kids to help tidy up. Lots of useful tips in this section.
Mealtime and Bedtime Cons – My favourite chapter as this is where we struggle most.
This parenting manual is a stroke of genius and is a real ally for us parents.
I will be keeping this book hidden from the kids though as the back cover says 'THE BOOK YOUR CHILDREN DON'T WANT YOU TO READ'.
