Rules for Raising Little Girls

"As the father of a daughter, I wish I'd read this very funny book sooner, if only to know that it's OK for a grown man to wear a tutu." --Dave Barry

"Required reading for any parent who doesn't know pants from leggings." --Dan Zevin, author of Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad

It's easy to imagine how you'd raise a boy--all the golf outings, lawnmower lessons, and Little League championships you'd attend--but playing dad to a little princess may take some education. In Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl, Brian, a father of three girls, shares his tactics for surviving this new and glittery world. From baby dolls and bedtime rituals to potty training and dance recitals, he leads you through all the trials and tribulations you'll face as you're raising your daughter. He'll also show you how to navigate your way through tough situations, like making sure that she doesn't start dating until she's fifty.

Complete with commandments for restroom trips and properly participating in a tea party, Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl will brace you for all those hours playing house--and psych you up for the awesomeness of raising a daughter who has you lovingly wrapped around her little finger.

"Somehow, Brian Klems has taken one of the most traumatic situations known to a father--having a daughter--and made it into something so completely hilarious you'll laugh until you've got oxygen deprivation!" --W. Bruce Cameron, author of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter

About the Author

Brian A. Klems is a writer, husband, softball player, perennial fantasy sports underachiever, and father of three lovely little girls. He's a proud graduate of the journalism school at Ohio University. He's also the online editor of Writer's Digest magazine. When he isn't explaining the differences between "who" and "whom" on his "The Writer's Dig" blog or mowing his lawn (two weeks later than he should have), he's likely playing "Ring Around the Rosy" with his daughters. You can visit his website at www.TheLifeofDad.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny stuff for new dads! March 14 2013
By Phillip Sexton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The timing of this book was perfect. I'm going to be the father of a new baby girl in approximately six weeks and am as excited as can be. I read Klem's book from cover to cover. It's not so much a serious guide on "how to raise girls" as it is a humor book by a very funny writer describing what it's like to raise girls. I laughed a lot. If you're wondering how you're going to do it, how you're going to deal with all the pink, and tea parties, and dolls, etc, this is a book that somehow empathizes with you and reassures you that it's all going to turn out great, even if you don't know what you're doing. And the author is a fan of the Cincinnati Reds as well, so you know he's smart (or at the very least, devoted).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Oct. 9 2013
By Carl W - Published on Amazon.com
I've long been a fan of Brian Klems's Life of Dad blog, and this book is a great big dose of the humor that I enjoy there every week. Klems is clever and funny and wonderful at just lightly nudging that sentimental side of you to remind you what it was like to be a kid yourself and why your own family always felt so special. He'd never admit it with a straight face, but there's a good deal of wisdom standing behind all the laughs in this book.
