54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew by Swati and Swaran Lodha

414EAG9XBeL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_I received 54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew by Swati and Swaran Lodha as a review copy from the publisher Rupa Publications. Thank you for the book.

The Blurb:

The book is a tongue in cheek take on things parents should and should not do. It talks about various beliefs, behaviour, and biases held by most parents that make them annoying and difficult. So, all you parents out there—be a good sport, pick up this book, and see for yourself the heart of a teenager. 54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew! will leave you with one big reason to understand your child, all over again.

My take:

A beautifully written book. I can actually call it as a letter from an offspring to the parents.

It actually made me realise a lot of things that I hated when my parents did when we were kids and I do it myself.

The language is simple and the book has a way of making the parent in me feel guilty. But I loved it anyway and it took me around 35 days to finish the book as I was reading it in bits and pieces like short stories.

And now I plan to preach less to my kids, if that is possible……

And my daughter is reading it now and sharing her thoughts with her brother so…..
