A review

A short review of Parentonomics appeared in The Age today. It summarises pretty much what the book is all about.

Also today is a feature in the Sydney Morning Herald. In it I was paraphrased:
Professor Gans, who says his book should be taken as seriously as any other parenting manual, is already considering a Parentonomics II, tackling dilemmas for parents of primary school-age children, but is too terrified to contemplate the teen years yet.
In case anyone is wondering, by "seriously" I mean that most parenting manuals are just as useless on advice as my writing here and in the book. Not all, but most.
