Publishers Description

Fox News host and busy mother of eight E. D. Hill offers the antidote to permissive parenting by giving parents permission to be in charge.

D. tackles parental challenges: Manners: thank you and other common courtesies Discipline: tantrums and time-outs Money: chores and allowances Sportsmanship: fair vs. foul Clothing: fashion and dress codes Teenagers: structure and consequences Includes a special chapter on Driving, Dating, and other Death-Defying Feats along with contracts for use with teens

Reviews - What do customers think about I'm Not Your Friend I'm Your Parent?

E. D.  May 23, 2010
E. D. gives good advice to young parents. It may sound "cool" to say "I'm my daughter's best friend" but it robs the child of a much more needed parent.

Read it, especially if you are a young parent.
I'm Not Your Friend, I' m Your Parent  Mar 3, 2010
Wonderful, fresh and liberating for those parents who are trying to be a friend and losing their children to an unfriendly world. Character, honor, and doing right because it is right will always bring success. Really easy to read and if you are familiar with the author the pace is true to her personality on TV.
I'm Not Your Friend.....  Apr 29, 2009
I can't say how this book is because I gave it to my dil as a gift and she has not read it yet.

I like E.D. Hill, enjoyed her when she was on TV, and as a new grandma, I thought I would pass this on to my son and dil.
Informative and Practical  Feb 3, 2009
The author uses a no-nonsense approach to parenting that is refreshing in today's society. I appreciate her willingess to say that no parent is perfect, but still give the tools to do the best job possible. Don't miss the driving contract in the back. It's priceless.
Skip this book  Jan 4, 2009
This book has some good advice for parents on how to stand our ground and set clear and definite expectations for behavior. That said, the book is not well written and is rife with Reader's Digest-esque quotes, many of which aren't particularly relevant to the point Ms. Hill is trying to make. In addition, some of her approaches to what makes a decent human being reinforce stereotypical gender roles and a military state mentality. I would not want our children to grow up to be like her and I don't approve of her elitist and bigoted attitudes.
