    DescriptionAn eye-opening and practical handbook on the social competition between parents. In her groundbreaking international bestseller, Queen Bees and Wannabes, Rosalind Wiseman revealed the social hierarchy and unspoken rules of Girl World and Boy World, and how parents could help their teenage daughters. Now in Queen Bee Mums and Kingpin Dads she reveals the unspoken rules of Perfect Parent World, a place in which a few parents set the rules for all parental involvement, the perceived standards are virtually impossible to achieve, and most parents feel frustrated or disempowered. Perfect Parent World leaves parents of teenage children struggling over involvement - what's appropriate and what's not in school and in their children's social lives. Often the problem is not the lack of parental involvement but, according to Wiseman, an excess of the wrong type of involvement - with parents acting out their own issues through their kids. It's a world that has parents reliving the traumas and dilemmas of their youth - and being surprised to learn that those decades-old obsessions are still alive.
