In her fascinating new book, QUEEN BEE MOMS & KINGPIN DADS, Rosalind Wiseman, author of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling QUEEN BEES & WANNABES, addresses, whether in the raising of their children or in their complex interactions with other parents and educators, the many difficult issues facing parents today.

Parenting styles have always been subject to critiques. What Wiseman offers here are engaging case studies that help parents and educators understand the realities of different parenting techniques and styles. In her analysis of these case studies she reveals: how to recognize when to step in and step out of a child's conflicts with other children, parents, teachers, and coaches; how to interpret the code phrases other parents use to provoke confrontation, and also provides useful scripts to help parents and educators navigate difficult but necessary conversations.

Rather than emphasize a specific type of parenting method, QUEEN BEE MOMS & KINGPIN DADS ultimately offers valuable insight into the behaviors and patterns of parents, both on the individual level and in a broader socio-cultural context.
