When Parents Text: So Much Said…So Little Understood

When Parents Text: So Much Said…So Little Understood

Official Description: A collection of insanely funny texts between parents and kids, When Parents Text is a surprisingly affecting window into the complicated time when parents aren’t ready to let go, and kids aren’t ready to be let go. The parents are well-meaning but hopeless, silly and a little corny, and befuddled by the technology. The kids are bewildered yet patient: the perfect straight man. And the authors, two recent college graduates, Lauren Kaelin and Sophia Fraioli, have an unerring editorial instinct to select the funniest, sweetest, quirkiest, most-telling exchanges.

My Take: I happened to pick this gem up on an Amazon Daily Deal after reading the description I thought, WTH, and grabbed it. I laughed so much reading this, my husband thought it was funny, even though he didn’t want to admit it he couldn’t hide the smile, and it was a fast read. Everything wasn’t hysterical of course, and the first few sections were my favorite. I had not ever heard of the website prior to this, but I’m not surprised that there is one. Anyway this was a very entertaining read and you’ll fly right through it, then you’ll probably feel like sharing some of your favorites.
