Shakespeare’s Guide to Parenting, a new book by James Andrews

Shakespeare's Guide to ParentingParenting Tips from William Shakespeare? Why not! In this witty new book from James Andrews, you’ll find all the advice you need for any parenting dilemma.

“Good wombs have borne bad sons.” –The Tempest

Organized by periods from newborn nightmares to teenage trials, Shakespeare’s Guide to Parenting is a must for every literary parent or parent-to-be. If you want the last word with your kids, nothing beats a quote from Shakespeare.
