Synopsis

Kid Confidential An Insider's Guide to Grown-Ups by Monte Montgomery

Let's face it: being a kid isn't easy. Compared to adults, kids are inexperienced, immobile, powerless, and short. And just as it would be irresponsible to send travelers to a strange city without a map, it would be wrong to let defenseless children loose in suburban jungles prowled by parents, teachers, and other mysterious adults, without a guide as to how the other older, but not necessarily wiser, half lives. The Young Person's Guide to Grownups explores such shocking facets of adult life as money, toys, love, appearances, and why they don't want kids to have fun. And it does it all with an accessible, tongue-in-cheek attitude that kids will love.
