The Prince, and wonders: Can Machiavelli’s rules on warfare and statecraft be successfully applied to parenting?
Using The Prince as a guide, Evans embarks on an unlikely experiment in “power parenting” and quickly learns that Machiavellian maxims can go a long way when running a kingdom...and a household.
• Study the actions of illustrious men: How to lead by example.
• It is dangerous to be overly generous: A good ruler sets limits.
• It is better to be feared than loved: Sometimes a prince (and a parent) has to be a meanie to ensure the obedience and security of the people.
Praised as "a funny, creative, new parenting guide” (Parade.com), Machiavelli for Moms offers one mother’s unlikely approach to modern parenting -- and stands as a manifesto for other frazzled moms (and dads) willing to act on Machiavelli’s sometimes shocking but ever-practical advice!!
