It is clear that he loves his daughters, even to the point of lampooning their relationship.
His humor or guffaw level is also somewhere in between, that is, his observations are funnier than Erma, but I've never gotten the fall down on the floor belly laughs that Dave can sometimes produce. Since when his kids were kids, and he didn't have a syndicated column yet.
In fact, his career could be described as another blogger made good.
From the kid's perspective, his behavior might actually justify their behavior. And while my daughter is only one, I can believe having these same conversations and encountering these same situations with her.
If Cameron is right, then there is nothing I can do about it, but at least I will be ready for it.
The book is kind of a funny how to manual and running commentary on the care and feeding of two teenage daughters and a pre-teen boy.
