Review: Were You Raised By Wolves?

From the site: "Perhaps, in your parents' eagerness to smooth life's bumpy road, they took such good care of you that you never learned how to be a self-sufficient human being. And now here you are, all grown up. What next?

You may think you don't really need to know how to make a proper cup of coffee. You've never given much thought to your listening skills, or how one goes about saving money, or stocking a bar. But knowing these things will really make you a much more well-rounded and all-around more charming and useful person, one who is more apt to be invited over for dinner. In fact, a lot of us might benefit from having a few gentle hints about housekeeping, habits, and behavior lobbed in our general direction. With advice and information ranging from How to Boil an Egg to How to Go a Whole Day Without Spending Money—in chapters as diverse as the Upside of Being Single and Lonely and the Hangover: Badge of Courage or Waste of a Day?—Were You Raised by Wolves? will help you come away more confident about important issues such as where the hell to put those flowers somebody brought over last night."

Were You Raised by Wolves by Christie Mellor turned out to be a very fun and entertaining read. It's aimed at young adults who are newly on their own in the world and may need some help adjusting with doing things for themselves. The books covers areas such as keeping your place clean, getting acquainted with your kitchen, dress ettiquite, hosting dinner/cocktail parties, dealing with holidays, personal relationships, handling your finances, and how to stop relying on your parents. It even gives you step-by-step instructions on how to sew on a button!

I would have definitely appreciated this book as a graduation gift. It would have given me a heads up on things to come and would have saved me a lot of headaches!

The book may be purchased through for $13.57. Thank you to the Parent Bloggers Network for this great review opportunity!
