“Call Me Dad, Not Dude. The Sequel” by Matthew Keenan, is a follow-up to his 2007 best seller, "Call Me Dad, Not Dude." Keenan’s latest book includes 71 columns published in the Kansas City Star, with another 12 of his best stories published in 435 South Magazine – 264 pages in all.
In Keenan's columns, he finds humor in all things teens — the adolescent sports scene, Prom, texting, reclaiming rights to the car radio, and making sense of the lease agreement for college boy’s party house. Additional columns include the misadventures involved in having three sons in Boy Scouts and leading the troop on campouts during tornado season.
Keenan's voice also speaks to growing up in the 60's and 70's in small town America, and he deftly draws contrasts from the parenting styles of old school parents to the helicopter moms of the modern age. Keenan's commentaries are a fun and refreshing viewpoint on raising kids today.
Old school, new school, ‘hello – what school?’ If it’s happened to your kids, or it’s about to, Keenan’s already been there, done that!
Get this book and laugh until you cry! And that’s just the first chapter – “Raising Teens.” Additional chapters represent Keenan's commentaries on growing old, coaching the "rec teams" and having a high school senior decide he's interested in picking a college based on the weather map. Sound familiar? Then you need to get this book and read Keenan's commentaries.
