Order Brian's Book

Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl
(A Dad's Survival Guide to Raising Daughters)


"As the father of a daughter, I wish I'd read this very funny book sooner, if only to know that it's OK for a grown man to wear a tutu." Dave Barry

It's easy to imagine how you'd raise a boy—all the golf outings, lawnmower lessons, and Little League championships you'd attend—but playing dad to a little princess may take some education. In Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl, Brian, a father of three girls, shares his tactics for surviving this new and glittery world. From baby dolls and bedtime rituals to potty training and dance recitals, he leads you through all the trials and tribulations you'll face as you're raising your daughter. He'll also show you how to navigate your way through tough situations, like making sure that she doesn't start dating until she's 50. Complete with commandments for restroom trips and properly participating in a tea party, Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl will brace you for all those hours playing house--and psych you up for the awesomeness of raising a daughter who has you lovingly wrapped around her little finger.

Praise for the Book

"Somehow, Brian Klems has taken one of the most traumatic situations known to a father—having a daughter—and made it into something so completely hilarious you'll laugh until you've got oxygen deprivation!"

"Required reading for any parent who doesn't know pants from leggings."  
Dan Zevin, Dan Gets a Minivan

"This hilarious book is a must-read for for all dads who have a daughter—I should know, I'm one of them. It's smart, relatable and will keep you from panicking when everything around you turns pink."
—Chuck Sambuchino, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack

"I loved Oh Boy, You're Having a Girl.  As a proud father of three girls, I found myself smiling (and laughing) throughout. Klems delivers more often than a group of sister wives."
