"54 Reasons Why Parents Suck" by Dr. Swati Lodha and Swaraa Lodha was selected by Vishnu. But when I checked his book received the post on Instagram, I pinged him to give me chance to review the book. Though he wanted to read it himself, he gave it to me. Coming to my review part, I picked up this book because of its really interesting title "54 Reasons Why Parents Suck". I am a millennial, and my views about everything differ from my parent's view; which creates a hell lot of conflict between us. And I thought it's the story of every millennial so it was obvious for me to pick up this book. I found that the book can give good insights to both the party. The book is really well written with day to day examples. It covers topics like 1) What children try to say to parents 2) Things parents sometimes don't understand about a modern generation 3) How parents try to be cool but end up embarrassing the child What I really found interesting was that the book was written by a mother-daughter duo. So it is obvious that you will get inputs from both sides. You will get both of their views. It also narrates the dos and donts for parents as well as a child. I recommend this book to every teenager and every parent trying to figure out what goes wrong and why. Detailed Review Link - http://chevusread.blogspot.com/2018/0...

    I was skeptic when I chose this book as my next read, I really thought it would be a satire or maybe a book on how children should understand parents, basically anything but what the title says and I was proved wrong, this book is everything the title says and an honest one at that. This book is not bias as it is written by a mother-daughter duo, mostly by a mother who pens down her daughter’s thoughts towards parents and their parenting methods, they even did a survey before writing this book. Th I was skeptic when I chose this book as my next read, I really thought it would be a satire or maybe a book on how children should understand parents, basically anything but what the title says and I was proved wrong, this book is everything the title says and an honest one at that. This book is not bias as it is written by a mother-daughter duo, mostly by a mother who pens down her daughter’s thoughts towards parents and their parenting methods, they even did a survey before writing this book. There are 54 chapters and each chapter discusses a different problem children face. What I really liked about this book, is that at the end of every chapter there is a solution or an approach for parents on how to tackle the problem discussed. The writing is hilarious, and very easy to understand. I as a child of Indian parents, related a hundred percent with all the problems mentioned. This book could easily be a guide for future parents to be. I feel like all the opinions which a child cannot voice is in this book, and can easily use it to share their opinions with their parents. You might not relate to all the problems mentioned but I am sure there will be some of them to which you’ll relate. I definitely recommend this book, even though it’s a non-fiction book, I thoroughly enjoyed it and delved into it like it was a fiction book. My Verdict : 5/5

    There are very less non-fiction books which are gutsy and picks up such topics that makes you uncomfortable in discussing it with people. I landed up picking up a book which had such a title that it made reading it in Mumbai Local Trains a moment of getting weird looks in return whosoever got a glance of its cover page: “54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew!”.

I landed up picking up a book which had such a title that it made reading it in Mumbai Local Trains a moment of getting weird looks in return whosoever got a glance of its cover page: “54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew!”. The people above the age of 40 years looked at me as if I am a criminal and I am the reason why our generation is not improving and doing everything against parent’s will. And the irony is that this book is written majorly by a mother- Dr. Swati Lodha about the emotions her 17-year-old daughter has about her parents named Swaraa Lodha. This book also shows that there are few parents who are willing to investigate the mindset of children and understand them and their expectations with parents. Indian parents, in general, always have expectations from their children but they never think about certain expectations that even their children have from them. They believe themselves as demigod and thus believe that they never do any mistake in parenting. This book is for such parents who do not understand the perspective of their child and keep on continuing with their way of parenting irrespective of noticing that their child is gradually getting far away from them and in few cases, even started hating them. The authoress has written 54 chapters each detailing a reason why children are fed up of their parents. Each reason is justified so well that you will enjoy reading them as they are built up with all- seriousness, humour, fun, weirdness, discomfort, issues, sadness, maturity, immaturity and everything you know. The book is written in a very interesting language which keeps the readers hooked up. Talking about the drawbacks of the book, I felt that in most of the chapters, author has spoken in the same tone itself which makes the reading very monotonous which might bore you after some time if you are completing the book in a one single-sitting itself. Secondly, in many of the chapters, author talks about similar point itself just giving it a different packaging, so it starts sounding repetitive. Thirdly, the book is too stretched. It could have easily been completed in 200 pages with everything which is already spoken in more than 250 pages. I rate this book 3.75* out of 5. Kudos to authors for such a unique and most-wanted topic. Thanks. ABHILASH RUHELA!!!

    54 reasons why parents suck and phew is a very interesting novel which kept me hooked till the very end even when I completed the book in almost two months. This is not the type of book which you can read in a few hours because if you want to understand this book you must give time to it's each chapter. I could relate to most of the reasons mentioned in the book.

I could relate to most of the reasons mentioned in the book. There are 54 reasons mentioned in the book where our parents do not act as they are supposed to and fail as being the parents which they want them to be. They try to do everything well for us but eventually forget what we want and this becomes the reason for friction between the relations. Author has not only mentioned the problems in the book but also provided the solutions for so-called problems between children and their parents. She has mentioned how parents can act differently in those situations to make them easy for both. I really liked the way the book is written. It has humor, fun, wittiness, and obviously the solution to our day to day conflicts with our parents. The narration of the book is amazing which can keep you glued to the book. The plot of the book is something new which is enough for you to try this book. And at last but not the least its gorgeous cover. I really liked the cover of the book. If you are planning to read a good non - fiction book this will be a great choice for you. This book is nothing like other boring non - fiction books.

    "54 Reasons Why Parents Suck and Phew..." The book gets you all excited merely by its title.  Although I had all my reasons listed in my mind about why parents suck, I wanted to know what this mother - daughter duo has to say about parents.  I never knew that the problems I face with my parents are so universal. It was so realistic that at no point I could say that it never happened to me or this is so unrealistic. NEVER.

It was so realistic that at no point I could say that it never happened to me or this is so unrealistic. NEVER. Initially I found the thoughts haphazardly written but I grew used to the style which was actually very interesting to read. The analogies were apt and again, relatable.  I have always felt closest to my sister in my entire social circle. We argue and we fight but we share our deepest concerns, our worries, thoughts and ideas with each other. And reading this book was like just another of our discussions where we speak, we listen, we understand and never judge. This book made me cry and it made me laugh. It made me hate my parents and it made me love them more. It was a rollercoaster ride in true terms tantalized by the idea of perfect parents. Well! Nobody is perfect. Neither are we nor are our parents. Only if we both realise our weaknesses, we have a scope for improvement. After reading the book you just have two options in front of you Confront your parents and improve your relations Pick the smallest of their issues, argue and worsen your relationship. 1st option is not an easy one. It will take time. But will definitely keep your family happier. Happy Reading!!

    The book is penned down by a mother-daughter duo and the way Swaraa has pointed out things that children find irritating or not comfortable that is being imposed upon them by their parents is a completely spot on. Being a youngster myself I can completely relate to each and every word of the book. There comes a time when we feel that something is right for us and our parents think that since they have seen the world, they have more experience then we should just obey them.

Being a youngster myself I can completely relate to each and every word of the book. There comes a time when we feel that something is right for us and our parents think that since they have seen the world, they have more experience then we should just obey them. Things don’t go this way. and we as an individual need not to just follow the rules or path which our parents took. Its our choice to choose our path. With original and terse writing style the, author never misses a single point in hooking up the reader. The audacious and euphoric tone of the book is just like a good masala chai which no matter how much you drink, still you crave for more. The insightful theme and points mentioned in the book will make you stop and think. Why do we always need to look at everything from our parents perspective? Dear Parents, Life is a maths equation and it has several ways to solve. Let us find our own interesting way and just rock on. Overall, a must read book for everyone. And the little girl nailed it.

The book is a tongue in cheek take on things parents should and should not do. It talks about various beliefs, behaviour and biases held by most parents that make them annoying and difficult. This one here is a fair attempt to understand the other side, the receiving end of parenting tactics. Being a young adult myself, there were so many things I could relate to and appreciated in the book. The title itself is catchy and the content does complete justice to it. It was an absolute delight to read this one. Must, must read.

    Written from the child’s perspective, each chapter comes with a pragmatic suggestion that is not too obvious yet subtle. Topics like Influence of Social Media, Reputation of parents at stake before others, need of the children to break free from the mundane chores, a mother’s struggle to explain the importance of being safe- are all covered. It is fun to read Swaraa’s experiences and her verdicts. Overall, this is one of the best books on parenting owing to the different perspective used.

    let the children express what they think of their parents. This is the book. But parents need this book more than children: let them understand for once how the minds of their children function.

We usually come across a lot of parenting books but this one is unconventional in a lot of ways. This book is written by a mother and teenage daughter duo. The book is from the perspective of the daughter and thus we can understand how children view their parent’s behaviour. It is divided into 54 chapters, each of which is an observation about Indian parents. The name of this book is intriguing and made me want to read this book and I was not at all disappointed. I enjoyed this book thoroughly. The book gives voice to most children’s thoughts about their parents. There is no exaggeration and I could relate to each and every chapter. The only problem I felt was that towards the end it became slightly repetitive and points became redundant. Otherwise, this book will keep you hooked till the end. Swaraa has done a commendable job in compiling all the reasons why parents suck. After reading each chapter, I would feel like it had been written by me with my parents in mind. Swaraa is honest and open and does not shy away from stating the inconvenient truth. This book is suitable for readers of various ages. Children will be able to relate to this book, while parents (of teenagers preferably) and parents-to-be can gain an insight into parenting and what is a suitable way to deal with children of the present generation. This is a much-needed introspection into the behaviour of Indian parents and can serve as a guide for better parent-children relationships.
