Texts and Tunes: How to Talk to Girls

If your lil guy has moved on from thinking girls are icky to being a bit more interested in them, then you both may want to check out the book, How to Talk to Girls. Written by an eight-year old boy who did his research at recess during school, this book is chock full of wholesome advice for a budding ladies' man. His simple tips for getting girls include: Combing your hair and not wearing sweats. Though my personal favorite is, "Control your hyperness (cut down on the sugar if you have to)."

Even if your child is not ready to accept that girls don't have cooties, you'll get a kick out of it — and you might want to slip it over to your husband for a refresher course. I'm left wondering where this book was when I was in college, let alone elementary school. The book has already become a such a sensation the fourth-grader, Alec Greven, has been on Ellen and Fox is making a movie based on the book.

I think it's funny but I'm rather appalled at stuff he says at such a young age. I thought the book said he was 9. However, we're getting it as a gag gift for a friend who just got a divorce.
