A Christian publisher said on Wednesday it has called off a parenting book written by Lynne Spears — the mother of troubled pop star Britney Spears and her pregnant 16-year-old sister, Jamie Lynn. […]
The working title for the book was “Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.” Described by the publisher as “a parenting book that’s going to have faith elements to it,” it had been set for publication on Mother’s Day in May 2008.
Wow. What a shame that this book will never see the light of day. As a new parent I’m always looking for good tips on how to raise a happy, well-adjusted, responsible kid. And who could argue with the results that Lynne Spears got? She clearly knows what she’s doing.
Now I don’t want to get into the whole parental blame game here, because heaven knows all parents make their share of mistakes. And if my kid ever knocks up a girl or shaves his head or builds a top secret sex room, I wouldn’t want strangers writing crap about what a lousy dad I was.
Then again, I’m not planning on writing a parenting book for a Christian publisher.
