How do hootch, shanks, and prison riots relate to parenting? In this mostly serious book, parenting is explored through the lens of lessons learned while working as a correctional officer. Written as a series of short reflections, each reflection begins with a story from prison life and then relates that to parenting.

Everything I Needed to Know About Parenting, I Learned in Prison is a short work of approx 12,000 words. Think novella, but non-fiction.

What I am looking for is mostly a content edit. Is it boring or pedantic? (geez I hope not but my inner critic insists that I ask). Interesting? And any other suggestions, or comments are welcome. I'm not particularly sensitive, but I would appreciate hearing what you liked along with what didn't work.

I am willing to swap, and I will read just about anything but erotica.
