Raising a Tween is serious business about the care of magical creatures and all things childhood magic related and you should not be reading just any old parenting how to manual.

The Green Family knew something was very wrong the first night they brought baby, Vivian home. “We read all the baby books and they all say that Fathers can’t hear their babies cry,” said his wife, 43 year old Drew, “It’s something to do with male organs being smaller or something.
