    Not for Super Moms

    Vickie Iovine's advice is so heartfelt, honest, and funny that I can't think of a single real-world person who wouldn't benefit from reading this book. She openly says that her advice is not medical, but is just what she experienced and how she coped. People looking for a more 'traditional' book probably won't be pleased, but for the rest of us irreverent types, it is a breath of fresh air.

    A funny book!

    I am a huge fan of all of Vicki's books but this one is the most funny and you really need that sometimes. I literally laugh out loud while I am reading it and it's so funny I am in tears! People that want something serious can go and buy other parenting books or read Parent magazines. Vicki does not claim to be an expert. She's just a mother who has been through it all and I enjoy her books and would recommend them to all mothers of those very active toddlers. I look forward to more of Vicki's books.

    Best book I've read on the toddler years!

    This was the only book I read that seemed like the author actually lived a real life with a toddler. I could relate to just about every scenario shared. Reading the book is like having a conversation with an old friend...very comfortable and familiar. This is a must have for any mother of a toddler. It contained plenty of sound advice, tips and tricks, and reassurance that your child will survive your parenting (I needed that)! I think it's best to give it to a mom before the toddler phase kicks in and they can steal a few minutes to read here and there before having to put on the running shoes to keep up with their little one.

    Takes the stress out of the terrible twos and threes

    I love Vicki Iovine books. This book discusses important topics in a way that makes me less stressed. Is my kid the only one who bites? When should I potty train? What are night terrors? I find her books great fun to read. Most other advice books about children usually end up making me feel worse. In addition, this book gives practical advice about how to address the issue. I've given this book as a gift to many friends and find myself re-reading sections once in awhile. I definitely recommend this book to anyone with kids age 1 to 3.

    For the rest of us!

    Let's face it, while most of us enjoy being mothers, there are those days when our entire household becomes "terrible". Just because we find humor and sometimes need perspective in dealing with motherhood doesn't mean we don't love motherhood and/or our children any less - it just means we're normal. This book is definitely for those of us who are able to find humor in motherhood, are not perfect and are able to laugh at ourselves on a regular basis.

    Definitely something to read after a bad day wtih a 2-year-old!!

    I have a 3 year old son, and after a bad day with him, I open this book and laugh so hard, my stomach hurts and tears are streaming down my face!!! This mother of 4 has been there, and though it isn't typical advice she gives or advice from your pediatrician's office, it is good, common sense advice of what worked for her. It is extremely funny. And, yes, answers from her don't come easy without a story behind it. But it is exactly what I needed after a hard day with a toddler. This is the first of the group I had received, and if I'd have known about her books before, I would have made a point to purchase them. This book is awesome!!!
