Overview

When the diapers come off, mothers trade poop for a whole new set of issues that are a whole lot harder to dispose of. Molding little minds is a challenging journey that parents undertake without the help of a map, a GPS, or even a flashlight. We wade through complex issues like religion, diversity, and body image with little people who have little use for political correctness and who often disagree with our world-views.

Girls Gone Child is about the transition from raising babies to raising children and all that it entails. It is a real, honest, and often bawdy examination of what kids say, what they think, and how we as perpetually imperfect parents handle their foibles as well as our own. It is also about what we as adults learn about ourselves in the process of molding little minds. It forces us to re-examine our own views, our own prejudices, and our own shortcomings.

Amanda's youngest daughter regularly points out "large" people in public, forcing her to make dramatic evasive moves with her shopping cart. He older daughter has developed an unnatural fascination with "little people" (a.k.a. midgets). They are unfiltered and unapologetic as they announce to anyone who will listen that they fart, that black people are really "brown," and that their grandmother might be pregnant because she has a "round tummy."

Amanda Lamb takes a laugh-out-loud view on parenting in Girls Gone Child. It is the natural continuation of the journey. Mothers who are balancing children, career, and the demands of home will relate to her raw, tender and hysterical stories about those moments where we simply don't have the answers and know we should.
