Harried with Children

Overview

Karen Linamen proves that in the wild and wacky world of family life, these sayings hold water about as well as a pair of wet pantyhose. Debunking twenty-two familiar myths, she offers sidesplitting observations and commonsense solutions on everything from lethal lunchbox leftovers to the postnatal body. Through it all, Karen inspires, informs, and entertains as she celebrates the offbeat upside of family life.
