Overview

A glimpse into the tribulations of parenting that is part documentary, part therapy, and completely hilarious.
 
It all started when busy father Greg Pembroke posted a few pictures online of his three-year-old son, mid-tantrum, alongside the reason his son was crying: He had broken his bit of cheese in half. In Reasons My Kid is Crying, Greg collects together photos sent from parents around the world, documenting the many, completely logical reasons why small children cry.  Among them: “I let him play on the grass” . . . “He ran out of toys to throw into his pool” . . . “The neighbor’s dog isn’t outside”.  The result is both an affectionate portrait of the universal, baffling logic of toddlers—and a reminder for burned-out parents everywhere that they are not alone.

    In this hilarious book, the author shares pictures and quotes from parents capturing their own children having epic meltdowns over the most bizarre reasons. 

    As a parent, there is no way to deny that all of my kids have had a memorable moment or two that left me shaking my head in wonder - why is my child crying? Why is he so hysterical that his shoe is untied? Why did he just throw himself onto the floor because I used the red cup for his juice and not the yellow? And one of the best - he's crying because I wouldn't let him drink water out of the toilet! 
    All of the pictures and subtitles in the book are just that - moments our toddlers have had either do to their own reasoning or just common sense that these little babies haven't acquired yet. 

    The author, Greg Penbroke, originally started this trend when he started to share his own kid's breakdowns on his tumblr/blog. He then started to include pictures of other children from around the world when their parents started sharing pictures that they have captured as well. It has since become a well-known trend among families and friends to share these adorable yet questioning things that causes these little ones to have the most bizarre reactions.

    Definitely a laugh-out-loud book to share with other family members over and over again. 


    I received a paperback from "Blogging for Books" for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

    I don't have kids. I'm too old to remember being a kid. I do rem

    I don't have kids. I'm too old to remember being a kid. I do remember the time my younger cousin Andrew cried because his mom bought him new G.I. Joe underpants but wouldn't let him take the package of them into the baseball stadium with us. With the privilege of being at a distance from childhood tantrums, I find them hilarious.That's why I chose to read Reasons My Kid Is Crying by Greg Pembroke. Some of the reasons for the unhappy faces and tears captured in the submissions therein are perfectly understandable, even from an adult's point of view. "I took the glass of red wine away from her" is a reason I cry, too.

    Others are explicable only in toddler logic. "I asked her to please stop licking the bottom of her shoe," for example. Seems like a perfectly reasonable request to me, but apparently to a small child it is Ragnarok itself.

    Interspersed between the silly photos and even sillier reasons why are Pembroke's observations on being a stay-at-home dad with his own sons. This book would make a perfect gift for parents who are expecting their first child - let them be warned in advance.

    I read this book out loud to my husband. He declared it "f****ng hilarious." I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
