Praise for Sh*tty Mom:

“A totally hilarious and uncensored look at some of the impossible situations we mothers find ourselves in.” —TheBump.com

“Smartly, brashly, nearly criminally funny. It also—no small thing—carries a powerful message to all parents, but especially moms, that distilled to its essence is this: chill.” —Time.com

“As the attachment parenting craze has hit a zenith in American culture, four very funny moms—comedy writers, TV producers, and a novelist—blast open a long-locked safe filled with frustrations faced by all modern mothers, with sympathetic and sharp humor. . . . The authors’ unfiltered candor is a welcome reminder for readers that they're not alone. . . .” —Publishers Weekly starred review

“Both funny and practical.” —Brooklyn Based.net

"Hilariously entertaining. A must-read survivor's guide for every mother!"
--Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts

“Finally, Sh*tty Mom does for motherhood what Chelsea Handler does for female scatology. It’s a long overdue little burst of honesty from the supposed minority of mothers who are, in fact, not that maternal. . . . After a generation of supermoms one-upping each other in dead earnest on playgrounds and schoolyards, the emerging mass appeal of Sh*tty Mom is a welcome relief.” —The New York Observer

"Witty, wise, and wicked! With tongue planted firmly in cheek, these savvy moms dispense some much needed comic relief about raising kids in our crazy culture."?
--Dr. Harvey Karp, bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block

“The most inappropriate parenting book I've ever read. Loved it. The perfect book for any mother who wants to laugh instead of cry at those cringe-worthy moments and the universal indignities we experience on a daily basis.”
--Jessica Seinfeld, bestselling cookbook author and founder of Baby Buggy

“An antidote to the hostage situation that is modern parenting…subversive, delicious, and spit-out-your-latte funny.”
--Pamela Druckerman, bestselling author of Bringing Up Bebe

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
As the attachment parenting craze has hit a zenith in American culture, four very funny moms—comedy writers, TV producers, and a novelist—blast open a long-locked safe filled with frustrations faced by all modern mothers, with sympathetic and sharp humor. On the grave matter of discovering your kid is merely average, they ask, "Is your child ?--òslow' or is he a boy?" In a section called "Stop Not Taking the Easy Way Out" they offer useful tips on "How to Drop Off Your Sick Kid at Daycare Before the Teacher Figures It Out." The joking confirms the simple truth that in today's world women are often forced to be self-denying or risk the judgment of others, especially other women, that they are bad mothers. The authors' unfiltered candor is a welcome reminder for readers that they're not alone in facing that trap. But if readers takes the advice of the authors to heart, they shouldn't expect a thank-you note (per Chapter 15: "This Tradition Must Die: Handwritten Thank-you Notes").

    She hoisted herself in a tree and leaned her back against the trunk. She sighed. "Im going to go try and tame some wild cheetahs... you wanna come?" She pulled out a dark purple-red lipstick and lightly blotted it on her lips. She rubbed her lips in.
