Overview

Are you a parent? Do you have friends who are parents? Do you have parents? Then chances are you’ve been exposed to the growing online phenomenon known as overshare.

From posting photos of baby’s first poo and the intricacies of placental crafts to sanctimommies declaring their child the most beautiful kid in the world and criticizing the parenting skills of fellow Facebook “friends,” STFU, Parents collects the most bizarre, hilarious, and horrifying examples of oversharing on the web. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe at detailed descriptions of baby’s first blowout, but one thing’s for sure: You’ll never look at parenting the same again.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Koenig, the single woman’s antidote to mommy bloggers, has taken the most egregious examples of parental oversharing and compiled them into a hilarious book that even proud mamas and papas will enjoy.
Star

There's something about the sheer existential weight of so much fatuous and inappropriate oversharing of the details of the life of an independent organism which is well-suited to book form. Recommended. Perhaps for pregnant people.
The Hairpin

I recommend it to any parent who wants to know how not to act, and any childless person who wants to commiserate over the obnoxiousness of parents in the Facebook generation.
Pajiba

As much as it pains me to admit this (considering I have a 7-year-old daughter), sometimes I'm embarrassed to be a mom. So embarrassed that I read the new STFU Parents book with a box of tissues beside me; some for the tears from my hysterical laughter, some to drown my sorrows that I'm associated with these oversharing nitwits.
The Stir

“[A] public service to both people with kids and without, teaching both camps important lessons about how to be less offensive and clueless.”
