It seems that these days, there are no good mothers for a variety of reasons. If you go to work, you're inattentive to your kids, and if you stay home with them, you're overbearing. If you punish them, they will end up with psychological problems, and if you let them run loose, they will be involved with drugs by the time they reach middle school. It's not surprising that many women consider themselves at one time or another as bad mothers. This book is written with extraordinary frankness and it gives very funny and useful advice throughout. How do you handle it when your daughter dresses up inappropriately for Halloween? In this cynical, direct and very intuitive narrative on modern motherhood, the author says it's time for women to get over it and get on with life.
