As hilarious as it is universal, each chapter presents a common parenting scenario with advice on how to get through it in the easiest and most efficient way possible. With chapters such as How to Sleep Until 9 A.M. Every Weekend and When Seeing an Infant Triggers a Mental Illness That Makes You Want to Have Another Baby, as well as a Sh*tty Mom quiz, this is a must-have, laugh-out-loud funny book for the sh*tty parent in all of us.

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

“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)

“Hilariously entertaining. A must-read survivor’s guide for every mother!”—Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts

“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
