Parenting books are full of guides and how-to’s on how to be the perfect mom or dad. ‘Sh*tty Mom,’ on the other hand, is an anecdotal story of parenting woes and hilarious situations where moms alike can gather and relate. This book is written by four mothers; Laurie Kilmartin, Karen Moline, Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Anne Zellner.

Part of being a parent is accepting that you can’t be the perfect role model for your kids all the time, sometimes you screw up and the important of accepting yourself is part of growing, “We’ve all been there, between a rock and mom place”. This book is hilarious, universal and each chapter presents a common parenting scenario with advice on how to get through it efficiently and easily. Definitely a must have for new or experienced parents.
