Confessions of a Bad Mother
Funny, acutely observed, frighteningly honest and drawing on her own and hundreds of other mum's real experiences, Stephanie Calman serves up the perfect antidote to all those books that tell you that your children must be perfect, and to all those Stepford mums and kids out there who look as if they just might be: perfectly groomed, perfectly behaved and perfectly brilliant. The reality, as we all know, encompasses sleepless nights, no sex for years, baby sick on your best cashmere cardy, the terrible twos and then, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the sitting room, terrible teenagers whose only means of communication is the slamming door or the grunt.
Entertaining ... bites back on behalf of all women who disobey the perfect-mummy manuals and muddle through in their own way
Plenty to make parents laugh out loud with recognition...one to read with a large glass of wine once all the little monsters are tucked up in bed
A no-holds-barred look at mothering and it's all the better for it...tells it like it is
