Publisher's Summary

Sh*tty Mom is the ultimate parenting guide, written by four moms who have seen it all. 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 audiobook for the sh*tty parent in all of us.

What the Critics Say

"A totally hilarious and uncensored look at some of the impossible situations we mothers find ourselves in." (TheBump.com)

"Smartly, brashly, nearly criminally funny. It also - no small thing - carries a powerful message to all parents, but especially moms, that distilled to its essence is this: chill." (Time.com)

"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)

    "Laugh out loud funny!"

    So funny, I was actually laughing out loud. My kids looked at me like I was crazy. These women should write a book geared towards moms with younger kids who are close together.

    "Real, down to earth, raw and hilarious!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sh*tty Mom to be better than the print version?

    I have no time to read so audio was perfect.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Everything!!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Sh*tty Mom?

    Everything.


    Any additional comments?

    I think all moms should read this. It applies to all of us. The only ones that should not read are those who take offense to foul language.

    "A bit much"

    It was funny but sometimes a bit vulgar for what I was looking for. It seemed a little too targeted for its humor in some parts.

    "Can you say HILARIOUS"

    If you take things too literal or aim to be perfect this book isn't for you. If you want an entertaining feel good book to listen to/ read this is perfect! The narrator did an amazing job and I felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend.

    "Worst book EVER!!"

    I thought this book was "the Shotty Mom" like a British, comedic version of mommy woes, dos and don'ts...Nope. Just a Shitty Mom book that just burned my ears and was barely tolerable through 1 chapter!! Do not buy!!

    "Funny but narration was monotonous"

    It was pretty funny. A few bits were too dark but I did laugh out loud a couple times. Narration was terrible. Flat and monotonous. The whole time I was repeating the words in my head in how I thought it would have been said.

    "A little trite"

    Her voice drove me crazy! I'm all for sarcasm and humor when it comes to the huge job of being a busy mom but this was just weird and spoke down to the reader. Don't bother.
