Publisher's Summary

When does 1 + 1 = 3 (or more)? When you've got a baby on the way.

Part of that new math, says number-one New York Times best-selling author Jill Conner Browne, whom USA Today calls "just plain funny", includes the addition of an outsize sense of humor to balance the equation of your growing family.

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, for anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one, knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable - so, you might as well laugh!

As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey together as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of "knowledge", the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time.

Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love - or the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever - and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide.

  • How to Talk to a Pregnant Woman
  • How the Diamonds on Delivery Policy Can Speed Up the Labor Nature Intended
  • Why a Good Mother Is Always Adept at Subterfuge
  • The List of Things You Wouldn't Think You Would Have to Tell Kids Not to Do
  • Why Mothers of Sons Can Never Retire
  • Why, for Parents, It's Just a Short Drive to the Poorhouse

    The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will have everyone who's ever been a parent (or ever thought of becoming one, or been a child, or is still one) giggling and grinning (no small feat) through those child-bearing years...and beyond.

    Still hungry? Listen to more from the Sweet Potato Queens.

      "Loved it!"

      I waited a long time for this book to become available on Audible, and it was well worth the wait. If you loved the other SPQ books, you won't be disappointed. If you're a Mom, you will appreciate the wit and insight of this amazing woman.

      "Not a let down"

      Having listened to other SPQ audiobooks, I can safely say that the Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit was on par with the rest. Jill Conner-Brown never fails to entertain me. An excellent blend of humor, entertainment, and advice; her material is relevant and witty. Her voice also adds to the material with it's soothing southern lilt. The recipes are actually quite good, to boot.
