A hilarious, tongue-firmly-in-cheek look at a promising new trend in parenting: being the boss! In this day and age - when parenting books are a dime a dozen - it's easy for a mom to get confused. Do you go democratic or hover like a helicopter? Do you take a tiger-ish approach, or something more "hands off," like those French women who supposedly raise perfect children? Parenting author and humourist Kathy Buckworth has a completely different idea: Why not let the boardroom be your guide?
In Shut Up and Eat!, humorist and parenting author Kathy Buckworth applies her razor-sharp wit to the family meal.

Laugh-out-loud funny and more accurate than most of us would care to admit Shut Up and Eat! is a must-listen for any woman who’s ever wondered: What the hell am I cooking tonight?
In her latest book, popular humorist and parenting writer Kathy Buckworth takes a good, hard look at what happens when high-powered corporate moms decide to hang up their briefcases and venture into the uncharted waters of the stay-at-home world.
