Critic Reviews

"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.

Wish I'd read this when my boys were little!

Kids are hard wired to make us feel guilty and break our hearts when we don't feel the gratitude that every super mom deserves!! Read this book and forgive yourself for being imperfect. Thanks Ladies for being brave enough to share this sinister honesty.... its about time.

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 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.

Not what I expected

This book is garbage. It's not funny and it was not worth the money. I would not recommend it to anyone.

I expected a more funny, entertaining -relate to kind of book, and this was trashy and tired.

Love, Love, Love!!

As an “old mom” of a 3.5 year old and 1.5 year old, I can relate to the content of this book. I appreciate the humor and the advice hidden among the cynicism. This audiobook is very clever, the authors did a very nice job. The narrator really elicits the chuckles. It’s great. My husband and I laughed along together and I gifted the audiobook to my girlfriend/fellow mom.

Relatable content and funny parts

This book will make you giggle and it’s fun to listen to. Most didn’t apply to me and I wouldn’t take all the advice seriously but it definitely did make me feel better in general as a parent and gave some good pointers. Helps you view what more laid back parenting would be and you can take it or leave it. Worth listening to, just once
