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.

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.

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.

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.

Would not recommend this book to anyone

I expected the book to be funny, but found myself just dying for it to be over. I enjoy sarcasm and a good b%^*h-fest, but this was just depressing. I hope, for her family and friends sakes, that writing this type of material is just not in her wheelhouse, because she would be miserable to be around if this was anywhere near a reflection of herself. If you’ve overdosed on Zoloft and need to come back down, listen to this. Otherwise avoid at all cost.

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.

Super hilarious; get ready for a good laugh!

If you’re faint hearted and don’t like cuss words ... get over it and get a sense of humor! This is super hilarious. I haven’t had time to sit and read a book in probably a year, so I tried the Audible app. I played this for two days when possible and couldn’t listen to it fast enough. SO HILARIOUS! Many times you’ll find yourself thinking, GLAD SOMEONE ELSE SAID IT OUT LOUD. The thing I love most about life is being a mother, and this is a fantastic read for all moms!

Good Book

What made the experience of listening to Sh*tty Mom the most enjoyable?

This book showed me I am not alone. I always question my parenting skills but this book help me realize that we are not perfect. Motherhood is a learning process
