Alpert explains how she's raising her kids to become halfway decent adults, sharing her wisdom on topics like self-sufficiency (You are not your kiddo's servant), creativity (Picasso's mom didn't tell him to draw the eyes in the right place); discipline (If they say "I hate you,? then you're probably doing it right); and much more. By a regular mom, for regular moms, this guide is as entertaining as it is easy to follow. Along with hilarious real-life exchanges with her own kids, Alpert also includes prescriptive lists and amusing illustrations. The unfiltered advice in this book makes it a must-read for any parent with a sense of humor.
