Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be A-holes: Unfiltered Advice on How to Raise Awesome Kids

By:  Karen Alpert

Also available in:
As fans of Karen Alpert's beloved parenting blog Baby Sideburns know, sometimes kids act like real a-holes, whether it's throwing tantrums at the grocery store, or kicking the airplane seat in front of them, or refusing to brush their teeth at night. But rather than add two more jerks to this world, Alpert is on a mission to mold her children into kind, self-sufficient, law-abiding citizens, and she wants to help you do the same.

In Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be A-Holes, 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.
