Are you a mother of a screaming baby, a negative toddler or an annoying teenager? Here’s finally a solution that doesn’t include hurting your child.

Let’s face it: motherhood, in all its glory, gives you so many reasons for bad moods. From stretch marks to all-consuming guilt, from toddler tantrums to teenage sulks – sometimes you wish you could put just press pause and put it all on hold, but you can’t. This taboo-breaking adult activity book encourages all mothers to vent safely, continuing the cranky path of the international bestseller “The Little Book of Bad Moods”.

Suitable for all mothers, from those with screaming babies, to those with intolerable grownup children. List the dumbest parenting advice you’ve been given, the most useless purchases, and reveal your biggest mistakes as a mother!

“A hilarious book to express your negative feelings: cathartic and awesome!” – Isabelle Dubois, non-fiction publisher, Le Livre de Poche, France on The Little Book of Bad Moods
