Good read, but horrible language
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2006
This book does capture a fairly diverse view of parenting toddlers, and I am really enjoying seeing myself and my friends in the stories that are aimed specifically at this crazy age group. However, I wasn't prepared for the language I found in several of the stories. If you routinely yell, "f---" or "s---" in response to your kids actions, then you might not think twice about it. I'll admit to letting "damn" slip out a couple of times, but I have never used some of these other words in front of anyone, especially my kids. And I agree with the previous reviewer who was a little shocked by the story where the mom is thinking of graphic sexual phrases in response to a teacher's comment about her preschooler. "Shame, shame," indeed. Overall, this an okay read if you can get past some of it's shortcomings.
