It's a Bestseller!

“I’ll be honest, if it wasn’t for the title of this book, I may not have picked it up. I was decidedly done with parenting books – they always seemed to make me feel like a bad parent, and their advice was just about impossible in a real-world setting. Not this book. Dr. Naumburg gets you, she really does. Not only did I laugh out loud plenty, I literally yelled out, “yes! yes!! exactly!!” multiple times. Since reading this gem of a book, I have felt better about myself as a parent, and I bet you will too.”
