You may read every parenting guru from Dr. Brazelton to Dr. Sears and you may relentlessly quiz your friends who have children, but the truth of the matter is that no one will tell you what parenting is really like. Why all the secrecy' Other parents are just too exhausted to warn the rest of us. Fortunately, best-selling humorist Rohan Candappa summoned just enough energy after trying to keep his own small tyrants entertained all day to write this brilliantly pithy, scorchingly funny book on how to survive life with small children. Finally, a parenting book with a difference'he's on your side.ON SLEEPING PATTERSYeah, right.TANTRUMS Are ugly, irritating, and, in public places, can be extremely embarrassing, but sometimes they're the only way to get your child to do what you want them to.WHY SMALL CHILDREN CAN BE AS INTIMIDATING AS CERTAIN CELEBRITIESBecause they seek attention all the time. And they don't care how annoyingly they act in order to get it. Put this book at the top of the list of things every new parent needs'along with a good night's sleep and a bottle of merlot.
