Don't be distracted by Laithland's sarcasm, wit, and snark - this book is a refreshing, informative look at parenting. I found her approach to be extremely relatable and really appreciated the actionable steps and ideas that were in each chapter. Laithland strikes the perfect balance between practical and anecdotal, and I highly recommend this to parents at any stage.
