Motherhood Smotherhood: Fighting Back Against the Lactivists, Mompetitions, Germophobes, and So-Called Experts Who Are Driving Us CrazyMotherhood Smotherhood: Fighting Back Against the Lactivists, Mompetitions, Germophobes, and So-Called Experts Who Are Driving Us Crazy by J.J. Keith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A humorous, but smart and sensible book about the problems and concerns of contemporary parenting. While the focus is on motherhood and its problems, I found a lot I could relate to as a stay-at-home dad. Parenting these days has become almost religious in its dogma and everyone is too eager to leap upon mistakes or conscious choices they do not agree with. The book in a funny way reminds us that parenting is a hard job, that we are all trying our best, and that everyone must choose his/her own path, a much needed message amidst the slew of parenting books out there.

Oh, this sounds like just what I need less than a week from my delivery date. I've been doing reasonably well on the baby book front, but there's just so much crazy out there.
