Parenting for Legends

(7 customer reviews)


I’m not here to tell you how to be the perfect parent… I’M HERE TO TELL YOU THE BLOODY TRUTH ABOUT PARENTHOOD!

When a baby arrives you aren’t gifted with an unlimited supply of patience and virtue — all you’re rewarded with is a torn perineum and a lifelong commitment to someone you literally just met. But something that does happen when you welcome a child into your life is: you just want to do right by the little sods. So how do you balance out that insatiable need to parent like a goddamn champ while also not exhausting yourself?

Parenting for Legends is a hilarious, uncensored guide to parenting young children, filled with confessions, tips and stories from an irreverent mum of two young boys. This honest and frank account of parenthood will have you in stitches and bring you gently back to reality with sprinklings of sage advice.

With chapters such as, ‘What to really bloody expect when you’re expecting’, ‘Sometimes at night you want to put them in the bin’, and ‘Your relationships might take a punch to the willy’, this book gives an honest but very entertaining account on the realities of parenthood.

You’ll love it.
