Tiger Mom vs. Lager Mom Family / Huffington Post

A recent book about the phenomenon of “Tiger Moms” caused quite a stir in the parenting community. I’m not going to name it, because then you might buy her book instead of mine, and frankly, I think she’s doing okay. And it would just prove that HER mother was right, if she’s more successful than me. Basically the premise of the book is that the...

Zombie Moms: Losing Sleep Over Kids at Any Age Family / Huffington Post

The huge on-line success of the book Go the F**k to Sleep is due mainly to one thing: Every single parent in the world has uttered these words, either in their inside or outside voice.

  • Throwback to 2018. This is still one of my favourite family pics. Yes. Yes I told them all to look and laugh at each other in a fake way. It worked, right?
  • From Hamilton to Halifax I couldn’t stop talking this morning. Thanks for having me on @chch_morninglive to talk about books that take you away, and @ctvatlantic for how to get started on writing that book of your own! (With a quick outfit change in between)
