Surviving Myth Conceptions of Postmodern Parenting...through Good Times and BadBook - 2005
In the vein of Robert Fulghum's sage advice and Erma Bombeck's humor, Katherine Grace shares the triumphs and disasters of mothering in the complex times of the 21st century. Through a series of 22 commonly held myths, she subtly probes, interprets, and questions common perceptions, while relaying the candid reality of her on-the-job experience. Her humorous, heartwarming sketches touch upon everyday life and misconceptions ranging from "I Will Maintain My Sanity in Spite of My Children" and "No Means No," to "I Will Know What My Children Are Up To at All Times" and "Honesty Is the Best Policy." She not only celebrates the rewards of mothering, but also provides a balanced view of the positives and negatives involved, and ultimately concludes that a lively sense of humor is a mom's most trusted ally.
