A delightfully refreshing look at the joys of parenthood, and particularly motherhood. Libby Purves picks up where the fun and interesting toddler books leave off, without preaching and with a realistic appraisal of the joys and horrors of 3-8 year-olds. Her chapter on small children's parties alone is a must-read.

This is a very funny, well writen book for any PARENT or any HR MANAGER.Many of the pratices of parents are the same as those practiced by HRpeople on live grown-ups (Human Resources). Many of the lessons in thisbook strike a cord of similarity with the 'One Minute Manager' series ofmanagement books and I can't help but think there's a link betweenmanaging problematic children and managing 'scumbag' employees. It's wellworth a read whether you're a parent, about to become a parent or aManager responsible for grown-ups!
